The finalists have been announced for Green Car Journal's 2022 Green Truck of the Year and Family Green Car of the Year awards, which will be presented on Nov. 12 at this year's San Antonio Auto & Truck Show at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center.
For 2022 Green Truck of the Year, the finalists are the Ford F-150, Ford Maverick, GMC Hummer EV, Rivian R1T, and Toyota Tundra.
"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. Top contenders for Family Green Car of the Year also highlight how today's most family-friendly vehicles are offering high functionality along with notably improved environment impact."
Green Truck of the Year finalists Ford F-150, Ford Maverick, and Toyota Tundra feature hybrid options in their model lineup. The GMC Hummer EV and Rivian R1T are all-electric pickups.
Green Car Journal's Green Car Awards have been presented at the show annually since 2014.
"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 Pam Crail, SA Auto Dealers president. "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."
