We (or maybe just I) am learning new things this week. I now feel much more confident in my decision to pursue a Platinum, as the KR's I have seen (chrome and not-chrome) so far are not for me. I think I may skip the work space option sure to loss of arm space and, if those are max recline, with that pillow-top seat, those are off the list too.

I think I have learned some more about the King Ranch Front Seats, and I think there is a third seat style we have not seen yet, but my assumptions will be impossible to confirm until some KR 600A package trucks are built and seen by the public. The above pictures appear to be showing the Max Recline Seats. I think most of the other pictures/renderings that Ford has published either showed these same Max Recline Seats, or they showed the optional "Multi-Contour with Active Motion" seats that are part of the 601A package, or standard on the the Platinum and Limited. It think the base King Ranch (600A), if ordered without the optional Max Recline seats will have the seats from the Lariat, just using the Java/Tan leather. The cushioning is slightly different on the seat bottom and very different in the shoulder area. The Lariat seats do not look quite as plush, and do not have that look of a premium piece of furniture, they just look like regular high back car/truck seats. It's almost pushing me to change my order to get the Max Recline seats, but I hate the thought of an indefinite delay. And I do not want the 601A package, because of the electric running boards, so I'm pretty sure I'm going to have Lariat seat cushions in Java/Tan when I get my truck. A little disappointing, but I'm sure they'll be fine.

First real life look at a white 2021 F-150 -- Star White, Oxford White or Space White. My guess is on Star White or Oxford White as Space White usually shows as a very light gray.

I beleive this is a photo of the non-lay down seat in the KR. Doesn't seem to have that big upper wing.

I am 99.9% sure those seats are the 601A Package Multi-Contour seats with motion/massage, because the cushions look identical to the pictures of the Platnium and Limited seats, and the multi-contour motion seats are standard on Platnium and Limited.

There is a chance that the standard 600A KR seats will have the same cushions, and just not have the motion / massage feature, but it is also possible that they will just give the 600A package trucks Lariat seats with Java/Tan leather.

I don't think we'll know until some 600A trucks are built.

But I think the above seats are the nicest looking, and most comfortable looking of all three styles, I'm just not willing to pony up for 601A and put up with electronic running boards to get them.

In second place on looks I'd put the max recline seats, and list the Lariat seats as 3rd place, looking just like regular high-back truck/car seats. But who knows, they may be the most comfortable to some people, including me, everyone likes a different feel, and right now all we have to go on are the appearance.

I think I would be happy with either, as long as they are as comfortable as my 18 was.

Why don't you like the deploying running boards?

A.) They break like all electronic actuated systems, and when they do they are expensive to fix/replace. This will be my wife's daily driver, and she is 5'4", and will not be able to climb in without running boards, so I will hear big complaints and will have to fix them as soon as they break.

B.) The regular running boards actually protect the truck from some door dings, as they are the widest point of the body. You can still get door dings from other high vehicles like other trucks, but car doors are pretty much going to beat up against the running board instead of your aluminum body. The electronic boards when retracted offer no such protection.

C.) I am extremely cheap, a bit counterintuitive for someone buying a KR, but at $1200, or part of a $4500 package, electronic running boards are a hard pass for me.

For some reason I didn't see both pictures when I replied, but I think the top picture shows the multi-contour seats with active motion that are standard in the KR 601A, Platnium, and Limited. The second picture shows the optional max recline seats.

I hear ya, I'm not tall either, 5'-7" and getting older, so I need that assist in a 4X4. The retractable come down more than the fix ones, so more usable. They are a must for me and my wife. Never have had any issues but 3 years is about as long as I have kept a vehicle. Most were much shorter than that but my trucks I seem to keep in the 2-3 year range. Trying to work on that and add a year or two more to that. Lol

Maybe my mind is playing tricks on me, but is this a 6.5’ bed? Caught this on a YouTube video (still shot). Assuming XLT 302A?

Caught these these morning running around town. The Bronco Raptor (or Warthog) looks menacing even in disguise!

First time we've seen a real life standard Lariat. Sharp looking truck!
