Why Canadians Have Made the Ford F-Series the Best Selling Truck in the Country for 50+ years
Ford has done it again; the juggernaut motor company has been ranked as Canada’s best-selling automobile manufacturer for the 11th consecutive year. An astonishing feat to say the least. However, the company’s accolades don’t stop there, because Ford’s number one pickup truck (the F-series) has been rated as the top-selling truck in all of Canada for 55 uninterrupted years!
Furthermore, this automobile manufacturing behemoth has continually led the way in innovation, durability, and sound resilience in the automotive industry. And the company’s track record certainly validates this reputation. For 55 years in a row, Canadians have chosen the F-series pickup as their truck of choice. And as a result, Ford remains one of the premier brands representing commercial vehicles in the country.

First, there is the Mustang Mach-E, which Car and Driver magazine rated as the “Electric Vehicle of the Year”. Moreover, it also ranked No. 2 in sales in regards to all-electric SUVs in the country.
Second, the illustrious F-150 Lightning, an electric model of the most sought after and in-demand vehicle in America for over 40 years! This monster on wheels has produced over 120,000 advanced bookings since being unveiled back in May. And nearly 75% of them are brand new Ford customers.
Third, the budding Maverick is also showing promise for the remainder of 2021. A small pickup with a 5-passenger capacity, the Maverick has an earmarked EPA-approximation ranking of 40 miles a gallon within the city. Furthermore, it has a starting cost of $20,000.
And finally; the Ford Pro. Adding streamlined, easy, and effortless electric vehicle charging, the Ford Pro is showing potential and is certain to help finish 2021 strong!
