PickupTrucks.com and Popular Mechanics put six trucks through several head-to-head tests. The 2013 Ford F-150 dominated and came out on top as the best light-duty pickup truck.

The 2013 Ford F-150 was put up against the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, 2014 GMC Sierra 1500, 2013 Nissan Titan, 2013 Ram 1500 and 2013 Toyota Tundra. The tests consisted of 0-60 mph acceleration (loaded and unloaded), braking, overall handling, towing and fuel economy.

Mark Williams, editor of PickupTrucks.com, says:

“In our performance-oriented competitive events, the Ford half-ton was dominating. 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.”

Doug Scott, Ford truck group marketing manager, says:

“The results of this test show why F-Series has been the best-selling pickup truck in America for more than 30 years. 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.”

The 2013 Ford F-150 features up to 11,300 pounds of towing capability and best-in-class 3,120 pounds of payload. F-150 is available with four powertrains including a 6.2-liter V8, a 5.0-liter V8, a 3.7-liter V6 and the segment-exclusive 3.5-liter EcoBoost®.

The F-150 also comes in several trims.
