Toronto – Ford Motor Company of Canada Ltd. was a winner at the 2015 Canadian International Auto Show, claiming top spot as the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada’s (AJAC) Utility Vehicle of the Year with the 2015 Ford F-150. The F-150 had previous won the association’s 2015 Truck of the Year category.
The F-150 is the first light duty truck to be built using a high-strength, all-aluminum alloy body, making it more efficient and capable than before.
The F-series has been Canada’s best-selling truck for 49 consecutive years, and F-150 has been the top-selling vehicle in the country for the past five years.
“We are honoured that the 2015 F-150 has been named AJAC’s 2015 Truck of the Year,” said Dianne Craig, president and CEO, Ford of Canada. “Our game-changing use of aluminum alloy is raising the competitive bar for pick-ups and we are humbled to be considered an innovator in the industry, committed to providing our customers the most capable and fuel efficient pick-up ever.”
Through the ratings of AJAC’s panel of judges, the 2015 F-150 won the highly competitive Utility Vehicle category, coming out on top of the Porsche Macan and Subaru Outlander.
At the auto show, AJAC also named the Subaru Legacy as the 2015 Canadian Car of the Year. The all-wheel drive sedan had previously won its category of ‘Best New Family Car under $30,000’.
