Ford is now offering a factory-fitted strobe warning LED light kit across the entire 2016 F-150 range.
Already available on the 2016 F-Series Super Duty, the LED strobe lights can now be ordered for the first time ever on the F-150. Ford points out these are recommended for utility, road construction and municipal crews while working on-site and should not be used during normal road driving. The new kit significantly enhances visibility thanks to the low-power, light-emitting diodes that are weather resistant and should prove to be durable as well.
Adapted specifically for the F-150, the front and rear amber lens strobe lights are visible from up to 1,000 feet during the day and up to a mile at night. To guarantee maximum visibility, there are forward-facing signals installed up high at the rear edge of the hood, while the rear-facing signals sit on either side of the center high-mounted stop lamp. Ford is giving buyers the possibility to program the flash pattern in a variety of ways to better match the on-site requirements.
You can have the LED light kit as factory-fitted equipment which means that on delivery day the pickup truck will have the system installed. Ford is offering a three-year / 36,000-mile limited warranty for the LED strobe lights which can be serviced at one of the company’s 3,000+ dealerships across the United States.
