The Ford P100 was a utility coupe-utility vehicle (commonly known as a “ute”) produced by Ford in the United Kingdom. It was a light commercial vehicle based on the Ford Sierra platform and was manufactured from 1971 to 1993.
The P100 was designed to bridge the gap between a car and a small pickup truck, offering the comfort and driving characteristics of a car with the practicality and cargo capacity of a pickup. It featured a cab similar to that of the Ford Sierra sedan but had an open cargo area at the back, making it suitable for carrying goods or light loads.
This model was available in various engine options, including petrol and diesel, providing different power outputs and fuel efficiency. It was also offered with different trim levels and configurations to cater to various customer needs, including both commercial use and personal transportation.
The Ford P100 gained popularity due to its versatility, offering the convenience of a car-like driving experience while providing the functionality of a pickup truck for light-duty tasks. Its compact size made it suitable for navigating urban environments while still offering a useful cargo area for transporting goods or equipment.
The P100 remained in production for over two decades, and although it eventually ceased production in 1993, it left a lasting legacy as a unique vehicle that combined elements of both a car and a pickup truck, catering to a specific niche in the market.
