Ford announced today that its 2017 F-150 has received J.D. Power’s 2017 Vehicle Dependability Study award.
In addition to F-150 ranking as the most dependable among large light duty pickups, Ford was recognized as the second most-improved brand in the annual J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability Study released today.
“All customers demand quality vehicles, and truck customers depend on toughness and reliability most of all,” said Bennie Fowler, Ford group vice president for quality. “That’s why Built Ford Tough is much more than a slogan. It’s how we develop the F-150 and how we deliver on our promise to customers to continuously improve America’s favorite pickup truck.”
In January, Ford celebrated a milestone as F-Series became the top-selling truck in the U.S. for the 40th consecutive year and the best-selling vehicle for 35 years. Ford has sold more than 26 million F-Series trucks since January 1977.
Ford reports that its research shows F-150’s dependability – paired with its capability and toughness – is a key differentiator for the truck over the competition.
