The Military Loves Ford and the F-150

For a long time, America’s favorite automotive brand has been Ford. And, it seems that preference is true among our military men and women, too. In a recent survey of military personnel, using data from the United Services Automobile Association’s (USAA) car buying service, it was discovered that our military loves Ford and the F-150, in particular.

For 41 years, the F-150 has been America’s best-selling truck and has been the best-selling vehicle for 36. With that reputation, it is not a surprise that military men and women love the F-150. Jimmy Spears, auto analyst for USAA, said the F-150 was the No. 1 vehicle purchased across all branches of the military last year.

“We are proud and humbled that those who protect and defend our country choose Ford F-Series,” said Todd Eckert, Ford truck group marketing manager. “F-150’s high-strength, military-grade, aluminum-alloy body is designed to serve customers who are used to performing in the harshest of environments and who rely on the capability, durability, and functionality delivered consistently by Built Ford Tough.”

The 2018 Ford F-150, which you can find here at Corwin Ford of Springfield, is the best F-150 ever. This year, it boasts an improved engine lineup, updated styling, and enhanced safety options.

With power, selection, and intelligence, it’s easy to see why the F-150 stands out among the competition.

“Back-to-back wins for F-150 and Super Duty reflect what we’re also seeing and hearing from customers as we celebrate 40 straight years as America’s favorite and best-selling trucks,” said Raj Nair, Ford executive vice president and president, North America. “The Ford Truck team stretched further than ever to deliver our toughest, most capable and smartest trucks.”
