In April, sales of the Ford F-Series reached their highest levels since 2000, building on 12 consecutive months of year-over-year gains for the iconic truck series. And this is only one of the many accomplishments the Ford Motor Company is celebrating right now.
The Vincentric Best Fleet Value in America awards are awarded to those vehicles that will provide the lowest total cost of ownership for vocational or fleet customers. Think about the time and energy you put into making sure your vehicle is a good investment, then multiply that across an entire vehicle fleet. To arrive at their decisions, Vincentric analyzes 28 different ownership and mileage scenarios to create a comprehensive picture of lifetime ownership costs. This year, in addition to awards for the Ford Taurus SE and Ford Transit 150, the Ford F-150 XL took home the award for the full-size half-ton pickup category for the sixth time, and the Ford F-350 Super Duty XL took home the award for the full-size one-ton pickup category for the third time.
Never one to rest on their laurels, the Ford Motor Company had more astounding Ford F-Series news for April, with the announcement that the first-ever 2018 F-150 3.0-liter Power Stroke® diesel engine has the highest EPA-estimated ratings available in a full-size pickup truck with a best-in-class EPA-estimated fuel economy rating of 30 mpg highway. The engine also achieves best-in-class diesel power of 250 horsepower and 440 lb.-ft. of torque, best-in-class diesel payload, and best-in-class diesel towing of 11,400 pounds.
In other words, the 2018 Ford F-150 is your best bet for summer fun, with more than enough power to tow a camper or RV. If you’re still on the fence, the U.S. News & World Report 2018 Ford F-150 review should put you at ease: “The Ford F-150 has been the best-selling truck in America for four decades, and it’s been the best-selling vehicle of any kind for only a few years less than that. With those chops, it’s hard to argue against buying one.” And if you’ve got your sights set on more power, be sure to check out the incredible array of Ford Super Duty trucks available here at Folsom Lake Ford in Folsom, CA.
