The Ford Motor Company is one of the most successful and prestigious auto manufacturers in history. It’s also one of the most beloved car brands of all time. With top-notch reliability and vehicles that are capable of handling any job, it’s obvious why.

With Ford’s reputation for power, performance, and style, it’s no surprise that Ford is a popular vehicle choice among even the rich and famous. Below are eight celebrities whose love of Ford is no secret.

Tim Allen

Actor Tim Allen is best-known for his iconic role as Buzz Lightyear in Pixar’s Toy Story franchise and the classic sitcom Home Improvement, but did you know he’s also a Ford guy? 

It’s true. In Allen’s garage sits several high-performance Ford cars including a Shelby Cobra 289, the rare Ford RS200, and the very same 1933 Ford that was constantly on-screen during Home Improvement’s weekly episodes.

Sammy Hagar

The Red Rocker is famous for his affinity for speed. In fact, his 1984 hit song “I Can’t Drive 55” tells the story of a man who is addicted to the thrill of driving a high-performance vehicle at top speed. Considering that, it makes sense that Hagar admires Ford’s automotive ingenuity. 

His 1967 Shelby GT500 is perhaps his most famous ride, but he also owns the first-ever GCM-R Mustang (the first of only 100 custom-made by Gateway Classic), a 1967 427 Mustang Shelby, and the first remake of the Ford GT.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson 

As the renowned star of action movies like Rampage, Faster, and of course the beloved Fast & Furious franchise, it should come as no surprise that The Rock is a Ford lover.

The Rock has stated that he has owned and driven Ford trucks for years due to the roominess and comfort they provide (Johnson stands 6’ 5 and weighs over 250 pounds). He owns a custom-built Ford F-150 nicknamed “The Bull” that he frequently has delivered to many of the film sets he works on.

In fact, the Rock was named as an official Ford spokesperson in 2015 due to his unwavering commitment to the manufacturer. If you’re still not convinced, take a look at the former pro wrestler’s history of gift-giving. He’s gifted a brand new Ford F-150 to his uncle, former wrestler Haku, a Ford SUV to his father, and even a 2013 limited edition Ford Edge to his housekeeper.

Shaquille O’Neal

Another famous athlete who chooses Ford due to personal size limitations is former NBA basketball star Shaquille O’Neal. At an astounding 7’1, 325 pounds, Shaq needs space, and that’s why he drives Fords. 

Thanks to their many available modifications, O’Neal never has trouble getting behind the wheel of his many custom-built Ford vehicles. In 2011, Shaq acquired a custom Ford Mustang that was tailor-made to suit his height and personal taste.

Then in 2017, Shaq bought an enormous lifted Ford F-250, and later that year, he acquired an even bigger Ford F-650 that’s actually taller than he is, standing 7’5 above the pavement. 

George W. Bush

Former President George W. Bush own a Texas-sized ranch in McLennan County. As a result, Bush frequently buys all-american Ford trucks to carry him back and forth across the massive 1,583-acre property.

Bush has previously owned a 2009 Ford F-150 King Ranch Super Crew that went up for auction in 2017, and the vehicle’s proceeds went to a children’s charity. Additionally the former U.S. President has driven a 2013 Ford F-150 King Ranch pickup, a truck he once took for a spin alongside the next, and final, celebrity Ford enthusiast on our list

Jay Leno

You’d be hard-pressed to find a celebrity more well-known for their massive collection of cars than Jay Leno. Come on, the guy even has his own show about it! Perhaps not surprisingly, a large portion of his private stock is made up of Ford automobiles. 

The former late-night television host owns a huge number of rare and high-end Ford vehicles including, but not limited to, a 1965 Mustang Shelby GT350, 1966 7-liter Galaxie, 1989 Festiva SHOgun, Ford GT, and even a Ford Taurus Police Interceptor.

It’s obvious Leno is a Ford fanatic, and you could be too if you head to Sloan Ford today to check out all the incredible Ford vehicles we have available to purchase right now!
