How well do Ford trucks retail their value?

For pretty much everyone, buying a vehicle is a significant investment. Finding a car or truck that retains a significant portion of its value for years after it is purchased can help maximize this investment. With all of this in mind, how well do Ford trucks retain their value? Pretty well. Ford was recently named Best Value Truck Brand in America by Vincentric, a great acknowledgement of the kind of investment Ford vehicles can be.

Vincentric determined the winners of their awards by using a statistical analysis that incorporated the total cost of ownership for 2016 vehicles, along with the current market price.

Two Ford Trucks Five-Time Winners

Leading the way was the Ford F-150, winner in the best full-size, half-ton pickup segment for the fifth time. Also winning for the fifth time was the Ford F-350 Super Duty, which outperformed all other full-size, one-ton trucks.

New F-150 and F-350 models are currently on display at Ford dealerships throughout the country. The 2016 F-150 offers the first Pro Trailer Backup Assist in the segment. This great new feature allows drivers to control the trailer while backing up by simply turning a knob. The truck handles the complicated back-up maneuvers easily.

The Ford F-350 Super Duty is America’s best-selling heavy-duty truck. Opting for the F-350 will get you best-in-class 440 diesel horsepower and 860 pound-feet of torque with the 6.7-liter, V8, turbodiesel engine.

Ford Taurus Large Sedan Winner

In addition to the two truck wins, the Ford Taurus was also named the winner of the Best Value Award in the large sedan segment. The 2016 Taurus comes equipped with a standard 3.5-liter V6 engine, with two different optional EcoBoost engines available. Whether you desire boosted horsepower or fuel economy, the Taurus is there to handle the job.
