2013 sees only minor changes to the F-150 lineup. A new grille is the most obvious external change. New HID headlights are much more powerful than the units they replace. SVT Raptor models get "beadlock" wheels for 2013, providing extra insurance that the tires will stay stuck to the rims during serious off-roading. A new trim level has also been released in 2013, the F-150 Limited. The Limited features heated and cooled leather seats, subtle ambient lighting, a standard moonroof, aluminum trim, an 8-inch screen with rear backup monitor and 22-inch polished aluminum wheels. The F-150 Limited is powered by Ford's 3.5L "EcoBoost" V6.
Powerful and efficient powertrain lineup; class-leading towing and payload capacities; wide range of models for all budgets, tastes and needs; available luxury features
Ford claims class-leading fuel economy, as well as best-in-class towing and horsepower for both its base V6 engine as well as both of the available V8s. Ford also says that it's the only automaker to offer a 6-speed automatic transmission across its entire model lineup. The F-150 also offers electric power steering, which saves fuel and gives an improved steering feel. Across the lineup, the F-150 carries through with the full redesign that the truck received for 2009; since then, the F-150's very purposeful, upright instrument panel and vastly upgraded interior materials have stood out in this very competitive class.
