When Motor Trend editors sit down to pick their Truck of the Year, they don’t take the decision lightly. A select panel of judges spends a week conducting intense testing on a shortlist of trucks. Hot days in the desert, lots of towing, and some seriously tough driving all go in to making a decision about the best truck each year. So when it was announced that the 2018 Ford F-150 was Motor Trend’s 2018 Truck of the Year, every Ford dealer here at our Shelbyville Ford dealership knew it was a decision with care and thought behind it.

This marks the fifth year the Ford F-150 has won Truck of the Year, and since it takes over the title from the 2017 Ford Super Duty, it also marks back-to-back wins for the Ford F-Series. Not only that, but the win comes thanks to a unanimous decision from the judges, with road test editor Chris Walton confessing that “nothing really came close” to the excellence of the 2018 Ford F-150. Judges evaluated based on everything from efficiency to performance, engineering to design, and much more – and the 2018 Ford F-150 has it all. The toughest, smartest, and most capable Ford F-150 yet, the 2018 model also boasts the best fuel efficiency in its class, class-leading towing capacity, innovative technology unique in its class, and an updated exterior and interior design.

This isn’t the first big honor for the 2018 Ford F-150, and we’re sure it won’t be the last. With accolades for the past several model years, the Ford F-150 just keeps getting better, and we’re excited to bring it to our customers in Shelbyville. Whether it’s a used Ford truck or the newest model available, it’s hard to go wrong with the Ford F-150, available here at O’Brien Ford of Shelbyville.
