The Ford truck has been one of America’s favorites, and best-selling pickup trucks for the last 40 consecutive years. But, did you know, it’s been around for 100 years?
July 27, 2017 marked 100 years of production of Ford Trucks, dating back to the first Ford Model TT in 1917. The Ford Model TT was created due to the demand for a vehicle that could haul heavy loads, and provide greater utility for work and deliveries, according to a Press Release from Ford Motor Company. The Ford Model TT was priced at $600, back then, and 209 were sold in that year.
Fast forward to today, the Ford F-150 is America’s top-selling pickup trucks, is the official truck of the National Football League, and is a well-renowned favorite among businesses and retail customers, alike.
