The Lariat trim level includes an engine upgrade to a 2.7L V6 capable of 325 HP and 400 lb.-ft torque. It also comes with a 10-speed transmission, a step up from the XLT’s 6-speed transmission. The Lariat’s interior is characterized by its wood grain style and leather-trimmed seats and steering wheel. Another feature is the 10-way power, heated/ventilated front seats that ensure comfort in any season. If you are considering an F-150 that is a step-up from the no frills of the XLT, then the Lariat is the perfect option for you.
