Ford dominates the truck market, and the fact that GM is trying to add sales of trucks that in reality compete against each other just proves their desperation to say "Yeah we are better cuz more people buy our trucks". Whats next? Are we gonna add their Van and SUV sales together with their trucks since they use the same platform?

Yes.

It doesn't matter, none of us have personally counted the sales numbers from Ford and GM, so there's really no way for any of us to know if those numbers are actually truthful, or if they're stretched.

Ironically, that's about the same year Ford brought out the F150. Hmmmm, that's strange to me.

How come they never mention the F100 to be a number one selling truck before the F150? I highly doubt that all of a sudden sales jumped enough to make the F150 the highest selling truck, and then allowed that to go on for 35 years.

because you dont count an F-100 as an F-150 because they where both sold at the same time theres 1980 f-150s and 1980 f-100s so you cant really call it the same truck.. it goes by the badge that is on the truck because that is what it is sold as and that is what it is counted as when you make the list of total vehicles sold and yes sales did increase a fair amount when the f-150 came out

I like how this thread has flowed from Ford vs. Ferrari to "what is the best selling truck?"

That's not what I was talking about at all. The F150 didn't come out until 1975. The F100 was around since 1953, yet it's never been known to be the best selling truck. Then in 1975, Ford brings out the F150, and Bam, it instantly becomes the best selling truck for the next 34 years. The F150 shares more with the F100 than it differs. By the time my F100 was built, the differences between an F100 and F150 could be counted on two hands. So why wasn't the F100 the best selling truck before 1975, when it essentially was the same truck?

your missing the point they cant call the f-150 the best selling truck for 60 years because it wasnt the f-150 untill 75 and yes i know when the f-100 was made my dad has a 54 in the garage and i personally think the 53-56 f-100's are some of the most beautiful trucks to ever exists

Yes that's true, but how come they don't give any credit to the F100, which most likely would have been the best selling truck as well before 1975?

because the f-100 is the past.. just like they dont talk about how the ford GT40 won le-manns 4 years in a row and went 1-2-3 in 1966 its part of the past and dosent really help the company out at all to mention it these days..

The GT40 is out of the general buying public's price range, so that makes sense, but who is really gonna jump down Ford's ass if they call the F100 F150? It's the same dang truck anyway.

Maybe Ford should change the name of the F150 to the F200 and bring everything up 50 like the 250=300 and the 350=400, the trucks have gown in size and performance since 34 yrs ago, perhaps the badge should show that as well and then ford could bring back the F100 which would be a revamped Ranger that IS AVAILABLE in North America. Am I on to something or am I rambling on (Led Zep Reference

They have grown because a few months ago I was next to an f-100 Ranger at a stoplight and It was the same size as my 2004 Ranger

I think you might have something but I dont think they would ever do that
