1999 ford truck ad

This week’s Throwback video takes us back to 1998, when Ford Motor Company was bragging about the Ford truck lineup for the 1999 model year.

The commercial talks about how the F-150 has the most powerful standard engine in the half ton class, how the Ford Ranger is the only compact pickup with a standard 4-door configuration, how the F-150 is the only full sized pickup with a standard 4-door configuration and how Ford F Series trucks combine with the Ranger to be the bestselling trucks on the market.

It should be noted that while the other automakers selling trucks in the U.S. have all stepped up their games a great deal since the late 1990s – eliminating advantages like a 4-door design and watching the Ranger disappear altogether – the Ford truck lineup is still by far the bestselling in the world.

Crank up your speakers and enjoy!
