Ford F-150 Named Consumer Report‘s Best Truck of 2018
Winning major awards is nothing new for the Ford F-150, America’s perennial best-selling truck. But when you take home the gold from an unbiased, independent, and notoriously picky publication like Consumer Reports, it’s certainly worth mentioning. Which is exactly why we’re impressed (but not exactly surprised) to see the Ford F-150 top Consumer Reports 10 Top Picks of 2018 in the full-size truck category.
To land on the coveted list, vehicles must be good at everything. Consumer Reports grades them based not only on their own rankings and real-world testing, but also through extensive owner surveys. Overall scores come from a combination of road-test performance, owner satisfaction, safety, and reliability. Consumer Reports conducts over 50 tests and surveys over a half-million owners. It’s about as thorough as an automotive test can get.
And it’s clear that CR is enamored with the Ford F-150. They call it an “impressive, innovative workhorse” that “pulls ahead of the pack thanks to its weight-reduction design and turbocharged six-cylinder engine.” They also refer to the truck’s “standout” fuel economy, “quick acceleration,” and “effortless towing ability.”
Couple that with a host of “clever features,” a “spacious rear seat,” and “ample room for tools and gear,” and you’ve got the makings of an outstanding truck. One that stands head and shoulders above the competition, both in sales figures and in the real world. So in case you were wondering, yes, the Ford F-150 is still the best truck you can buy. And, quite honestly, probably the best all-around vehicle on the market, period!
