The Ford F150 is America's best selling vehicle, and has been since 1983. The F-series was first produced in 1948 and was known as the Bonus-Built. Ford orginially offered eight different weight ratings. The most common was the F1, which featured a six and a half foot truck bed and had a half ton carrying capacity. Until 1987 all Ford F-series trucks had sealed beam headlights, so these early models cannot be upgraded to HID headlights or LED headlights.    

The 1949 F-series truck offered color coded wheels that matched the body color. Previously, the 1948 model had only black wheels. The upgraded 1950 F-series truck featured a three speed transmission that was mounted on the steering column, rather than the floor, giving addition room for passengers on the bench seat.

By 1951 the F-series trucks had been restyled with chrome headlight surrounds and the grille color was changed twice - firstly to silver and then ivory. A hardwood truck bed replaced the previous metal one and some new styling such as a V8 emblem and side spears were added.
1952 saw the introduction of VIN plates to the Ford F-series. They were mounted on the rear face of the driver's door. The information was only basic - it included the vehicle identification number, year, model, assembly plant and sequence number.  
By 1953 the F-series truck was completely redesigned and released as the second generation. They were larger in overall dimensions, plus they featured improved engines and chassis. The second generation was the first time the F100 model name was used. It was introduced as a weight rating system and remains in place still today.
There was no change in body styling for the 1954 Ford F100, but a new engine was released that produced 115 horse power, an increase of fifteen horse power from the previous engine. The 1955 F100 featured the first V8 engine seen in the F-series. The initial release of this engine produced 130hp, but a revised model produced 173hp. 
In 1956 a new body design was released for the F100, but this was only produced for one year until the release of a new body shape the following year. Seat belts were also released in 1956, but only as an optional extra. 
The third generation Ford F100 was sold from 1957-1960. The 1957 model was released with a new body shape with a widened body which combined the front fenders with the cab, giving the truck a larger and wider appearance. In 1958 the F100 went from dual headlights to quad headlights. Then in 1959 Ford introduced four wheel drive to the F100 for the first time. 
The 1959 and 1960 F100s featured a 292 cubic inch Y block V8 engine. Models offered in 1960 were the F150, F250 and F350. 
1961 saw the introduction of the forth generation of F-100. Increased body length and lower suspension were the two main features. There were also offered in different engine and gearbox configurations. 1961-1962 F100 trucks were the unibody style where the cab and the rear body tray were joined. This designed proved unpopular and was dropped by half way through 1963.
There was only a slight difference from 1964 to 1965 F100 design. The turn signals were mounted above the headlights on the latter. The 1965 F100 featured a new chassis design together with coil spring I-beam suspension. The 65 and 66 models featured a 300 CID straight six engine with an output of 170hp. The 300 CID engine remained in production for for 31 years. 1966 was the final year the fourth generation F100 was produced.   
In 1967 the fifth generation F100 was born. It featured a larger cab with larger windows and three different trim options. Ford introduced side marker lights to the 1968 F100 to comply with the new federal vehicle regulations. In 1969 a new grille was added to the F-100 and a 302 cubic inch Ford Windsor V8 engine was offered. Styling was the major change to the 1970 F100 with yet another new grille and wrap around turn signals and new side marker lights. 
New body colors were offered in 1971, but more exciting was the introduction of an AM/FM radio. Then in 1972, (the final year the fifth generation was produced) power brakes were added to the four wheel drive model. 
1973 brought about the super cab sixth generation Ford F100. This revision brought about modern improvements such as front disc brakes and a larger cab with better designed air-conditioning and heating. The 1974 F100 supercab offered seating for six persons making it particularly popular with contractors and campers. In 1975 the F100 featured H6024 sealed beam headlights that were recessed into the front grille.   
In 1976 a black grille was introduced to the F100 together with black headlight surrounds, giving the truck a new refined appearance. The 1977 F150 also saw some exterior styling changes including the introduction of the FORD lettering along the front edge of the hood. 1978 was the final year for round sealed beam headlights on the F100. They were replaced by square sealed beam headlights on the 1979 F150. which was also the final year of production for the sixth generation F-series. 
The 1980 seventh generation Ford F-series were a completely redesigned vehicle with all new chassis and exterior styling. Improved fuel economy was a major focus of the seventh generation of F-150, so the 1981 F-series featured a series of fuel efficient small block engines. By 1982 some of those engines were dropped because they had gained a reputation for being underpowered. 1983 was the final year the F100 was sold, which made the F-150 the base model in the F-series. 
1984 F150 received a trim upgrade and a 351 cubic inch Windsor with a 210hp output was also added to the range that same year. The 1985 F150 was available in seventeen different color combinations including two tone varieties. The optional extras available on the F150 by 1986 were many and varied allowing buyers to fully customize their new truck. The seventh generation were the last of the F150 built with glass headlights.
1987 and the 8th generation of F150 was born. The truck body was much the same as the previous generation, but the trim was completely redesigned. This version of the F150 was the first time halogen headlight bulbs were used. They were a dual beam 9004 bulb type. These bulbs can be upgraded to HID xenon for much improved road illumination. 1988 saw the introduction of fuel injection to the F-series V8 engines and in 1989 electronic automatic transmissions were also introduced. 
In 1990 a unique new trim called 'Nite' was offered to F150 buyers. It was all black with pink or purple pinstripes. 1991 was the beginning of the ninth generation of the Ford F150. The changes were mainly cosmetic with an improved aerodynamic body design. In 1992, the F150 headlight bulb was changed from 9004 to 9007 along with a new enlarged headlight housing design. The 9007 is a dual beam bulb type that can be easily upgraded to Bi-Xenon with a HID conversion kit. In 1992 the XLT Lariat model name was also shortened to just XLT. 
The F-150 SVT (special vehicle team) Lightning was a big release for Ford in 1993. It featured a 5.8 liter 240 horse power V8 engine. The release received a lot of publicity that helped secure the #1 position for truck sales in America. 
1994 brought about some safety related upgrades to the F150 with an airbag for the driver becoming standard equipment. A third brake light was also mounted to the rear of the truck cab. 
In 1995 fog lights were introduced on the F150. The bulb was a H3 single beam. These can be upgraded to HID xenon with a HID kit. 1996 was the final year of the ninth generation F150. 
In 1997 the tenth generation F-series was released. It was completely redesigned from scratch and over 746,000 F150 trucks were sold in the United States that year. The headlight bulb remained the same as the previous year, but the fog light was changed from H3 to 9006. Ford sold 836,000 F150 vehicles in 1998, an improvement of 90,000 on the previous year's sales. 
1999 saw the release of three new types of F-150; the Harley-Davidson Edition, the King Ranch a new Lightning model.
In the year 2000 a F150 was introduced to the F-series range with four full size doors. It was known as the 'Supercrew'. 2001 was the most successful year on record for the F150 with a total of 911,597 units sold in the United States. 2002 was still a very successful year for Ford with 813,000 F-150 trucks sold in the USA. 
The 2003 Ford F-150 STX featured headlights with clear lenses and round fog lamps that used a 9145 bulb type. The clear lens headlights were a first for the F-series trucks and were marketed toward younger buyers. In 2004 Ford introduced the eleventh generation F150. The new model featured dual beam headlights with a H13 bulb type. This model was a popular candidate for upgrade to HID or LED headlights.  
The 2005 F150 was a great looking truck. It was also sold by Lincoln as the Mark-LT. 2006 was the introduction of the flex-fuel version Ford F150. These engine types were able to run on ethanol. The 2007 Ford F150 was known for it's much higher safety standards. It was rated five stars for the first time ever. 2008 was the final year of production for the eleventh generation F-150. That year a special 'Foose Edition' F150 was released with a supercharged 450hp V8 engine.
In 2009 the twelfth generation F150 was released. One of the distinctive features of this release was the larger headlights and grille. Sales of the F150 suffered greatly this year with only 413,000 units sold in the United States. In 2010 the F150 SVT Raptor was introduced to the range of F-series as a dedicated off-road vehicle.  
MotorFiend stocks LED headlights for 2009-2013 model Ford F150 trucks. In 2011 Ford replaced both the V6 and V8 engines in the F150 with more fuel efficient versions. In 2012 there was ten different model variations available in the F150 range - the highest number since it's introduction. The models were: XL, XLT, STX, SVT Raptor, King Ranch, FX2, FX4, Lariat, Platinum and Harley-Davidson.
High Intensity Discharge Headlamps (also known as HID Xenon) were added as an optional extra on the F150 in 2013. The bulb type was a D3S for the HID, but the standard halogen bulb remained as a H13. Over 750,000 F150 units were sold in the USA in 2014, which was the final year for the twelfth generation.
The current model 2015 F150 is the thirteenth generation F-series. A new option introduced on this model was LED headlights. The halogen version use separate bulbs for the high beam (9005) and low beam (H11). The halogen model headlights can be upgraded to HID or LED with single beam headlight kits.
