Adding lane departure warnings is also something to consider.
Cab style is open for most of these trims, but the King Ranch model is only available for a SuperCrew cab. This trim takes the base of the Luxury 502A package and builds on it. It focuses on a Western theme for the interior and exterior and punches up the luxury a little. The F-150 Platinum includes larger wheels, an interior aluminum trim, and deployable running boards. The F-150 Limited has the largest wheels yet at 22-inches, unique styling details, wooden interior trim, and a great many of the optional features mentioned above.
Finally, the F-150 Raptor is the most exclusive model. It is similar to the XLT in many of its features, but this vehicle is purpose-built for off-road duty.
