For only the second time in the last ten years a manufacturer other than Ford was awarded the "Truck of Texas." The Ram 1500 took top honors and Ram was also voted "Truck Line of Texas" as well. Ford had won that award 13 straight times. Here's a little more detail about the Ram's features that gave it the nod.

Ford will introduce a major redesign to the F-150 line next year which includes weight reductions of 700 lbs, largely driven by increased use of aluminum. It is anticipated that the update will increase fuel economy by up to 25% and meet efficiency requirements as far out as 2020. A little info about the 2014 model F-150 -- http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000142405270230361280457753...

Finally, Ford didn't come away empty handed in its biggest truck market. It was still the top pick in four categories:

Heavy Duty Pickup - Ford SuperDuty
Off Road Truck - Ford F-150 Raptor
Compact SUV - Ford Escape
Mid-Size Luxury SUV - Ford Explorer Sport
