New Ford F-150 Named Truck of the Year
The 2018 Ford F-150 was announced as the 2018 Motor Trend Truck of the Year, marking the fifth time the F-Series has won the award, and a back-to-back win with the Ford Super Duty. Ford has been America’s truck leader for 40 years, and this year’s win shows Ford’s dedication to the truck market.
“The Ford Truck team stretched further than ever to deliver our toughest, most capable and smartest trucks,” said Raj Nair, Ford executive vice president and president, North America.
The staff at Motor Trend evaluated the full lineup of F-150 trucks, including the F-150 XL with the new 3.3-liter V6 engine, F-150 Lariat with the all-new 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6, F-150 Platinum with the 5.0-liter V8 and F-150 Raptor with the upgraded 3.5-liter EcoBoost and new 10-speed automatic transmission.
Several enhancements were made to the F-150 for the 2018 model year, including powertrain updates, new driver-assist features and additional connectivity options. Ford upgraded both the interior and exterior of the F-150 with new features like restyled grilles, headlights, tail lamps, wheels, new seat materials and a newly available B&O Play audio system.
