Whether you know it or not, this is award season for all the big truck magazines. In order to make publication dates at the beginning of 2012 calendar, truck testing needs to happen right around now. Awards like Motor Trend’s Truck of the Year, Four Wheeler Magazine’s Pickup Truck of the Year, and 4Wheel & Off Road’s 4x4 of the Year, all do their testing right around now.
The trail testers at Four Wheeler Magazine sent these photos over to us and it looks like they’re having a pretty good time with the three entries they have for their PTOY award. We’re told the three vehicles are a new F-150 FX4 EcoBoost with the new transfer case, the Power Wagon with the new 6-speed transmission and RamBox, and a Ram 2500 HD Cummins with the new 6-speed tranny and RamBox as well.
Even though they tell us they’ve posted some blogs on the competition, they won’t announce their winner until the beginning of the year. We’ll try to keep track of all the award winners as they’re announced and pass along the information.
