For the second year in a row, Ford has earned double honors from the North American Car, Utility and truck awards committee (NACTOY), taking home the 2022 North American Utility of the Year award for the 2022 Ford Bronco and the 2022 American Truck of the Year award for the 2022 Ford Maverick.
“We’re thrilled and honored to earn both Truck and Utility of the Year from the NACTOY jury for the Ford Maverick and Bronco, especially among such a strong field of competitors,” said Kumar Galhotra, president, Americas and International Markets Group. “But we’re also proud because these awards are well-deserved recognition for the tremendous amount of work, focus and energy our teams have invested in designing, engineering and building exciting vehicles for our customers. This also reflects the overwhelming reception we’ve had from our Maverick and Bronco customers alike.”
The Ford Bronco, which made its debut back in 2020, continues to be the flagship model of the Ford outdoor brand of 4×4-exclusive Built Wild vehicles. It offers thrilling off-road experiences with heritage-inspired style, rugged engineering, and smart off-road technology.
