Today, America’s best-selling pickup adds one of the industry’s most prestigious honors to its trophy shelf: Motor Trend has named the new Ford F-150 its 2009 Truck of the Year.
To earn this coveted award, the 2009 F-150 outperformed other full-size pickups in rigorous tests that evaluated engineering, technology, design, safety, dynamics, performance, build quality and value. Motor Trend’s editors put each truck through the same kind of punishing treatment that core truck customers do – and the 2009 F-150 showed them why it has no rival.
The easiest way to win $100 is to fill out a Steve Marshall Ford Lincoln survey, as Richard and Margaret found out.
Who will be the next to win??

Sarah MacWhirter, of the Globe and Mail feature GlobeAuto, has been busy testing various vehicles that will fit your burgeoning hockey team for both regular practice and weekend away games, while also including other Family activities that happen during the week.
So far Sarah’s articles have not shown her ultimate decision on the perfect busy sports family vehicle, but she has shown serious love for the Escape Hybrid. Why?
One of the main and first reasons Sarah states: “the Ford Escape hybrid easily clocks 598 kilometres of mixed city and highway driving on only 50 litres of gas. You read that right: The hybrid Escape outperforms, fuel-wise, any of the vehicles I’ve tested for this ultimate hockey vehicle experiment.”
It’s a lovely article and the MacWhirter family and friends have put the Escape to the test.
