The Ford F Series has been very popular among pickup trucks in the US for many years. In 2015 Ford sold more pick up trucks than all of its competitors including the Silverado, RAM, GMC, Tundra and Tacoma. According to TrueCar, the ford F-150 sold so many trucks that no other pickup truck came close to its sales numbers.
List of top pickup trucks sold in 2015:
Ford F-150 had 780,354 sales
Chevrolet Silverado 1500 had 600,554 sales

GMC Sierra 1500 had 224,139 sales
Toyota Tundra had 118,880 sales
Nissan Titan had only 12,140 sales
There are a few reasons as to why the Ford F-150 has been doing so great in sales in the past few years. Not only is it a great looking truck but it is very dependable. The F-150 has a towing capacity of 5000 pounds and it also gets up to 26 mpg which makes it a great work truck as well as a nice daily driver. The F-150 is perfect for transporting light loads, lumber, tools etc.
The Ford F-150 has gotten quite a few upgrades inside the truck to make it much more comfortable. With the option of leather seats, sleek chrome or traditional wood inside and a nice touch screen audio and navigation system, the F-150 no longer only has be used for work. It is a great truck to just take out when you’re going out at night or on a long drive.
Others F Series trucks have been selling very well too. Depending on what your needs are, an F-150 may not be the perfect truck for you. For heavier loads, the F-250 and F-350 may be better options for you. The F-150 is good for towing ½ a ton, whereas the F-250 is good for ¾ ton and the F-350 is a full one ton pickup truck.
Both the 250 and 350 are considered super-duty trucks, but the 150 beats them both when it come to cabin size. When measuring the legroom for front and back seats, the F-150 comes out to be more spacious than the other two trucks which makes it more comfortable and better for daily driving.
With all of the upgrades being made to the F series trucks, inside and out, they have remained the most popular trucks for years and will most likely continue to lead trucks sales in the future.
