Ford P Platform
P, or also known as P552/P558, is the designation used for a Ford Motor vehicle architecture designed to underpin full-size standard duty and heavy duty pickup trucks. When used for full-size SUV applications, like the Ford Expedition and the Lincoln Navigator, the architecture uses the T designation. Its predecessors are the P3 and P2 platforms. The Ford P platform’s main duty is to underpin mass-selling full-size pickup trucks and all of their variants, ranging between half-ton, three-quarter-ton and one-ton applications.
This platform is currently in production for vehicles sold under the Ford nameplate worldwide. Here are the Ford vehicles currently sold in the U.S. and Canada that ride on the Ford P platform:

The Ford F-150 is scheduled to receive a complete model redesign for the 2021 model year. It is currently unclear if this next-generation truck will continue to ride on the Ford P Platform. Ford has however confirmed plans of electrifying the F-150 through hybridization or even a full electric variant.
All variants of the 2020 Ford F-150 are currently on sale. The updated 2020 Ford Super Duty should hit North American showrooms during the first quarter of 2020, along with the first-ever Tremor off-road-dedicated variant.
