Exploring the Ford Ranger Trim Levels

It’s no secret that when you look around the streets of La Mesa, you see more than a few Ford trucks. When you consider the power and quality associated with the Ford brand, it’s not really that surprising, either.

Ford trucks have tremendous towing and hauling power, excellent fuel efficiency, and a suite of safety engineering practices that make them not just tough and powerful, but durable and reliable as well. When shopping for a truck, the question of trim levels will come up, but this term is a bit confusing.

Basically, trim levels are branded feature packages which can add additional aesthetic and functional features to the vehicle. Ford has been a big supporter of choice when it comes to your vehicle, allowing you to get what you want and need, and not anything you don’t.

At Penske Ford La Mesa, we believe in keeping customers informed, so allow us to go over the three trim levels offered for the Ford Ranger.

To kick things off, the XL, XLT and Lariat all share the same engine, transmission and drivetrain. Drivers around El Cajon will enjoy the 2.3L EcoBoost® Engine that produces 270 horsepower and 310 lb.-ft. of torque. The Ranger improves efficiency with auto start-stop technology that turns off the engine to save fuel when your truck comes to a complete stop.

Things between the XL, XLT and Lariat begin to differ when you look at exterior features and interior features.

  • XL: The XL features a manual locking tailgate, black vinyl floor covering, and a 2.3" Productivity Screen
  • XLT: The XLT features a power locking tailgate, multiple grille options, colored carpet with floor mats, and a 4.2" Productivity Screen
  • Lariat: The Lariat upgrades many features available on the XL and XLT. This trim feature dual 4.2" Productivity Screens, and power-folding side mirrors with integrated turn signal and security approach lights

The Ford Ranger offers a lot of great customization and features, and we're sure there's a trim level for everyone in the greater Chula Vista, San Diego and Santee area. Stop by our dealership to test drive a new Ranger today.
