At this point, it’s almost old news to say that the Ford F-150 has earned accolades, been honored, or won in another competition. But here at your San Diego Ford dealership, we still get excited to hear about more awards for this Ford truck – especially when it’s something as prestigious as the latest honor. At last month’s Texas Truck Rodeo, put on by the Texas Auto Writers Association (TAWA), journalists and experts picked the 2018 Ford F-150 as the Truck of Texas.

The Texas Truck Rodeo holds vehicles to a high standard. Over 70 TAWA journalists spent two days evaluating all the competitors, driving them on challenging on- and off-road courses to determine the winners across a variety of categories. But the 2018 Ford F-150 didn’t just beat out the other vehicles in one category.

In order to win Truck of Texas, TAWA journalists must decide that the model is the overall best out of every truck entered into the competition. This marks back-to-back victories for the Ford F-Series, since the 2018 Ford F-150 takes over the crown from the 2017 Ford Super Duty. President of TAWA Nic Phillips highlighted the Ford truck’s EcoBoost engine, 10-speed transmission, and particularly praised the off-road ready 2018 Ford F-150 Raptor trim.

Nobody’s holding competitions to decide on the Truck of California, but we think the 2018 Ford F-150 would be a surefire win here too. If you want a truck with immense power and capabilities, and the awards and accolades that prove the experts agree, it’s hard to go wrong with this impressive Ford pickup. San Diego drivers can come by and test drive the 2018 Ford F-150 right here at Kearny Pearson Ford. We think one drive is all it will take to convince you that this truck is the one for you!
