Ford F-150: If you know anything about trucks, what I’m about to share with you will not surprise you. Yes, the Ford F-150 still dominates this class and has been the number one selling truck for over 30 years. This workhorse is praised for its performance, style, dependability, interior comfort and ease of use on and off-road. It is available in either V-6 or V-8 engines and is known for its extraordinary towing capacity. Truck buyers remain loyal to this line due to the overall satisfaction and dependability.
