For the second consecutive year, the North American Car, Utility, and Truck awards committee bestowed two of their highest honors on Ford. The Ford Bronco earned the 2022 North American Utility of the Year award while the 2022 North American Truck of the Year award went to the all-new 2022 Ford Maverick.
After rigorous test-driving and research, the panel of 50 jurors (a group of professional automotive journalists) deliberated on qualities such as innovation, design, performance, and economic value. The 2022 Ford Bronco and Maverick delivered across the board.
The 2022 Bronco had its own renowned history to live up to, and it successfully impressed the jury with its modern yet rugged design and off-road capability. Additionally, jurors liked that the technology-packed Bronco was just as comfortable on paved roads — making it perfect for any family adventure.
The fact that the 2022 Maverick is the first standard full-hybrid pickup in the United States is notable on its own, but jurors particularly praised the truck for its affordability, fuel efficiency, and functionality. Whether you are tailgating, heading to the beach, or hauling a new couch, you can count on the Maverick to adapt to your lifestyle.
The 2022 Bronco and Maverick not only won over the jury — the SUV and truck are also winning the popular vote. Models are lasting barely a week on dealer lots, so claim yours soon at Sun State Ford in Orlando, Florida.
