If you were wanting a new 2016 Ford F-150 but thinking it’s just not expensive enough, Ford has solved your quandary with the new top-line Limited model.

The new Limited goes beyond Platinum, pushing the F-150 trim level envelope to a new high. Why another trim grade when King Ranch and Platinum already have so much? Ford would tell you it’s more about design and theme than just more stuff.

The 2016 Ford F-150 Limited gets its own 22-inch polished aluminum wheels for starters. But look at the hood, which has huge LIMITED lettering all the way across.

There’s also a special grille design and applique across the tailgate along with satin-chrome door handles.

It will come fully loaded of course with all the stuff which is optional on lower trims. These include exterior duds like chrome tow hooks on 4×4, power running boards, and LED headlights.

The interior is lit by a panoramic glass roof, and there’s functional features like blind-spot warning with cross-traffic alert, remote start, and integrated trailer brake controller.

Special black and tan leather seats are heated and cooled up front with 10-way power adjustment. Rear seats are heated too.

Techies or just those who want to tune the station on their radio easily will appreciate the roll-out of the new SYNC 3 communications and entertainment system.

It has improved voice recognition, higher speed performance, and a better capacitive touch screen than the old MyFord Touch.

Under the hood comes standard the 3.5-liter EcoBoost twin-turbo V6 with 365 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque. This gives a towing capacity of 10,100 pounds and a possible highway mpg of 24, not when towing of course.

Available colors include Shadow Black, Magnetic, Blue Jeans and White Platinum Metallic tri-coat when it arrives early in 2016. Pricing will be a lot, and announced closer to launch.
