It’s an exciting year for the Ford F-Series because 2017 marks 40 consecutive years as America’s best-selling truck and 35 years as the best-selling vehicle. More than 26 million Ford F-Series trucks have been sold since 1977. To celebrate, Ford is kicking off a yearlong celebration by highlighting F-Series owners and their most prized possessions – their trucks.
“What’s made the F-Series so successful is the Ford truck team’s ability to anticipate the needs of our customers better than anyone else – how those needs change, what’s most important, and what they need to move forward,” said Todd Eckert, Ford truck group marketing manager. “Their insights help us design, engineer and build America’s best-selling trucks.”

Throughout the years, the Ford F-Series has changed and adapted to the needs and wants of drivers. It started out as a truck that was designed to do tough work such as haul livestock and large equipment. However, Ford realized that there were also drivers that wants a truck to do more recreational things such as camping and off-roading.
With this idea in mind, the Ford F-Series continued to evolve to offer drinks a variety of options depending on how they planned to use the vehicle. Luxury edition models were added to the lineup as well as top-of-the-line Platinum and Limited models that host features such as leather seating and premium sound systems.
