Ford is expanding the availability of factory-installed LED strobe warning light kit to the F-150 range for the first time. The automaker already offers LED strobe warning lights on the larger 2016 Super Duty truck range.

Designed for use by utility, road construction, and municipal crews who need enhanced vehicle visibility on the work site, the LED strobe light kit will be able to warn motorists that workers are present in a specific site, letting them know to drive with extra caution. Ford's LED strobe light kit uses weather-resist, low power LED lights that have been specifically designed to work with F-150 's all-aluminum body.

Front- and rear-mounted amber lens strobe lights can be seen from up to 1,000 feet during the day and up to a mile at night time. Forward-facing signals are mounted high at the rear edge of the hood for optimum visibility while the rear-facing signals are positioned on either side of the high-mounted stop light to provide 180-degree lighting. Customers will also be able to program the lights' flash patterns to meet specific fleet requirements.

"Ford designed the first-ever factory-installed LED warning light kit based on fleet customer input," said Kent Bock, Ford's commercial accessory business development manager, in a release. "Because it comes directly from Ford, customers can trust that this light kit is Built Ford Tough. Ordering is as easy as checking a box, and the truck is delivered to your dealer with the system installed."

The factory-installed LED strobe warning lights are a no-drill option and come with a warranty of three years or 36,000 miles. Ford also says that the strobe lights are not susceptible to corrosion issues that can be the result of aftermarket installation and are serviceable at all dealerships.
