Serving Richardson, TX

In 2022, the popular F-150 is available in six standard trim levels and two off-road trims. Across these options, you can choose between three cab styles and three-bed lengths. With various powertrains and optional packages available as well, you can feel confident that there is an F-150 truck that is perfect for you. The XLT and Lariat trims take the second and third spots in the trim lineup, and they are popular options among many of our customers at North Central Ford. How do these trims stack up in a detailed comparison?


The 2022 Ford F-150 XLT has a 3.3-liter, Ti-VCT V6 engine under its hood. This 290-horsepower engine combines a 10-speed auto transmission that features SelectShift with Progressive Range Select. The 2022 F-150 Lariat, on the other hand, comes with a 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 engine. It is a 325-horsepower system with the same transmission you will find in the XLT.


Visually, both the F-150 XLT and Lariat trims are similar in most ways. They both show off the confident design and bold stance the F-150 is known for. The XLT trim has trailer sway control, pre-wired trailer connections, 17-inch aluminum wheels, a power-locking tailgate, and foglights. The Lariat trim builds on the equipment that is available in the XLT. It adds 18-inch aluminum wheels, LED bed lighting, and a Class IV trailer hitch.


Opt for the 2022 Ford F-150 XLT. Your full-size truck will have a single-zone AC system, an 8-inch touch display screen in the center stack, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, forward collision mitigation, a lane departure warning, power door locks, power windows, a blind-spot monitor, rear auto braking and lane-keep assistance. The Lariat gives you a few additional features. These are leather upholstery, remote start, remote tailgate release, a 12-inch touch display screen, heated and powered front seats, power-adjusting pedals, and a dual-zone auto climate control system.
