The Ford F-150: Personifying Henry Ford

Without a doubt, Henry Ford is one of the most influential men in history. His revolution of the automotive industry brought vehicles to people in Utah and across the globe. It’s no surprise that Ford has continually sought to live up to the legacy set by its founder, and the Ford F-150 is no exception.

Henry Ford was raised on a farm, and his rural roots helped him cultivate an appreciation for hard work as well as a love for the outdoors. He was a man who kept working throughout his life – in fact, he didn’t retire from his position as President of the Ford Motor Company until he was 82 years old. He even spent the day of his death inspecting flood-damaged buildings.

You could say that the Ford F-150 embodies much of Henry Ford’s work ethic. This is a truck that doesn’t quit. Whether you plan on using it to enjoy the outdoors (like Henry was apt to do in his free time) or to haul the heaviest of loads to get your work done, you can be sure that the spirit of Henry Ford lives inside every Ford F-150. Of course, the best way to understand this is to get behind the wheel of one yourself. Come to Utah’s Henry Day Ford today and discover the spirit of Henry Ford.
