Ford F-150 Heritage Edition Revives Classic Colors For 75th Anniversary

Special Editions / Comments

The F-Series is more than just a truck, it's an American institution.

The Blue Oval is celebrating the 75th anniversary of the F-Series pickup with the new 2023 Ford F-150 Heritage Edition.

The Heritage Edition trim is available on the F-150 XLT trim, and Ford says the design is a "fresh interpretation of the classic A-B-A exterior paint pattern." In normal human language, that means the roof and pillars are painted in color A, color B is used for the midsection, and A repeats on the bumpers, lower door, and lower body. This three-section two-tone paintjob was a popular option on classic trucks back in the day.

Five schemes will be available. A Carbonized Gray upper and lower can be paired with Race Red or Antimatter Blue midsections while Agate Black uppers and lowers can be had with Atlas Blue, Avalanche (white), and Area 51 midsections.

The interior is finished in Black and Slate Gray. To separate it from regular XLT models, Ford also adds unique seat trim covers and embossing on the console lid. A white "75 Years" logo is placed up high in the middle of the windshield, showing up again as part of the startup graphic in the infotainment display.

Orders for the 2023 F-150 Heritage Edition open in mid-July and production will start in the fall. According to Ford, we'll have to wait until the order books open to get pricing.

The wait for one of these will likely be long, considering Ford continues to struggle with the global semiconductor shortage. Ford cut production of the F-150 and other a few other models in February.

75 years is a big milestone for the truck, which has become synonymous with hard work and reliability. There's a reason why it's been the best-selling truck lineup in the US every single year since 1977, setting a record that will never be broken by another combustion-powered pickup truck. More than that, it has been the best-selling vehicle in the US since 1981.

In its 75 years of existence and 15 generations, the Blue Oval has built more than 40 million F-Series trucks, as of January 2022. That means there are nearly as many of Ford's class-leading pickups on the planet as there are Toyota Corollas. Spread over 15 generations, the F-Series.

2023 will see more than just the Heritage Edition added to the lineup as the off-road-focused F-150 Rattler will also be available. Based on the affordable XL trim, it borrows skid plates, hill descent control, and a locking rear differential from the FX4 and has unique tuning for the shock absorbers for hardcore off-roading.
