Ford's impressive F150
The Ford F-150, part of Ford’s F-Series, America’s best-selling truck for 38 years, continues to innovate in 2016. With a starting MSRP of $26,540, the 2016 F150 is available in six trims (XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum and Limited) and four engines.
New for 2016
The Special Edition Appearance Packages for XLT and Lariat further personalize F-150 to customer tastes, adding all-new unique 20-inch premium anodized dark-painted aluminum wheels with red sport lettering, unique bodyside graphics and badging, special edition upholstery with Alcantara inserts, red contrast stitching, and much more. This package also features a dark anodized grille with black mesh on XLT, while the Lariat dark anodized grille receives red accents.
Our press vehicle for the week was the top of the line F150 Limited. With a starting MSRP of $58,885, the F150 Limited is simultaneously rugged and luxurious. Dressed in a black interior with Mojave leather and genuine wood accents, the F150 Limited is impressive — and comfortable. Rear seat legroom is listed at 43.6-inches, rear shoulder room is 65.9-inches and rear hip room is 64.7-inches.
Other highlights include a dual-zone electronic automatic temperature control, Sony AM/FM Stereo with single CD and HD radio, SIRIUS XM Satellite radio, optional all-weather floor mats, 22-inch polished aluminum wheels and much more.
Additionally, the F150 Limited is available in four exterior colors, including hues such as Blue Jeans and White Platinum (adds $595).
