The Ford F-150 - XLT Trim Overview

Considering the Ford F-150 XLT trim? Read on to check out a general overview!

The second trim level of the F-150, the XLT, touts improved features over the standard XL trim along with robust performance functionality and a handful of other notable features. IF you're looking for a trim that offers up more than the base XL, the XLT is an excellent F-150 trim variant to consider.

What does XLT stand for on a Ford truck?

Funnily enough, XLT isn't an acronym for anything, it's simply a trim level signifier.

How does this compare to other trims?

The XLT emphasizes functionality more than comfort or tech. While the XLT comes equipped with an ample array performance features, they're not all that different from the XL trim. Indeed, the XLT comes offers more robust available features but standard equipment is similar to the XL. The XLT trim comes equipped with a standard 3.3-liter V6 engine that touts 290 horsepower and 265 foot-pounds of torque. While the base 3.3.-liter V6 engine can be paired with a ten-speed automatic transmission, it works with a standard six-speed automatic transmission.

What are the differences between an F-150 XLT and a Lariat?

The biggest difference might be the change in powertrain. While the XLT touts a 3.3-liter V6 engine, the Lariat boasts a 2.7-liter V6 engine that manages 325 horsepower and 400 foot-pounds of torque. Other features that skip the XLT but come with the Lariat include: dual-zone automatic climate control, an eight-inch touch screen infotainment display, push-button start, and woodgrain-style interior trim accents.
