2015 Ford F-150 XL vs F-150 XLT Trims

If you’re in the market for a pickup truck that is a real workhorse, but can also be used as a daily commuter, then the 2015 Ford F-150 is an obvious choice. Its innovative high-strength aluminum body helps it drop up to 700 lbs., helping it be the best in its class at towing, payload, and fuel efficiency. Plus, not having to worry about body rust? That’s the cherry on top.

The Most difficult decision is deciding between the various trim levels available on the 2015 F-150. To help you out, we’ve put together a comparison of the 2015 Ford F-150 XL vs F-150 XLT Trims. These are the two lower-tiered trims, but they’re still going to give you lots of features and options. Cab styles like Regular, SuperCab, and SuperCrew models are available for both of them. Three box styles are also available, which measure at 5.5’, 6.5’ and 8’.

Differences between the 2015 Ford F-150 XL and XLT Trims

If you’re planning on using the truck bed to haul a lot, it might be worth to upgrade to the XLT trim for the Ford F-150. They both come in the same lengths, but the XLT has an optional bed extender feature to give  you some extra room. Other convenient features like remote vehicle start are available on the XLT, but not on the XL.

Still, both are going to come with all the necessities, and the nice thing about the XL is that if you’re not into a particular feature (like Bluetooth) then you don’t need to upgrade to it. They’re also both ready for letting a first time driver behind the wheel, thanks to Ford MyKey. With this safety device, you can set certain restrictions for when your teen gets behind the wheel, and it will let you keep track of their driving -- making sure they’re being safe.

The most important features about the F-150 are intact in both of these trucks: the payload and towing capacities are amazing, and the fuel efficiency can’t be matched by another truck in its class.
