- The F-150 underwent a risky redesign for the 13th generation of the vehicle — arguably the riskiest since the truck first arrived in 1947. Ford engineered the pickup with more lightweight aluminum.
- This week, the all-new 2021 Ford F-150 will be revealed.

This is a very big week in the US auto industry.
On Thursday, Ford is revealing its all-new, 14th-generation F-150 pickup truck. The F-150 has been the bestselling vehicle in American since 1981. It's far and away the most important four-wheeled machine that Dearborn produces. As goes the F-150, so goes the Ford Motor Company.
The F-150 was rather radically and successfully redesigned in 2014, then updated in 2017. But the competition has kept pace: the Chevy Silverado, GMC Sierra, and RAM 1500 are all new or relatively new.
That means that 2020 and 2021 could bring an even more intense pickup truck contest to the USA. It's worth noting that even an the coronavirus pandemic has damaged auto sales, pickups have continued to attracted customers. It's also worth noting that Ford, GM, and Fiat Chrysler automobiles make major profits on their full-size pickups.
I've checked out every full-size pickup on the market. They're all pretty great. But the F-150 is ... special. Here's why:
Ford F-150, the reigning king. The champ. The legend. The icon.
Humble beginnings! The Ford F1 was the original F-Series pickup. It rolled out in 1947, right after the end of World War II.
The 13th generation of the F-150 hit the streets for the 2015 model year. It was the most risky redesign of the icon in its long history, as Ford introduced lightweight aluminum to the construction.

The mechanically similar but more upscale GMC Sierra is also a contender.
The RAM 1500 came on strong after it was updated for the 2019 model year.

The Toyota Tundra has gotten long in the tooth, but this perennial number five in the US pickup-truck race remains a great vehicle.

Even through it brings up the rear, the Nissan Titan has a lot going for it.

BUT the F-150 is the king. The F-150's midcycle design refresh for 2016 wasn't anything dramatic. The biggest difference was the beefed-up front grille, lending a more aggressive demeanor to America's favorite truck.
Ranked: 10 best-selling new trucks in the U.S. in 2021
Toyota isn't always top of mind when it comes to performance cars, but the Japanese giant has a few tricks up its sleeve. There's the Supra, which the automaker partnered with BMW to produce and there's also the not-for-the-U.S. GR Yaris. The hotted-up hatchback features tremendous power and a four-wheel drive system, but buyers here can only watch jealously as our friends in Europe and elsewhere get all the fun. That's about to change for U.S. buyers, however, as Toyota has begun teasing the GR Corolla hatchback, which we will get.
The automaker posted a cryptic image to Instagram a month ago, but it's still making the rounds on the internet today, with users of the GR Corolla Forum still discussing the post today. The teaser, which is of the Corolla's interior, features hints as to what we might see when the car debuts. The navigation screen shows GR Four road, which points to the car's four-wheel drive system, while a G:16 on the clock in the gauge cluster represents the G16E-GTS engine that the car is expected to get. The GR Yaris also sports that engine, where it produces 268 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque.
GR, or Gazoo Racing, is Toyota's motorsport armToyota Europe
The GR Corolla should break cover next year, but we don't yet know if it will be a 2022 or 2023 model. As far as pricing goes, Toyota may pull out some surprises, but the car will likely be far more expensive than an everyday Corolla. The smaller GR Yaris is priced starting at nearly $40,000 in Europe, so the Corolla's price tag should be around or slightly above that number.
The most stolen vehicle in America is this pickup
The Ford F-Series pickup is a popular model … with thieves.

World Best Selling Pick Up up to June 2021 was led once again by large American style models. The Fiat Strada impresses by entering the leaderboard and jumping up to 10th place, while the Ram Pick-up regains second position.
The undiscussed market leader remains the Ford F-Series, which hit the milestone of 1 million sales in 2017. US and Canada represent 98% of total sales. Up to June 2021, the Ford F-Series registered 431,153 units (13.5% market share).
In second place we have the Ram Pick-Up -up 1 spot- selling 354,382 units (11.1% share), overtaking the Chevrolet Silverado with 314,284 units sold (9.9% share).
In fourth place the king of the desert, the Toyota Hilux, with 270,829 sales. Differently from the previous three models, the Hilux sales are distributed over 140 different markets, dominating entire areas in Africa, South America, and the Middle East.

With the tumultuous year 2020 finally over, we can look back and see how all of the chaos affected automotive sales in the United States. Here's a hint: the numbers for most of these models are down year over year.
20. Subaru Outback:
153,294 Units (Down 15.4 Percent)
Be prepared to see a lot of SUVs and crossovers on the 2020 bestseller list. To start, here's the Subaru Outback that blends takes the classic look of a station wagon but adds a lifted suspension and all-wheel drive for more utility.
19. Subaru Forester:
176,996 Units (Down 1.8 Percent)
The Subaru Forester has a refresh on the way, but buyers are still attracted to the existing version of the crossover. It was also Subaru's strongest selling product.
18. Ford Escape:
178,496 Units (Down 26.1 Percent)
Even with sales down over a quarter from last year, the Ford Escape proved to be a strong seller. We are interested to see how it performs in 2021 when the Bronco Sport has a full year on the market potentially to lure customers away from this more smoothly styled crossover.
17. Honda Accord:
199,458 Units (Down 25.5 Percent)
Here is the first of the very few traditional sedans to make the bestseller list. The refreshed Accord debuted in October 2020 to keep the sedan competitive for the years to come.
16. Jeep Wrangler:
201,311 Units (Down 12 Percent)
The Jeep Wrangler is famously rugged, and that toughness clearly attracts buyers. The company is even expanding the range with the 4Xe plug-in hybrid.
15. Jeep Grand Cherokee:
209,786 Units (Down 14 Percent)
A new generation of the Jeep Grand Cherokee will arrive in 2021, but, even in its final year, the existing model remains very popular.
14. Toyota Highlander:
212,276 Units (Down 11.3 Percent)
The latest generation of the Toyota Highlander went on sale in February, and buyers loved it so much that the three-row crossover earned a solid spot on the bestseller list.
13. Ford Explorer:
226,217 Units (Up 20.9 Percent)
In its first full year of sales, the sixth-generation Ford Explorer remained a popular entry in its segment. Although, the buyers had to deal with lots of recalls.
12. Nissan Rogue:
227,935 Units (Down 35 Percent)
Sales dropped by over a third from last year, but the Nissan Rogue remained a bestseller. A redesigned model went on sale in October 2020, which should keep the crossover popular going forward.
11. Toyota Corolla:
237,178 Units (Down 22.2 Percent)
Folks shopping for a small sedan (or hatchback) continue to see the allure of the Corolla.
10. Toyota Tacoma:
238,806 Units (Down 4 Percent)
The bestseller list enters the top ten, and get ready to see quite a few pickups. The Toyota Tacoma is the only midsize truck among them, though.
9. GMC Sierra:
253,016 Units (Up 8.9 Percent)
General Motors reports the sales numbers for the Sierra 1500 and heavy duty both separately and together. However, Ford and Ram only offer the total for all variants. For easier comparison, the number above is the sum for all of the available models, too.
8. Honda Civic:
261,225 Units (Down 19.8 Percent)
Similar to the Grand Cherokee, there's a new generation of the Civic coming in 2021. Despite its age, the existing Civic still proved popular.
7. Chevrolet Equinox:
270,994 Units (Down 21.7 Percent)
Chevy had to delay introducing the updated Equinox, but buyers didn't seem to care. Customers still purchased enough of them to be among the best-selling vehicles on the market.
6. Toyota Camry:
294,348 Units (Down 12.7 Percent)
Even in a world where crossovers are increasingly popular, there's still a lot of love for the venerable Camry. For the 2021 model year, the sedan receives styling and tech upgrades that should keep it high on the bestseller list next year.
5. Honda CR-V:
333,502 Units (Down 13.2 Percent)
The Honda CR-V received a refresh for the 2020 model year that tweaked the styling slightly and a hybrid powertrain option. Buyers responded by putting it in the top five of America's best-selling vehicles.
4. Toyota RAV4:
430,387 Units (Down 3.9 Percent)
The Toyota RAV4 is the direct competitor to the Honda CR-V, and nearly 100,000 people apparently preferred putting Toyota in their driveway in 2020.
3. Ram Pickups:
563,676 Units (Down 11 Percent)
Pickups are a big business in the US. The exciting news from Ram this year was the introduction of the performance-focused TRX with the Hellcat V8.
2. Chevrolet Silverado:
594,094 Units (Up 3.2 Percent)
The Bowtie's pickups remained very popular in 2020. For the 2021 model year, Chevy made the Silverado available with the Multi-Flex tailgate.
1. Ford F-Series:
787,422 Units (Down 12.2 Percent)
The Ford F-Series is once again the most popular vehicle among buyers in the country. According to the Blue Oval, its family of trucks has scored the title of America's best-selling pickup for the 44th straight year.
