First Ever Warning Strobes Fitted as Standard on 2016 Ford F-150s

Posted by Extreme Tactical Dynamics on Jun 29th 2019

Ford has always been a visionary in the automotive industry. And now the truck company is the first ever to fit strobe lights on their vehicles. With this upgrade, Ford is proving they can anticipate what customers just like you want from their vehicles.

The specialized lighting is already offered on Ford's 2016 F-Series Super Duty and will soon be an option for its 2016 F-150 fleet. The F-Series from Ford has been one of the best-selling automobiles for decades. With the addition of LED strobe lights, the truck is an even better work truck choice.

The Addition of Strobe Lights to the F-150 Series is a Big Deal

At first notice, you might think the addition of strobes on the F-Series is not that big of a deal. But, it is! Ford is recognized for its safety and innovation year after year. By making this light kit available as standard on their trucks, they are improving the way people can work and stay safe.

When mounted on the edges of the F-150's cab and near the stop light on the back window, you can deliver 180-degrees of LED output. LED technology allows the light to be seen for up to 1,000 feet, which improves visibility on the road, both day and night. The technology also provides a wide circle of light around the truck that gives workers more room to carry out tasks near their truck.

Ford's Reputation Makes the F-150 a Smart Buy

2015 Ford F-150 PlatinumThe addition of strobe lights to the F-150 and Super Duty trucks is just another example of the company's commitment to excellence. Ford already reduced the weight of these vehicles by 700 lbs when they switched to a military-grade aluminum alloy frame. The lightweight frame makes it more agile than any other light-duty pickup on the market.

The light frame is also the reason the truck can haul and tow more than any other half-ton truck. What’s more, the F-Series is extremely safe, which makes it an impressive fleet vehicle. Awards the F-150 has won this year include:

  • 2016 IIHS Top Safety Pick Award
  • 5-Star Overall Crash Test Rating from the US Department of Transportation's New Car Assessment Program 
  • 2016 Most Popular on 
  • 2016 Best Buy of the Year from Kelley Blue Book 
  • Voted Best Truck Brand by US News and World Report
  • According to industry information, the 2016 Ford F-150 also has the lowest 5-year cost to own in its class. If you’ve always bought Dodge, Chevy, or Toyota, you might want to reconsider your choices.

    Ford fared better than the Dodge Ram, Chevy Silverado, and Toyota Tundra in safety tests. The Dodge Ram received a poor structural rating from the IIHS. Ford is also the first and only truck brand to offer factory-installed LED strobe lights, a feature sure to be emulated by other manufacturers in the future.

    Ordinary Civilians can Order Strobe Light Kits

    Strobe lights and emergency light bars for trucks are used by utility road construction and municipality crews to warn motorists and others that a worker is present in the area. But, ordinary folks, like you and I can also install strobe lights on their vehicles in order to be prepared for an emergency.

    Strobes aren't an everyday driving light, but they can be beneficial if you have an emergency on the road or your vehicle breaks down, especially at night. Ford makes the addition of strobe lighting an option for anyone ordering a 2016 F-Series, but that doesn’t mean you to have to buy a new truck to get this emergency lighting.
