The Ford F-150 was one of the most influential pickup trucks of all time. The F-150 outsold just about every other pickup truck on the market for decades. The model that was introduced in 1997 was one of the most modern and most comfortable pickup trucks on the road (via Readers Digest).
Even the most popular generation of the F-150 was not without its fair share of problems. The engine was notorious for timing chain failures. The F-150 was also known for electrical shorts which would happen on the interior as well as with engine components.
