Ford Needs a Retro Truck Styling Package

Ford Truck Retro Package

Combine modern convenience with timeless classic style, and you’ve got the makings of a perfect truck!

It’s no secret that today’s Ford trucks are the most capable and reliable vehicles on the planet. Combine world-class towing and hauling capability with solid fuel economy, top-notch safety, and luxurious comfort, and you’ve truly got the total package. But as much as we love our new Ford trucks, we also miss the good old days of vintage style.

So, when Ford North America Product Communications Manager Mike Levine tweeted out this image, we immediately became obsessed. Obsessed with the idea of Ford offering up some sort of retro styling package on its new trucks. Call us crazy, but this Super Duty is proof that such an idea could work. More specifically, it’s proof that combining old school styling cues with a modern truck actually results in a desirable product.

Need further proof? Well, a certain Chevrolet dealer in Wells, Minnesota, actually decided to do the same thing with a used Silverado. After posting a few pictures of the throwback styling treatment, the truck blew up on social media. To the point where that dealer is now offering the package to all comers, whether they donate their own truck or buy one already built!
