Ford Adds Higher-End Limited Trim to 2016 F-150
When it comes to buying pickup trucks, people vote what they want with their wallets. With the new Ford F-150, people are voting in large numbers for more features and luxuries. For 2016, they are taking the luxury trims one step further by adding the Limited trim. While we don’t have official pricing, it’ll be the most expensive, feature-packed, and luxurious F-150 ever.
So what makes a Limited a Limited? Mainly, standard features. If you take the 2015 F-150 Platinum we recently had in for review, there were still a decent number of options that you could add to the truck. The 2016 Limited will have many of those as standard features.
Additionally, the Limited model will have Ford’s Sync 3 infotainment system and Pro Trailer Backup Assist.
The new truck will have exclusive 22″ polished aluminum wheels, LIMITED raised lettering on the hood, satin chrome door handles, satin chrome badging on the tailgate, and more unique chrome accenting.
Inside, the Limited is separated from lesser F-150s by a laser-engraved VIN and production number on the center console. There’s also genuine fiddleback eucalyptus and aluminum interior accents throughout. Even though we thought the Platinum was a nice place to sit, it appears the Limited is going to take that to the next level.
According to Automotive News, so far this year 60% of F-150s sold have been Lariat, King Ranch, or Platinum trim levels. For those unaware, that’s the luxury trim levels. It makes sense for Ford to cater this and offer even more high-end options.
Pricing isn’t currently available, but Automotive News estimates it’ll start around $60,000 and top out at around $70,000.
