Headlights on my 2010 CTSV are not nearly as bright as my 2020 Subaru which makes the road ahead like daylight. My lens covers are clear. I intend to keep the car for a few more years. Any suggestions on how to get brighter and see more road at night? Thanks

My base model 2021 F150 XL without any fancy LED headlights or anything has overall better forward lighting than my 2010 V (and auto high-beams, which I've come to love). I think technology has just improved that much in the past decade. I can't imagine any aftermarket headlight would improve upon what GM put in there, but I've been wrong before.

are your lights doing the startup scan thinghy?
maybe they are stuck aiming down or something I don't think the lights are THAT bad

off chance someone possibly that someone swapped in a set of halogens?

In my case, I wouldn't necessarily complain about my CTS-V headlights, they definitely go up/down/level on startup and they turn when I turn, but overall, the truck I drive every day has better lighting.

a halogen F150 has better lighting than a V? I had a halogen f250 and it was like driving by candle light
Certainly subjective. The '21 Ford is the better than the '20 Ford it replaced. The '18 Chevy 1500 WT that was before the '20 Ford was better than both of the Fords.

Like I say, I certainly wouldn't call my V headlights "inadequate" in any way.

my buddy just went through 2 different LED bulbs and finally drop in housings on his 2020 Ford F250 he compared the halogens to something along the lines of getting better lighting if he had a flashlight taped to the fenders
