Ford unveiled the 2013 version of the big ol’ F-150 pickup truck with surprisingly minor updates. The mighty truck has received a nose job with a massive chrome grille like those found on the Heavy Duty series, and new L-shaped HID headlights. It also gets new wheel designs – from 18 to 20-inch – and three new colors of Blue Jeans Metallic, Kodiak Brown Metallic and Ruby Red Clearcoat Metallic.

A highlight of the new model is the MYFord Touch and SYNC services, available as standard equipment in XLT series and above. Services include  hands-free, voice-activated control of enabled mobile devices,  Traffic Information, Turn-by-Turn Directions, Business Search, Send to SYNC from Google Maps and MapQuest, News, Sports, Weather and Horoscopes, all controlled through a 4.2-inch LCD center-stack screen.

That is pretty much it for the interior, but you may order the FX Appearance Package that now adds Alcantara seat inserts that amplify its sporty persona. Meanwhile the platinum series offer new choices of Black or Pecan leather seating.
