The F-Series of Ford Motors is a series of full-size pick-up trucks that has been available in the market for more than five decades now. Of the many variants under the series, the Ford F-150 is the most popular. The F-150 is considered as the best-selling vehicle in the United States for 23 years now and the best-selling truck for 31 years but this does not include the combined sales of the GM pick-up trucks. It is estimated that the F-Series makes up almost half of the profits of Ford in recent years. But recent developments suggest that Ford’s F-Series may yield its tag as the best-selling vehicle in the country, at least for the month of May. When May sales figures started trickling in, it showed that the Ford F-Series lag its competition. The F-Series was outsold by four Japanese cars and what analysts see as reflection of current shifting consumer preferences. In the month of May, the Ford F-Series sales plummeted by 30.6 percent to 42,973 units as prices of oil continues to rise and car consumers turn to other options like the more fuel-efficient cars. The F-Series was produced in 11 generations now.
The series also features the 2008 Ford F-150 Foose Edition that debuted in the fall of 2007. This was made available in the market in 2008. The Foose Edition of the pick-up uses the Roush-developed powertrain. The pick-up can produce 450 horsepower and a 500 lb. ft of torque.
