(CNN) - The Ford F-150 is taking home high honors. It's been named Motor Trend magazine's Truck of the Year.

Motor Trend says the 2012 model has some significant changes that has improved it.

A big selling point for the newest model is the V-6 engine being put back in the full-size trucks. A lot of those V-6 engines were also turbocharged with EcoBoost, which helps give the truck more towing power.

Motor Trend says it's also impressed with the truck's leather interior option and entertainment technology.
