Edmunds’ test team recognized Ford’s generations of internal combustion engine vehicle innovation on F-150, which has helped the company set an industry standard in trucks. The experts celebrated the vehicle’s trucking abilities and usability for consumers.
Edmunds Editor-in-Chief Alistair Weaver said: “For decades, the Ford F-150 has been America’s workhorse, and it’s never been in better shape. 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.”
Weaver said in addition to the feature advancements and true trucking abilities, Edmunds recognized the creation and early success of the electric F-150 Lightning truck and how important it is to the current EV revolution and the auto industry's future.
“It’s hard to overestimate the importance of the Ford F-150 Lightning,” Weaver said. “Electrifying the most popular vehicle in the U.S. [F-Series] was a project fraught with risk, but Ford nailed the brief, brilliantly. The result is a better kind of truck and one that will stand at the vanguard of the electric revolution for years to come.”
