Ford has added a new trim to its best-seller pickup truck, the F-150. Badged the ‘F-150 Limited’, the American automaker defines it as the most “advanced” and “luxurious” model of the car to have been ever produced.
“The F-150 Limited sets a new bar for what discerning customers should expect in a high-end truck,” said Raj Nair, the Vice President of Global Product Development at Ford Group.
“We’re adding segment-exclusive technology, and features that improve productivity, convenience and capability with distinctive style.”

The car will be available in four paint options: Shadow Black, Magnetic, Blue Jeans and White Platinum Metallic tri-coat.
Moving on, the interior of the car sports more modern instruments with Mojave premium leather upholstery. Customers also get a panoramic vista roof, with the BLIS cross-traffic alert system, SYNC AppLink software and cruise control. A 360-degree camera, trailer hitch assist system and Pro Trailer Backup Assist system are available with the technology pack.
Meanwhile, the F-150 Limited will be powered a 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost engine, that produces 365 hp and 569 Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox with choice for RWD and 4WD layouts.
