Best selling vehicle in '22? It was a Ford

Test drive: 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor

The 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor is the best version yet of Ford’s high performance pickup, but Fox News Autos Editor Gary Gastelu says it may soon be even better.

The Ford F-Series marked 40 consecutive years as America’s best-selling vehicle last year and will almost certainly retain the title in 2022, just like a Ford did in 1922.

That year the revolutionary Model T became the first vehicle to surpass one million sales in a calendar year, with over 1.3 million delivered globally.

Like the F-Series, the Model T line comprised several variants, although they ranged from cars to trucks.

Seven different versions of the Model T were sold that year, including a coupe, four-door and a pickup-like single cab.

The entry-level Runabout had a starting price of $319, which would be $4,803 today.

The F-150 Lightning that goes on sale this year will be the first all-electric version of the pickup.

However, Model T’s record was crushed the following year by … the Model T, when it became the first car to break the two million sales mark.

Ford would go on to sell 16.5 million Model Ts by the time it was discontinued in 1927, which was a record at the time, but is a far cry from the F-Series’ current tally, which stands at over 40 million.
