America’s (First) Favorite Truck

As you may know, Ford Motor Company was the one that started it all in the U.S. Henry Ford was, of course, the great pioneer of automation in America, and his company would go on to lead the industry. Of course, as vehicles developed in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Ford began to see applications not only for increasing the efficiency of transportation but also increasing the efficiency of work.

The very first Ford truck appeared in 1917, with the Model TT…well, kind of. The Model TT was based on the original model T but was a little sturdier and could carry a whole ton of payload. However, Mr. Ford wasn’t satisfied with this, so he developed the Model AA, which introduced the first pickup bed. The company now offered a vehicle with a focus on carrying loads rather than simply carrying passengers. Over time, this led to the development of the infamous F-Series trucks in 1948.

Yes, the F-Series have been around for almost 75 years now! The original F-Series trucks were the F-1, which began at a half-ton, up through the F-8, which was much more capable. These trucks were eventually categorized into the F-100, F-250, and F-350 lines. Of course, the F-250 and F-350 lines remain today, but what about the F-100? Where did the F-150 come into play?

The brand used these middle years to increase the comfort and livability of these trucks, but in 1975, Ford realized that the F-100 could do better. In fact, it could do so much better that it deserved a different name. So, the F-100 was retired, and the F-150 was introduced. This means that the F-150 is quickly approaching its 50th birthday, and it won’t be going anywhere anytime soon. They’ve already sold 26 million trucks, so why quit now?

Of course, the F-150 has changed quite a bit since its introduction in 1975. After almost five decades of innovative trims and exciting special editions, in addition to engineering and technological development, the F-150 is better than ever.

America’s (Current) Favorite Truck

The F-150 is a truck of the past, the present, and the future. The old vintage models have their charm and are still serving loyal drivers to this day, but Ford is always focused on what’s ahead, and if you want the truck of a lifetime, then you can shop for a new F-150 today. The F-150 outperforms its competitors in terms of performance specs. This can be credited to the combination of its leading engineering along with its strong architecture. Of course, high performance specs are exciting in that they provide the opportunity for thrilling drives, but what is more important to many drivers is the way that high performance specs increase work capability.

The F-150 is a perfect vehicle for those seeking a durable work truck. Of course, there’s the heftier F-250 and F-350 for really heavy-duty industrial jobs, but the F-150 is capable of industrial jobs as well as heartier DIY projects and independent contract work. Plus, because it doesn’t go quite as big with its dimensions as the F-250 and F-350, it still has plenty of practical applications for domestic life.

Having a pickup truck expands your family's ability for recreation and adventure, whether it’s on a camping trip or even just stargazing in the back bed. Kids always have a lot of fun with pickup trucks, and the F-150 provides different combinations of bed and cab sizes so that you can decide which one you want more of. If you’re mostly focused on cargo hauling, you can get a larger bed with a smaller, two-door cab. If you’re going to be driving your family around, then you can get a slightly smaller bed to make way for a bigger cab. Whatever your priorities are, the F-150 can meet them.

Now, we mentioned thrilling driving experiences. Of course, pickup trucks are great work vehicles, but you better believe that they can provide thrills and fun. The F-150 offers premiere off-roading features and even offers special editions which are completely dedicated to transforming the vehicle into an off-roading monster, like the Raptor edition. If off-roading is something you’re interested in, you’ll certainly want to ask about the off-roading trims and editions because they are a game-changer for those seeking thrills in their trucking experience.

The F-150 is great, both new and used, but the benefit of buying new is that you’ll be at the forefront of the latest innovations. The truck is constantly innovating, and because of that, even its older models still provide the highest and best features. However, new is exciting, and the F-150 is one of the most innovative vehicles on the market. All times are a good time to buy an F-150 because there’s never a year when it’s not a leader.

New Innovations From Ford

The F-150 has seen some major innovations in recent years, including a fuel-saving full-hybrid powertrain, the all-electric F-150 Lightning, and the incredibly capable F-150 Raptor R, which has taken off-roading to a whole new level. Whether you prefer the roar of a supercharged V8 or the silent operation of electric four-wheel drive, these new F-150 variants expand your options in fresh ways. But don’t worry––the truck still has its full lineup of traditional gasoline-powered engines to choose from, including the turbocharged EcoBoost family and the mighty 5.0L V8. Ford continues to innovate, but it doesn’t abandon its past.

There have also been plenty of smaller innovations that have helped secure the F-150’s position as America’s favorite truck. Ford has improved cabin comfort with additions like full-recline seats and a fold-out desk, allowing you to transform your truck to take a nap or handle the paperwork on the road. The F-150 has also gained more tech features, from massive touchscreen displays running infotainment software that gets better over time with over-the-air updates to BlueCruise hands-free driving, which makes long road trips a bit more relaxing. No matter where you look, there is something innovative about the latest F-150.
