Ford's latest evolution in the F-150 family is quite possibly their best ever since the introduction of the F-150 Series began back in 1948. Ford F-Series trucks score high on dependability and have an unbeatable resale value for their group. The F-150 is the most successful and popular series of full-sized pickup trucks ever built.
