Ford T Platform
T, or also known as T3, is the designation used for a Ford Motor vehicle architecture designed to underpin full-size mainstream and luxury SUVs. When used for full-size pickup truck applications, like the F-150 and the Ford Super Duty, the architecture uses the P designation. Its predecessor is the T1 platform. The Ford T platform’s main duty is to underpin mass-selling full-size SUVs of all variants, both in standard and long wheelbase layouts.
