The Ford F-150 has been the best-selling vehicle in the US for decades, so it’s certainly no surprise that the F-150 is raking in awards left and right. Most recently, the pickup earned the 2018 Motor Trend Truck of the Year award for the fifth time. With power, selection, and intelligence, it’s easy to see why the F-150 stands out among the competition.
The judges at Motor Trend considered multiple features, including design, engineering, safety, value, efficiency and performance. According to Ford, the XL, Lariat, Platinum, and Raptor were each tested and judged against the competition. This most recent Ford F-150 award is just one among many
“Back-to-back wins for F-150 and Super Duty reflect what we’re also seeing and hearing from customers as we celebrate 40 straight years as America’s favorite and best-selling trucks,” said Raj Nair, Ford executive vice president and president, North America. “The Ford Truck team stretched further than ever to deliver our toughest, most capable and smartest trucks.”
The judges noted that the F-150 has an impressive overall towing capacity—great for any pickup driver—and advanced technology functionality. Plus, the Raptor was noted for its great off-road capabilities. To test drive the new F-150, visit Corwin Ford of Springfield today.
