Chrome grille, satin chrome door handles, panoramic moonroof, LED headlights, polished leather interior and massaging seats. No I’m not describing the latest Lexus, or Cadillac, I’m describing the new 2016 Ford F-150 Limited. Luxury no longer means a low to the ground sports car. You can easily ride in style and be the king of the road all at the same time in this new F-150.
For so long the pickup truck has been seen as a work vehicle and simply that. The pickup was seen as a means to move material from point A to point B. All this changed when trucks began to have back seats and four doors. The pickup is no longer being used only as a work truck, but as a main vehicle for families and much more. The next natural step was to create a fully functioning luxury model pickup and Ford has done just that.
There’s a reason the F-150 is the best selling truck in America. Ford listens to their customers and delivers. On top of all the luxury and amenities, the 16 Limited will also be a fully functioning work and recreation vehicle. The new 2016 Limited will be equipped with the new Pro-Trailer back up assist which we covered in detail recently. The truck will also be equipped with Ford’s new Sync 3 which we covered in detail in an early blog as well. Not only can you take a trip with your buddies to the lake and haul your boat, but have your back massaged the entire way. Oh and did we mention the 360 degree camera? Let’s see a BMW or Cadillac do that for you!
The inside of the 2016 Limited will resemble a lounge more than the interior of a truck (Hey can you take your shoes off before getting in my F-150? Thanks.). We’ve already described the heated/cooled leather massaging seats, but the F-150 will also have a massive display for the new Sync 3 and a 10 speaker Sony audio system to blare your favorite Sirius XM station or Spotify playlist. Couple this technology with a laser-engraved VIN plate on the center console lid, unique floor mats and instrument cluster, and you’ve got an interior that has more in common with a jet fighter or a spaceship than an F-150. You may not want to leave this truck once you step inside.
The 16 Limited will be equipped with the Turbocharged 3.5L Ecoboost Engine and will be available starting this winter. There is no official MSRP as of yet. For additional information visit www.ford.com, or visit our dealership for details.
