Ford is an American automotive manufacturing division of the Ford Motor Company, which also owns the Lincoln luxury brand and now discontinued Mercury brand. The Ford brand is known for its lineup of powerful and large trucks and SUVs, its establishment of the muscle car class with the Ford Mustang pony car in 1964, and its pioneering of the American automotive market with the assembly line.

The Ford Motor Company was founded in 1903 and was a successor to the Henry Ford Company. The first publically sold Ford vehicle was the Model A, but the company didn’t see a huge level of success until the mass-produced Model T was released in 1908 and ended up selling millions.

The modern era of Ford is primarily focused on truck and SUV sales, having discontinued all of its cars (except for the Mustang) back in 2018. However, the company has expressed interest in bringing back sedans, coupes, and hatchbacks as it moves toward complete electrification, which so far has resulted in the F-150 Lighting pickup truck and the Mustang Mach-E compact SUV.
