Though the 2012 Ford F-150 FX4 and FX2 trim levels were originally designed to lend the F-150 a sporty exterior look, the 2012 Ford F-150 FX Appearance Package takes things to the next level; available with any exterior paint color, the new option group tosses in a number of black-colored exterior accents, including emblems, grille insert, headlamp surrounds, smoked rear tail lamps, and a chromed exhaust tip.
New six-spoke, 20-inch wheels are also part of the 2012 Ford F-150 FX Appearance Package, and they’re also treated to a black finish.

Some of the brushed aluminum trim was a little off, but on the whole, we were stunned at the level of craftsmanship in the 2012 Ford F-150 interior.

The 2012 Ford F 150 Platinum has an aesthetic sensibility which may not be as avant-garde as some import brands, but its miles ahead of most of the other domestic manufacturers.
