The New Ford F-150 was recently named Truck of the Year by auto authority, Motor Trend. This recent accolade is the fifth win for the Ford F-150 and follows the Ford Super Duty Truck of the Year award for 2017.
Ford has been America’s truck leader for 40 straight years with F-150 and Super Duty models collecting numerous awards. The annual Motor Trend Vehicle of the year study is a combination of real world testing and expert opinion to identify vehicles that excel with advancement in design, safety, engineering excellence, value, efficiency, and performance. Four Ford F-150 models were tested the 2018 Ford F-150 XL, F-150 Lariat, F-150 Platinum and F-150 Raptor.
Motor Trend judges recognized the F-150 lineup for overall towing capability, advanced technology functionality and powertrain performance as well as on- and off-road driving performance. Other favorable components were best-in-class fuel economy and innovative cab design.
“This year’s competition was fierce, but the vote was unanimous,” said Ed Loh, Motor Trend editor in chief. ”The newly redesigned 2018 F-150 exceeded our expectations in every category – powertrain, performance, technology and overall execution.”
