The Detroit Free Press, or Freep, Truck of the Year Award is a highly coveted honor reserved for trucks with the best blend of power, strength, durability, technology, comfort, and safety. The 2021 Ford F-150 has won the award this year, adding another trophy to its already-impressive collection of accolades.
Before the Freep honors, the 2021 Ford F-150 had taken home the 2021 North American Truck of the Year title over the Ram 1500 TRX and the Jeep Gladiator Mojave. Other awards for the truck include the Green Car Journal’s “Green Truck of the Year”, Edmunds’ Top Rated Truck for 2021, and Kelley Blue Book’s Best Buy for full-size pickups.
Many factors came together to influence the Detroit Free Press into their decision to name the F-150 as the best pickup truck of 2021. Best-in-class 14,000 pounds of towing capacity helps on every jobsite and any vacation. The PowerBoost™ Full Hybrid engine provides great efficiency to go along with impressive power.
Max Recline Seats also help the 2021 F-150 stand out from the pack, offering the ability to fold almost flat for extra versatility. Segment-exclusive over-the-air updates, the available Interior Work Surface, and the exciting Active Drive Assist hands-free system are other reasons why the F-150 shines a little brighter.
