Shults Ford Harmarville is proud to announce that the Ford F-150 has earned the title of 2018 Motor Trend Truck of the Year.
The victory has been years in the making. A few years back, Ford made the humongous announcement that it would be switching to an aluminum body for the 2015 Ford F-150. The move was a bold one that wasn’t always popular, though Ford did manage to increase fuel economy, offer more rust resistance, and increase towing capacity.
Even so, Ford had to fight Chevy’s erroneous claims that the aluminum made the F-150 less durable than the Silverado while Ford also had to do battle with Ram’s ultra-efficient diesel models. But the aluminum body transition was just phase one in a number of steps meant to better the F-150.
Over the last few years, Ford has continued to push boundaries, improving engines and adding new ones—as well as a new transmission. Ford also worked on improving the interior and making the infotainment system more intuitive. Those years of hard work have ultimately paid off, as the F-150 has finally taken the coveted title home.
