The 2014 Fleet Van Award winners were announced in front of a crowd of 400 people at the International Centre in Telford on the 18th of September, and Ford was among the top winners at the elite event. The gathering was made up of leaders in the light commercial vehicle industry, who meet each year to rally around the winners of the awards, which are given in a variety of categories. This year’s winner for Light Commercial Vehicle of the year went to the Ford Transit, and Ford also won several awards in the Manufacturer category, with wins as Small Van of the Year with the Ford Transit Connect, the Medium Panel Van of the Year with the Ford Transit Custom, and the Large Panel Van of the Year for the Ford Transit. The manufacturer also received recognition in the Pick Up Truck of the Year category with the Ford Ranger.
In addition to the accolades listed above, Ford was also commended in the category of Green Manufacturer of the Year in recognition of the strides they have made in their engines and in their emissions levels.
The event tops a banner week for Ford, as the company won a total of eight awards in combination for its cars and its commercial vehicles over a two-day period. Ford of Britain was named winner of four trophies in the What Car? Used Car awards.
