The 2021 Ford F-150 is the ‘Detroit Free Press’ Truck of the Year

Detroit Free Press Truck of the Year | Brownsville, TX

The Ford F-150 has been the recipient of dozens of prestigious awards over the past several decades, and has already won two highly coveted accolades in 2021 alone. Most recently, the all-new 2021 Ford F-150 was crowned 2021 Truck of the Year by the Detroit Free Press, beating out competitors like the Ram 1500 TRX and the Jeep Gladiator Mojave.


Prior to this major accolade from Freep, the 2021 Ford F-150 topped the same contenders in another highly regarded award: the 2021 North American Truck of the Year.


In both cases, the Ford F-150 was the clear winner in the full-size pickup segment due to its class-leading capability and its numerous, thoughtful, work-friendly features. Its cabin features an available interior work surface, perfect for lunch breaks or a mobile office. Max Recline Seats provide a comfortable surface for napping or last-minute camping.


The 2021 Ford F-150 tops any other truck in its class with a 14,000-pound towing capacity. Its generous lineup of engines includes the impressive PowerBoost™ Full Hybrid V6, which balances power and fuel efficiency with ease. The new F-150 is also the only truck in its segment to offer over-the-air updates.


Freep also mentions that the F-150 includes some simple but thoughtful touches that helped it earn its spot as Truck of the Year, including a built-in measuring stick in the tailgate, and an extra-long running board for easier access to the full truck bed.
