But what you might not know is that the Henry Ford Company dates back to 1901, with the first vehicle released in 1903.

Amazing Name Recognition

Many car enthusiasts are shocked to learn that two of the significant investors in Henry Ford's business were John and Horace Dodge. Yes, those are the same brothers who would later step away from Ford and begin the company that bears their name. So there is some truth to the saying that Henry Ford should be credited with the birth of the automobile in the United States.

The Early Models

There were no points given for creativity when naming the early Ford models. The early names included A, B, C, and F. These first Ford vehicles sold thousands of units in a single year. In 1908, the Model T was released and took the world by storm. Millions of Model T vehicles were sold over the next 20 years, making it the most famous Ford on the road. In 1927, the Model A took over as the Ford powerhouse sporting the first-ever safety glass windshield.

The Discovery Of Demographics

In 1939, Ford to a giant step forward by introducing the first Mercury. This line had a higher price and focused on more discerning buyers. The Mercury became the mid-level line between the basic Ford models on the lower end and the Lincoln brand acquired in 1922 as a premium vehicle to compete with the high-end Cadillac and other luxury vehicles.

More Big Name Acquisitions

More recently, the Ford brand decided to make a big splash in the luxury car market by purchasing Jaguar and Aston Martin in the 1990s. But that venture into the high-end market was short-lived. By the end of the 90s, Ford began to struggle, as did the entire vehicle industry. At that point, it was determined that the parent company would only survive if it sold off some of the more expensive brands that were barely selling and resized the original brand to be more profitable in the new economic climate. In recent years, Ford has focused on crossover SUVs, hybrids, and improving fuel economy to remain a leader in the automotive industry.

Some Things Never Change

Over the years, brands and models have changed drastically in some cases, but there are two constants under the Ford umbrella, the Mustang, and the F-Series. Born in the 1940s, the F-Series has continued to set sales records and remains popular with truck buyers. Likewise, the Mustang name is synonymous with American Muscle because everyone knows nothing runs like a Pony.
