2016 Ford F-150 gets new Limited model.
The increasingly competitive pickup sector is challenged by a new addition from Ford. America’s most popular pickup maker introduced its most advanced and luxurious truck ever – the Ford F-150 Limited.
The new Limited expands the F-150 model lineup with more standard technology and driver convenience features. The new car offers SYNC 3 with AppLink, and class-exclusive features such as a 360-degree camera system, adaptive cruise control, active park assist, quad-beam LED headlamps, remote tailgate release and multicontour massaging front seats.
“The F-150 Limited sets a new bar for what discerning customers should expect in a high-end truck,” said Raj Nair, Ford group vice president, Global Product Development. “We’re adding segment-exclusive technology, and features that improve productivity, convenience and capability with distinctive style.”
The 2016 F-150 Limited is powered by the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6, which allows for towing of up to 10,100 pounds when properly equipped. This advanced powertrain produces 365 horsepower and 420 lb.-ft. of torque – the latter unsurpassed by any truck with a comparable engine in its class1 – and has an EPA-estimated fuel economy rating of 17 mpg city, 24 mpg highway and 20 mpg combined.
The interior is further differentiated from other F-150 models with a laser-engraved VIN plate on the center console lid including production number. Unique front and rear floor mats, unique instrument cluster face, genuine fiddle back eucalyptus, and aluminum interior accents and unique scuff plates with ice blue backlighting further distinguish the Limited model.
All-new, segment1-first Pro Trailer Backup Assist is available that makes it easier for drivers of all skill levels to back a trailer up to launch a boat or park in a driveway. The technology allows customers to steer a trailer instinctively by turning a knob left or right to indicate direction; the truck controls its steering and limits vehicle speed.
