Ford F-150 Was World’s Ninth Best-Selling Vehicle In 2022

The Ford F-Series lineup is an enormously important group of vehicles for The Blue Oval, which perennially relies on sales from the Ford F-150 and Ford Super Duty pickups for a substantial portion of its profits. As Ford Authority previously reported, the Super Duty alone accounts for about one quarter of the automaker’s profits globally. That said, its smaller sibling is generally the more visible pickup, since it is more popular in terms of volume. Fortunately, a new report from JATO Dynamics recently outlined more specific sales data about the full-size pickup, and outlined where it is positioned in terms of planet Earth’s best-selling vehicles of 2022.

According to new vehicle registration data, the Ford F-150 was the ninth best-selling vehicle globally in 2022, down five percent from 2021. The Toyota Rav4 came in first, selling over one million units, and the Japanese automaker had a total of five vehicles in the top ten, including the Hilux, which outsold the F-150 by over 100,000 units. Sedans and crossovers each accounted for four positions, although based on the data, the latter type of vehicle is becoming more popular, likely at the expense of the former.

Aside from the basic data outlined by the chart, as it relates to Ford, the numbers presented here are a seldom-glimpsed window into The Blue Oval’s crown jewel, since the company currently combines Ford F-150 and Ford Super Duty sales numbers, a practice rivals GM and Stellantis also utilize. Based on Ford F-Series U.S. sales data from 2022, the company sold just under 654,000 units for the calendar year, which would put the lineup just ahead of the Hilux if both nameplates were combined.

Additionally, the sales data also highlights the uphill climb Tesla’s rivals face when trying to match its EV sales, as the Model Y has become a global sales juggernaut. At this point, the Ford Mustang Mach-E will almost certainly not catch up to the crossover, but then again, no other EV in the segment can either. With supply chain constraints less of an issue this year, it’s possible that the Ford F-150 will climb a spot or two, although production is currently being impacted by a door handle shortage.
