    serch.it?q=Ford-F-Series

    The Ford F-Series is a series of light-duty trucks and medium-duty trucks (Class 2-7) that have been marketed and manufactured by Ford Motor Company since 1948. While most variants of the F-Series trucks are full-size pickup trucks, the F-Series also includes chassis cab trucks and commercial vehicles. The Ford F-Series has been the best-selling vehicle in the United States since 1986 and the best-selling pickup since 1977. It is also the best selling vehicle in Canada. As of the 2018 model year, the F-Series generates $ billion in annual revenue for Ford, making the F-Series brand more valuable than Coca-Cola and Nike. In 1999, to bridge the gap between the pickup line and the medium-duty trucks, the F-250 and F-350 became the Ford Super Duty vehicles; considered an expansion of the F-Series, the Super Duty trucks are built on a distinct chassis with heavier-duty components. As of the 2017 model year, the F-Series includes the F-150, the Super Duty (F-250 through F-550), and F-650 and F-750 Super Duty medium-duty commercial trucks. The most popular version of the F-Series is the F-150, now in its thirteenth generation.

  • Ford Y-block engine

    serch.it?q=Ford-Y-block-engine

    The Y-block engine is a family of overhead valve V8 automobile engines produced by Ford Motor Company. The engine is known for its deep skirting, which causes the engine block to resemble a Y, whence it gets its name. It was introduced in 1954 and used in Ford cars and trucks to replace the side-valved Ford Flathead V8, and replaced by the Ford FE engine (on medium cars) and the Ford Windsor engine (on small cars) in 1962, and lasted until 1964 in Ford trucks. By 1948 the famous Ford Flathead V8 had been developed about as far as it could go, and by the early 1950s the venerable Ford Flathead V8 was antiquated. Ford was always the most conservative of the major automakers, holding onto older designs far longer than GM or Chrysler, but market forces pushed Ford to develop new designs in the 1950s. Management at Ford Motor Company instructed its engineers to develop a new engine for the future. By 1952 Ford had new OHV 6-cylinder engine (215 in³ I-6) and Lincoln had a 317 in³ OHV V8. The company had designed the Y-block for a 1953 introduction, but a shortage of nickel due to Korean war needs prevented the company from manufacturing the engine in sufficient quantities.
