Ford Grabs Vincentric’s Best Value Truck Brand Award
Ford has been named the Vincentric Best Value Truck Brand for the second time in four years, and a number of its models have earned awards for offering the most value in their respective segments.
The 2016 Ford F-150 earned the title of Best Value in America for half-ton pickup trucks, marking the fifth time it has earned the honor. The F-150 was Vincentric’s award-winner from 2011-2014, and the new-and-improved 2016 model—adding Pro Trailer Backup Assist and additional appearance packages—has Ford back atop the mountain. The F-150 beat its competitors thanks to a combination of the lowest maintenance needs, operating costs, and total cost of ownership in its class.
The 2016 Ford F-350 Super Duty also earned its fifth award from Vincentric, taking home Best Value in America for full-size one-ton pickups. The Super Duty also earned the Best Value award in 2005-2007 and 2010. The 2016 F-350 won top honors in its class for the highest resale value, lowest fixed costs, and lowest total cost of ownership. The upcoming launch of the significantly improved 2017 F-Series Super Duty will almost certainly give Ford a second consecutive award in this category next year.
Additionally, the Ford Taurus was named Vincentric’s Best Value in America for large sedans. Vincentric cited the lowest fixed costs and total cost of ownership in its class as being primary caveats leading to its victory.
The 2016 Lincoln Navigator also won its second Vincentric Best Value in America award in the large luxury SUV class.
