Postwar models 1940 - 1960s
1947 Model M
In 1947 John Deere opened a new tractor factory in Dubuque, Iowa, built to produce The John Deere Model M. The M was created to address the increasing demand for small tractors and to compete with the increasingly popular Ford and Ferguson Tractors. It was the first Deere tractor to use a vertical 2-cylinder engine, with a square bore and stroke of 4.0 x 4.0 inches. a Crawler tractor version was built from 1949 by Lindeman for vineyard use.
After years of testing John Deere released its first proper diesel tractor in 1949. The John Deere Model R was also the first Deere tractor with a live independent PTO with its own clutch. At 55hp, it was the most fuel efficient tractor at the time. resulting in over 21,000 being built. The Model R had a shipping weight of 7670lb.

The New Generation of Power - '60s-'70s era
After making more than 1 1/4 million Two-cylinder tractors, John Deere switched to four- and six-cylinder engines. Announcement of the change came after seven years of development and forty million dollars in retooling. "The New Generation of Power" heralded a major design shift in which very few parts from former production were retained. The eight-speed Synchro-Range debuted along with integral wet brakes. While traditionalists bemoaned the ending of two-cylinder machine production, the 4010 would go on to become "the most copied tractor in history". These are the 10 and 20 series machines, along with the 4000 (a 20-series variant), and 6030. The 20 series would see significant improvements, leading the 4020 to become one of the most popular tractors ever.
In 1959 the company showed in Marshalltown, Iowa, USA a big 150hp 4WD called the 8010. To introduce the new tractors to all of its dealers in a single day, the company chartered planes to fly more than 5,000 to Dallas, Texas, on Aug. 30, 1960. The day marked the official release of a line of farm tractors that would soon evolve into the standard all other farm tractors would be measured by.
1960 saw the original New Generation 10 series tractors with the 1010, 2010, 3010 and 4010 introduced. These were followed by the model 5010 standard introduced in 1962. The 5010 was the first two-wheel drive to be over 100 hp at the PTO and drawbar. This tractor was never available as a row crop model. In 1963 the 3010 and the 4010 were replaced by the 3020 and the 4020. 1965 brought the 5020 Standard, which was the industry's most powerful two-wheel drive model, along with the 1020, 2020 and the 54hp Model 2510. By 1966 Sales of the 4020 accounted for 48% of all John Deere tractor sales. Also that year the row crop version of the 5020 was introduced, and John Deere pioneered the Roll-Gard protection frame to protect the farmer from tractor-overturn injury.
In 1968 seven new models appeared: the 820, 1020, 2520, 4000, 4520, WA-14, and WA-17. 1970 saw introduction of the 4620 and the 7020 four-wheel drive, and in 1971 the 6030 and 7520, both of which used the 531 c.i., 175 hp. intercooled turbo, giving the 2-wd 6030 more power than any of the upcoming Generation II machines to be introduced in the next year. Instead of being "logically" named "6020", it received the "30" series designation because it was to sell alongside the upcoming Generation II 30-series machines on into the mid-70s. Deere debuted turbocharging in 1968 with its addition to the 5020, along with intro of the 4520, and a pair of 4-wheel drives called the WA-14 and the WA-17, which led to the introduction of the 7020 and 7520. The 3020 and the 4020 were updated with new features, and the 5020 model had a power increase to a then-industry leading 141hp.

- In late 1976 a new 80hp addition as the 2840.
- 1977 saw the "Seven in 77" plan with the result being:- The companies first compact diesels were introduced in the 22hp 850 and 27hp 950. Other than that the big news was what John Deere called "The New Iron Horses" with more horses and more iron. These were the 90hp 4040, 110hp 4240, 130hp 4440, 156hp 4640 and the 180hp 4840.
- 1978 brought the 215hp 8440 and the 275hp 8640.

These five new models had a black stripe on both sides of the tractor near the front with the top of the hood being flatter then their predecessors.
Also in 1979, Industrias John Deere Argentina S.A. made the 3440 for export to south american countries like Venezuela and european countries like Germany, Spain and Romania, so, never sold in Argentina.
John Deere introduced at least 38 new tractors during the 1980s during a time when at least 3 other competitors merged, were sold or went out of business altogether:
- Two new small compact diesel tractors were added in 1981. These were the 14.5hp 650 and 18hp 750. Three new 4WDs came to market in the fall of 1981. These were the 225hp 8450, 290hp 8650 and the big 370hp 8850. The 8850 came with the company's biggest engine, the 955 cubic inch V-8.
- The 2040 was replaced by the 2040S and built in Germany.
- Besides the 8850 the JD844 wheel loader and the 990 hydraulic excavator were the only other John Deere products to get this V-8. Also according to Wayne Broehl's 1984 book, about the John Deere's Company, a larger 4WD tractor than the 8850 was supposed to appear but never did.
- In 1982 11 new 50 series tractors from 40 up to 192.99hp. The 40hp 1250, 25hp 2150, 55hp 2350, 65hp 2550, 75hp 2750, 85hp 2950, 100hp 4050, 120hp 4250, 140hp 4450, 165hp 4650 and the 192.99hp 4850. From the 2150 to the 4850 got another industry leading innovation in the use of Castor Action mechanical front wheel drive which provided 20 percent more pulling power. Like the front tires of a motor grader this Castor/Action MFWD had the front tires lean to give greater turning radius. When tested in Nebraska the 4850 was the most fuel efficient tractor ever tested over 60hp.
- The following year 1983 brought in the final two 50 Series tractors namely the 50hp 1450 and the 60hp 1650. A 4020 shadow namely the 95hp 3150 came about in 1985. This was the first John Deere row-crop tractor to have MFWD as standard equipment.
- Three new diesel compacts came to light in 1986. These were the 16hp 655, 20hp 755, 24hp 855 and the 900 HC. The 900 HC was offset like the 2-cylinder M and was for niche markets. The 655,755 and the 855 all had a hydrostatic drive transmission. The 2355, 2555, 2755 and the 2955 were featured as price fighter (Economy) tractors in 1986 with less features.
- The following year 1987 John Deere brought out six new models in the 45hp 2155, 55hp 2355, 65hp 2555, 75hp 2755, 85hp 2955 and the 96hp 3155.

- This year also brought the 70 Series gear driven compact diesels. These were the 18hp 670, 24hp 770, 28hp 870, 33hp 970 and the 38hp 1070.
The 1990s & Generation 3
In some industry watchers were calling Generation 3 the year 1991 brought a glimpse of the 1990s would be like in John Deere tractors. Eight new tractors were introduced in 1991 starting with the three 5000 Series tractors. These were the 40hp 5200, 50hp 5300 and the 60hp 5400. A new model the 92hp 3055 and 100hp 3255 followed.
But what the company called "Fined Tuned Perfection" otherwise know as the 60 Series tractors. These were the 156hp 4560, 177hp 4760 and the 202hp 4960.

These tractor were equipped with an electronic power bulge that would kick in when tough field conditions were encountered. Later in the summer the 3055 and the 3255 were replaced with the 92hp 7200 and the 100hp 7400.
1994 was one of those red letter years in tractor development for John Deere because that year brought about the most revolutionary row crop tractors the industry had seen up to then.
- The new 8000 Series tractors were introduced with state-of-the-art 21st Century features. The 160hp 8100, 180hp 8200, 200hp 8300 and 225hp 8400. These four 8000 Series tractors were so far ahead that it would be another four years until a competitor had tractors that were similar to them. One lone utility tractor, the 73hp 5500, was added in the fall of 1995.
TEN Series Upgrades
1996 saw 13 new tractors debuted at a big dealer meeting in New Mexico.

- The 70 Series tractors were replaced by the four 9000 Series tractors at 260, 310, 360 and 425hp. These were the 9100, 9200, 9300 and the 9400.
- 1997 brought seven new tractors, three in the Advantage Series and four in the 5000 TEN series models. The three advantage models were the 85hp 6405, 95hp 6605 and the 105hp 7405. The 45hp 5210, 55hp 5310, 65hp 5410 and the 75hp 5510 represent the 5000 TEN tractors.
- The spring of 1998 revealed the four 6000 TEN tractors. These were the 65hp 6110, 72hp 6210, 80hp 6310 and the 90hp 6410. Another new addition to the long green line in 1998 was the six 4000 Series compact diesel tractors. These were the 20hp 4100, 21.5hp 4200, 32hp 4300, 36hp 4400, 39hp 4500, and the 43hp [[John Deere 4600|4600]. A Advantage Series 27hp 790 compact diesel tractor was added to round things out.
T Tracked Versions
During the fall of 1998 John Deere had a 360hp prototype 9300T track tractor at it least three farm shows. During August of 1999 the company had another dealer meeting in Moline, Illinois. It was here that the 360hp 9300T and the 425hp 9400T were revealed to their dealers. A 115hp 7510 that came with full four wheel drive was added. As a result the 7610 was kicked up to the 120hp and the 7710 up to 135hp.

Power ratings / model numbers
The from the 2008 model range on the Engine horsepower will now be advertised in metric (ISO) per the International Organization for Standardization 97/68/EC standard for determining bare engine horsepower at rated engine power in the Model name.
- The First digit will determine size,
- The next Three will determine engine horsepower,
- A new letter will be added (currently D, E, or M) to determine spec lever.
- M being a high spec machine (like the Premium series in the 6000 and 7000 series) the
- E to denote a mid spec and
- D to denote the Advantage series (like the 03 and 05 series in the 6000 and 5000 respectively).
For example, the new 3032E Tractor will be a 3000 with 32 HP on engine. The E is midspec. This tractor represents the 2007 year 3203 for its spec, not to be mistaken for the 3320 which has the same HP but more features more money. Over the next few years all Tractors will get this scheme.
