Ford F-150 Limited boasts Raptor power with class

Ford F-150 Limited boasts Raptor power with class news

Range-topping F-150 is for those who want the power without the looks

Ford has added a new range-topping variant of its Ford F-150 pick-up line-up that packs not only all the bells and whistles, but more importantly the 335kW/691Nm 3.5-litre EcoBoost V6 from the F-150 Raptor.

Called the F-150 Limited, Ford says the new variant is aimed at “fans who love Raptor power but want a more upscale package”.

On the outside, the Limited does away with the Raptor’s dominating front grille and blackened out wheel arches for a more contrived and demure look. Instead, the Limited sports a unique satin-finish grille and tailgate applique, satin-finished window trim and door hands, polished aluminium 22-inch wheels, and power-deployable running boards.

The upscale trim continues on the inside with the fitment of two-tone leather upholstery, massaging heated and cooled front seats, a heated steering wheel, leather-topped instrument panel and door panels, ash swirl wood trim, and a suede headliner with a twin-panel moonroof. 

Worthy Watch: F-150 Raptor review

To lend that touch of exclusivity, each Limited will sport a laser-etched plaque on the centre console armrest with its serial number.

On the features front, the F-150 Limited is fitted with useful features for those who plan to do a lot of towing such as an integrated trailer brake controller, 360-degree camera with split-view and dynamic hitch assist, and Pro-Trailer Backup Assist.

That being said, infusion of Raptor power aside, the F-150 Limited won’t be an upscale Baja-attacking Raptor as it will do without the Raptor’s Fox Racing shocks. There is also no mention of the Raptor's Baja drive mode.
