What Are the KBB Best Buy Awards?
Every year, Kelley Blue Book® (KBB®) looks at various automobiles on the market, to see which ones are the right fit for various drivers.
Different factors are taken into consideration when choosing winners, including:
- Driving dynamics
KBB® staff members review and test drive hundreds of new vehicles and use these assessments in their reviews, buyer’s guides, and comparison tests. Every summer, they take the previous year’s winners and compare them to the brand-new segment rivals. Then, they’ll take those side-by-side tests to pick the current year’s winners.
In the end, all the characteristics mentioned above are embodied in the cars, SUVs, and trucks that take home this prestigious award.
How the 2019 Ford F-150 Received This Award
In the past, KBB® had decided on one Overall Best Buy winner. However, they realize that Best Buy isn’t a one-size-fits-all award. Therefore, they now split the award into different categories to recognize the diversity of choice.
For the pickup truck category, they looked at things like towing, payload, and interior features. In all these categories, the 2019 Ford F-150 came out on top with what it has to offer.
First, it has a best-in-class towing capacity of 13,200 pounds, when properly equipped. So, if you wanted to head out on an all-day fishing trip, you could hitch your recreational boat to the back of the truck with ease.
The F-150 also has a best-in-class payload capacity of 3,270 pounds. Plus, the class-exclusive LED side-mirror spotlights in the truck bed let you see all your equipment clearly, long after the sun has set.
Additionally, the features inside the truck can help make all your drives around town more enjoyable.
One of them is the user-friendly SYNC® 3 infotainment system. This available feature comes with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ smartphone integration. Simply plug your phone into the truck’s USB port, and be able to listen to podcasts, pull up directions, and more—without actually touching your phone while driving.
