The Ford LN-Series, also known as the “Louisville Line,” was a range of medium- and heavy-duty trucks manufactured by Ford Motor Company. Produced from the late 1970s through the 1990s, the LN-Series trucks were designed to cater to commercial and vocational applications, offering versatility and reliability in various industries.
These trucks were renowned for their robust construction and durability, suitable for tasks such as regional hauling, delivery, construction, and other vocational uses. The LN-Series featured a broad spectrum of models with varying gross vehicle weight ratings (GVWR), allowing customers to select trucks tailored to their specific needs.
Engine options for the LN-Series included both gasoline and diesel powerplants, providing a balance between power and fuel efficiency. These trucks were equipped with sturdy chassis and suspension systems designed to withstand heavy loads and rugged working conditions.
The cab configurations of the LN-Series trucks were designed with driver comfort and functionality in mind. They offered spacious and ergonomic interiors, with options for various cab styles and amenities to suit different driver preferences and job requirements.
Ford’s LN-Series trucks were valued for their reliability, adaptability, and ease of maintenance, making them popular among fleet operators and businesses requiring dependable workhorses for commercial applications.
Over time, changes in the commercial truck market, evolving industry demands, and advancements in truck technology led to the discontinuation of the LN-Series. It made way for newer generations of medium- and heavy-duty trucks in Ford’s lineup, each iteration building upon the legacy of reliability and utility established by the LN-Series trucks.
