2021 Ford F-150 Retains a Tight Hold on Best-Selling Status

What’s the Most Popular Truck in the United States? 

Winning isn’t everything, but boy is it nice to be the best. The Ford F-150 holds a tight grip on its best-selling status with 589,034 models sold in 2020 alone, putting it well over 150,000 units above the next best-selling model. But this isn’t anything new. The Ford F-150 is the most popular pickup truck in the United States and has been for quite some time now. How long? The answer will most likely shock you. 

The Ford F-150 has been America’s best-selling truck for 44 years straight. That puts the F-150 truck on a non-stop winning streak since 1977—around the same time that “Rocky” was in theatres and President Jimmy Carter was in the White House. You may also be surprised to learn that the F-150 doesn’t only top the charts for trucks. The Ford F-150 has also been the overall best-selling vehicle in the United States for over 30 years.
