While every year the range of cars varies according to the consumer needs, for the 2016 year, the Ford F-150 had been rated the best under the pickup truck category and the Toyota Sienna was rated the best under the minivan category.
Ford has never failed to deliver in terms of pickup trucks and the F-150 series had always been a top selling model for the car manufacturer. The model surpassed the previous generation trucks with its innovative military grade aluminum replacing the traditional steel body in 2015. With the 2016 model, Ford went up several notches higher with its body upgrade by making the truck a favorite choice for cargo, payload, and towing uses. The fuel efficiency parameters going up, the overall engine performance was tuned to suit the typical needs of pickup trucks. The interiors were upscaled to make the Ford F-150 look chicer in 2016, and the upgrade from the traditional MyFord Touch infotainment setup to Sync 3 infotainment system made the pick up become one of the best cars due to fact that the Ford F-150 was not just a regular pick but had built-in amenities like that of the regular commuter cars. In brief, this pickup truck was a definite winner as a sturdy workhorse domestic truck.
In the minivan section, the Toyota Sienna is an all-wheel drive at least expensive rate compared to other cars in this category was one of the best cars of 2016 due to its sturdy and well-defined performance, high-quality spacious interiors, and large cargo area. While there was no major upgrade to the car in 2016, the minimal changes for better road handling coupled with sharp brakes and sport-tuned suspension gave this minivan the winning stand. The technologically advanced infotainment system in the Toyota Sienna – the Entune audio system- was the standard feature as was in previous generations. However, the space in the car including the boot space had drastically improved with the 2016 version as the cars interiors were given a complete makeover to removed the extra baggage and provide a more stylistic-lift to barge in some leg space for the second row specifically. While it has an estimated fuel efficiency of about 16-18 mpg for city drive and around 23-25 mpg on the highway overall, the engines contributed greatly towards both the fuel economy as well as good handling. This car was not just the best pick for cars under the minivan segment but was also lauded for its family compatibility and value for money.
