Explaining Ford’s Most Popular F-150 Trim Level

July 5th, 2017 by

It’s time for yet another edition of the Laird Noller Super Blog! We are introducing a new series to our Super Blog to help car buyers in Kansas identify what the best Ford is for them and how Ford’s stack up with their competitors. The great thing about Ford is that their vehicles are very customizable. What we mean by that is there are different trim levels for each vehicle but inside of that are different package codes, also called PEP Codes, which includes a package of options. The higher the PEP code the more features and gadgets your Ford will have. (And who doesn’t love gadgets?) But also on top of that you can order individual options to make the vehicle fit you and your family’s needs perfect. If you have more specific questions on the F-150 XLT please feel free to contact us HERE!

The F-150 has several different trim levels and we will delve deeper into those later this week but we wanted to focus on the most popular option today. The XLT 302a package is the most popular 2017 F-150 package. It accounts for nearly 50% of Ford’s F-150 sales which is why we want to inform Kansas Ford Truck buyers on this package! This package is above the XL, which is the more base work truck with less features, and right below the Lariat series which starts with the leather interior. It comes with all the features people are looking for and always comes at a great price too because Ford heavily incentives these F-150’s to move with large rebates in Kansas.

Why do people love the Ford F-150 XLT 302A?


-SYNC 3 (Ford’s new infotainment system with Apple Car Play and Android Auto) Be able to sync up your phone and make telephone calls, send texts, have texts read to you and oh so much more!

-Premium Cloth seats (We find a lot of truck buyers prefer the premium cloth to leather because it is more durable and easier to keep clean)

-Power Sliding Rear Window (Who doesn’t love that)

-Heated Seats (Especially important for Kansas winters – it comes we 3 different levels of heat and both the driver and passenger seat is heated)

-Remote Start (Starting your car remotely both in the Winter and Summer can cool or heat your F-150 XLT before you get into it to make it a much more enjoyable ride)

-Rear Window Defroster – Once again, another must in the Kansas winters

-110v/400W outlet on the front dash so you can plug in an iPad or basically anything with a 2 or 3 prong plug so you can charge up.

-And last but not least – The box Link system and LED bed lighting- What the F-150 Box Link system give you are 4 cleats on the sides of the bed so you can easily tie down cargo that you are worried about shifting when the truck is moving. Also, the F-150 LED Bed Lighting lights up the truck bed so you can work in the dark.


All of those reasons and features are why this F-150 is the bestselling trim level in a line that has dominated the Truck marketplace for 40 straight years.
