Here’s a construction riddle. What is 700 lbs. lighter than last year, but still provides leading-edge capability and durability? Can you guess? It’s the 2015 Constructech Connected Truck of the Year winner, the F-150 from Ford Motor Co., featuring SYNC.
“In the construction industry the role of the pickup has transitioned from simply a mode of transportation to a critical communication hub, and the battle to come out on top has been a tough one,” says Peggy Smedley, editorial director, Constructech. “The Ford F-150 has made this transition seamlessly, using innovation to drive to the top of the marketplace and making it the 2015 Connected Truck of the Year.”
Chosen by the editorial team at Constructech magazine, the Connected Truck of the Year recognizes one truck for the construction industry based on connectivity and a host of other key technology-driven features. The Connected Truck of the Year award honors the best truck that exemplifies a combination of convenience, safety, and infotainment into a sleek, stylish, and readily available model.
“Today’s contractors need a truck that keeps them connected, serves as a mobile office, and still handles the rugged terrain they encounter on a daily basis,” says Laura Black, editor, Constructech. “The Ford F-150 has found a way to meet those needs, which is why it finds itself named the 2015 Connected Truck of the Year.”
