The new generation of Ford’s bestseller has been around for a while and while the latest redesign brought so many interesting novelties, some things remained the same. This includes the trim level organization as well, so the King Ranch continues as a version that brings so many exlusive features, whether it’s about the exterior or interior details, standard equipment, or something third. From what we know so far, the next year won’t bring bigger novelties, so the 2023 Ford F-150 King Ranch will come with familiar design and characteristics.
This means that you may count on a pickup that comes with some exclusive styling details, a nice interior, lots of standards and available equipment etc. You may also count on different customization options, as the truck comes with different engine options on the offer, various optional packages etc.
2023 Ford F-150 King Ranch Design
Design-wise, the 2023 Ford F-150 King Ranch will carry on without more important changes. We are about to see a familiar approach, which includes a couple of exclusive details, which you can’t get in lower trim levels. For example, it comes standard with LED headlights and taillights, while the only cab style you can get is the Super Crew Cab, with two bed sizes on the offer. You can choose between a 5.5- and a 6.5-foot bed.
If you want to get a more exclusive look, keep in mind that this trim level is available with the Chrome Appearance Package. This package includes a lot of interesting styling upgrades, such as chrome bumpers, 20-inch chrome wheels, exclusive King Ranch wheel ornament, chrome door handles, chrome exterior mirrors etc.
The King Ranch isn’t just a fancy-looking pickup. It can also be a pretty capable off-roader if you opt for the optional FX4 Off-Road Package. With this package, you may count on extra features like upgraded suspension with off-road shock absorbers including monotube rear shocks, skid plates, locking differential, hill descent control, skid plates etc.
On the inside, there aren’t many things that are different compared to other trim levels. Still, it’s good to know that the only interior color scheme you can get in this trim is the Jawa scheme. Also, you may count on pretty exclusive, King Ranch bucket seats. Other than that, you may count on a pretty long list of standard equipment.
The list of standard features includes many things, starting from a 12.0-inch infotainment screen. You may also count on things like dual-zone climate control, power-adjustable pedals, power-adjustable front seats with heating and ventilation, heated rear seats, heated steering wheel, power tilt and telescoping steering column, wireless charging, 8-speaker audio system etc.
2023 Ford F-150 King Ranch Engines
Another reason why we find this pickup highly customizable is the powertrain offer. You can choose between three different powertrain options, starting from the good-old Coyote. Of course, we are talking about the 5.0-liter V8, which features a max output of 400 horsepower and 410 pound-feet of torque. The 2023 Ford F-150 King Ranch will also be available with a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6, which also features 400 horsepower but comes with significantly more torque, which goes all-away up to 500 pound-feet.
Finally, there is a hybrid version, also based on the twin-turbo V6. The total output goes up to 430 horsepower, while the max torque is 570 pound-feet. All three engine options come coupled with a 10-speed automatic transmission.
2023 Ford F-150 King Ranch Release Date and Price
As there are no significant changes to come, we presume that the 2023 Ford F-150 King Ranch will hit the market sometime in the last quarter of the year, with a starting price of around 60.000 dollars.
