2016 Ford F-150 MVP Edition Bound for Kansas City Ford Dealers

CLAYCOMO, Missouri — A limited run of 2016 Ford F-150 MVP edition trucks, created to honor the World Series champion Kansas City Royals, is on sale now at Kansas City area Ford dealerships.

Ford will build just 300 units of the special truck.

It is based on the F-150 XLT with the chrome package and is available in Oxford White or Blue Flame, in a nod to the team's colors.

The truck also includes special MVP badging, unique polished stainless rocker panels and a spray-in bedliner.

Complete pricing was not available immediately, but Ford spokeswoman Jessica Enoch told Edmunds buyers should expect to pay in the "mid-$40s, plus a $1,195 destination charge."

"The 2016 Ford F-150 MVP edition started as an idea from Marc Lassalle, a Kansas City Royals fan, to celebrate his team's second world championship," Ford said in a statement. "It follows the 1986 Ford Ranger MVP edition, created and sold in 1985 to celebrate Kansas City's first time as world champions."

Ford has tapped former Kansas City Royals star Bret Saberhagen, from the 1985 team roster, and Salvador Perez, from the 2015 team, to promote the special truck.

The F-150 MVP edition trucks are built at Ford's Kansas City Assembly Plant.

Edmunds says: These trucks are bound to score with baseball fans, so it's best to get the conversation going with your Kansas City area Ford dealer now.
