Episodes highlight classic truck restoration, off-roading, modern F-150 assembly, and first-responder vehicles.
Ford has sponsored a History channel series, "Truck Weekend in America," with six hours of programming that celebrates truck culture.
The shows include six hour-long segments titled "Truck Night in America," focusing on off-road adventures; "Truck Hunters," dedicated to classic trucks; "Born Tough: Inside the Ford Factory;" "American Restoration: Truck Edition;" "Trucks Transformed: Custom Culture; " and "Rescue Trucks."
Ford says the series puts it "at the center of original storytelling," suggesting the content is a blend of self-promotional material and broad content appealing to the wider truck-enthusiast audience.
The series will begin Saturday, November 10, at 8 pm EST and finish Sunday night.
