The 2023 Ford F-150 lineup is set to gain a few new models – including the Rattler, Heritage Edition, and Ford F-150 Raptor R – as well as a few changes in terms of equipment for the XL, Tremor, and Limited trims. Now, sources familiar with the matter have told Ford Authority that the 2023 Ford F-150 lineup will carry over some production updates made to the 2022 model as a result of the chip shortage and other supply chain constraints, at least as it pertains to a few feature removal options.
First, the 2023 Ford F-150 will retain its Multicontour seat with Active Motion Removal – option code 91X – which is required for models that would have otherwise included the seats, though buyers get a $300 credit for that deletion. The same goes for Active Park Assist 2.0 Removal, or option code 67X, which provides a $365 credit. As far as Auto Start-Stop Removal, or option code 52X, it is now a freestanding option throughout the lineup that results in a $50 credit, which is not required, but possibly included as a way to speed up deliveries.
However, at least for now, it seems as if the 2023 Ford F-150 lineup will regain a pair of options that were previously dropped due to the chip shortage and other supply chain constraints – the Ford Co-Pilot Assist 2.0 package (option code 43B), plus Connected Navigation and Connected Built-In Navigation.
In addition to these changes, the F-150 Tremor will now come standard with the Ford 5.0L V8 Coyote engine instead of the 3.5L V6 EcoBoost powerplant, while the F-150 Limited has ditched two-wheel drive and the 3.5L V6 EcoBoost in favor of standard four-wheel drive and the PowerBoost hybrid. The XL, F-150 Raptor, and F-150 Tremor have all nixed their entry-level Equipment Groups as well, making each a bit more expensive but better equipped for the new model year.
