2012 FX4 w/ Luxury package

Heading out the door for the Listowel Meet and Greet, I swung by the local dealership to steal a pic of this offering.

2012 FX4 with the Luxury Package. Caught my eye yesterday and thought it was worth posting.

To be honest, there isn't much I like about this one.....

Graphics....nope, don't like 'em.

Red F150 emblems....nope.

Black wheels.....nope. Like the style, but not the black.

The interior was nice, black leather with red piping to mix it up, but overall not impressed.

Blacked out grille, headlights and tail lights work good too.

Thoughts?

As we discussed today, not everything works for everybody, do what works for you.

Ol' Skool will never have a Raptor in the driveway, right Gerry ?

+1.. Reminds me of the Foose truck.. I like the Foose, but thos seems like a cheap knock of copy slash rearrange design..

Red F150 emblems....nope. [/QUOTE]
+1. maybe color matched to the body?

Maybe that's what throws me off on this one.....I'd be interested in seeing the same package in black to see if it struck me the same or different.

Still don't like that graphic on the side though, even if it was black, but then again, that's not something I'm into, so it seems reasonable.

I can't stand black rims. That FX Appearance package does look alot better on a black or red truck though. It just looks out of place on a silver truck.

Don't know if I like it in silver. I liked it in the red candy though. I do like the black rims and I don't mind the decal/graphic. I don't care for the red F150 badge though...it's the wrong colour of red and sticks out too much.
