The 2020 Ford F-250 XLT is a bargain

Our project 2020 Ford F-250 XLT gives you a lot of bang for the buck. In the future, we have some interesting plans for our big Ford. We’ve already put it through a battery of tests, and that will continue. Recently, we updated the exhaust system – which sounds awesome. You can read about that (here).

On top of the XLT trim level, we added the ($2,045) 7.3-Liter gas V8 and the XLT Value Package ($1,600) adding fog lamps and the auto-lock/auto-unlock feature. Base, barebone, standard cab models of the 2020 Ford F-250s start in the mid $30,000-range.

When you add four-wheel drive, a crew cab and amenities, you’ll be in the $40,000-range. That’s still on the lower end model. There are very few extras and things like trim, wheels and tech will take you up to the next (XLT) level.

Tommy doesn’t need a fancy push-button starter!

On top of the XL basic options the XLT gets you:

  • Higher end wheel and tire package
  • Chrome accents
  • BLIS (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert and Trailer Tow
  • Lane-Keeping Alert
  • Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB)
  • SYNC- 3

The trims range from the base model XL to the luxurious Limited; our XLT is on the bargain end of the spectrum.

Our truck’s MSRP is $55,805. While that is a lot of dough, it’s surprisingly good for a truck in this class. You can easily spend over $80,000 for one loaded with bells and whistles.

And THAT’S the point of this video –

Tommy takes you on a tour of the vehicle and explains why, for many of us, the XLT trim is the way to go. In this opinion, this truck gives you everything you need, without unnecessary add-ons.
