It’s official: The 2018 Ford F-150 is Motor Trend’s 2018 Truck of the Year. The reviewers at Motor Trend were blown away by the F-150’s power, versatility, and performance—all things we’ve known about for a long time. We’re thrilled to see this truck get the recognition it deserves.
Motor Trend reviewed a variety of 2018 F-150 models, from a rear-wheel-drive SuperCab XL to a SuperCrew Lariat with an EcoBoost Engine (“The one that I would get if it were my own money,” said one reviewer) to a fully-loaded SuperCrew Platinum V8 and a Raptor, all of which offered their own unique strengths. Whether you need a truck for hauling, towing, working, or commuting, there’s an F-150 for you.
“For 2018 Truck of the Year testing, Ford gave [Motor Trend] four variants to show the breadth of the changes under the hood. Ford has been busy; the interiors have gotten nicer, the infotainment system more intuitive, the steering better. The F-150 chassis is stupendous, the innovations have increased, and it has earned an NHTSA five-star safety rating. It was unanimous. The Ford F-150 is Motor Trend’s 2018 Truck of the Year. ‘It was a pretty resounding win,’ road test editor Chris Walton said. “Nothing really came close.’”
Ford’s F-Series Trucks have been America’s best-selling for more than 40 years, and the F-150 being crowned Motor Trend’s 2018 Truck of the Year shows why. Ford continues to innovate and perfect what a truck can be, showing that the F-150 doesn’t just set the bar—it is the bar. The 2018 F-150 is stronger, smarter, and better than ever: as Motor Trend says, it’s “simply dominant.”
