You know the 2015 Ford F-150 is an awesome truck. We know the 2015 Ford F-150 is an awesome truck. Now, the folks at USA Today have recognized the 2015 Ford F-150 as an awesome truck. They have announced their list of their five favorite vehicles from 2014, and making the list was the 2015 Ford F-150!

One of the main reasons why they like the truck so much is the extensive use of aluminum. As you know, that saves Ford about 700 lbs of weight. That improves towing and hauling capacity, and makes the truck more fuel efficient. Aluminum has other benefits; never rusting is a prime example. Ford claims that there’ll be fewer parking lot dings by switching to aluminum.

2015 Ford Mustang GT

USA Today also recognized the 2015 Ford Mustang on their top five list. They lauded the EcoBoost 4-cylinder engine, which makes the Mustang “able to chase motorcycles up canyon roads and keep the driver amused at other times as well.” We’re still fans of a V8 engine in a Mustang, but we do think the EcoBoost has potential once it gets into the hands of turners and aftermarket modification companies.

The 2015 F-150 has been recognized a lot lately for it’s new design. It won the official Truck of Texas title. The Detroit News declared it their vehicle of the year. It’s even a finalist for the North American Truck of the Year. It’s been a good year for Ford, and we expect the awards to keep on coming!
