Kelley Blue Book’s KBB.com has named the Ford F-150 pickup its Truck Best Buy for the second consecutive year.

New for the 2016 Ford F-150 is segment-first Pro Trailer Backup Assist, which makes it easier for drivers of all skill levels to back a trailer up instinctively by turning a knob left or right to indicate direction – the truck controls its steering and limits vehicle speed.

Also new for 2016 are Special Edition Appearance Packages available for XLT and Lariat featuring unique wheels, graphics and finishes. A segment-exclusive compressed natural gas/propane gaseous fuel prep package is available for 5.0-liter V8-equipped F-150 – helping reduce operating costs and tailpipe CO2 emissions.

Kelley Blue Book Best Buy Awards are designed to provide a significant service to new-car buyers by identifying the cream of the crop of all available 2016 model year vehicles.

The awards are the culmination of a yearlong regimen of expert vehicle evaluation and testing of nearly every new vehicle available in America, along with analysis of a broad swath of vehicle-related data, including vehicle pricing/transaction prices; five-year, cost-to-own data, which includes depreciation, insurance, maintenance, financing, fuel, fees and taxes for new cars; consumer reviews and ratings; and vehicle sales/retail sales information.
