Hot in the City: Ford Flex wins Urban Truck of the Year
Last fall, I sat on the meeting between Ford Flex interior designer Anthony Prozzi, Automobile Magazine Editor Jean Jennings, our in-house artist extraordinaire Lee Quinones at the scrumptious Il Bagatto located in the East Village. Prozzi was the super star of that meeting when restaurant regulars found out that he had worked on the Flex. Turns out an inner city law enforcement officer was quite proud of his brand new Flex – and he called it – the hot new ride on the streets. Seemingly, the Ford Flex has something for everybody, and the more road time it sees, it’s cache grows. Most recently, Flex won ‘Urban Truck of the Year’ at the 2009 Urban Wheel Awards during the North American International Auto Show, trumping the BMW X6 and Dodge Ram. A diverse panel of 23 judges from newspapers, magazines, broadcast sources and online media, organized by On Wheels Inc., voted for the Flex. Judges were asked to nominate three vehicles in the categories of car and trucks.The Flex beat out finalists BMW X6 and the Dodge Ram to win the title. Flex apparently has a serious toned muscle.
