The most common Ford at used car dealers is the F-150 pickup truck, largely due to its status as the best-selling vehicle of any kind in the United States for 28 years. Other models commonly sold by used car dealers include the Taurus, Mustang, Escort and Explorer.
While many models of Ford show up at used car dealers, the large production numbers of the F-150, Taurus Escort and Mustang make it more likely for these vehicles to end up in used car lots. The Taurus was the best-selling car in the United States from 1992 to 1996, with over 7 million produced before the discontinuation of production of the original-style model in 2007. The Taurus was replaced as the best-selling vehicle in America by the F-150, which still holds that title as of 2015. Over 33 million F-series trucks have been produced since the model's inception in 1948.
While the F-150 is the best selling vehicle in the United States, the Ford Focus was the best-selling vehicle in the world in 2013. However, the Focus met with relatively tepid sales in the United States, so despite being one of the most popular cars in the world, it is a relative rarity compared to other Fords on used car lots.
