    2016 Ford F-150 Gets New Special Edition



    In the never-ending quest to offer more a more unique look to the most popular half-ton pickup truck sold in the U.S., Ford will offer a new Special Edition Appearance Package for its model-year 2016 F-150, but only for the midlevel XLT and Lariat trims.

    The new SE Package also requires the XLT or Lariat be ordered with the existing Sport Appearance Package, and adds 20-inch anodized aluminum wheels with sport lettering, smoked headlamps, unique body-side graphics, SE seats with red Alcantara inserts, a stitched steering wheel and transmission gear selector, and a unique instrument panel. The SE package is further distinguished from other models by a blackened mesh grille on XLT models and a dark anodized dual-slat (red and black) grille on Lariat models. The new SE offers a sportier look reminiscent of the 2014 Ford Tremor; however, that particular pickup was offered in only regular-cab configurations, while the new SE model will be offered in all three cab setups.

    I wish they'd do a Coke or Pepsi version. I'd buy one for Plane.

    SE? Could they think of a more boring, tired name for an appearance package?

    Strange that Ford would use the same SE designation used for basic trim in other vehicles,
    I think this will lead to confusion or worse downplaying what appears to be a well thought out package.

    I always liked how Ford had a ton of different special packages all with a different grill, When you walked down the lot at a large Ford dealer you would see 8 or 10 different looking trucks all with there own touches.

    I've always thought the FX4 with the side stripes looked good.....

    The new F-150 is starting to grow on me. I like that they never seem to have a shortage of different trim levels and models to choose from, a flavor for everyone.
