The 2015 Ford F-150 is the proud recipient of the Truck Line of Texas award. This is no small feat as Texas has the largest truck market in the country. The Texas Auto Writers Association tested 75 other vehicles from 18 brands before deciding on the F-150, calling it the “clear choice”.
Ford president Joe Hinrichs said, “TAWA members are among the first to experience the all-new F-150’s breakthrough innovations and best-in-class capabilities, features that will help our hardworking customers improve their productivity.”
The 2015 model truly lives up to the motto “Built Ford Tough”. The experts at Ford used the same military-grade aluminum alloy that’s used in aerospace, energy, and commercial transportation industries throughout the body of the F-150. Thanks to weight improvements and engine technology advancements, it can pull 1,100 more pounds and haul 530 more pounds than its predecessor.
The accolades for the 2015 F-150 didn’t stop at “Truck Line of Texas”. America’s favorite truck also received awards in the following categories.
Truck of Texas: 2015 Ford F-150
Truck Line of Texas: Ford Motor Company Luxury Pickup
