There are numerous companies that rate trucks for just about anything but one that evaluates some very practical traits is California-based Strategic Vision. (Yes, I know it’s Califoria, but get past it.)
They have just released their 2012 evaluations for things like quality, long-term reliability, warranties, fuel economy and standard equipment, and the winners are: for full-sized trucks, the F-150, for heavy duty, Ford Super Duty, and for Mid- size SUV, the new Dodge Durango.
The powers-that-be say that it indicates a strong return for the U.S. auto industry. We in the truck biz never knew it was any other way.
