Reasserting Its Decades-Long Dominance, the Ford F-150 Was Named 2018 Motor Trend Truck of the Year

America's favorite pickup truck has received a fresh, new honor: the team of editors at Motor Trend spent some significant time with the Ford F-150 Pickup Truck, and the result? 2018 Motor Trend Truck of the Year!

With 40 years of cred beneath its belt, whether you buy your F-150 brand-spankin' new or from our pre-owned Ford inventory, you can expect excellence through and through.



The team at Motor Trend was impressed by the 2017 Ford F-150 in all its many forms—even the off-road performer, the 2017 F-150 Raptor Supercrew, which they found to be both satisfyingly fun to drive and rewardingly competitive. Here's what Motor Trend had to say about it:

"What a concept: a desert racer with a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V-6 generating 450 hp and 510 lb-ft of torque that does 0–60 mph in 6 seconds flat and can do a burnout with a trailer attached. It’s a treat on good pavement, carving corners and provoking grins." —Excerpted from Motor Trend article "Ford F-150 Is the 2018 Motor Trend Truck of the Year" by Motor Trend Staff published November 27, 2017

When it came down to scoring, the Ford F-150 won on a unanimous decision, “It was a pretty resounding win,” [said] road test editor Chris Walton . “Nothing really came close.”

The F-150 had to compete against stiff competition for this honorific title, beating out the likes of the Chevy Colorado ZR2 Crew Cab and the GMC Sierra Denali 3500HD. Nothing could keep up with the range of tires, wheel-tire combinations, grilles, and different ride styles for all kinds.
