Ford’s commercial vehicle range has been one of the most successful collections of cars ever produced. Carefully tailored to bring consumers exactly what they desire, the company created an identity that synonymous with superior quality and responsive design. Not surprisingly, this precision has earned the company a series of awards. As each recognises the hard work placed in crafting each vehicles, let’s take a look and see exactly what they received.
Over several months Ford has won an impressive collection of 25 top awards- more awards than in any other year. Amongst these included the International Van of the Year 2013 as well as ‘van of the year’ accolades from VansA2Z, Auto Express and What Van? titles.
Perhaps the most recognised of these vehicles was the Ford Ranger, which was launched in 2011. The range impressed many judges winning three ‘best pick-up’ awards and overall International Pick-up of the Year in 2013, making it a worthy selection for anyone looking for a good pick-up.
Additionally, the company also claimed two awards for their overall performance, snapping up the ‘van manufacturer of the year’ from Fleet Van and Van Fleet World publications.
Mark Ovenden, Ford Britain chairman and managing director, recently commented on these wins by saying: “Ford customers have the best-looking, most technologically advanced, fuel-efficient and fit-for-purpose CV range ever to choose from, and this is reflected in our outstanding awards success.
He continued: “On top of the launch investment committed for these new class-leading Transit models, Ford of Britain is investing heavily in its CV sales and aftercare infrastructure in the UK, launching 100 dedicated Transit Centres over the next 12 months.”
