The Ford F-150 – Tough Enough For Texas

HUSTON, Texas, Feb. 21, 2012 - We’ve all heard the saying “Built Ford Tough” what seems like a million times. To make that statement more than a catchphrase, Ford Motor Company really goes out and proves itself time and time again. This time, Ford sent the F-150 down to Texas this past October to wrangle with 45 other entrants for the Texas Truck Rodeo. The F-150 had no trouble snagging the overall “Truck of Texas” award. The F-150 was easily a top contender with Best-in-Class Towing and Best-in-Class Payload backed with 3.7L V6 (or a 3.5L V6 with EcoBoost for enhanced fuel economy), a 5.0L V8, or the whopping 6.2LV8 with 411 horsepower and 434 ft-lbs of torque.

With Best-In-Class Towing and Payload the F-150 will haul whatever you need, wherever you need it
Ford received the “Texas-size” trophy (nearly three feet tall!) at the Huston Auto Show by the Texas Rodeo’s sponsor, the Texas Auto Writers Association. Doug Scott, Ford Truck Group Marketing Manager said, “This award means a lot to us, and we thank the Texas Auto Writers Association for validating what our customers have been telling us about our Built Ford Tough F-150. We appreciate their recognition of the quality of our trucks.”

Ford didn’t stop there, the Ford team picked up seven other honors by the TAWA including:

  • Truck Line of Texas: Ford Motor Company
  • CUV of Texas: 2012 Ford Edge
  • Heavy-Duty Pickup Truck: 2012 Ford F-250 King Ranch Super Duty
  • Luxury Pickup Truck: 2012 Ford F-150 Platinum EcoBoost
  • Full-Size Pickup Truck: 2012 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor
  • Mid-Size CUV: 2012 Ford Edge Limited
  • Outstanding Feature: Ford EcoBoost Engine Technology
