The 2018 Ford F-150 is the latest love in America's long affair with full-size trucks. For decades, the F-150 has ruled the roost.

In order to separate higher trims from lower brethren, most get a few unique styling touches and a whole sea of chrome. Just look at these photos of the slightly updated 2019 Ford F-150 Limited.
