FORD IS CELEBRATING PRODUCTION OF ITS 40 MILLIONTH F-SERIES FOR THE U.S.

40 Million Vehicles In 75 Years

40 Mil Ford F-150

Ford has been producing F-Series trucks for 75 years, starting back in 1947. In 1958 the Ford F-1, F-2, F-3, and F-4 went on sale, and the first generation of the F-series trucks spanned from 1948 to 1950. For 45 years, the F-Series has been America’s best-selling truck, and for 40 years, they have been the best-selling vehicle. Now, Ford is celebrating the production of a 2022 F-150 Tremor which marks the 40-millionth F-Series for U.S. customers.

Ford’s 40-Millionth F-Series Truck

The celebrated F-150 Tremor in Iconic Silver paint has rolled off the line at the Dearborn Truck Plant in Michigan and will be shipped to a customer in Texas. The F-150 Tremor package features a 5.5-foot box, 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine, and 10-speed automatic transmission with standard four-wheel drive. From there, it’s a matter of preference with the package featuring standard, mid and high equipment groups. There are Tremor-specific tuned springs in all four corners of the vehicle, along with revised front hub knuckles and upper control arms. Tremor-specific monotube shocks are positioned at the front, and twin-tube shocks are located at the rear. The setup gives the F-150 softer damping at low speeds, with additional control for more severe off-roading.

The F-150 Tremor has 1.5 inches more travel in the rear and an additional inch of total travel in the front compared to the standard setup. Raptor-inspired steel bash plates protect the front-end components from objects like rocks, logs, and other unfriendly things. In addition, the Ford F-150 Tremor package features a set of 33-inch General Grabber all-terrain tires mounted on unique matte-finish 18-inch wheels, which provide a 1-inch wider stance to the vehicle.

The 40-millionth F-Series truck had also attended a photoshoot alongside a 1950 Ford F-1 before it was shipped out to the customer. So 40 seems to be a good number for the F-Series, and it’ll be exciting to see what the future has in store for the Ford pickups.
