Awards That the Aluminum Ford F-150 Has Won

When Ford first announced that they would be getting rid of the steel-built body of the F-150 and replacing it with a new lightweight aluminum body, a countless number of critics surfaced, many who berated Ford for breaking from the mold. Not surprisingly, however, Ford knew what they were doing all along. Those critics have all been silenced now, as the F-150 continues to gain a great deal of popularity. The aluminum skin has not stopped the Ford F-150 from carrying on its best-selling streak. In fact, the new body has only helped the streak.

To show you exactly how popular the Ford F-150 is becoming, we thought it would be interesting to take a closer look at all of the awards that the aluminum Ford F-150 has won since it was released late last year. You may be familiar with a few of them as we have spent quite a bit of time highlighting certain awards here on the Matt Ford blog, but as there are so many, it’s nearly impossible to keep up with them all.

Here are the awards that the F-150 has been able to secure up to this point:

The F-150 trophy case continues to be filled, and it won’t be long before the automaker will be forced to dedicate an entire room to housing the awards for their best-selling pickup. The numerous awards really serve as a testament to what the aluminum F-150 is capable of. Just about every automaker claims that their vehicle is going to change the game, but Ford has actually been able to prove their point.

As you may know, the F-150 was not the only Ford vehicle to be redesigned for the 2015 model year. The iconic Mustang also got a significant facelift to celebrate 50 years on the market, and it is gaining an equal amount of success. It was just named as one of the best affordable sports cars of 2015, an award that has been added to its growing list of wins. Ford is really getting the recognition that they deserve.

If you’re interested in learning more about the award-winning 2015 Ford F-150 or 2015 Ford Mustang, be sure to check out our new car inventory, where you can find both of the redesigned models. You can also feel free to schedule a test drive if you are located in the Kansas City area. We’d be glad to hand over a set of keys so that you can see exactly why these models have been able to win so many awards.
