Ford F-150 awarded Motor Trend’s 2012 Truck of the Year

2012 Ford F-150

The 2012 Ford F-150 has been named Motor Trend’s 2012 Truck of the Year.

While the new F-150 wasn’t significantly redesigned for the 2012 model year, Ford did revamp its engine lineup with the V6 EcoBoost powertrain.

“The EcoBoost is the obvious orange in the apple crate here,” Motor Trend said. “Ford’s throwing a gasoline direct-injection, twin-turbo-fed V-6 under the hood of a full-size truck is almost enough to knock the earth off its axis. What’s even more shocking is that an engine that looks like it would be at home mid-mounted in a sports car is actually better than any of the eight-piston offerings in maybe any company’s lineup.”
