Sponsored by Automotive Fleet and Business Fleet magazines, the purpose of the award is to promote excellence in the fleet industry, particularly the tools and vehicles that allow fleet managers to fulfill their missions. Vehicles were voted on by qualified fleet professionals via an online ballot.

The 2014 Fusion/Fusion Hybrid captured the most votes among 43 cars selected for this year's competition.

"The entire Ford Fleet team is very pleased that customers continue to find the Fusion as the commercial car of choice.
