2020 Ford F-150 XLT vs 2020 Ford F-150 Lariat

Serving Seneca, SC

The F-150 is Ford’s full-size truck that has been preferred for its style and capabilities for decades. Now that you are ready to upgrade to your next F-150, you need to decide which of the 2020 model year’s trims is a good match for you. The XLT and the Lariat are mid-level trims that sit next to each other in the lineup. However, their base MSRP and many of their standard features differ dramatically.


The standard engine in the 2020 Ford F-150 XLT is a Ti-VCT V6, a 3.3-liter engine with a 10-speed electronic transmission. This engine produces 290 horsepower. The F-150 Lariat’s standard engine, on the other hand, is an EcoBoost V6, 2.7-liter engine. It comes with the same transmission and delivers 325 horsepower behind the wheel. Both of these Ford F-150 trim levels are available with several of the same alternative engines. Some of these are the 3.0-liter Power Stroke, V6 turbo-diesel engine, and the Ti-VCT V8, 5.0-liter engine.


The 2020 Ford F-150 has a commanding presence with toned surfaces from end to end. The XLT and the Lariat both have a chrome-accented bumper with a horizontal bar theme across the grille. One of their subtle differences throughout the exterior is in their wheels. The 2020 F-150 XLT has 17-inch silver-painted wheels as standard equipment, and the Lariat has 18-inch machined-aluminum wheels. Both of these trims are available with several wheel options that are between 18 and 20 inches. Both trim levels have daytime running lights, a 170-degree rear door, a power-locking tailgate, and other equipment.


Differences between the 2020 Ford F-150 XLT and the F-150 Lariat extend to their features. Both of these versions have MyKey, Ford Co-Pilot360 safety features, cruise control, SYNC 3, Ford Pass Connect with a wireless hotspot, and a few other features. The Lariat also comes with an auto-dimming rear mirror, ambient lighting, woodgrain accents, an 8-inch touch display screen, and several additional safety features.
