The only reason the Chevy won was because there wasn't a Ram in the contest.


Not a good start for Ford, but I can't wait to see why it lost to a VAN once the article comes out.

Some teasers for Y's.

http://money.cnn.com/2014/12/03/auto...k-of-the-year/

"The Ford F-150 didn't win because, although its all-aluminum construction is revolutionary, that didn't translate to improvements that customers would notice, Loh said. The truck is quicker and gets slightly better fuel economy than other trucks, he said, but the gains aren't huge."

http://www.foxnews.com/leisure/2014/...nd-truck-year/

"The all-new version of the perennial top-selling F-150 finished third in the voting behind the Ford Transit full-size van, which the editors found surprisingly fun to drive despite its enormous cargo carrying capability. The F-150 lost points due to its disappointing real world fuel economy and ride quality, but scored high marks for its power and innovative features."

The F-150 lost points due to its disappointing real world fuel economy and ride quality,

It does make sense that the 2.7L Ecoboost would have trouble reaching its EPA MPG like the 3.5L Ecoboost does. Its either eco or boost, not both at the same time.
