The Blue Oval is very pleased to announce that the 2015 Ford F-150 will be the first pickup truck to have LED headlamps, with so much refracting in the housing that only one diode is needed per side. Apparently they're also tough as hell.
In a bid to maintain its lead in swaying other automakers to adopt ostentatious lights, Audi is pushing hard to bring its next bit of illuminated wizardry to consumers on the new A8. The next step comes in the form of these wicked sequential turn signals. But they're not legal in the US – yet.
This phenomenon of LED lights is one of my least-liked in current car design. Part of it does come down to the execution, and I can think of several cars that look as though designers were given a crate of stick-on LEDs from a craft store on Friday and told to come up with something interesting by Monday.
