It’s official. Kelley Blue Book has named the all-new Ford F-150 as the ‘Best Buy Award’ winner in its segment. This isn’t the first time that the Ford F-150 has been able to snag a ‘Best Buy Award’ from Kelley Blue Book, either. As it turns out, this actually marks the seventh time that Ford’s bestselling truck has earned this award.

Why the Ford F-150 continues to reign as king among its segment

But what is about the Ford F-150 that has Kelley Blue Book so enamored with it? After all, there are plenty of other pickups in the full-size truck segment. According to Kelley Blue Book, it all comes down to innovation because, as they so aptly put it, “With every new generation of the Ford F-150 comes innovation that advances the entire pickup truck segment.”

Kelley Blue Book reports that the Ford F-150 has consistently proven that the use of technology is a necessity for advancing the segment as a whole. From the F-150 Hybrid that can tow an impressive 12,400-pounds to the pickup’s available Pro Power Onboard mobile generator system, the F-150 makes nary a compromise when it comes to innovation.

That’s not all that it has going for it, though. Kelley Blue Book also called out the 2021 Ford F-150 for being available with one of four gas engines, one being turbodiesel, and another being the PowerBoost hybrid. Kelley Blue Book added that the Ford F-150 Hybrid, in particular, offers a smooth, comfortable ride. What’s not to like about that?

All in all, Kelley Blue Book says that the 2021 Ford F-150 offers an incredible value. In their words, it may be a full-size pickup, but it also functions as a “portable workstation.” It can tow a maximum of 14,000-pounds when properly equipped, and is available with a Work Surface in its cab. And at the end of the day, Kelley Blue Book says the Ford F-150 is also roomy enough to post up and get comfortable in.
