Kelley Blue Book's 2015 Best Buy Award winners

If you're looking to buy a new car, Kelley Blue Book can be a resource.

This year, the pickup truck Ford F-150 took the top prize as the overall winner in the new Kelley Blue Book Best Buy Awards.

"The F-150 is revolutionary. It has an aluminum body, that is all new, incredible - saves it 700 pounds. What that does is it enables a lot of other things. Different power trains. Different engines that get better fuel economy,"'s executive editorial director and executive market analyst Jack Nerad said on "CBS This Morning." "This is a truck not just for this year or next year, but for the future as well. So it really is a major innovation."

Its turbocharged Ecoboost engine and competitive cost was also a factor helping the truck land the top honor.

Over 300 new models available for 2015 were evaluated over the course of a year, with testing and analysis of vehicle-related data. The publication took into account 5-year cost-to-own data factors including depreciation and maintenance to consumer ratings and reviews. Forty-nine finalists were announced in 12 major vehicle categories before the ultimate winners were announced first on "CBS This Morning."
