AutoPacific: Ford delivers tops in what customers want
Ford Motor Company has scored more wins in AutoPacific’s 2011 Ideal Vehicle Awards than any other company. AutoPacific bases the IVAs on 72,000 owner ratings of 2011 model year vehicles across 15 key attributes including power, acceleration and interior roominess. Those vehicles that owners say they would change least are deemed the most ideal. For the fourth year in a row, Ford F-150 won in the Large Light-Duty Pickup category.
