Ford announces release of 2013 F-150 King Ranch
DALLAS, Sept. 27, 2012 – Texas is the nation’s largest truck market, and Ford has longstanding ties to King Ranch, a Texas institution. To celebrate another year in this successful relationship, the 2013 F-150 King Ranch debuted at the 2012 State Fair of Texas.
“While others are just starting to understand the appeal of Texas innovation and luxury, we’re proud to have worked with our longtime partners at King Ranch who helped define both,” said Ford General Marketing Manager Dave Mondragon. “The latest F-150 King Ranch extends this honor and tradition.”
Like its namesake, F-150 King Ranch is the product of generations of F-Series trucks that came before it.
Outside, the latest F-150 King Ranch features a bold new three-bar grille and available new 20-inch machined aluminum wheels. There’s also an available monotone paint option and customers can add a special King Ranch chrome package for additional luxury cues.
Inside, the seats are wrapped in rich, timeless Chaparral leather. An all-new black interior environment is available (in addition to traditional Adobe), plus smart technology like standard MyFord Touch® optimized for truck owners, standard ambient interior lighting and available class-exclusive HID headlamps.
The 2013 Ford F-150 King Ranch does more than look good. F-150 King Ranch is available with a choice of 5.0-liter V8 or the advanced, segment-exclusive 3.5-liter EcoBoost® engine, which provides the power of an eight-cylinder engine and the fuel efficiency of a six-cylinder while achieving a best-in-class 11,300 pounds of trailer towing capability.
Both engines are mated to a fuel-saving electronic six-speed automatic transmission with tow/haul mode and SelectShift® capability.
“King Ranch is built on the heritage, hard work and innovation of seven generations of King family descendants and employees, just like what Ford has built into its F-Series pickup trucks,” said King Ranch Chairman Jamey Clement.
