1. Technically, the F-150 is a spritely young 40-something
The F-Series line began in 1948, with trucks ranging from the farm-friendly F-1 to the industrial strength F-8. It wasn't until 27 years later that the first F-150 debuted in 1975, ostensibly to fill a gap between the F-100 and F-250. Shortly thereafter, the F-Series took over the truck sales lead that it's yet to relinquish.
2. The F-Series has been the best-selling truck for 39 consecutive years
34 of those years, it's been the best selling vehicle in America. Last year, for example, over 780,000 F-Series left the factory. To put that in perspective, there were just over 120,000 Mustang sales last year.
