Ford VIN Number Structure

Ford VIN Structure

Ford VIN numbers are broken down to 9 sections:

  • 1-3rd character - Manufacturer Identifier
  • 4th character - Restraint System
  • 5-7th character - Make/Model/Series/Body Type
  • 8th character - Engine
  • 9th character - Check Digit
  • 10th character - Model Year
  • 11th character - Assembly Plant
  • 12-17th character - Sequential Production Numbers

We also have a list of Ford's squish VIN information available in the table below. A squish vin is basically the first 11 characters of the full VIN Number. However, it does not contain the 9th character, which is a check digit to check the validity of a VIN number. With squish VIN, you can manually decode your Ford's VIN with just pen and paper.

About Ford

Ford Motor Company is an American multinational automaker that has its main headquarters in Dearborn, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit. Henry Ford founded and incorporated it on June 16, 1903. The company sells automobiles and commercial vehicles under the Ford brand and most luxury cars under the Lincoln brand. Ford also owns Brazilian SUV manufacturer Troller, an 8% stake in Aston Martin of the United Kingdom and a 32% stake in Jiangling Motors. It also has joint-ventures in China (Changan Ford), Taiwan (Ford Lio Ho), Thailand (AutoAlliance Thailand), Turkey (Ford Otosan), and Russia (Ford Sollers). The company is listed on the New York Stock Exchange and is controlled by the Ford family; they have minority ownership, but the majority of the voting power.

Toyota and Ford worked together in 2004 to share Toyota’s hybrid technology patent. In exchange, Toyota licensed several patents from Ford as well. That same year, Ford released the Escape Hybrid vehicle. This made them the third to have a hybrid electric model, but it was the first hybrid SUV on the market. It also ran on flexible fuel so that E85 could be used. Its companion, the hybrid Mercury Mariner also became available in 2006.

While Ford continues to sit at the top of the rankings for most popular brands, it doesn’t mean they are reliable vehicles. In the 2018 J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability Study, Ford continues to rank right near the middle of all automakers. Even Your Mechanic lists them in the middle of the rankings related to cost of maintenance. They estimate the Ford brand at $9,100 worth of maintenance costs over a 10-year period.
