Get ready for some luxury trucking. Ford is introducing its new 2016 F-150 Limited Edition. With exclusive goodies inside and out, the automaker says it’s going to be the most luxurious F-150 ever, a truck as at home hauling a load or heading to a star-studded gala.
“The F-150 Limited sets a new bar for what discerning customers should expect in a high-end truck. We’re adding segment-exclusive technology, and features that improve productivity, convenience and capability with distinctive style,” says Raj Nair, Ford group vice president, Global Product Development.
Ford says that the new 2016 Limited model is designed to appeal to drivers looking for innovation and luxury in a truck designed to stand out. It accomplishes this beginning at the tip of the hood with raised “Limited” lettering.
The Limited exterior design continues with 22-inch aluminum wheels, a unique grill design, and a chrome badge on the tailgate. Shine is added to this with a chrome front bumper that is tied to the rear body-colored bumper with bright belt moldings. To round off the look are satin-chrome door handles and a chrome exhaust tip.
Inside the luxury continues with contoured Mojave Limited badged leather seats that heat and cool. The center console gets a special VIN plate with the production number and a unique instrument cluster. There are unique floor mats, genuine fiddleback eucalyptus, aluminum accents, and scuff plates with ice blue back lighting as well.
The Limited packs plenty of technology perks for everyday convenience. It comes standard with Blis cross-traffic alert, a moonroof, a Sony 10-speaker audio system, power-deployable running boards, remote start and tailgate release, and an integrated trailer brake control. For drivers who want it all, a technology package is also offered to add on the goodies of a 360-degree camera and dynamic trailer hitch assist. Ford’s Trailer Backup Assist is also available.
The Limited is more than just luxury flash, it also packs the heat to get the work done. Under the emblazoned hood it gets the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine that allows drivers to tow up to 10,000 pounds. This engine produces 365 horsepower with 420 lb-ft of torque and gets an estimated fuel economy of 17 mpg city and 24 mpg highway.
Pricing will be announced later this summer. It is expected to cost around $60,000 to $70,000 depending on the options added.
The Limited F-150 will be available this winter with the 2016 models.
