Three Ford Vehicles Win ‘Top Quality Impact’ Awards

Three Ford vehicles have just been given “Top Quality Impact” awards by San Diego-based consultancy Strategic Vision, with an additional corporate-level award going to Ford Motor Company itself.

The Strategic Vision “Top Quality Impact” awards are based on the survey responses of 2016 model year vehicle owners, 90 or more days into ownership. More than 39,000 buyers were surveyed in the course of deciding 2016’s awards.

The 2016 Ford C-MAX Energi won the Strategic Vision award in the category of small cars with alternative powertrains. The C-MAX is Ford’s first-ever passenger vehicle available solely as a hybrid; the Energi is the plugin version. It earned high marks in the survey for interior craftsmanship, comfort, and thoughtful engineering.

In the “standard convertible segment,” the 2016 Ford Mustang came out on top, owing to its image, power, and interior design. Finally, rather predictably, the Ford F-150 won in the full-size pickup segment, thanks to its power, safety, and quality craftsmanship.
