Last year, the 2021 Ford F-150 and 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E won Green Car Journal’s 2021 Green Car and Truck of the Year, respectively. This year, the 2021 Ford F-150 PowerBoost is once again up for Green Truck of the Year honors, fresh off its appearance on Ward’s 10 Best Engines list and a 2021 North American Truck of the Year award for the Ford F-150 in general, joining the 2022 Ford Maverick as one of five finalists for the distinction.
In addition to the Maverick and F-150, the other three contenders for the 2022 Green Truck of the Year are the all-new 2022 Toyota Tundra, which is also available with a hybrid powertrain, as well as the all-electric GMC Hummer EV and Rivian R1T.
Green Car Journal will announce the winner of the 2022 Green Truck of the Year on November 12th, 2021, at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas, during the 2021 San Antonio Auto & Truck Show, where the award has been handed out every year since 2014.
“Pickups are a big thing in Texas and across the country,” said Ron Cogan, editor and publisher of Green Car Journal and GreenCarJournal.com. “As one of the top-selling and most desired vehicles on the market, it’s important that pickups continue to blend expected truck capabilities with greater levels of environmental performance, and we’re definitely seeing that with this year’s finalists.”
“San Antonians love their trucks more than just about any other place in the world, so we’re always glad to celebrate their beauty, and as an added bonus, their efficiency,” said SA Auto Dealers President Pam Crail. “Keeping environmental factors top of mind continues to be so important, especially in South Texas, so it is also important for us to keep highlighting the resourcefulness of these top trucks and cars, recognized by Green Car Journal, each year.”
