It’s exciting when one vehicle in your lineup is singled out for an award – but when you have two fantastic vehicles honored, it’s a really great day.
After hundreds of hours of test drives, research, and evaluation, the Ford F-150 was named North American Truck of the Year™, and the Ford Mustang Mach-E was chosen as North American Utility Vehicle of the Year™ by the independent jurors of the North American Car, Truck and Utility Vehicle of the Year (NACTOY) Awards™.
"Seeing the Ford F-150 and Mustang Mach-E receive these awards is a testament to the quality and amazing engineering the Ford brand brings to its customers," New Car Manager Adam Griffith said. "Ford once again has brought things to a new level."
The 2021 model continues Ford’s trend of taking things to the next level. The F-150 delivers the right features and capabilities, combining innovation, comfort, and style, which is why it earned Truck of the Year.
A top-selling truck in Bismarck, it’s bolder and smarter than ever, with updates to the front, sides, and back of the truck, inside and out. Ford reimagined the interior, as well, focusing on the driver and passengers’ needs for both work and recreation.
Innovative technology isn’t just on the interior. Ford is looking to the future, introducing the all-new 3.5L PowerBoost Full Hybrid V6 engine. And it’s onboard generator was used by some homeowners in Texas after they lost power in February.
"The new 2021 Ford F-150 really does break down some barriers in today's modern truck market," Griffith said. "Incorporating more technology and performance the new F-150 has really challenged other trucks to raise their game."
This reimagining of an iconic vehicle is bound to turn heads – especially when they realize it’s a completely electric SUV.
The 2021 Mach-E drives up to 300 miles on one charge. It’s an EV you can appreciate, combining both power and technology. You can feel good about driving it, since it’s releasing zero harmful emissions, but also enjoy the power of the drive, as it can go from 0-60 in 3.5 seconds.
"We're all very excited about bringing the 2021 Mustang Mach-E to Bismarck," Griffith said. "The electric vehicle market is growing and our customers are more than ready to be driving the Mach-E. With all the features, speed and technology, this affordable electric SUV is ideal for any North Dakota driver."
Whether you’re interested in the Mach-E, the F-Series or another Ford vehicle, Eide Ford is the place to find it in Bismarck.
