Over the past several months, Ford Authority has spotted a large number of 2024 Ford F-150 pickups out testing, a list that includes the base XL trim, Tremor, Lariat, Platinum, Raptor, Raptor R, a Heritage Edition, an XLT with the STX Package, and a Platinum with the optional Black Appearance Package, among others. Now, that list continues to grow, as Ford Authority just spotted a 2024 Ford F-150 Lariat finished in Rapid Red, giving us yet another look at the forthcoming refreshed pickup.
Unlike the previously-spied Lariat model – which was seemingly equipped with the optional Black Appearance Package – this pickup is instead adorned with more traditional chrome trim present on the bumpers, front grille, side mirrors, door handles, and various other trim pieces. It’s also a four-wheel drive model complete with the box side decal, and is equipped with fixed side steps, to boot.
There are a number of notable updates coming for the refreshed and simplified 2024 Ford F-150, as Ford Authority has reported over the past several months. In addition to new headlights and taillights and a revised front grille, that list includes some new features for the STX Package, new 22-inch wheels and an available modular front bumper, as well as a possible backlit Ford badge in the front grille, and a potential multi-function tailgate.
Inside the cabin, we’ve come across both horizontal and vertical infotainment screens in a revised layout that will somewhat emulate the all-new 2023 Ford Super Duty, and those changes could be joined by debut of the long-rumored Google-based infotainment system rather than the typical Sync-based software, though that detail remains unclear at this time. The 2024 F-150 is set to debut at the upcoming 2023 Detroit Auto Show this September, as Ford Authority recently reported, and it will be joined there by a new hybrid variant of the pickup as well.
