2023 Ford F-150 Face-Off: Lariat Vs. Platinum

The Ford F-150 is an iconic truck that has made its mark as the all-time favorite for a large population of half-ton truck lovers. With a wide range of powertrain options, trim levels, and specifications, there’s always an F-150 that matches every shopper’s style, needs, and budget.

The F-150 has remained the bestseller among its rivals for quite a long time, making the 2023 Ford F-150 lease deal very popular in New York. However, most shoppers aren’t conversant with the truck’s trim offerings. This article compares the Lariat and Platinum models to help shoppers make an informed choice.


The 2023 Ford F-150 comes in eight trim levels, and the Lariat model is its third trim. The Lariat introduces upgraded features like 18-inch wheels, a high-tech digital driver’s display, ambient lighting, leather upholstery, and lots more. It also replaces the standard 8.0-inch infotainment display with a more extensive touchscreen. The F-150 Lariat’s standard engine is a twin-turbocharged 2.7-liter V-6 that pumps out 325 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. However, shoppers can still opt for the available 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V-6 with 400 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque or a hybrid powertrain making 430 hp and 570 pound-feet of torque. Here are the key features the Lariat trim unlocks.

  • Intelligent access with push-button start
  • 18-inch chrome-like PVD wheels
  • Power-folding side mirrors
  • Leather-trimmed seats
  • Heated and ventilated front seats
  • Auto-dimming side mirror (driver’s side)
  • LED mirror-mounted spotlights
  • Black leather-wrapped steering wheel
  • Dual-zone electronic automatic temperature control
  • 0-inch fully digital gauge display
  • Ambient lighting
  • 0-inch touchscreen infotainment display

Shoppers looking to take things to another level can select from a pool of optional features, including a twin-panel moonroof, heated rear seats, Ford BlueCruise, and a 400-hp 5.0-liter V-8 with 410 lb-ft.


The Platinum is the F-150’s fifth trim, and it offers quite a suite of next-level features for the money. It also delivers upgraded versions of virtually all the standard features from lower trims. Here, the 400-hp 5.0-liter V-8 is standard, while the 400-hp V6 and hybrid engine are optional. Highlights of the 2023 F-150 Platinum include.

  • 360-degree camera package
  • Intelligent adaptive cruise control
  • 20-inch polished aluminum wheels
  • Intersection Assist
  • LED headlamps with dynamic bending
  • 400w power outlet
  • Power deployable running boards
  • Unique, genuine wood interior trim accents
  • Heated steering wheel
  • Power tilt/telescoping steering wheel with memory
  • Universal garage door opener
  • Wireless charging pad
  • Heated rear seats
  • Rain-sensing windshield wipers

Both models are available as rear- or all-wheel drive. When properly equipped, they can tow up to 14,000 pounds, with a max payload capacity of 3250 pounds.

Review From Ashley Smith: This was my first experience using a leasing company. In the past, I leased my cars directly through the dealership and always felt that I didn’t receive a fair price. I had such a pleasant experience with VIP Auto Lease from the first time I called to when my car was delivered. Michael Jeffries was a pleasure to work with. He was very responsive and able to get me a great deal. He made the leasing process smooth and easy. I was so impressed there were no hidden fees and that the car was delivered right to my house! I will definitely use VIP Auto Lease again in the future! Thank you again!
