Full-Size Pickup, 1/2 Ton


2012 Ford F-150

In this highly competitive, high-volume pickup segment, the Ford F-150 snared the victory and the 2012 Vincentric Best Value in America award from its arch rival the Chevrolet Silverado for the second year in a row. The key factors in this win were due to best-in-class fuel economy, low insurance costs and the lowest depreciation rate in the segment. It all added up to ownership costs for the F-150 that were 3% lower than expected.
