The cliches declare that everything is bigger in Texas. It comes as no surprise, therefore, that the 2018 F-150 has earned acclaim from critics and drivers alike - delivering supersized performance and class-leading power. The half-ton market will never be the same.


According to the Globe Newswire, Ford’s ever-popular pick-up has just been named Truck of the Year by the Texas Auto Writers Association (TAWA). This organization - which has established performance benchmarks for half-ton and full-ton platforms for more than 30 years - recently placed the F-150 under intense scrutiny, with its panel of journalists testing it for power, speed, and economy. The result was an unprecedented success.

As the Globe Newswire explains, the 2018 F-150 swept all TAWA categories - including torque ratios, off-road handling, conventional and gooseneck trailering, and more. Critics were quick to note that (unlike its competitors, the Toyota Tacoma and the Nissan Titan), this pick-up improved upon its predecessors. All performance specs had been enhanced, particularly handling. This was due to the inclusion of the new 10-speed automatic transmission, which ensured peerless responses on every road.

This led the 2018 F-150 to a clear victory - earning it the coveted Texas Truck of the Year title. We’re sure our Washington customers will share this same enthusiasm.
