That’s because the 2013 North American International Motor Show has opened its doors today, and behind them are some of the most rugged vehicles the US has ever produced.

Ford is trying to differentiate itself from the crowd by offering up every Texan’s dream. George W. Bush had one, and we can clearly see why, because the F-150 King Ranch is filled with luxury touches that even a farmer can indulge in.

For 2013, the King Ranch comes with an updated exterior look, 20-inch wheels, an interior covered in Chaparral leather, an all-new black dash and trim and standard MyFord Touch, which has been optimized for truck owners.

The truck is available with a choice of two engines, a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 which puts out 365 hp and 570 Nm (420 lb-ft), and a 5.0-liter V8 with 360 hp and 515 Nm (380 lb-ft).

“While others are just starting to understand the appeal of Texas innovation and luxury, we’re proud to have worked with our longtime partners at King Ranch who helped define both,” said Ford General Marketing Manager Dave Mondragon. “The latest F-150 King Ranch extends this honor and tradition.”

“King Ranch is built on the heritage, hard work and innovation of seven generations of King family descendants and employees, just like what Ford has built into its F-Series pickup trucks,” said King Ranch Chairman Jamey Clement. “It’s why we trust Ford as a genuine partner and why we depend on a fleet of 260 Ford trucks to get the job done every day at King Ranch.”
