Ford Unveils the Rugged F-150 ‘Rattler', a New Off-Road Package for its Best Selling Truck

There is a lot of buzz surrounding the launch of the new battery-powered F-150 Lightning. But automaker Ford has two other hits with the rugged new Bronco SUV and Maverick hybrid pickup truck. Now the automaker has revealed an new entry-level off-road package for the popular gas-powered F-150 called "Rattler".

F-150 Rattler is targeted at adventure-seeking customers looking for a stylish truck with standard four-wheel drive for exceptional off-road capability, which rival Rivian is trying to cater to with its electric R1T pickup.

The F-150 Rattler package is built off the XL series version of Ford's most popular truck. The automaker added skid plates for a more confident off-road experience. Other features include electronic rear-locking differential  for better off-road traction, hill descent control for precision throttle and braking on steep descents, and specially tuned off-road shock absorbers for increased stability over rough terrain. 

Ford also added standard all-terrain tires for versatility and capability.

"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."

The F-150 Rattler package also features a dual exhaust system for a more aggressive sound,  as well as  painted 18-inch aluminum wheels to give the truck a sporty look. 

Ford also added F-150 Rattler badging on the fender vents and rattlesnake-inspired graphics to complete its bold appearance. Exterior color choices include Oxford White, Avalanche, Iconic Silver, Carbonized Gray, Antimatter Blue, Stone Gray, Agate Black and Rapid Red TriCoat.

The interior features Onyx seats featuring burnished bronze accents and stitching that matches the trim on the instrument panel that keeps with the desert-inspired theme of the new F-150 Rattler. 

Based on its looks and capability, the F-150 Rattler could become a big seller for buyers looking for a rugged and dependable  truck that they can take off-road, even though its not fully-electric.

The 2023 F-150 Rattler goes on sale this fall.
