The Ford F-150 pickup truck has won plenty of awards in its lifetime, and has just added another one.
The popular pickup has just earned the title of the favorite vehicle of America’s military, according to an analysis of former and active-duty military personnel from the United Services Automobile Association’s (USAA) car buying service.
The analysis came from Jimmy Spears, an auto analyst for the USAA financial services group. It states that the Ford pickup truck was the number one purchase choice across all branches of the United States military for 2017.
“We are proud and humbled that those who protect and defend our country choose Ford F-Series,” said Todd Eckert, Ford truck group marketing manager.
This tribute testifies to the brand’s 41 years of commitment to quality, durability, and resilience.
The F-Series is considered America’s best-selling truck, and has earned the title as America’s best-selling vehicle for 36 years. For the new 2018 F-150 lineup, the awards have already started coming in after it earned the 2018 Truck of Texas and 2018 Motor Trend Truck of the Year accolades. It was also recognized as the 2018 Kelley Blue Book Best Buy Award for the fourth year in a row.
The Ford F-150 isn’t just a popular choice for those in the military, however; it’s also a practical choice for civilian drivers who value brawn and reliability to help conquer their daily tasks. Browse the impressive Ford F-150 lineup for yourself when you visit us at Hometown Motors.
