Carol Stream, Ill. – Feb. 7, 2014 – Whether its tools or equipment, the construction industry wants to be connected. And what is one of the most important pieces of connected equipment found on the jobsite today? Some may say it is the pickup truck.

The winner of Constructech’s 2014 Connected Truck of the Year award is the F-150 from Ford Motor Co., featuring SYNC.

“Contractors and builders are using today’s connected trucks to power their commute to and from the jobsite,” says Peggy Smedley, editorial director, Constructech. “Ford and the F150 with SYNC understand the needs of the construction industry and strike the right balance of technology and craftsmanship in design, and it’s for this reason we are pleased to honor it as the 2014 Connected Truck of the Year.”

Chosen by the editorial team at Constructech magazine, the Connected Truck of the Year recognizes one truck for the construction industry based on connectivity and a host of other key technology-driven features. The Connected Truck of the Year award honors the best truck that exemplifies a combination of convenience, safety, and infotainment into a sleek, stylish, and readily available model.

“With its rugged power, towing capacity, and quiet cab, the Ford F-150 has traditionally been a vehicle relied upon by the construction industry,” says Laura Black, editor, Constructech. “By integrating features like in-vehicle Wi-Fi hotspots, enhanced navigation capabilities, and safety features, the F-150 is proving it has what it takes to carry that tradition into the future.”
