After ending its manufacturing operations in Brazil a few years ago, Ford is in the midst of a major transformation in the South American country, launching its Ford Pro commercial business there, along with a bevy of new products. That list includes the hot-selling Ford Transit and its ever-growing family of variants, the Ford Maverick compact pickup, and the Ford F-150, which saw its initial batch of 500 units sell out in “record time,” according to the automaker. Now, a few months later, the very first Ford F-150 pickups have reached Brazilian soil.
This initial group of Ford F-150 pickups will be delivered to customers in the next few weeks, keeping it within FoMoCo’s predicted timing of 90-120 days between the pre-sale and actual deliveries. These units will be available once the documentation process is complete, and from here forward, customers interested in purchasing one of these pickups can do so at a dealer.
Brazilian F-150 customers are able to choose from one of two trims – Lariat and Platinum, which retail for R$470,000 ($90,940 USD) and R$490,000 ($94,810 USD), respectively, and both are equipped exclusively with the Ford 5.0L V8 Coyote engine. All Brazilian F-150 trucks come equipped with four-wheel drive and the FX4 Off-Road Package, with Lariat models featuring dark trim and the Platinum range equipped with chrome and various other bright elements.
“The delivery schedule of the F-150 for customers in the pre-sale was 90 to 120 days. This deadline is maintained and, in many cases, can even be anticipated,” said Dennis Rossini, Product Marketing Manager at Ford Brazil. “We know that customers are eager to receive their pickup and we reaffirm our commitment so that they can have possession of the vehicle as soon as possible.”
