Each year Edmunds puts out its list of vehicles in every category that is expected to retain the best value. These awards are important because they show buyers which vehicles are expected to be worth more in the long run. This is a crucial piece of information for people who are looking to lease a vehicle.
This year Ford was able to claim five different awards in different categories. The Ford F-150 was the winner in the Large Light Duty Truck category. Edmunds praised the F-150 for “offering so many models and useful features.” Its larger, more powerful sibling the F-350 claimed the prize in the Large Heavy Duty Truck, which was given based on the “ideal mix of power, brawn and refinement.”
On a much smaller note, the Ford Mustang claimed the other three awards for Ford. The Mustang V6 earned a best value award in the Coupe $25K-$35K category while the range topping Shelby GT500 won in both the Coupe and Convertible over $45,000 category.
The Mustang and the F-150 have easily been some of the most popular models in the Ford line up for many, many years. The F-150 has consistently been the best selling truck in America and the Mustang is one of the original muscle cars. While they haven’t always been winning awards, these models are the backbone of the Ford brand and we are very pleased to see them win these awards.
