XTR Package on the Ford F-150, What Is It?
The F-series XTR package has been around for a few years now, but what exactly is it? Aside from the decal on the side of the box, there are a few more components of the XTR Package.
For starters, it is only available on the XLT trim. It comes standard with the 302A package (which includes features like heated seats and a sliding rear window). However, it is an option if you opt for the base XLT or the middle, 301A package. It includes a decal that says "XTR" and either "4X2" or "4X4". The rest of the additions to the truck involve making it shine with chrome accents. These include:
- 6" chrome running boards.
- Front chrome tow hooks (on the 4X4 variant of the F-150).
- Chrome door and tailgate handles.
- Single tip Chrome exhaust
- Chrome two-bar style grille
- 18" chrome like PVD wheels.
- Paired with either 265/60R18 BSW A/S (4×2) or 275/65R18 OWL A/S A/T (4×4) tires.
Sometimes you may see the truck with 20" wheels and 275/55R20 A/T OWL (4X2) or 275/55R20 BSW A/T (4X4) and tires.
The XTR package is only available on the XLT F-150. However, a similar package is offered on the Lariat F-150. There is an alternative available for the Super Duty too.
For the Lariat, the package is called the Lariat Chrome Appearance Package. It features many of the same components of the XTR package, with the exception of the decal. Additionally, the Lariat gets chrome mirror caps.
For the Super Dutys, the XLT package available that is most similar to the XTR package is called the XLT Premium package. Again, it does not feature decals, however it makes up for it with additional features like fog lamps, an 8-way heated driver seat, and reverse sensing system.
