Each year, Motor Trend pits the current lineup of available pickup trucks against each other to find a winner. For this year’s contest, the 2018 Ford F-150 was named Truck of the Year. You can test drive this award-winning truck right here at Shults Ford Lincoln of Wexford.
According to Motor Trend, the decision to crown the Ford F-150 was unanimous. Editor Chris Walton said, “It was a pretty resounding win. Nothing really came close.”
Motor Trend tested four different F-150 models, including the F-150 4x2 SuperCab XL, F-150 4x4 SuperCrew Lariat, F-150 4x4 SuperCrew Platinum, and F-150 Raptor SuperCrew. Each model stood out for its own abilities and the vast array of available models is one reason why the F-150 beat the competition.
Another thing that is impressive about the F-150 this year is its engine lineup. While Motor Trend only tested a few variations, it is worth noting that the F-150 will be adding a diesel engine option very soon.
Even the base XL model made an impressive performance during this test. In fact, it has the ability to tow more than the truck itself weighs. It also comes with a lot of features like trailer sway control, hill-startassist, and more, all standard.
