Ford Celebrates 100 Years of Trucks [Video]

On July 7th, 2017 Ford celebrated one hundred years of pickup trucks. From it's humble origins as a farm tool, the Ford truck has grown up to be the best selling vehicle in America -for 32 years. Henry Ford created the Model TT to address the growing need for a purpose built vehicle to haul and tow farm equipment and goods. Prior to the Model TT, people were forced to either modify cars or resort to horse and buggy in order to tend to their land. 

The Ford truck is greatly responsible for helping to build America into what it is today. From four doors to four wheel drive, to Super Duty pickups, Ford continues to be the choice of contractors and a growing number of overland explorers who need the extra payload. 

Thank you Ford for your role in making pickup trucks what they are today. Without you leading the way, we couldn't explore the backroads of our country, or haul a load of lumber to a job site.
