Since the Ford F-150 was all new for the 2015 model year, there are only a few changes from that year to 2016. One of those changes involves an all-new trim level, called Limited. Basically, a Limited is a fully-loaded Platinum model without having to check all the option boxes. We recently had a chance to spend a little time behind the wheel, and here’s what we thought.
A fully-loaded F-150 is a pretty nice place to be, and the Limited doesn’t disappoint. High-quality leather is used everywhere, and really feels like it belongs in a $60,000+ truck. You also get all of the options, so every tech toy imaginable is on tap, along with everything you need to get work done.
As part of the trailering package, you get Ford’s Pro Trailer Backup Assist. This technology helps automate and make easier the task of backing up a trailer, and will be a boon for those who aren’t the best trailer people in the world. For those who are already pros, just don’t use the system.
Also, since this was a 2016 model, it includes Ford’s SYNC 3 infotainment system. SYNC 3 features some big improvements over MyFord Touch, including a much faster response time and 3rd-party app support. While we never thought MyFord Touch was all that bad of a system, SYNC 3 is a big improvement.
When it comes to driving, it’s just like the other Ford F-150s we’ve driven. That means we liked the experience and feel the change to aluminum was a good move for Ford’s best-selling vehicle.
Stay tuned as we will surely have a 2016 Limited in for review sometime in the coming months. Until then, check out the photos from our first drive below, or check out Ford’s own Limited photo gallery by clicking here.
