It mastered every task we subjected it to, acing our instrumented tests at the proving grounds and swaying opinions during our real-world road evaluations."

He continued on stating that the judges "actually preferred the ride and performance....when it was loaded with thousands of pounds of payload or saddled with a heavy trailer. It seemed the more we pushed the F-150, the better it performed." In order to be a contender for either the Car or Truck of the Year awards, vehicles need to be all-new or significantly revised/updated within the past year.
Motor Trend decides the winner based on the following criteria: advancement in design, engineering excellence, efficiency, safety, value and performance of intended function.
