The Ford F-150 has long been a best-selling model for The Blue Oval and has earned numerous accolades over the years. This includes a Kelley Blue Book Best Buy Award in the full-size truck category, as well as being named Edmunds’ top-rated truck for 2022. Now, the Ford F-150 has repeated that latter feat, once again finishing as the top-rated such vehicle for 2023 – the third consecutive year it has earned that honor.
Edmunds Top Rated Award winners are selected by the organization’s editorial team based on opinions gathered during its vehicle testing and ranking process. Edmunds’ editors selected the overall winners from a group of finalists that consisted of each of the highest-ranked eligible new vehicles as of November 1st, 2022, in their respective classes. Eligible vehicles must have undergone the full Edmunds testing process by November 1st, 2022, and be available for sale as new on January 1st, 2023.
The Ford F-150 stood out among the competition for several reasons. Firstly, the F-150 offers a dizzying array of configurations and powertrains, which allows buyers to choose the perfect truck that fits their specific needs. Whether you need a basic work truck or a luxury model with all the bells and whistles, the F-150 has something to offer. Additionally, the F-150 is known for its capability and comfort. This truck has been built to handle tough jobs and can tow and haul heavy loads with ease. At the same time, it offers a comfortable and refined driving experience, making it an ideal choice for daily commutes.
Another aspect that sets the F-150 apart from the competition is its innovative features. The Pro Power Onboard feature, for example, allows you to use the truck’s power to run tools and equipment on the job site. The Interior Work Surface is another useful feature that allows you to use the truck’s tailgate as a workspace. Additionally, the F-150 is available with a wide range of advanced safety features, including automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, and adaptive cruise control.
All of these features and capabilities helped the Ford F-150 stand out among the competition, and ultimately, led to its selection as the top-rated truck for 2023 by Edmunds. The publication noted that the Ford F-150 “simply does it better than any truck on the market,” which helped it beat out the other two finalists in this particular category – the Hyundai Santa Cruz and Honda Ridgeline.
“For decades, the Ford F-150 has been America’s workhorse, and it’s never been in better shape,” said Edmunds Editor-in-Chief Alistair Weaver. “It’s more innovative, more appealing to drive, and more versatile than ever before. Nobody understands the needs of the modern truck buyer better than Ford and nobody builds a better truck.” The Ford F-150’s ability to consistently deliver on all fronts, year after year, is a testament to the brand’s commitment to innovation and excellence, and the reason why it continues to be a top choice for truck buyers.
