In the world of sports, MVP is a congratulatory acronym for the Most Valuable Player. In the world of trucks, FoMoCo has decided that da real MVP is the Ford F-150. More specifically, the F-150 MVP Edition.
So it has come to this. But then again, this is not the first time the Blue Oval offers an MVP limited edition pickup truck. Remember the 1986 Ford Ranger MVP? That model was launched as a celebratory edition for the Kansas City Royals baseball team after it had secured its first world champ title. In 2015, the Kansas City Royals won the World Series once again.

Another detail that makes the 2016 Ford F-150 MVP Edition fit like a jigsaw falling into place is that the light-duty F-Series is assembled at the Ford Kansas City Assembly Plant. So what is so special about this truck? Nothing much, to be utterly honest, except for the MVP badging. Other than that, you’re looking at polished stainless rocker panels, a spray-in bedliner, and a choice between Oxford White or Blue Flame exterior paint.

The F-150 MVP Edition comes exclusively with the chrome package. Because Ford has this erroneous idea that the people who would buy an F-150 would also like a shiny dental grill to go. As for the two gentlemen sitting next to da real MVP, they are Salvador Perez of the 2015 Kansas City Royals lineup and Bret Saberhagen from the 1985 roster.

“Like our manufacturing team members at Kansas City Assembly Plant, the Kansas City Royals are a great example of what terrific teamwork can accomplish,” said Gary Johnson, Ford vice president for North America manufacturing. Based on the $31,790 Ford F-150 XLT, da real most valuable player is already on sale. The thing is, only 300 units of this workhorse are available exclusively at Kansas City area Ford dealers.
