2018-ford-f-150

The 2018 F-150 has earned the top spot among full-sized pickups in Consumer Reports’ annual auto rankings.

The magazine said, “The F-150 pulls ahead of the pack thanks to its weight-reduction design and turbocharged six-cylinder engine. This strategy delivers a standout 19 mpg overall, quick acceleration, and effortless towing ability from the potent 2.7-liter turbo V6 engine.”

Vehicle scoring is based on four categories: road test, reliability, owner satisfaction and safety.

“We’re pleased the Ford F-150 is Consumer Reports’ Top Pick for Full-Size Pickups, which is further validation that it’s smarter, more capable and more innovative than ever as America’s best selling truck for 41 years,” said Ford Trucks and Commercial Vehicle Communications Manager Dawn McKenzie.
