Ford F-150 Gets Factory-Installed LED Strobe Warning Lights [w/Video]

Ford is making strobe warning LED light kit available to F-150 fleet customers, as long as they promise to only use them on or near a work site.

The purpose of the strobe light kit is 100% utilitarian, meant for road construction and municipal crews that need better visibility, as well as for warning motorists that workers might be present in the nearby area.

The light kit is available for all 2016 F-150 models, having previously been offered only on the F-Series Super Duty. It consists of weather-resistant durable low-power LEDs and according to Ford, it’s specifically designed to “work with the F-150’s high-strength, military-grade, aluminum-alloy body.”

In terms of visibility, both the frond and the rear-mounted strobe lights can be seen from as far as 1,000 feet (304 meters) during the day and up to one mile (1.6 km) at night. While the forward-facing signals are mounted up high at the rear edge of the hood (for maximum visibility), the rear-facing signals go on either side of the center high-mounted stop lamp, providing up to 180 degrees of illumination. Customers can also program the flash pattern to meet their specific fleet requirements.

“Ford designed the first-ever factory-installed LED warning light kit based on fleet customer input,” explained Kent Bock, Ford’s commercial accessory exec. “Because it comes directly from Ford, customers can trust that this light kit is Built Ford Tough. Ordering is as easy as checking a box, and the truck is delivered to your dealer with the system installed.”

In order to complete a purchase, customers are required to provide a fleet identification number. Once bought, the strobe lights can be serviced at any of the 3,000 + Ford dealerships nationwide in the US.
