The Ford F-150 is no stranger to winning prestigious awards. But this latest win might just be the most impressive to date!

Winning major awards is nothing new for the Ford F-150, America’s perennial best-selling truck. But when you take home the gold from an unbiased, independent, and notoriously picky publication like Consumer Reports, it’s certainly worth mentioning. Which is exactly why we’re impressed (but not exactly surprised) to see the Ford F-150 top CR’s 10 Top Picks of 2018 in the full-size truck category.

To land on the coveted list, vehicles must be good at everything. CR grades them based not only on their own rankings and real-world testing, but also through extensive owner surveys. Overall scores come from a combination of road-test performance, owner satisfaction, safety, and reliability. CR conducts over 50 tests and surveys over a half-million owners. It’s about as thorough as an automotive test can get.

And it’s clear that CR is enamored with the Ford F-150. They call it an “impressive, innovative workhorse” that “pulls ahead of the pack thanks to its weight-reduction design and turbocharged six-cylinder engine.” They also refer to the truck’s “standout” fuel economy, “quick acceleration,” and “effortless towing ability.”
