2013 Ford F-150 Gets Facelift to Celebrate 65th Anniversary

Ford Motor Company celebrates introduction of the new 2013 Ford F-150 with the agricultural professionals and leaders of tomorrow

More than a hundred of Texas’ top Future Farmer’s of America student leaders gathered inside a small Waco retreat center building along with automotive journalists from around the country to get the first peek of the new Ford F-150.

When the wraps were lifted a round of applause went up, nt only in appreciation for the 65th year the F-Series has been on the market, but also for Ford’s 65-year relationship with the FFA.

“Farm families have always represented an important F-Series truck constituency,” said Doug Scott, Ford Truck group marketing manager and FFA sponsor board member.

As for the 2013 F-150, it’s business as usual.

“Like our hardworking customers, Ford is committed to getting the job done right with our industry-leading trucks,” said Mark Fields, Ford president of The Americas. “The 2013 F-150 demonstrates our commitment to continuously improving our trucks with new features and capabilities, allowing F-Series owners to be increasingly productive.”

For 2013, the Ford F-150 receives new front-end design and advanced technologies such as MyFord Touch® with voice-activated driver controls and available high-intensity discharge (HID) headlamps.

2013 Ford F-150 offers true HID headlights--and industry first in pickups.

F-150 style also is enhanced with new 18- and 20-inch wheels offered in various trim packages.

Segment-exclusive power-telescoping and power-folding trailer-tow sideview mirrors add flexibility and convenience when operating in tight quarters, while enabling class-leading visibility.

F-150 pickups are available in three new hues including Blue Jeans Metallic, Kodiak Brown Metallic and Ruby Red Clearcoat Metallic.
