At its official launch, the 2013 Ford F-150 was only offered in three versions - XLT, Lariat, and FX4 - but now Ford is expanding the F-150 line-up with the addition of a new version.

Chrome elements will be used for the bold three-bar grille, tie-down hooks lining the cargo box, the single tip of the tuned exhaust, and the tow hooks on 4x4 variants. The model will only be offered in three exterior colors: Ruby Red Metallic Tinted Clearcoat, Tuxedo Black Metallic, and White Platinum Metallic Tri-Coat.
