The upcoming 2024 Ford F-150 Lariat will go on sale next summer, most likely with a mid-cycle facelift. It is the most likely outcome, for a couple of reasons. The F-150 model is the best-selling truck in the US, and Lariat is one of the most popular trim levels.
The first spy shots are here, although the spied prototype is Lariat trim level with the Sport Appearance Package. Despite that, cosmetic upgrades are visible. The interior should receive a couple of important updates too. On the other hand, nothing will change under the hood.
Ford F-150 Lariat Spy Photos
Ford provides new-gen models every six years. Since the F-150 truck introduced a new generation in 2021, it is time for the first mid-cycle refresh. The 2024 Ford F-150 Lariat has been spotted recently, doing its first road tests. Lariat is a well-known trim level, but this prototype wears Sport Appearance Package. Still, many upgrades are visible at first glance. The heavy camouflage does not help, but some parts are still easy to spot. The shape seems to be the same and the side profile shows zero upgrades.
This means the Blue Oval carmaker will focus on the front and rear sections. Reportedly, Ford works on a new multifunction tailgate. Ram and General Motors already did a similar thing. Whatsoever, Ford already filed a patent for a multifunction tailgate earlier this year. The front fascia is completely disguised, but we expect to see nice improvements on the front grille and headlights.
The interior will almost certainly introduce a couple of upgrades. However, spy shots didn’t provide visual evidence. The 2024 Ford F-150 Lariat will reportedly gain a new infotainment system. This system will be powered by Google and it will be available in Ford’s future SUVs and trucks.
The Ford F-150 Lightning model will be the first model to offer this type of infotainment. Naturally, Ford will deliver additional updates, but we don’t know which updates are on the way, unfortunately.
What is Lariat Trim Level?
The 2024 Ford F-150 Lariat will be a mid-range trim level. It slots above the entry-level XL and XLT variants, and below King Ranch. It is a very popular trim level because it offers leather upholstery, LED headlights, improved air conditioning, and much more. The Sport Appearance Package is also a popular option among customers.
Spied prototypes provide body-colored bumpers, various accents, a side decal, a dark grille, and 18-inch wheels. On top of that, you can opt for 20-inch six-spoke wheels as well. The interior is very unique with bucket seats, a distinctive shifter, and a flow-through console. Lastly, Lariat trim comes with dark gray accents and power running boards, all as standard.
