Ford F-Series Retains Best-Selling Truck Title For 2022

As Ford Authority reported just over a week ago, the Ford F-Series was on track to retain its title as the the best-selling truck in America as of the end of November, which meant that the iconic line of pickups just needed to close out December with a solid month to keep that streak alive. Now, that’s precisely what has happened, as the Ford F-Series was the best-selling truck in the U.S. in 2022 for the 46th consecutive year, as well as the best-selling vehicle overall for the 41st straight year.

Ford sold over 640,000 F-Series pickups last year, which was good enough to maintain its decades-long stranglehold on the American automotive market as a whole. Amazingly, the automaker sold at least one F-Series pickup every 49 seconds throughout the course of the year, while all the trucks sold last year would stretch approximately 2,400 miles – or further than the driving distance from Los Angeles to Detroit. These are indeed impressive statistics, particularly as the industry as a whole has faced major production challenges stemming from various supply chain issues.

“The Ford truck team’s ability to anticipate customer needs, continuously innovate, and provide best-in-class levels of capability and performance has helped make F-Series the sales leader time and time again,” said Kumar Galhotra, president, Ford Blue. “We’re honored and humbled that our customers have helped us achieve this milestone for more than four decades.”

The Ford F-Series is poised to have yet another strong year of sales in 2023, thanks to the debut of the all-new 2023 Ford Super Duty, as well as the continued success of the Ford F-150 Lightning – which immediately became the best-selling EV pickup on the market after accumulating 15,000 sales in 2022. Meanwhile, the Ford F-150 is due for a mid-cycle refresh for the 2024 model year, while the updated pickup is expected to debut later this year as well.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.

    InB4 the K-street FUDsters show up with their scripted comments about Ford failing because it only sold 15k Lightnings and because Toyota and Ram “refuse” to do an BEV (Fact: they are rushing BEV’s to market) so that means Ford’s financially failing and the grid is collapsing and everybody should do Big Oil a solid by buying a diesel Super Duty or putting a rebuilt motor in a 1969 Ranch Wagon just own the greenie libs and to get that big communist Farley fired!

    Tundra sales barely register on the radar, comrade.

      If you are trying to demonstrate you don’t recognize the recurring topics, of scripted bad faith commenters here on FA, that the above comment refers to, you did a pretty good job!

      Comrade? Oh, haha, you with the silly boy jokes.

    How many trucks did the competitors sell for the year of 2022?

    I think Rivian Might check the fuzzy math on that Lighting sales claim. they produce 24k and change trucks last year and delivers a bit over 20k units. they are also currently building more pre month.

    Not that any of this matters yet. The prices still keep getting bumped up and the current build qty of both is already just a proverbial drop in the bucket of overall light truck sales in the US.
