And of course the best seller of Ford, car the most sold in the USA since 1978, more than 20 millions since 1978 and more since the first in 1948. around 600000 sales a year.

A base price very small : 21'000$ (985'950inr) for the cheapest model with a 4.6 V8 248hp, a very solid car and engine, explain largely the success, especially in rural areas. But the best selling engine is the 5.4 V8 310hp.
