Ford will offer factory-installed strobe lighting on its 2016 F-Series Super Duty trucks for utility, road construction or municipal crews to enhance vehicle visibility, Ford has announced.

Ford will offer the LED light kit as an option that includes front- and rear-mounted amber-lens strobe lights that can be seen as far as 1,000 feet away during the day and as far as a mile away at night.

The strobe lights installed on F-Series Super Duty trucks in use at worksites are designed to warn motorists and others that workers may be present and to proceed with caution. They have been evaluated for any applicable regulations and industry standards.

Among utility fleets, vehicle lighting has become an important part of the spec'ing process as a way to reduce accidents, especially for roadside utility work at night.
