2015 Ford F-150 to Feature LED Headlights

Ford has proudly announced that the 2015 F-150 will be the first light-duty pickup truck sold in the United States with LED headlights. According to the company, the new headlights will last five times longer than traditional headlights, all with the aim to make the new F-150 the toughest version of the pickup yet. In fact, LED lights are more durable than halogen headlights. The durability of the new headlight design was tested by Ford engineers who shot rocks at the LED lights, bathed them in saltwater, froze them, baked them in extreme sun, and covered them in rock salt to see how much abuse they could endure.

LED lights are becoming increasingly popular in electronics, on vehicles and even inside homes. The 2015 Ford F-150’s headlights are unique, even when compared to other LED lights, thanks to an innovative design. Each headlight houses just a single LED light, with the light reflecting off 16 precision-carved optical surfaces and 80 facets on the lens, providing ample lamination.

The design of the new headlights also includes a thin LED tube that goes around the edges of the headlights. The feature is the first of its kind in the automotive industry, giving the new F-150’s headlights a distinct look that can be picked out from a distance.

“Remember the craze in the 1980s with truck light bars?” Ford lighting expert John Teodecki asked. “It looks so cool. I’m telling you, this LED light tube is going to be the next big thing. Our new F-150 owners will be longing for dusk every day, just to show off their trucks in dramatic lighting.”
