Talk about a trend-setter! For four years in a row, the Ford F-150 has taken the Pickup Truck honors in the Kelley Blue Book "Best Buy" competition... and for four years in a row, nobody else has come close to toppling it from the top spot.2
Citing its "stupendous chassis" and "increased innovation," and calling it "simply dominant," the editors at MotorTrend unanimously agreed: the 2018 Ford F-150 is the Truck of the Year. Road test editor Chris Walton said, “Nothing really came close," and we couldn't agree more.3
The Texas Auto Writers Association knows what it takes for a pickup truck to be Texas tough, and after a two-day test-drive at Longhorn River Ranch just outside of Austin, they've named the 2018 Ford F-150 the Truck of Texas for the second year in a row.4

Safety

The 2018 Ford F-150's13 active Blind Spot Monitoring System warns you when a vehicle enters your blind spot, a little more peace of mind as a standard feature. Want that extra security on the 1500? Blind Spot Monitoring isn't standard on the 2018 Ram 1500, so it will cost you.
If your vehicle begins to drift out of its lane, the Lane Departure Warning System, standard on the 2018 Ford F-1509, will sound an alarm. This extra layer of safety isn't standard on the 2018 Ram 1500, so if you want it, you'll have to pay extra.
