Some History about Ford Trucks
Ford F-Series first generation was produced by Ford and the first generation (AKA Ford Bonus Built trucks) began production in 1948.
The better utility truck came along and was called Ford F-450 as the top of the line super duty trucks.
Many people wonder what does Ford F150 mean?
Simply put, it means half ton trucks. Chevy and Dodge called their’s 1500 and then 2500 for 3/4 ton, 3500 for the 1 tons. Ford uses F150, F250, F350.
After World War II Ford’s next generation of consumer trucks, became known as the F-Series Bonus Built trucks. Ranging in size and capability from the half-ton F-1 pickup to the cab-over F-8, the lineup marked the beginning of Ford’s comprehensive truck-lineup strategy.
In 1957 Ford redesigned the F-series’ exterior, making it wider, with styling that continued for decades.
In 1959, Ford began offering Four-wheel drive as a factory option.
In 1961 on two-wheel-drive models, Ford improved suspension and started the slogan, “Drives like a car, works like a truck.”
In 1975, the Ford F-150 appeared for the first time. And surpassed the F-100 in popularity.
In 1995 Ford’s F-series became the world’s biggest selling vehicle, passing the Volkswagen Beetle even though the Beetle kept the title for best selling passenger car.
Today, the Ford F-150 is the best selling vehicle in the U.S.
