Why is the Ford F-150 the best-selling truck?
Ford F-Series trucks sell well for several reasons. The most obvious reason is that the company sells thousands of them to fleet managers. The F-150 and Super Duty F-Series trucks are popular with municipal and corporate fleets and small businesses such as plumbing or electric contractors. These trucks are sold through Ford Pro, trucks such as the F-150 Police Responder are popular, and the F-150 fleet starts at $34,445, which is the same price as a retail truck.
Away from fleet sales, the Ford F-150 is still very popular because it comes in so many varieties. You can order a two-door, four-door, short bed, long bed, hybrid, gas-powered V8, and of course the all-electric F-150 Lightning. It also comes in several premium special editions, like the Raptor or Tremor, or even the ultra-luxe Platinum Edition. Larger F-Series trucks, from the F-250 to the F-750, can tow as many CDLs as you need to drive with a few trailers.
Ford has made great strides in keeping trucks modern and relevant by making them have aluminum bodies and fuel-efficient turbocharged engines. Although Ram trucks have better, independent suspension, and a Silverado or Sierra might handle better, the F-150 sets the standard.
What’s new in the 2023 Ford F-150?
Ford completely redesigned the truck for the 2021 model year. This update added new larger screens, several new engine options, a new 10-speed automatic, and more. So, Ford hasn’t really added much, except for a few special edition trucks. The Rattler package adds some off-road goodies and a dual exhaust to the FX4 package. You can no longer order the Lariat trim in Super Cab configuration, only with four doors. The base truck also gets a few small updates.
What is the second best selling truck?
The Chevy Silverado picks up like the cars in America. That’s an impressive feat, but when you add the GMC’s Silverado sibling Sierra, GM sells more full-size trucks than Ford. This is a benefit of having two distinct brands. Like the Ford F-Series, GM’s trucks also come in a wide variety of versions, configurations, and special engines.
