Studies Show Ford Truck Owners Are Having A Hard Time Parting Ways

Perhaps the most critical thought running through every new car buyers head is how much use they will get out of the damn thing before it comes time to part ways. Recent studies are shedding some light onto this question and figuring out just how long owners are holding their rides for. You may be surprised when you hear where Ford F-150 owners rank among the light-truck segment.

According to a study done by, Ford F-150 owners on average hold their ride for 7.2 years before moving on. Out of the eight trucks placed in the light-duty pickup truck segment, the F-150 finished at the bottom. While the Toyota Tacoma, Nissan Titan, and Nissan Frontier were on the top of the chart, being held onto for more than 7.7 years.

Although not apart of the initial study, but very interesting numbers to see, is how the heavy-duty pickups ranked among the list. Data shows that all four three-quarter ton HD models were held longer than 7.8 years. This list includes the Ram 2500, the Chevy Silverado 2500, GMC Sierra 2500, and the Ford F-150 Super Duty. Each of them were all held longer than the increasingly popular Toyota Tacoma. The F-250 ranked third among this segment being held on average for 8 years.
