Ford and OSRAM collaborated during the pre-production phase and tested for standards to ensure the headlights still perform well during times of high vibration like one would experience while off-roading.

OSRAM Automotive Lighting and Ford are working together on the 2013 Ford F-150 to provide a high intensity discharge (HID) headlamp system on select models, according to the companies.

Previously featuring standard tungsten halogen headlamps, these Ford F-150 models will benefit from improved light spread from side to side, and improved foreground and down-road illumination, the companies said.

In addition, HID generates light at a higher color temperature, so it's whiter and more like natural daylight. Mercury-free HID lamps provide four times the lumens per watt of traditional halogen light sources and are more efficient at converting electrical energy into light.

HID now comes standard on the 2013 F-150 Platinum and Limited editions and is available as an option on the FX2, FX4, Raptor, Lariat and King Ranch models.
