New Ford F-150 Truck A Favorite Among Veterans

February 6th, 2018


Borgman Ford in Grand Rapids was pleased to hear that the Ford F-150 was named the top truck choice among veterans of our armed forces.

Many features of the New Ford F-150 are likely a part of the appeal to veterans, including the tough-as-nails frame, high-strength aluminum-alloy body, powerful engines, and numerous tech features like the onboard WiFi Hotspot and SYNC 3.

Below is an excerpt from an article published in the Official Ford Media Center, recognizing the Ford F-150 as the favorite truck of veterans.

Ford F-150 The Favorite Vehicle Of America’s Military

Ford F-150 has again been named most popular vehicle among America’s active and retired military service members, according to an analysis of former and active-duty military personnel using United Services Automobile Association’s car buying service.

This honor reflects 41 years of Ford’s uncompromising commitment to quality, durability and resilience with F-Series as America’s best-selling truck and 36 years as America’s best-selling vehicle.

According to Jimmy Spears, auto analyst for USAA, a financial services group, Ford F-150 was the No. 1 purchase choice across all branches of the U.S. military last year.

“We are proud and humbled that those who protect and defend our country choose Ford F-Series,” said Todd Eckert, Ford truck group marketing manager.“F-150’s high-strength, military-grade, aluminum-alloy body is designed to serve customers who are used to performing in the harshest of environments and who rely on the capability, durability, and functionality delivered consistently by Built Ford Tough.”
