What's new for 2023?

The Ford F-150 gives you a new Rattler trim that will take you a long way off-road in style. It's based on the XLF X4 and it adds new 18-inch wheels, hill descent control, a dual-exhaust system, a linking rear differential and off-road suspension. The Rattler has been positioned within the Ford F-150 lineup to offer a more affordable choice for buyers who want off-road capability but don't want to spend all the money required for a Tremor or a Raptor model.

2023 Ford F-150 trim levels

The Ford F-150 gives buyers in Rockdale and Hearn, TX a total of nine trim levels to choose from:

  • XL
  • XLT
  • Rattler
  • Heritage Edition
  • Lariat
  • Tremor
  • King Ranch
  • Platinum
  • Limited

The 2023 Ford F-150 is available with so many different body styles in bed lengths you can practically custom-design one for yourself. The XLT is a good step up from the basic XL work truck and the Lariat model gives you a good mid-range choice. Buyers in Franklin and College Station TX will get a nice blend of features and affordability.

Engines in the new 2023 Ford F-150

For 2023, the Ford F-150 offers a variety of excellent engine choices.

Towing and payload capability
