Praise for the New Ford F-150

The Fast Lane Truck is an online magazine for truck enthusiasts and a well-respected authority in its field. Among other factors, every year the magazine awards its coveted Gold Hitch awards to trucks for their performance in key categories. This year, the new Ford F-150 and the F-150 Raptor took home a total of five Gold Hitch awards in total, while the F-150 was named “Truck of the Year” as well.

Based on high-altitude towing power, Gold Hitch Awards are only bestowed on midsize, half-ton, and heavy duty trucks, meaning that the competition is narrowed but still fierce. Only after outperforming every other comparable vehicle on a high-altitude towing terrain was the F-150 awarded its trophy. According to Andre Smirnov, the magazine’s editor, “[t]he 2017 Ford F-150 is the best towing half-ton truck this year…The overall versatility, towing performance, and choice of available powertrains and technology features of the entire 2017 F-150 lineup the F-150 above all others.”
