We’ve seen many interesting Ford dealership packages and they give a fresh twist to your truck. These are mostly available for the lower trims and comes with quite a few features that make the whole ownership experience quite a happy one. One such package has come to light this time from Beechmont Ford. This Ohio dealership has introduced a retro package for the 2020 Ford F-150. It comes in a dual-tone shade, features a Roush exhaust, and oodles of chrome.
What’s Special About This Ford F-150?
A couple of months back, a Kansas-based dealership called Long McArthur also released a retro package called ‘Highboy’ for the F-250 based on the namesake Ford trucks sold in the 60s and 70s. This one is also quite similar in terms of appearance and some of the equipment installed. Beechmont has used a 2020 Ford F-150 XLT in Rapid Red Metallic as the base here. It is partially wrapped in white vinyl to give it a retro look.
The egg crate grille up front is slapped with a chrome bar. Then there are chrome bumpers, chrome roll bars in the bed, and chrome step-up bars. The truck rides on 18-inch chrome wheels. The roll bar houses KC Daylighter auxiliary lights as well. There are also Roush exhaust tips peeping from under the body. There aren’t a lot of changes made to the cabin, but it is trimmed in Medium Earth Gray color and comes with the standard stuff along with the additional equipment listed below.
In the standard form, the 2020 F-150 in the XLT trim comes with a 3.3-liter, V-6 engine that makes 290 horses and 265 pound-feet of torque. Power is sent to either the rear wheels or all the wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission.
Beechmont has equipped this truck with a 5.0-liter, V-8 Coyote engine, which is a $1,995 option.
This mill churns out 395 horses and 400 pound-feet of torque. It is mated to a 10-speed automatic gearbox. The towing and payload capacities on this mill are rated at 10,600- and 3,270 pounds respectively.
But, that’s not all. The dealership has also installed various other accessories and packages:
- Equipment Group 302A (includes the XLT Series, a rear-window defroster, and SiriusXM Radio) – $4,345
- XLT Power Equipment Group – $725
- Chrome Appearance Package, Vinyl Wrap, Wheels, And Step Bars – $395
- 3.55 Electronic Locking Rear Axle – $470
- Voice-Activated Navigation – $795
- Trailer Tow Package – $995
- Extended-Range 36-Gallon Fuel Tank – $445
- Flex Fuel Capability – $295
How Much Does It Cost?
All these extra stuff add $10,460 to the price of the F-150 XLT, which is $34,760 according to Ford’s website.
However, the dealer, as well as the company, are running discounts, which you could know by contacting the dealership itself.
