Vincentric Names Ford the 2013 Best Value Truck Brand
The F-150 was also recognized as the Best Value Full-Size Half-Ton Pickup Truck in both the consumer and fleet categories
Despite stiff competition from rivals such as GM, Ram, and Toyota, the analysts at Vincentric noted that the overall outstanding performance and excellent fuel economy of the F-Series line-up is what gave the edge to Ford.
Consistently ranking among the most popular pickup trucks in the U.S., the Ford F-150 took individual honors in the half-ton pickup consumer and fleet categories. This marks the third straight year that the F-150 has taken the Best Value award in the consumer segment, and given the dependable performance of this capable workhorse it wouldn’t be surprising to see it hold on to the top spot next year.
Delivering value across their truck line-up, Ford continues to produce vehicles that are cost effective and capable enough to meet the needs of a wide range of drivers. The Ford EcoBoost engines provide the fuel economy drivers ask for without compromising on the robust performance expected from a pickup truck.
With a wide array of models to choose from, drivers will find an F-Series regular cab, crew cab, short bed, extended bed, 2-wheel drive, or 4-wheel drive pickup that best suits their requirements.
