The folks at Ford are celebrating a back-to-back win for the F-150 after Motor Trend deemed the full-size pickup its 2018 Truck of the Year. Unfortunately, it means the 2018 GMC Sierra HD and 2018 Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 go home empty-handed.
Ford’s full-size earned the 2017 accolade as well after the Chevrolet Colorado stole the show for two years in a row itself. Chevy’s mid-size pickup earned the 2015 and 2016 honor. For 2018, however, MT Editor-In-Chief Ed Loh said the F-150 exceeded expectations in all categories including powertrain, performance, technology and overall execution.
Things will change soon, though. General Motors will roll out its next-generation full-size trucks sometime next year. The 2019 Chevrolet Silverado and 2019 GMC Sierra will hopefully reinvigorate consumers and pick up some ground lost to Ford in the past couple of years.
