Ford Wins Two Prestigious North American Car of the Year Awards

Ford Maverick | La Grange Ford | La Grange, TX

After days of research and evaluation, the results are in: the 2022 Ford Maverick is the North American Truck of the Year, and the 2022 Ford Bronco is the North American Utility Vehicle of the Year.

The Maverick and the Bronco have been pulling in accolades left and right, but these are particularly impressive. The judging panel was comprised of a total of 50 automotive journalists, representing a deep well of automotive knowledge, who spend days putting each vehicle through its paces. Candidates for this award are judged on a number of factors, including innovation, safety, driver satisfaction, and value.

Despite this year proving unusually competitive for the truck award, the Maverick impressed in particular with its excellent gas mileage, the best for any truck on the market thanks to its standard hybrid engine, and its entry-level pricing.

The SUV category is always competitive, given how popular that vehicle style is, but the Bronco was recognized for its off-road capability and smart technology. As one of the judges put it, “Ford has pulled out the stops to create a very credible competitor to that other four-letter off-road brand.”

This is the second time in a row that Ford claims two of the three prestigious North American Car of the Year awards, a truly impressive feat. Come check out either — or both! — of these lauded new vehicles at La Grange Ford!
