Dallas, Texas – The 2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor has been named the 2009 Truck of Texas by the Texas Auto Writers Association, the seventh consecutive time a Ford truck has won the award.

The Raptor was also named the Best Full-Size Pickup, while Ford trucks took the Truck Line of Texas, and Outstanding Feature went to Ford Work Solutions, a series of technologies including an in-dash computer, telematics system, tool lock and tool inventory system.

“Winning the Truck of Texas is a distinct honour,” said Mark Fields, president of The Americas at Ford. “Texans know their trucks, and this award is further proof of why the F-150 remains America’s number-one selling pickup. We built F-150 SVT Raptor for truck enthusiasts. And we’re gratified it’s gaining recognition for both its unequalled off-road performance and confidence-inspiring on-road demeanor.”

In total, Ford won eight of 18 awards, including Midsize CUV for the Lincoln MKX, Full-Size CUV for the Ford Flex, Luxury Pickup Truck for the F-150 King Ranch, and Full-Size SUV for the Expedition.
