Five vehicles in the 2016 Ford car lineup win a Consumers Digest Best Buy Award!

Ford has been making big strides, and we’re proud that five of our vehicles received a Best Buy for our efforts. Across the entire Ford car lineup, careful considerations have been made to each vehicle to give the consumer more value, while still being as eye-catching on the road as ever.

So how did Consumers Digest pick a winner?

Since 1960, Consumers Digest has been an independent publisher who makes it their mission to educate and inspire consumers within various categories to purchase with confidence.

Four veteran automotive experts, whose experience totals 124 years, evaluated the vehicles. The cars were put through their paces by the Consumers Digest staff that scrutinized the vehicles with real-life hands-on situations.

The testers also looked at independent evaluation/testing, reports from government agencies, interviews of retailers and service technicians, and reviews of consumer surveys.
