About The Ford F-150
Since the late 1940s, Ford has been producing the “F” line of trucks that are marketed all around the world as a true workhorse.
This vehicle isn’t built for comfort or luxury but as a reliable assistant for those who work in rough terrains and want to get there whatever the weather.
The truck has gone through many different iterations and redesigns over the years, as well as many sport (such as the Lightning and Raptor) and utility versions also being released.
You can see the extent to which the truck has changed by reading through the various Ford F-150 owner’s manuals listed on this page.
It is a common addition to many police forces across the North of America, it is seen as a strong and reliable vehicle with parts readily available.
Many examples of the Ford F-150 still exist today and clock up well over 100,000 miles as it was very over-engineered and truly a fantastic pickup truck.
The future for the F-150 seems to be in battery power, Ford is pushing for the truck to become a leader in that revolution.
