Play Ball: Ford Releases MLB-Inspired 2016 F-150 MVP Edition

Ford F-150 MVP Edition 5

To mark the two times the Kansas City Royals have won the World Series, Ford has released special edition trucks. In 1985, the Blue Oval commemorated the Royals’ first title with the 1986 Ford Ranger MVP edition. To honor the team’s 2015 championship (and an idea from a diehard Royals fan), it’s releasing a limited number of 2016 F-150 MVP edition trucks. Ford’s promoting this newest special edition with the help of two stars from the Royals’ 1985 and 2015 winning teams: Bret Saberhagen and Salvador Pérez, respectively.

Each pickup will start its life at Ford’s Kansas City Assembly Plant as an F-150 XLT in either Oxford White or Blue Flame with the chrome package. Employees then add MVP badges, special polished stainless rocker panels, and a spray-in bedliner.

Only 300 2016 Ford F-150 MVP edition trucks will leave the Kansas City factory; they’re being sold at Ford dealerships in the KC area.
