2023 Ford F-150 Lineup Will Retain 2022 Feature Removals

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.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.

    Am I to understand according to this article ‘2023 F-150 Lineup’ that the King Ranch will no longer be built??

  2. Dan

    F150 King Ranch is 100% still available in 2023. It won’t have the Multi-Contour seats though.

  3. TomF

    Did I read.the article right? The Limited trim will only come with the hybrid and 4WD?

  4. Jose Domingo Villarreal

    For the introductive 2023 F-150 Heritage Edition, Ford should consider an incentive APR of 1.9 for 60 months. Also, as a retro-inspired tribute to the Iconic pictureup past, Ford should reflect upon some pricing from yester-year that includes up to date tech features.

    Well that makes it easy – was going to turn in my 2017 F-150 Platinum for the 2023 (my 3rd Platinum F-150) … NO contour seats?! – I’ll keep the 2017 … its all about the hips and back on long drives
