Ford is already celebrating the production of its five-millionth F-Series Super Duty pickup.
The milestone pickup is scheduled to roll off the assembly line next month at Ford’s Kentucky Truck Plant, which has produced F-250 to F-550 models for the past 15 years.
To highlight the achievement, the company has reflected on its Triton 6.8-liter V10 engine from the 1999 model year. As the largest gasoline engine in the original Super Duty lineup, it produced 275-horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque.
The current heavy-duty pickups benefit from a 6.2-liter V8 that delivers 385-ponies and 405 lb-ft of twist, while a 6.7-liter V8 turbodiesel provides 440 horsepower and 860 lb-ft of torque.
Ford claims its Super Duty models lead the heavy-duty segment, with 44 percent market share over the past year.
