2023 F150 XL Rattler 3.5Eco
3.5 Ecoboost. XL based Rattler package. Opted out of Trailer Tow Package down to just the class IV hitch. Opted out of console for center bucket seat. Bare bones with options besides that, just what it came with.
sat down to build it in early/mid August at my dealership. Ordered confirmed August 22, 2022. Got Scheduled for Production on October 12, which was scheduled to be built the week of November 14. On October 15th I got my Built email (built at Dearborn, MI), and my dealer (in Maryland) received the truck on Saturday, October 19. Picked it up on Monday. Excited to have it and share images!
I’m very curious as to how there has been next to no hits on Google or YouTube for the Rattler package. I’m not saying it’s groundbreaking; what I’m saying is it‘a a new option that Ford introduced, but there were 0 real world examples being reviewed on the Tube, or even having articles written about their production.
To this point I haven’t seen/heard anyone else taking delivery on their 2023 model year Fords. Additionally, I’ve heard from some folks who wanted to order a Rattler but it was sold out. Never showed as an option under Build and Price because it was sold out before the 23s populated.
I feel guilty saying it, but I’m very fortunate to have had such a quick process when other people ordered countless other vehicles (even other XL’s) last year and they are still waiting (I know of at least one person in that XL boat, confirmed).
I’d love to shed insight on it and have some conversation to see what other people’s thoughts are about the package and the lack of publicity/information.

Congratulations!

No need to feel any 'guilt' just because Ford delivered for you (the luck of good timing is almost everything ;) )

A bit too 'basic' for me but it looks like a very practical truck, so Kudos! :)

Where did this package fall in the trim line, it looks like an XL except for the wheels and dual exhaust, I'm confused by this model.

Looks so good. Very happy for you but very sad for the rest of us that can’t get one.

Your build is exactly the way I would do it. I just can’t get over how good it looks considering that this particular trim is designed to whoop some serious ass.

Thank you very much for all the photos, you have made my day. You are the man now dog (Sean Connery voice)

Looks great in antimatter! Always loved the colour but didn’t like that you had to get it with chrome or go Tremor/Raptor to remove it. Congrats!

The Rattler package is only available for an XL. The wheels, dual exhaust and badging are the exterior changes unique to this package, and one big reason why I picked it.
The package also includes: 4X4, monotube shocks tuned for off-road, Hill descent control, push-button e-locking rear diff, skid plates underneath the major goodies (similar to Tremor), bronze stitching throughout the interior as well as bronze accents on some dash/door components.

Thanks for pointing me here my dude! I’ll definitely spend some time on here. And you can have carpeted floors with the Rattler, but I asked the salesman to change from carpet to vinyl. I already ordered Husky floor liners to put over it too, and when I get the truck filthy I can take the floor liners out to spray em off, and just vacuum/wipe down the floor. That’s why I chose it.
I was originally going to buy a used XL or XLT, but with how expensive used vehicles were around the time I ordered mine, it made more sense to buy a new truck. So all in all I went for one of the most basic and budget trucks I could find, but this package gave me a work truck that looks much nicer on the outside.
Plus my wife wouldn’t let me spend Tremor money 😭

Awesome truck! Congratulations!
I opted for Class iv hitch on my build. What is the payload and tow ratings on your truck?
