Ford P Platform

The Ford P Platform, or also known as P552/P558 for the current generation F-150 and F-Series Super Duty, respectively, is the designation used for a Ford Motor Company vehicle architecture designed to underpin full-size light duty and heavy duty pickup trucks.

The P platform has several predecessors, including the P3 and P2 platforms. The purpose of the P platform is to underpin mass-market Ford F-Series full-size pickup trucks and all of their variants, ranging between half-ton, three-quarter-ton and one-ton trucks.

This platform is currently in production for vehicles sold under the Ford nameplate worldwide. Here are the Ford vehicles currently sold in the U.S. and Canada that ride on the Ford P platform:

Future Models

The Ford F-150 is scheduled to receive a complete model redesign for the 2021 model year. It is currently unclear if the 2021 Ford F-150 will continue to ride on the Ford P Platform. Ford has, however, however confirmed plans to bring a battery electric F-150, while a hybrid model is also on the way.


All variants of models on the Ford P Platform are currently on sale, including the F-150 that launched for the 2015 model year as well as the updated 2020 Ford Super Duty that arrived in North American showrooms during the first quarter of 2020, bringing with it the first-ever Tremor off-road-dedicated variant.
