The 40 millionth Ford F-series pickup rolled off the assembly line at Ford’s Dearborn, Michigan plant.
The anniversary copy of the Ford F-Series was by no means the F-150 Lightning electric car or even some richly equipped copy in the maximum configuration, but the most ordinary Ford F-150 Tremor of a silver hue. And the car will go not to the company museum, but to the buyer in Texas.
For Ford Corporation and the entire American car market, the release of the 40 millionth Ford F-Series is an important milestone. After all, the history of this model has been around for 75 years: the first generation Ford F-1 was introduced in 1947, although the company had produced pickups before that. To date, models of the 14th (F-150) and 13th (F-250 / F-350 / F-450) generations are simultaneously in service. These machines are produced at three factories in the United States, although the very first F-1 was produced at 9 factories across the country.
For 40 years in a row (since 1981), the Ford F-Series has held the title of the most popular car in the US market, ahead of all passenger cars and SUVs. And this model has held the title of the best-selling pickup truck in the United States since 1977.
