2012 Ford F-150 Gets new FX Package and Driveline Updates

Ford has announced the updates to the Ford F-150 pickup, which gets a new FX appearance package for the 2012 model year.

The FX appearance package includes unique 20-inch flat-black wheels, a stylized bodyside graphic and black badges with red lettering. The interior gets black leather seats with red trim, brushed-metal accents and a red-stitched steering wheel.

“The new FX package delivers a distinctive style that truck buyers are looking for without compromising on any of the F-150’s rugged qualities,” said Raj Sarkar, F-150 Marketing manager. “It expands our range of specialty vehicles with custom elements that customers previously could find only in the aftermarket.”

The FX luxury package also adds cooled and heated front seats.

Other upgrades to the 2012 F-150 include a new standard hill start assist system that keeps the truck from rolling back on a hill. Lariat, King Ranch and Platinum trim models also get a new 4×4 system that offers four high and four low modes in addition to a 4×4 auto mode. Neutral tow capability on 4×4 equipped models means customers can now flat-tow their F-150.
