This accolade highlights the model’s continued dominance in the full-size 3/4 ton pickup category, reinforcing its appeal to fleet operators nationwide. 

Analyzing the Winning Factors

The F-250’s triumph in the 2024 awards is no small feat. Positioned ideally for fleet use, the F-250 in its XL, regular cab, two-wheel drive configuration outshined its rivals by winning 19 out of 28 lifestyle cost scenarios. This model not only offers the lowest insurance costs in its class but also surpassed 167 competitor trims. This performance underscores its efficiency and cost-effectiveness, key factors for fleet operations.

The Ford F-250 wasn’t alone in its victory; it was accompanied by siblings that also received top honors. The Ford F-150 Lightning Pro led the full-size half-ton pickup segment, while the Ford Maverick XL was the champion in the small truck category. These wins demonstrate Ford’s comprehensive strength across various truck categories.
