The current best-selling model in Canada and North America, the Ford F-150, has just reached an important milestone in its history. Indeed, Ford announced that this week it built its 40 millionth F-Series truck for the U.S. market.
The 40th millionth model, in case you’re wondering, is a 2022 F-150 Tremor version. In the image shared by Ford, it sits next to a 1950 F-1 model.
The story of the F-Series began in 1947 with the arrival of a new pickup truck completely redesigned for the 1948 model-year. In the United States, the F1 model was available in the half-ton series; the F2 was a three-quarter ton model. As for the F3, that referred to pickup trucks with a three-quarter ton capacity, but more robust.
In all, vehicles with a more commercial vocation were produced up to the F8 nomenclature.
