History of Ford

Building upon a legacy of innovation, Ford Motors continues to develop cutting-edge technologies for its incredible lineup of vehicles each year. Every Ford vehicle is engineered to deliver impressive dependability, a design philosophy that goes back over 115 years to 1903, when the Ford Motor Company was founded with just 12 investors and the sum of $28,000.
The Ford Motor Company made automotive history in 1908, with the debut of the iconic Model T that is to this day one of the most successful automobiles of all time. This success was a springboard to decades of innovation from one of the earliest uses of the commercial moving assembly line in 1913, and the first successful roll-out of a V8 engine in 1932, to modern day breakthroughs in material technology like the lighter, stronger aluminum alloy body of the 13th generation F-150 in 2015. The automaker’s development of a stronger, lighter aluminum alloy body for the formidable, legendary pickup truck has resulted in 100 patents.
The Ford Motor Company is a proud American company. In World War I, the automaker aided Allies by manufacturing anti-submarine patrol boats, armored tanks, and even airplane components. During the war effort of World War II, the Ford Motor Company halted all civilian manufacturing to completely devote its efforts to producing motorized support for troops across the globe. Today, Ford continues its tradition of supporting the military with employment programs for military members transitioning to civilian life as well as discount programs for active military and veterans.
For decades, the automaker’s technology options have been and continue to be desirable, especially on today’s newest models. Ford SYNC® technology has allowed for smart device connectivity since 2008 and the automaker’s powerful turbocharged EcoBoost® engines have set new standards since 2009.
