For the first time, Ford F-150 fleet customers will have the option of selecting factory-installed LED strobe lights on the half-ton pickup – a very useful feature for utility and construction crews, and the like.
Ford already offers a factory LED strobe warning light option on the F-Series Super Duty, using specially-developed light modules which are durable, weather-resistant, draw little power, and require no drilling for installation. That same kit has now been extended to all 2016 Ford F-150 models, and comes with a 3-year/36,000-mile warranty.
During daytime operation, the Ford F-150’s new LED strobe warning lights can be seen from distances up to 1,000 feet away. At night, the compact LEDs have a visible range of up to a mile. The front light units are installed high at the rear edge of the hood, while the rear modules are placed on either side of the center brake light, and both feature customizable strobe patterns.
Perhaps best of all, Ford F-150 fleet customers no longer have to rely on the aftermarket to provide strobe warning lights, risking low build quality or shoddy installation that might open the door to corrosion.
“Ford designed the first-ever factory-installed LED warning light kit based on fleet customer input,” says Ford Commercial Accessory Business Development Manager Kent Bock. “Because it comes directly from Ford, customers can trust that this light kit is Built Ford Tough. Ordering is as easy as checking a box, and the truck is delivered to your dealer with the system installed.”
