It will not come as a surprise if we say that the New Ford F-150 Limited answers the expectations of all truck-lovers. Their demands and needs for a powerful-looking and powerful-being truck has been acknowledged by the American automaker and now there is this final piece of majesty and art. The new top-of-the-line Ford adds up tougher, rougher and other "er" characters to the F-150 model lineup, thus building a proper image of what a high-end truck should look like.
The 2016 F-150 Limited stuns with an advanced and more fuel-efficient 3.5-liter EcoBoost® V6. The engine breathes out 365 HP and 420 lb.-ft. of torque. It has an EPA-estimated fuel economy rating of 17 mpg city, 24 mpg highway and 20 mpg combined. Additionally, the powertrain is matched with an electronic six-speed automatic transmission that offers tow/haul and sport modes featuring SelectShift® with progressive range select. On top of this, all four-wheel-drive models are fitted with two-speed automatic four-wheel drive that automatically changes between two-wheel and four-wheel drive. The shift depends on the driving surface traction conditions of course.
In terms of the outside look of the F-150 Limited, it has undergone some refinements which include impressive 22-inch polished aluminum wheels, raised dimensional LIMITED lettering on the hood, one-of-a-kind grille and satin-finished chrome badge on the tailgate. What is more, there are body-color end caps featuring on the chrome front bumper. Other tweaks which accentuate the exterior are represented by the satin-chrome door handles and chrome exhaust tip. Customers can choose from several colors - Shadow Black, Magnetic, Blue Jeans and White Platinum Metallic tri-coat.
The interior is equipped with cooled black and Mojave leather front seats that have Limited badging and showcase splendid design. A 10-way power adjustment and exclusive multicontour massaging are included as well. Passengers can enjoy heated rear seats and SYNC® 3 with AppLink™. Furthermore, Ford F-150 Limited is characterized by capacitive touch screan, a Sony® 10-speaker sound system with HD Radio™, subwoofer and single CD player with a five-year subscription to SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link to complete the package.
2016 Ford F-150 Limited will be available for purchase this winter.
