The F-150 was put through rigorous performance tests including acceleration, braking, overall handling, towing and fuel economy.

The evergreen has been named winner of the 2013 Light-Duty Challenge in the US by the editors of PickupTrucks.com and Popular Mechanics Magazine.

“In our performance-oriented competitive events, the Ford half-ton was dominating,” said Mark Williams, editor of PickupTrucks.com. “It finished in either first or second place in 11 of 13 events. If this were the Olympics, there would be a new Ford F-150 on a cereal box.”

The F-150 beat five competitors, including two of the newest entries from General Motors and the latest Ram.

Judges tested the 2013 Ford F-150 against the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, 2014 GMC Sierra 1500, 2013 Nissan Titan, 2013 Ram 1500 and 2013 Toyota Tundra. Trucks were put through rigorous performance tests including 0-60 mph acceleration (loaded and unloaded), braking, overall handling, towing and fuel economy.

“The results of this test show why F-Series has been the best-selling pickup truck in America for more than 30 years,” said Doug Scott, Ford truck group marketing manager. “We know our light-duty customers are looking for a pickup truck that delivers the leading combination of towing, payload, horsepower, torque and fuel economy, and this shootout proves F-150 continues to lead the pack.”

F-150 is part of the Ford F-Series lineup. Now in its 65th year, F-Series has been the best-selling truck in America for 36 consecutive years, the best-selling vehicle in America for 31 consecutive years, and the brand with the most trucks on the road with more than 250,000 miles on the clock.
