How is Ford changing the F-150 XL for 2023?
Ford had to remove several modern features from its 2022 F-150 XL to maintain the truck’s $29,000 MSRP. Now that the automaker is increasing the price of the truck, it can afford to add basic amenities like power windows and door locks.

Even in 2022, the Ford F-150 XL offered a lot of value for its low price. It beat out the competition with an 8-inch touchscreen, cloth seats, Ford Sync4, and even some Co-Pilot360 features. The F-150 XL also had selectable drive modes, a shift-on-the-fly transfer case, 10-speed automatic transmission, and even headlights that come on automatically when you activate the wipers.
But it was also missing some modern features. So even though the truck had automatic emergency braking, it didn’t even have cruise control. And of course, electric windows and locks are at an additional cost. By 2023, Ford is making the base F-150 XL comfort package, with power windows and locks, as well as cruise control, standard on every truck.
In addition, Ford will offer a new off-road package for the XL.
