The Ford F-150 has won Edmunds’ 2017 “Most Wanted” award in the full-size truck category, reflecting the fact that the light-duty pickup’s popularity is second to none in the segment.
The winners of Edmund’s inaugural “Most Wanted” awards were decided by sales, the average number of days spent waiting on dealer lots, consumer interest, and some measure of editorial expertise. “In the highly competitive full-size truck category, the Ford F-150 stood out, besting the competition with leading sales and shopper consideration,” says Edmunds Executive Director of Industry Analysis Jessica Caldwell. “An Edmunds Most Wanted award gives shoppers confidence and assurance that the F-150 is a smart choice.”
Both General Motors and Fiat Chrysler also took home Edmunds Most Wanted honors – GM for the Chevrolet Colorado and Cadillac Escalade in the mid-size truck and luxury full-size SUV categories, and FCA for the Dodge Challenger in the sportscar category. The Ford F-150 this year celebrates 40 years as the best-selling truck in the US, and 35 years as the best-selling vehicle in the country.
