The F-150 had an overall ranking of 32 on the list of 88 vehicles of all types. The 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT and the 2014 Ram 1500 SLT Outdoorsman Crew Cab 4X4 were ranked at 59 and 66 respectively. All three trucks were powered by gasoline. The top vehicle on the list was the 2015 Tesla Model S P85D.
