The editors of Kelley Blue Book (www.kbb.com), a resource for vehicle information, have reviewed all of the 2004 model year vehicles that underwent a significant redesign and on Dec. 1 named the 2004 Ford F-150 Best Redesigned Vehicle for 2004.Each year moving forward the editors at Kelley Blue Book will review and name a significantly remodeled vehicle a "Best Redesign."According to Kelley Blue Book executive editor, Charlie Vogelheim, "The best vehicle redesign is a vehicle that maintains its existing brand image, function and purpose, while taking the vehicle to the next level in technology, appearance, comfort and convenience."Comments on the redesigned 2004 Ford F-150 from the Kelley Blue Book editorial team: "Ford took America's best selling vehicle and made it even better.""The arrival of the new F-150 may be the most important new vehicle launch in the history of Ford Motor Company; and it looks as though the F-150 team has hit a home run.""A truck with a brushed aluminum dash, leather seats and a center-console-mounted shifter has no place being called a pickup; this is luxury.""With new competition from Dodge, Nissan, Toyota and Chevrolet, the F-150's dominance of the full-sized truck market is under full assault. After spending time behind the wheel of the new F-150, we're sure that this newest version has everything it needs to remain King of the Hill."About Kelley Blue Book (kbb.com)
