The Ford F 150 is the most popular vehicle in the Ford F Series, a series of full-size pickup trucks that the Ford Motor Company has been selling for nearly six decades.
The Ford F 150 has been the best-selling vehicle in the United States of America for over twenty years and the best-selling truck in that country for thirty years. It is believed that sales of the F Series alone constitute half of all of the Ford Motor Company’s profits in recent years.
In the tenth generation of the Ford F Series, Ford decided to split the F 150 and the F 250 / 350 into two distinct body styles. The new version of the F 250 / F 350 is now known as the Super Duty.
Once it arrived in its tenth generation, sales of the Ford F 150 exceeded nearly a million units a year. During the final years of the tenth generation, however, sales of the Ford F 150 began to lag behind that of similar vehicles by Dodge.
In the year 1997, Motor Trend Magazine named the Ford F150 the Truck of the Year. A limited range of Heritage Edition F 150s was released in 2004.
