Like the commercial says, the F-150 is "like a rock." It doesn't matter that this truck is not new, it is the most popular selling truck in the United States. Those choosing the award winners should vote for what those who own an F-150 already know, and that is that it is the best truck.
The Ford F-150 is the truck of the year. It is the one truck which has stood the test of the times, through he 80s and 90s, on to today. It is more than a truck, it is both a luxury vehicle and an all purpose day to day vehicle.
Based upon its sales figures and improved engineering the Ford F-150 should have been named Truck of the Year for 2015. The improvements made by General Motors did not significantly update any of the Chevy Colorado to the point that it should have been named Truck of the Year for 2015.
It used to deserve the name, but the new aluminum body might cause a lot of people trouble. This is because there is a lot of ice and sleet covered roads at certain times across the United States. One of the things that helps trucks get through the streets safely in these conditions is a heavier weight vehicle. Since aluminum reduces that weight a great deal, the Ford F-150 might start hurting Ford's bottom-line.
