FORD F-150 WINS KELLEY BLUE BOOK TRUCK BEST BUY AWARD FOR SECOND CONSECUTIVE YEAR
November 12, 2015 by Ford DEARBORN, Mich., Nov. 12, 2015
– Kelley Blue Book's KBB.com, The Trusted Resource® for car buyers, has named the Ford F-150 pickup its Truck Best Buy for the second consecutive year.
The 2016 Ford F-150 – the toughest, smartest, most capable F-150 ever – introduces segment-first Pro Trailer Backup Assist™. The technology makes it easier for drivers of all skill levels to back a trailer up instinctively by turning a knob left or right to indicate direction – the truck controls its steering and limits vehicle speed.
Also new for 2016 are Special Edition Appearance Packages available for XLT and Lariat featuring unique wheels, graphics and finishes. A segment-exclusive compressed natural gas/propane gaseous fuel prep package is available for 5.0-liter V8-equipped F-150 – helping reduce operating costs and tailpipe CO2 emissions.
Kelley Blue Book Best Buy Awards are designed to provide a significant service to new-car buyers by identifying the cream of the crop of all available 2016 model year vehicles. The awards are the culmination of a yearlong regimen of expert vehicle evaluation and testing of nearly every new vehicle available in America, along with analysis of a broad swath of vehicle-related data, including vehicle pricing/transaction prices; five-year, cost-to-own data, which includes depreciation, insurance, maintenance, financing, fuel, fees and taxes for new cars; consumer reviews and ratings; and vehicle sales/retail sales information.
