SAN ANTONIO, Texas – Cars.com, the premier online resource for buying and selling new and used vehicles, and PickupTrucks.com, an authoritative site for pickup truck news and reviews, announced that the Ford F-150 has been named the 2011 "Truck of the Fair" at the State Fair of Texas. During the three week fair, attendees were given the power to be the critics and vote for their favorite truck on display by using their cell phones and mobile devices to vote by text message.
“Texans are truck people—one out of every six pickups in the nation is being driven in Texas,” said Mark Williams, PickupTrucks.com editor. “So when the Ford F-150 is declared Truck of the Fair, you know it is coming from a trusted group of passionate pickup truck owners.”
There were dozens of pickups on display eligible for voting, but three trucks remained on top for the entirety of the Fair. The Chevy Silverado 1500, Ford F-150 and Nissan Titan remained neck-and-neck, but in the end the F-150 was clearly the favorite. This is Ford’s third “Truck of the Fair” win and second for the F-150. Last year, the F-350 Lariat was the fan favorite.
