Coming off a major redesign in 2009 and a complete powertrain overhaul in 2011, the 2013 Ford F-150 continues the evolution of Ford's award-winning pickup truck with more significant updates including styling and cabin technology. The new 2013 Ford F-150 comes just months after the 2013 Ford F-Series Super Duty was unveiled with similar updates making the 2013 model year incredibly important for the best-selling truck AND new vehicle in the United States.
The biggest news for the new F-150 is that the truck will now offer the MyFord Touch infotainment system. Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum and the all-new Limited trim levels will come standard with MyFord Touch, and the system has been upgraded for truck duty in that the touch screen can be operated by users wearing work gloves which should really come in handy (pun intended). For vehicles not equipped with MyFord Touch, a smaller 4.2-inch LCD screen displaying audio and HVAC information, and speaking of these two systems, the rest of the center stack has been redesigned with a more attractive layout and easier to use controls including larger knobs and buttons for audio and HVAC systems. The 2013 Ford F-150 FX Appearance Package gives this sporty option even more equipment with all-new Alcantara seat insterts.
