Hey all. I wanted to tell you about a great award that the Ford F-150 won. Now I know most of you do not know this, but the Ford F-150 won the “Truck of the Year” award which is announced by Motor Trend Magazine. One of the big reasons that this truck won this award was because of its Turbocharged EcoBoost engine. This engine mixes efficiency with power. In fact, this engine is more powerful than the regular 5.0 L V-8 one. The 2011 Ford F-150 can also tow more than the 5 L V-8 when equipped with this engine.

So far we have not seen Chrysler offer a hybrid, but since Fiat has acquired Chrysler, it seems to be spending it’s time developing full electrics, or plug in hybrids with a small range extending gasoline engine a-la Chevy volt. There’s also been talk of an all electric version of Fiat’s 500 mini car. Chrysler is testing out a fleet of all electric Town and Country Minivans with the US Postal Service for mail delivery. Specially equipped Postal stations involved in the program will provide the necessary infrastructure for charging the vans.
