This adds quite a few upgrades and features to the pickup, such as beefed-up mechanical components, a supercharged engine, and exclusive interior and exterior graphics. This vehicle can be identified by its exclusive “R” graphics in Code Orange interspersed throughout the vehicle’s exterior and interior.
The Rattler, meanwhile, builds on the Ford F-150 XL trim, outfitting the entry level pickup with off-road elements at a more affordable price. It features Rattler badging, rattlesnake-inspired graphics, painted 18-inch wheels and a dual exhaust system. Inside the cabin, the F-150 Rattler comes equipped with Onyx seats finished with burnished bronze accents and stitching, which matches the same style of trim on the instrument panel. This package proved so popular, it has already sold out for the 2023 model year.
