Ford is offering a "Rattler" edition of the F-150. Basically ax XL with "some"FX4 stuff, with a wheel/tire package, & dual exhaust. They call it a "value play". Will the Ranger and/or Maverick get a "Rattler" edition. Not that we need ANOTHER off road variant of either.

  • The Ford F-150 Rattler opens the door for an entry-level off-roading pickup.
  • The truck is a base-model XL pickup that features FX4 hardware such as skid plates and off-road suspension.
  • Ford F-150 Rattler's appearance package comes with 18-inch alloy wheels, fender vents and dual exhaust.

That's it. That's the one 👆

Is it worth the effort?

Keep your mind like an umbrella, it only works if its open... Continually learning.
I guess the manufacturer thinking is if they make more packages there will be less special order vehicles.

You couldn’t get Fx4 on an XL?

I don't think it's the full FX4 package. the description said "some of the equipment" of the FX4 package. So it's like a stripped down Tremor as far as I can tell. I get so confused as to what equipment comes with a trim and then add on packages which basically makes it almost the same as the next trim up. Especially when it comes to "off road" stuff. I think @dvdswan may have answered my "Is it worth it" question.

Aperently Dodge has a similar product already out. I forget what they called it but it gets Special Black Wheels with some Aggressive tread Tires.

If they do it like the Ranger, you have to get the STX package in order to get the FX4 package.
