Ford Wins Big with 5 KBB 2022 Best Buy Awards

2022 Ford Maverick | Orlando, FL

The Blue Oval has done it again. Five vehicles in the 2022 Ford lineup won KBB Best Buy Awards, including heavy hitters like the all-new Maverick and F-150.

In fact, the amazing 2022 Ford Maverick — the first pickup in America with a standard hybrid engine — won two top KBB Best Buy Awards. Not only is the Maverick the best bet among compact pickup trucks, but the experts at Kelley Blue Book ruled the Maverick the Best New Model overall.

“There aren’t many vehicles out there that offer this level of capability, fuel economy, and features for such a low price,” writes KBB.com’s Allyson Harwood. “Ford hit it out of the park, developing a small truck that will appeal to everyone, not just truck buyers. That’s why the Ford Maverick is Kelley Blue’s Best New Model for 2022.”

The Maverick was not alone in victory. Joining the compact pickup in the winner’s circle are the Ford F-150, Ford Expedition, and Ford Mustang Mach-E. These vehicles won for full-size pickup truck, full-size SUV, and electric vehicle, respectively.

When you’re talking about the 2022 Ford lineup, there’s no shortage of great options. In addition to the 2022 KBB Best Buy Award winners, you have options like the family-friendly Escape, rugged Bronco and Bronco Sport, and sporty Mustang fastback and convertible.

2022 Ford Maverick, Bronco Named North American Truck, Utility Vehicle of the Year

Ford has done it again … twice. After taking home top honors last year, Ford once again won the North American Truck of the Year and North American Utility Vehicle of the Year awards thanks to the 2022 Ford Maverick and Bronco, respectively.

Fifty independent jurors gave the all-new Maverick and Bronco top honors running away. The 2022 Ford Maverick outscored the two runners up combined in terms of total points while the Bronco held the largest margin of victory over a second-place vehicle.

The jurors did not mince words in expressing their love for the Maverick and Bronco. Car and Driver’s Steven Cole Smith called the Maverick “the best buy in the North American auto realm” thanks to its low price and great fuel economy. Of the 2022 Ford Bronco, The Detroit News’ Henry Payne says the off-road SUV is “a home run” that stands as an immediate challenger to the competition.

Neither the 2022 Ford Maverick or 2022 Ford Bronco are strangers to big-time awards.
