The automobile industry remains alive and well in the United States. Vehicles can be found in every aspect of daily life from ambulances to airport shuttle buses. In a given year, over 16 million passenger cars and light trucks were sold in the United States. These include vehicles like pickup trucks, delivery vans, and utility trucks. There have been many models of diesel trucks sold over the years. Here are three of the most popular Ford models that have been produced.
- The 2008-2010 Ford F-250/F-350: On of the most popular Ford models ever made is the 2008-2010 Ford F-250 and F-350. Diesel trucks, according to Autowise, are extremely popular because their diesel engines are easy to adjust to personal standards. And this model in particular had an engine that was easily adjustable, namely the 350-hp 6.4-liter Power Stroke Turbodiesel.
- The 1999-2000 Ford Super Duty: Another of the most popular Ford models was released twenty years ago starting in 1999. While it was only made for around a year and half, the Ford Super Duty is, according to Autowise, widely considered to be one of the greatest diesel trucks ever made. This particular model could be easily adjusted with new parts, which made it very popular, even to this day among diesel truck enthusiasts.
- The 2017 Ford Super Duty: Like its predecessor from almost twenty years ago, the 2017 Ford Super Duty remains incredibly popular even several years after it was first released. Part of what makes this diesel truck so popular, according to Motor Junkie, is that Ford built the truck using aluminum, which made the truck much lighter than previous models. This in turn increased payload and towing capacity.
In conclusion, while a number of diesel trucks have been made over the years, there are three popular Ford models that stand out above the rest. These include the 1999-2000 Ford Super Duty, the 2008-2010 Ford F-250 and Ford F-350, and most recently the 2017 Ford Super Duty. The first two trucks are popular for being reliable and having designs that can be easily modified. The most recent model is almost revolutionary for using aluminum in its body, making it one of the best Ford trucks ever made.
