Ford Introduces the 2023 F-150 Rattler

The new 2023 Ford F-150 Rattler is your base truck with all the off-roading goodies


  • The Rattler is about rugged off-road capabilities.

  • It is based on the XL with the FX4 package.

  • The Rattler will feature unique exterior highlights including rattlesnake-inspired graphics.


There’s little doubt the new Rattler version of the 2023 Ford F-150 will be a hit. The genius behind the Rattler is that it will be based on the base XL trim to which will be added all the desirable off-roading goodies.

“Our new F-150 Rattler offers aspiring adventurers an off-road option with expressive looks and capability in one package,” said Todd Eckert, Ford truck group marketing manager. “This truck builds off the F-150 off-road legacy while allowing us to introduce new customers to the right blend of styling and value in the F-150 lineup.”

As far as the kit is concerned, the Rattler will feature the FX4 package. This means that skid plates, an electronic rear locking differential, hill descent control, specially tuned off-road shock absorbers, and rugged all-terrain tires on special 18-inch wheels will all be included.

Visually, the Rattler will be distinguishable by unique badging on the fender vents, rattlesnake-inspired graphics, and a dual exhaust system. The cabin will get burnished bronze accents which will contrast nicely with the available exterior colours, namely Oxford White, Avalanche, Iconic Silver, Carbonized Gray, Antimatter Blue, Stone Gray, Agate Black, and Rapid Red TriCoat.

There’s no word yet on the powertrain but we assume the EcoBoost 2.7-litre V6 will get the nod. The 2023 F-150 Rattler goes on sale this fall. Pricing will likely be announced closer to the launch date. A 4×4 2022 F-150 XL Super Crew with the 2.7T retails for just under $45,000 US.
