2015 F-150 Wins Kelley Blue Book Truck Best Buy and Overall Best Buy
Much like the way actors and actresses gear up for the Academy Awards by snagging trophies at the Golden Globes and the BAFTAs, the 2015 Ford F-150 is making the rounds and picking up awards as it gears up to be named the 2015 North American Truck of the Year at the North American International Auto Show.
Given its performance on the awards circuit so far, the new F-150’s status as Truck of the Year may well be a foregone conclusion. After winning the Grand Award in PopSci’s “Best of What’s New” awards, a whole host of awards from TAWA, and the New England Motor Press Association’s Yankee Cup, the 2015 Ford F-150 has been named the Kelley Blue Book Truck Best Buy and Overall Best Buy.
KBB’s latest award is pretty self explanatory, and the industry’s foremost experts concluded that the absolute best vehicle on the market is Ford’s totally redesigned pickup truck.
Said KBB executive editor Jack R. Nerad:
“The 2015 Ford F-150 is a revolutionary vehicle in a segment in which even evolutionary change is viewed with skepticism. The bold decision to lighten the vehicle’s structure radically was not just of value in itself, but also was the key enabler to an innovative line of powertrains that will result in significantly better capability than the prior F-150. What so impressed us at Kelley Blue Book was the fact that the new technologies incorporated into the 2015 F-150 all offer obvious and substantial consumer benefits. We believe that is the key reason the new F-150 will cement its place as the No. 1 vehicle in its segment.”
Kelley Blue Book analyzed everything from pricing, five-year cost-to-own data, reviews and ratings, and safety information before making a decision that ultimately pointed to Ford.
The new F-150 is expected to arrive sometime next month.
