2023 Ford F-150 Heritage Edition Leak Suggests New Package Incoming

The 2023 Ford F-150 is likely only months away from being fully revealed, and while it may not bring any groundbreaking changes to the full-size pickup, it is a given that The Blue Oval is planning on introducing some new packages and models to supplement the current offerings throughout the lineup. As Ford Authority previously reported, an all-new Rattler package is slated to fill out the XL range as a budget option for off-road enthusiasts. On the completely opposite end of the spectrum will lie the Ford Raptor R, a range-topping muscle truck destined to pack tons of power and robust desert running capability. Now, a new leak heavily indicates Ford is planning on introducing another package into the model range as well.

Several pictures of a purported 2023 Ford F-150 Heritage Edition were compiled into a video by The Raptor Connection, each showing off some elements of the upcoming package or model. The truck has a distinct two-tone paint job, with Cactus Gray serving as the base paint while the cab above the greenhouse is painted black, including the roof. Additionally, the rocker panels and front and rear bumpers appear to be painted black as well. The sole interior pic features a close up of what is presumably one of the front seats, which has “Ford F-Series Heritage Edition” embossed into the leather. This suggests more than one F-Series model may be receiving the package.

Interestingly enough, the timing of this package, if it is real, would make sense, as The Blue Oval offered an F-150 Heritage Edition for the 2003 model year. The automaker introduced the package to celebrate its 100th anniversary, although its two-tone exterior paint scheme looked a bit different than the pickup featured in the leak.

In any event, this potential model will seemingly coexist with the all-new Rattler package and the 2023 Ford F-150 Raptor R, which are all but guaranteed to be added to the mix when production for the upcoming model year begins this October. The timing of this leak, and previous leaks regarding the Raptor R, may indicate that the company is gearing up to formally introduce both additions in the coming weeks.

    With due respect, I believe this will be Ford’s 120th anniversary (1903-2023).

    Seeing how the F-Series pickups started in 1948, this could be the 75th anniversary celebration event. Ford did celebrate 50 years of the F-Series in 1998 with the ’50th anniversary edition’ package. So maybe there’s a ’75th anniversary’ Heritage Edition package coming.

      This would be the logical choice to me. Recognize the anniversary of the iconic model more so than the history of the company.

      Looks like my guess was correct regarding the ’75th Anniversary Edition’ package.

    This is the stupidest thing I’ve heard of
    Wow really🤡

    FORD’S #1
    (only made my truck 1 year it says right on the paperwork it took 100 years to make this one)
    why would you have 120-year Ford absolutely makes no sense at all ridiculous and why would they make it gray ugly
    for 19 and a half years I’ve taken my truck in for service at Ford and they always think I customized it and I give the salesman three guesses of what my truck is it a Harley-Davidson is it a lightning is it a lariat is it a special edition is is it a Kings ranch no no no no no no and no I’ve met people that worked at Ford for 50 years two men in their 80s in Sarasota Florida one guy was in homoLgamation for Ford he delivered trucks all over the world for 50 years
    THAT IS WHERE THEY CUSTOMIZE TRUCKS AND CARS FOR DIFFERENT LAWS IN DIFFERENT COUNTRIES FOR AUTOMOBILES
    I gave him three guesses no no no no and no he didn’t have a clue what it was we were in a parking lot at a auto parts store I met another guy he pulls up says “NICE TRUCK”
    I SAID THANK YOU I said have you ever seen this truck before he said I worked at Ford for over 50 years I covered the badge and asked him what is it no no no no and no
    I watch Barrett-Jackson I watch Mecum for 20 years this truck has never crossed the block in 19 and 1/2 years I’ve lived in seven states and two countries I’ve seen my truck three times on the road
    I have paperwork I paid $52,000 for my truck 19 and 1/2 years ago yes sir
    Yes sir Ford is number one I made millions of dollars in that truck for work it’s all original the only thing I have changed in that truck in 19 and a half years is brake pads and a battery oil and filter changes
    Absolutely runs and drives like the day I bought it
    People always say fix or repair daily I say
    FIRST ON RACE DAY 🇺🇸

    “FORD”
    THEY’VE MADE HARLEY-DAVIDSON TRUCKS FOR OVER 20 YEARS
    THINK ABOUT IT
    YOU CANNOT REIMAGINE A 100-YEAR TRUCK MADE ONE YEAR ONE TIME QUESTION ?
    WHAT IS A 120-YEAR FORD HERITAGE EDITION?
    I AM OFFENDED I’VE OWNED FORD TRUCKS MY ENTIRE LIFE I’M 57 YEARS OLD
    WOW
    I am disappointed I have to admit
    Sarasota Florida siesta key
    I wish I could send a picture of my truck what a beauty
    They also had a 2004 heritage edition it was a plain work truck
    That made no sense either it was 101 years
    Come on guys really
    There’s only one heritage edition sorry

    I have the burgundy and black four-wheel drive

    Totally illogical why don’t you make a 112 year Ford or a 97 year Ford
    And why would you make it gray
    I don’t get it I seen this on Google at 2:00 in the morning and I just about went through the roof of my house from my bed

    Ford please don’t do this
    Wait till 2103 and make a 200 year Ford please wow I can’t sleep now unbelievable
    I’m so upset right now I feel like driving to Ford headquarters in my truck and protest 💯🇺🇸

    My story I bought my truck January 2nd 2003 at 8:00 in the morning I was in the Ford parking lot before they opened I had an XLT Ford F-150 I walked through the gate in the back lot of a thousand trucks in a field my truck was at the entrance to the gate next to the Harley-Davidson trucks I walked past my truck and went into the field got in the middle of the field turned around walked back to my truck at the front gate the salesman asked me if I wanted the truck I said yes he said let’s go inside and fill out paperwork I said no that’s okay I will stand here by the truck and you go get the paperwork and bring it out to me thinking that if I went inside somebody could walk in and buy the truck before I got back it just didn’t look like any of the other trucks I knew it was mine I bought the truck and drove off the lot you couldn’t order that truck you bought it the way you seen it each dealership got a couple of them and that’s it I knew it when I walked past it I had no idea what it was people sell this truck online and they post it as a 2003 Ford f150 red and black they don’t know what it is I am surprised they did not number that truck like a Shelby for being a 100-year Ford I don’t know why they didn’t do that the only thing I don’t have is the window sticker I regret that one I have everything else I wanted a sunroof in it and the salesman told me they needed to keep it for 2 weeks and I said that’s okay I want it now I don’t want to leave it here and I never got a sunroof in it some of them have them it depends on how you seen it that’s how you bought it a lot of times when you look for parts or pieces that truck is not in the manual

    That’s my story and I’m sticking to it
    I bought that truck with 10 miles on it
    they drove it from the train to the lot

    Do not make a 120-year heritage edition
    it’s disrespectful to the heritage of Ford

    The Harley-Davidson edition or a King ranch or a platinum or a lightning
    Are not a 100 year Ford
    Never will be sorry it’s over 💯🇺🇸

    Just saying🤠
    Thank you for your time
