The 2013 Ford F150 Limited easily makes all other luxury trucks look shabby; it's so sleek and sexy inside and out. This truck has loaded up interior design with impressive features like a moonroof, which provides and upward view, a rear view camera which makes backward manoeuvring easier, a voice activated navigation system and the rich red and black full-grain leather seats come with aluminum trim to create a comfortable and ideal temperature for the seats to really enhance the driving and riding experience. Worth noting as well is the memory functionality that remembers the seating preference of two types of drivers. The backseats are heated too so all passengers are kept comfortable throughout the ride. Like the previous 2011 Ford F150 Limited, it has HID headlamps which deliver more light compared to halogen lamps and have the F150 insignia, 22 inch polished to a shine aluminum wheels and of course the word "Limited" emblazoned on the rear quarter panel of the truck.

Ford representatives claim that this truck perfectly combines extreme capability and refined exterior design to adequately meet the luxury needs of today's motorists.
With regards to the exterior design, the 2013 Ford F150 Limited comes in three luxurious colors: the Ruby Red Metallic Tinted Clearcoat, which is the one used in the promotional images of the model; the Tuxedo Black Metallic, which has a strong and handsome appeal; and the White Platinum Metallic Tri-Coat, which remains to be the most popular colour for luxury vehicles mainly because it represents modern minimalism and technology. The color theme is maintained through the body-color front, rear bumpers, the caps of the side mirrors, as well as the upper fascia, wheel lip moulding, and the grille surround - therefore creating a beautiful solid color block. The truck exclusively comes in a SuperCrew four-door cab configuration.
