    Ford Celebrates Historic Milestone for F-Series Trucks Ford celebrated 47 straight years with the best-selling truck in the US as well as 42 years with America's best-selling vehicle https://www.foxbusiness.com/markets/ford-celebrates-historic-milestone-for-f-series-trucks Ford announced Thursday that its F-Series trucks achieved a historic milestone, having held the title of America’s best-selling truck and best-selling vehicle for over four decades. Ford said 2023 will mark the 47th consecutive year that it made the best-selling truck in the U.S., while it will also be the 42nd consecutive year with the best-selling vehicle in America. "It’s a streak that spans four generations (and started when I was only four) and has lasted longer than the entire lifespan of many other popular consumer products, including compact discs and mp3 players, and the entire brick-and-mortar video rental industry," Rob Kaffl, director of U.S. marketing and sales for Ford, wrote on the company website. "But this accolade is not a walk down memory lane; F-Series continues to grow and in 2023, remained the best-selling vehicle in the nation for the 42nd year in a row," he added. Ford F-Series trucks also celebrated achieving what the company called the "Truck Triple Crown" – having made the best-selling full-size electric truck and best-selling full-size hybrid truck in addition to the top-selling pickup truck in 2023. The company said over 700,000 customers chose a Ford F-Series truck in 2023 and that its lead over pickup truck runner-up Chevrolet was nearly 200,000 trucks through November. Kaffl wrote that Ford is continuing to "push the boundaries of what electric vehicles can do" and that the F-150 Lightning exemplifies the company’s "dedication to a more sustainable future without compromising on power and performance. Ford began producing the F-150 Lightning in 2022 as a means of competing in the growing EV pickup truck segment. A report from Automotive News cited a memo sent to suppliers by Ford indicating that the company is planning to produce an average of 1,600 Lightning trucks per week starting in January – below its prior plans to produce an average of 3,200 per week. In response to the report, a Ford spokesperson told FOX Business that the automaker "will continue to match Lightning production to customer demand." Kaffl added that the company is excited to start production of the new gas and hybrid models of the 2024 F-150 models early in 2024. It also has an "unwavering focus on growth" across its gas, hybrid, and electric models as it looks to meet consumer demand. "The enduring legacy of the F-Series is not just a result of our relentless pursuit of improvement but also a reflection of the trust between our company and customers," Kaffl wrote. "We are deeply grateful for the opportunity to serve our customers and are committed to continuing to earn their business every single day."

    Ford F-Series: America's Best-Selling Truck for 47 Years and Counting https://media.ford.com/content/fordmedia/fna/us/en/news/2023/12/28/ford-f-series--america-s-best-selling-truck-for-47-years-and-cou.html By Robert Kaffl, director, U.S. sales Today, I am thrilled to share a milestone that fills all of us at Ford with immense pride. In 2023, more than 700,000 customers chose a new Ford F-Series truck, making it the best-selling truck in the United States for the 47th consecutive year1. It’s a streak that spans four generations (and started when I was only four) and has lasted longer than the entire lifespan of many other popular consumer products, including compact discs and mp3 players, and the entire brick-and-mortar video rental industry. But this accolade is not a walk down memory lane; F-Series continues to grow and in 2023, remained the best-selling vehicle in the nation for the 42nd year in a row1. F-Series is a testament to our commitment to excellence, innovation, and understanding the needs of our customers. Our trucks are Built Ford Tough®, and they embody the strength, reliability, and versatility that our customers have come to rely on for nearly half a century. And F-Series represents the best of Ford and how we’re creating new digital experiences: it features available technologies like Pro Power Onboard2, which helps customers power work sites or even their home in the event of a power outage; features that makes it easier to hitch and tow a trailer, and even BlueCruise hands-free highway driving3. One key to our success in 2023 and beyond is the diversity of our powertrain offerings. We understand that our customers have unique needs, whether they're on the job site, the farm, or embarking on a weekend adventure. That's why we're proud to say that the Ford F-150® PowerBoost Hybrid has claimed the title of the best-selling full-size full-hybrid pickup in America1 (and ranks second overall among all pickups behind the Ford Maverick®). The electrification of F-Series is also making waves with the F-150 Lightning® leading the charge as the best-selling full-size electric pickup truck in the U.S.,1 completing the U.S. truck leadership triple crown. As we continue to push the boundaries of what electric vehicles can do, the F-150 Lightning is a shining example of our dedication to a more sustainable future without compromising on power and performance. Looking forward, we are excited to begin production of the new 2024 gas and hybrid F-150 models early in the year. Our unwavering focus on growth across gas, hybrid, and electric models in 2024 reflects our promise to offer a truck for every customer – one that fits seamlessly into their lifestyle. The enduring legacy of the F-Series is not just a result of our relentless pursuit of improvement but also a reflection of the trust between our company and customers. We are deeply grateful for the opportunity to serve our customers and are committed to continuing to earn their business every single day. 1 Based on CY 1977-2023 total sales through Nov. 2023 and Ford internal projections. 2 See owner’s manual for important operating instructions. 3 Ford BlueCruise requires a Connected Service plan that provides regular map updates, FordPass® App, and modem activation.

    I hope the trend for removing physical climate controls reverses. They did this to the 2023 escape and it really wasn’t necessary. The only benefactor from this action is Ford.

    The "Have you driven a Ford lately?" campaign ran for 17 years and was one of Ford's best. I had the opportunity to meet Kacey Cisyk, who sang the theme, at a Ford meeting in 1993 held at the Windows on the World restaurant at the top of the World Trade Center for the launch of the 1993 Ford Probe. She married the sound engineer that she worked with frequently and unfortunately passed away at age 44 from breast cancer. Her voice was considered as the most heard in America as she also did the "You Deserve a Break Today" for McDonald's and many other campaigns for major advertisers.
