2016 Ford F-150 Nabs Kelley Blue Book Award for Truck Best Buy
It’s getting to be that time of the year again, and I’m not talking about festive coffee cup time. No, it’s automotive awards season, when media outlets big and small start doling out the best this’s and best that’s of the year, when bold proclamations are made, when winners are crowned.
As is the case every awards season, we expect the F-150 to ring up plenty of hardware. But with so many outlets making so many proclamations, some awards matter more than others. This is one of those awards.
Today, the ever trustworthy Kelley Blue Book (KBB) has bestowed upon the 2016 Ford F-150 the honor of being its Truck Best Buy. And this is the second year in a row the F-150 has won the coveted award.
“Our awards program is designed to help car shoppers find the best values among the vehicle types that interest them most,” says KBB.
To that end, KBB employs a yearlong process that includes thorough vehicle testing and data crunching about pricing, five-year cost to own numbers, consumer reviews, and sales information. In other words, they’re pretty darn thorough.
There’s no doubt that a name like KBB, which is so entrenched in the automotive landscape, carries some serious weight. People just trust the source. And why shouldn’t they? Obviously KBB knows how to pick a winner.
