The new Ford Trucks tractor F-MAX, which was launched at IAA Commercial Vehicles 2018 in Hanover, Germany, has won the “2019 International Truck of the Year” award. The prestigious award of the heavy commercial vehicles industry was presented by Gianenrico Griffini, chairman of the International Truck of the Year (IToY) jury, to Haydar Yenigün, Ford Otosan General Manager at the Ford Trucks stand at IAA Commercial Vehicles 2018.

Members of the International Truck of the Year (IToY) jury, which consists of leading trade journalists from 23 European countries, carried out a strict evaluation process to choose the 2019 International Truck of the Year. After being put through its paces in the road tests in different categories and static assessments, the F-MAX underwent a rigorous assessment covering key criteria such as technological innovation, comfort, safety, drivability, fuel economy, environmental footprint and Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). The F-Max scored the highest number of points, finishing ahead of its competitors and winning the “2019 International Truck of the Year” award. 

Haydar Yenigün: “Winning the International Truck of the Year Award is a very important step toward our future” 

Haydar Yenigün, Ford Otosan General Manager, maintains that the F-MAX, with its 2.5-meter full-width cab and 500 PS engine power, will become a major player in the international transport industry. “The all new Ford Trucks F-MAX, is a global player with its 13-liter, 500 PS and 2500 Nm Ecotorq engine. Our modern design language based on prestige and power combines professionalism and innovation, while superior aerodynamics, optimum calibration and technical specifications of powertrain and transmission, reduce fuel consumption by 6% compared to the current model. The new tractor also decreases maintenance costs by up to 7% and offers longer maintenance intervals, delivering lower total cost of ownership. The F-MAX also offers industry the revolutionary ConnecTruck technology, which means that the F-MAX is Ford’s first heavy commercial vehicle with connectivity features. Our new tractor is the product of five years of research and development.

After successfully completing 5 million kilometers of road tests in 11 countries on four continents, the F-MAX will set a new benchmark in the international transport industry.
