News Ford Trademarks the Term Skyline

Ford Trademarks the Term Skyline

For the moment, there are no indications as to what Ford vehicle may wear the “Skyline” name


  • The name was trademarked as “Motor land vehicles, namely, SUVs, trucks, and automobiles.”

  • Ford’s had the word “sky” in a few models or trim names in the past.

  • “Skyline” is best known as a Nissan vehicle.


The best part about a story such as this one is the amount of guilt-free speculation that can be done. Ford trademarked the “Skyline” name early last week with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The name falls under “Motor land vehicles, namely, SUVs, trucks and automobiles” leaving much to the imagination.

In the past, Ford has used the moniker “Skyliner” for the drop-top version of Fairlane and Galaxie, as well as the clear roof on the Crestline. An aftermarket company also briefly converted the Ranger in the 1990s into a convertible and was called the “Skyranger.” There was also a Ford Transit Skyliner concept back in the mid-2010s as recalled by Ford Authority.

For now, however, there’s no indication as to what Ford will do with a name more famously associated with Nissan. We want to think that it will indicate a drop-top or glass roof iteration of one of their upcoming electric SUVs or trucks. Or, a convertible Maverick perhaps?
