2023 Ford F-150 XL vs 2023 Ford F-150 XLT

Serving Grafton, WV

In West Virginia, many drivers have been opting for the full-size Ford F-150 for decades. If you're looking to upgrade to a new F-150, you might be wondering which trim to choose from the nine options available for the 2023 model year. The first two trims are the XL and XLT, both of which come with three bed lengths and SuperCrew, regular, and SuperCab options. To help you make a decision, let's compare the Ford F-150 XL and XLT trims.


Performance-wise, the XL and XLT trims have a V6, 3.3-liter gas engine that delivers 290 horsepower. However, you can opt for one of the mid-range powertrains for improved horsepower and torque. In 2023, the F-150 XL comes with the Rattler off-road package, which is only available in the SuperCab and SuperCrew cab styles. This package includes all-terrain tires, a front differential, a transfer case, and more skid plates. The FX Off-Road package is also available for both trims, adding a drive mode for rock crawling, an off-road suspension, hill descent control, and an electronic locking rear differential.


In terms of appearance, the Ford F-150 has a powerful and dominant design with its broad and tall dimensions and solid definition running across the sides. The front of the truck makes a strong impression with large stacked headlights and a bent LED light ribbon on two sides. The grille is expansive and trends inward slightly at the sides, while the bumper has an upturned look in the center to emphasize the truck's strength. The 2023 F-150 XL comes with 17-inch steel wheels, while the XLT trim offers aluminum wheels, a power-locking tailgate, heated and powered side mirrors, and fog lights.


When it comes to cabin and safety equipment, there are several differences between the XL and XLT trims. The XL comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a single-zone climate management system, a Sync4 infotainment system, an 8-inch central display screen, forward collision mitigation, and a lane departure alert, among other features. The XLT trim builds on these features by adding voice controls for the Sync4 system, lane keeping, rear automatic brakes, and a blind-spot monitor.
