As The Blue Oval works toward simplifying its ICE lineup, the 2023 Ford F-150 has been subject to quite a few changes. The Limited is no longer offered with two-wheel-drive and the Ford 3.5L V6 EcoBoost engine, which were previously standard. Instead, four-wheel-drive is now standard on this trim, as is the Ford 3.5L V6 PowerBoost hybrid.
Additionally, the 2023 F-150 lineup will also gains three new variants for the new model year. This includes the retro-inspired Heritage Edition, the entry level off-road-focused Rattler and the supercharged V8-powered 2023 Ford F-150 Raptor R. The F-150 Tremor has also undergone multiple changes, featuring the naturally aspirated Ford 5.0L V8 Coyote engine as standard as opposed to the Ford 3.5L V6 EcoBoost powerplant.
