New Best of the Best award rounds out Edmunds Top Rated 2023 with praise for the electric truck’s impact on the industry and relevance to car shoppers

SANTA MONICA, CA — January 25, 2023 — The car shopping experts at Edmunds today announced the Ford F-150 Lightning as the winner of an all-new, and ultimate, award in the Edmunds Top Rated lineup: the Edmunds Top Rated Best of the Best 2023. The award recognizes the standout vehicle among Edmunds Top Rated 2023 winners, with consideration given to the vehicle's impact, innovation and relevance to car shoppers.

This is the third award Ford has earned from Edmunds Top Rated 2023; the F-150 Lightning also took home the Edmunds Top Rated Electric Truck award and the F-150 was named Edmunds Top Rated Truck. The full list of winners of the Edmunds Top Rated Awards 2023 are:

"We're excited to launch the Best of the Best award category with a vehicle of real significance," said Alistair Weaver, Edmunds' editor-in-chief. "The F-150 Lightning is beautifully judged. Futuristic without being wacky, it embraces the advantages of electric technology to create a better truck for truck buyers. This isn't a lifestyle toy; it's a working tool in the best tradition of the F-150. The heart of America is in robust health."

The Edmunds Top Rated Awards are determined by a combination of proprietary data and insights from Edmunds' extensive new vehicle testing and rating process, and the winners represent the finest vehicles on sale in 2023.

This year's collection of awards takes a fresh approach, including categories organized by powertrain (electric and internal combustion) rather than price (mainstream and luxury) to better reflect the shifting market and consumers' growing consideration of green vehicles.
