 The all new 2011 Ford Explorer from Capital Ford, your Regina Ford Dealer was named North American truck of the year! By reinventing the all new 2011 Ford Explorer, it now offers class leading fuel economy, available second row inflatable seat belts and intelligent 4WD with the advanced Terrain Management System which makes this truck deserving of its title.

“It’s a proud moment for Ford, our employees and our customers to have Explorer named North American Truck of the Year,” said Mark Fields, Ford president of The Americas. “Winning this honor for the third consecutive year confirms our One Ford plan is working to deliver vehicles people truly want and value, with industry-leading quality, fuel efficiency, safety and smart technology.”

To be eligable for such a prestegious award, an auto maker must produce a vehicle that is “all new” or “substantially changed” from the previous model, which is what Ford did with the 2011 Explorer. The truck of the year award recognizes innovation, safety, handling, driver satisfaction and value at a reasonable price for consumers.
