As Ford Authority reported earlier this week, the 2022 Ford F-150 will be gaining both an XLT Black Appearance Package and an STX Black Appearance Package. Now, sources familiar with the 2022 F-150 launch have confirmed to Ford Authority that a Lariat Black Appearance Package will be also available for Ford’s perenially best-selling pickup, though we currently don’t have any photos of what this package might look like.
The 2022 Ford F-150 Lariat Black Appearance Package is optional on Lariat High (502A) trimmed trucks, and is only available in conjunction with the Lariat Sport Appearance Package, SuperCrew configuration, and 145-inch wheelbase. The package is not available with Ford’s Continuously Controlled Damping feature, nor in conjunction with FoMoCo’s 3.5L EcoBoost V6 and two-wheel drive – only four-wheel drive with that particular powerplant.
On the outside, the Lariat Black Appearance Package consists of 20-inch gloss black-painted aluminum wheels, black 6-inch angular step bars, black bodyside decals (four-wheel drive and FX4 Off-Road Package only), black exterior badging, black headlamp bezels, dark-tinted taillamps, a dual exhaust with black tips (four-wheel drive and 3.5L EcoBoost Engine only), a matte black “F-150” tailgate decal, and a unique hood and grille with black accents. Additionally, power-deployable running boards with black accents are also available as an option.
Inside, F-150 Lariat models equipped with the Black Appearance Package also feature black interior appliques, as well as black finishes on the console, door trim, and instrument panel.
The Lariat, STX, and XLT Black Appearance Packages for the 2022 Ford F-150 join the existing Black Appearance Packages already available on the Ford Ranger and the Ford EcoSport SES, as Ford Authority previously reported, along with the Lariat Black Appearance Package for the 2021 Ford Super Duty. The blacked-out look has only grown in popularity in recent years, so these likely won’t be the last such packages Ford offers, either.
