Ford F-Series Retains Best-Selling Truck Crown For 2023

It’s no secret that the Ford F-Series is an enormously important lineup of trucks for the automaker, and through the years, it’s something that the company never lets the public forget. For 2022, the lineup unsurprisingly retained the title as the best-selling truck in the United States for 46 consecutive years. And now, according to the company, it will also finish out 2023 as the best-selling truck in America too, according to Robert Kaffl, director of U.S. sales.

The company based its number off data from calendar year total sales from 1977 through November 2023 and its internal projections for December. Kaffl, says that more than 700,000 customers have purchased a Ford F-Series thus far, which is backed up by the most recent sales data through November, when the company said it had sold 659,583 examples for 2023. The exact amount of F-Series pickups sold in the United States will be publicly available when the company releases its December 2023 U.S. sales report next week.

As the above graphic illustrates, Ford also says that the Ford F-150 PowerBoost hybrid is the best-selling pickup of its type in America, and that the Ford F-150 Lightning is the best-selling full-size electric truck as well.

“F-Series is a testament to our commitment to excellence, innovation, and understanding the needs of our customers. Our trucks are Built Ford Tough, and they embody the strength, reliability, and versatility that our customers have come to rely on for nearly half a century. And F-Series represents the best of Ford and how we’re creating new digital experiences: it features available technologies like Pro Power Onboard, which helps customers power work sites or even their home in the event of a power outage; features that makes it easier to hitch and tow a trailer, and even BlueCruise hands-free highway driving,” said Kaffl.

In all likelihood, the Ford F-Series will retain its status as the best-selling pickup for 2024 as well, due to several factors. Most importantly, the introduction of the 2024 Ford F-150, which debuts the all-new Pro Access Tailgate. The 3.5L PowerBoost hybrid V6 engine has also been given a less expensive price tag and is more widely available through the refreshed lineup. Additionally, the Ford Super Duty will likely be easier to come by, as the company ramps up production after substantial quality checks impacted output of the all-new model and the disruption brought on by the UAW strike, which shuttered the Kentucky Truck plant for several weeks in October.

    GM still sells more trucks, they just give the exact same truck 2 different names. It’s no different than Ford taking the Class 4 F-450, saying it’s a Class 3 truck on paper and bragging they beat all the 3500s on the market.

      The Silverado and Sierra are not the exact same truck. Can you use the Silverado headlight assembly on a Sierra? What about the grill, fenders and front bumper? Even the interiors are quite different.

      Ford doesn’t need to brag about the F450 having no competition…the F350 lays down a beating on them just fine.

        Also the interiors of GMC have better guality materials and better sound deadening. Common sense would tell you there must be a difference since you pay more for GMC pickups.

    In my life time I have owned a 1992, 1998, 2014 F-150s a 2000 F-250, a 2003, 2005, 2012, 2014, and now 2017 F-350. All the 250 and 350s have been diesel.

    Funny how Chevy guys cry that the Silverado and the Sierra are the same. It’s like adding Ford’s and Mercurys or Chevy Cadillac Buick Pontiac & etc were all the same in inventory!!

    Chevy guys buying the Silverado since they couldn’t afford the way different more expensive GMC truck.
