The Ford F-150 has been one of the automaker’s most popular trucks. Part of what has made it so popular is that it has long come in variety of trim levels so that buyers can have great flexibility in putting together the perfect configuration for their needs. One of the most popular of the trim levels has always been the XLT. The second-tier trim level gives buyers a few more features without increasing the price dramatically and without getting too specialized.
What you get on the Ford F-150 XLT depends on the model year you buy, and Tim’s Truck Capital has a number of models over several years so you can find the perfect match. Here’s what you might expect to find on the Ford F-150 XLT:
The Ford F-150 and the XLT trim level both typically come with the same standard engine, which is designed for powerful and dependable performance. This is a reliable work truck, and the powertrain is designed to handle rugged conditions and to haul heavy loads.
With the XLT trim, buyers had the option of upgrading to a more powerful V6 or V8 option or even a turbocharged V6 option, such as was the case with the 2018 model. These upgrades provided greater towing capacity and more torque to get out of sticky spots. By shopping for previously owned models of the Ford F-150 XLT, you have the ability to find a truck upgraded with one of these more powerful option without having to pay as much for it.
Most work trucks don’t come with a lot of frills. By upgrading the trim level, you get a few more creature comforts. That is also true with the Ford F-150 XLT. At this trim level, you get cloth upholstery instead of vinyl, as well as carpeted floors and chrome interior accents. Extras like power and heated seats were often offered as options.
Convenience and entertainment features that you’ll usually find on the Ford F-150 XLT include the Ford Sync3 system, one-touch windows, remote keyless entry, keypad locking, and more. Many additional features are also made available as options. Again, the specifics depend on what model year you are considering and what options the original buyer chose. Buy by shopping for previously owned models, you gain access to a much wider selection and for a better price.
Basic upgrades are also introduced on the XLT trim level. Cab options include the regular cab, super cab, and supercrew cab, and different bed lengths are available. Alloy wheels are standard, as are chrome bumpers, a chrome grille, and power folding mirrors.
Additional features come with the XLT that you won’t find on the base model Ford F-150. The XLT comes with all the same great features for which the model is known – plus a few more that make driving more comfortable and fun.
