2016 Ford F-150 Gets New Special Edition Appearance Packages

Ford has released details about the 2016 F-150 pickup truck, which gains some new features for the new model year.

America’s best-selling truck for 38 years is now available with new Special Edition Appearance Packages, SYNC 3, all-new Pro Trailer Backup Assist and alternative fuel capability.

Available for XLT and Lariat trim levels, the Special Edition Packages enhance the F-150’s appearance to suit customer tastes via new design accessories. These include all-new unique 20-inch premium anodized dark-painted aluminum wheels with red sport lettering, black running boards, smoked headlamps and unique body side graphics and badging. XLT models get a dark anodized grille with black mesh, while the Lariat’s dark anodized grille features red accents.

Inside, the models get special edition seats with Alcantara inserts, red contrast stitching and red bolsters, as well as unique red stitching on the steering wheel, transmission gear selector boot and instrument panel.

Besides the styling upgrades, the 2016 Ford F-150 pickup is available with SYNC 3, Ford’s newest infotainment system that promises enhanced voice recognition, high-speed performance and capacitive touch screen, as well as easier-to-understand graphical interface.

The truck is also offered with the all-new Pro Trailer Backup Assist system, which makes it easier for drivers to back a trailer up. The technology allows customers to steer a trailer instinctively by turning a knob left or right to indicate direction, while the truck controls its steering and limits vehicle speed using advanced camera technology.

Finally, the 2016 Ford F-150 with the 5.0-liter V8 engine will offer a gaseous-fuel prep option, allowing it to run on compressed natural gas or propane.

    The truck is awesome. Though the stickers and seat trim are kinda trashy looking.
