F-150 Trim Levels | Trailer Sway Control

No matter what F-150 trim level you go with, you get Ford quality and power. So what difference do trim levels and packages make?

Well, not to go overboard, but it can be the difference between finding a good truck and finding your truck. Here's what you need to know about the F-150 trim levels at Sabine River Ford.

Ford F-150 Model Lineup in Orange, TX

There's a reason the Ford F-150 leads the field of pickups. There's simply not another name you can trust when it comes to quality and power in your next truck.

Still, you get a good deal of variety in that one model of truck.

Do you want the V-6 Ecoboost or a V-8 engine? What sort of towing package do you need?

To find the truck that best fits all your needs, you'll want to run through that list of requirements with one of our Ford experts here in Orange. But to get you started, here's what you should know about the different trim levels.

Ford F-150 XL

The F-150 comes in three cab styles: regular, SuperCab and SuperCrew. It also comes in three bed lengths: 5.5-foot, 6.5-foot and 8-foot. From there, standard features are determined by the trim level, starting with the 2017 F-150 XL.

In addition to a 3.3L Ti-VCT V6 engine, black two-bar style grille with black nostrils, and the rear view camera (with dynamic hitch assist), this F-150 model features:

  • 17-inch wheels
  • Trailer sway control
  • Vinyl flooring
  • Driver information display
  • Bluetooth connectivity

Ford F-150 XLT

When you bump up to the F-150 XLT, everything just gets a little better - like the 17" silver-painted aluminum wheels or the chrome two-bar style grille. You'll enjoy everything from the XL, with these additions or enhancements:

  • Remote keyless entry
  • Ford MyKey system
  • USB connectivity
  • Smartphone app integration
  • Power windows and locks

Ford F-150 Lariat

At the next level, the F-150 Lariat rocks a 2.7L EcoBoost V6 and Sync 3, the easy-to-use, responsive interface that puts the cabin's tech at your voice's command.

And don't overlook the Electronic 10-speed Transmission. This gearbox enhanced acceleration, reduces drag, and runs in five modes: Normal, Tow/Haul, Snow/Wet, EcoSelect, and Sport.

The Lariat truck also boasts:

  • Heated, auto-dimming mirrors
  • Heated and ventilated seats and dual-zone climate control
  • 110-volt power outlet
  • Blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alerts
  • Leather upholstery

FOX Racing ShoxFord F-150 Raptor

A bit on the wild side, the F-150 Raptor will roar into 2018 after turning so many heads in 2016 and 2017. This model sports a world of features that maximize what you can do off the beaten path.

This is your go-to for an off-road truck that needs to bring excellence in every aspect of performance.

Make a statement with the FORD block letter grille, and surge forward with the high-output 3.5L V6 EcoBoost engine and off-road FOX Racing Shox.

Ford F-150 King Ranch

Can a truck be handsome? Don't answer that, until you've seen the new Ford F-150 King Ranch trim level in person. Jumping to this model brings you more power, more style, and more gizmos to play with - all wrapped in a bit more country.

King Ranch drivers get a 5.0L Ti-VCT V8 engine. They get the Caribou mesh insert in their chrome surrounded grille. And they get the B&O Play Premium Audio System with HD radio.

Not convinced? Check this out:

  • Surround view camera
  • Adaptive cruise control with forward collision warnings
  • LED headlights and taillights with automatic high beams
  • Automated parallel parking system

Ford F-150 Platinum

I don't know how to tell you it still gets better, but it does.

Say hello to the F-150 Platinum. Take all the best features of the XL, the XLT, the Lariat, and the King Ranch, and seal them into one helluva truck with this gorgeous Ford.

The Blind Spot Information System with cross-traffic alerts brings you state-of-the-art signals and warnings about the road around you and how to stay safe.

Here's some other things to look for, but really - this is one you need to see to believe:

  • 20-inch wheels
  • Power-deployable running boards
  • Aluminum interior trim
  • Leather seats
  • Leather-wrapped, heated steering wheel
