History of Ford

From Strange Burning Methods to Brand New F-Series

Beginning the vehicle-buying process? New and pre-owned Ford vehicles can be just what you're looking for. It doesn't matter if you're looking at new vehicles or pre-owned vehicles, there will be plenty of options available for you and the whole family to enjoy.

The history of Ford brings many consumers to their dealerships and that doesn't seem to be changing anytime soon. The annual profit gain for Ford is around $3.1 billion. With that high of an annual profit, it enables Ford to own nearly 15% of the entire auto market share in the United States.

The Model T Ford was created in 1908, and Ford never looked back. The Model A sold for $850 and had a two-cylinder engine that reached speeds of only 30 miles per hour. Since then, ford has produced so many reliable vehicles and now, their dealerships can offer both new and pre-owned vehicles that people can enjoy for years and years.

Ford's marketing team has taken advantage of all this positive history over the years as well. In 1964, after the release for the Ford Mustang, over 94,000 children received toy pedal-powered Mustangs that Christmas as gifts in hopes of making them future Ford drivers.

The history has always been inspiring, but some aspects of Ford's history, although informational and entertaining, were not as... clean. In England and in the United States, throughout the 1920s and 1930s, Ford factories used human manure and animal manure for power. It was very expensive and they had to burn through nearly 2,000 pounds of the manure each week to power the factories. In 1939, finally, a less expensive and less grotesque fuel method came along.

That's the only stinky part of Ford's history, however. Since 1979, Ford's F-Series has been the best-selling pickup truck in America for 37 consecutive years. The F-Series has been America's best-selling overall vehicle for 32 consecutive years as well, so clearly they are having some success since the early days of the company. An F-Series, whether you're buying a used truck or a new one, will give you a great and popular vehicle.

Whether you're looking for a brand new Ford truck or certified pre-owned vehicles, Ford most likely has exactly what you're hoping to find. Contact a Ford professional today if you want to learn more!
