If Dodge and Chev can option out a cloth interior truck with push button start, heated steering wheel and dual zone climate control then Ford sure as f...k can.
That you currently have to get a 502A or higher package to get a heated steering wheel is a joke.
Call it a convenience package, luxury package.....whatever.
If Ford hasn't improved the packages and redone the interior by the time warranty is up in 2 years(I have the decal cold rattle which doesn't inspire confidence in engine durability) then I cant see me driving another F150.
Toyota.....Dodge....who knows

If it is that important to you, then I don't blame you. I've owned Dodge and Chevy. Good trucks. But the Ford is just a notch above. I wouldn't buy a Toyota if they were the only OEM making trucks.

Toyota?!?!? if you think fords playing hardball with their option packs theres no way you'd be satisfied with a toyota. You'd be paying the same as a 502A lariat but have at least half the options if not more.
The f150 is the best selling truck and until they get dethroned they're doing everything right imo.

I love my keyed ignition, but I agree. Keyless should be standard across the board, even in XL's. So should 4A. I can see Ford not only touting the more premium aspects of 4A for it's entire trim lineup, but bragging on the increased safety 4A provides. You could make the same argument for adaptive cruise. The funny thing is, someday all these things (and more) will be standard in even XL trucks. Due to competition, all car manufacturers have to keep raising the bar or at least meet the bar. It wasn't too long ago that things like power steering, power brakes or even a radio were options. A/C wasn't even an option you could order in lot of cases, now it's on every vehicle.

Someday we WILL see XL trucks with keyless start, 4A, LED headlights, BLIS, adaptive cruise, 360 deg cameras, etc. It's just a matter of how many years down the road.
Yeah, i got a steal of a deal, the truck had a lot of incentives. Bought in June of 2016.

I'd love to see a delete option for the giant aluminum tailgate decals on the Platinum/Limited trims.

LOL...they sell a lot of trucks so they are doing it right....ok
Keeping up with the times....that would be nice
Toyota is coming out with a new....or refreshed truck in next year or so....who knows what they have up their sleeve.
Its funny cause I know multiple people that will buy nothing but Toyota....so their are fan boys everywhere.
Lots will buy nothing but Dodge
Me....I don't really care about brand
Simple fact is Ford is behind Dodge and GM in available packaging and options....and interior styling

The real reason Ford won't do it is because they don't have to. They're the top dog, they can sit on their hands for now. If someone starts making a challenge to their sales crown, they might have to do something then.
I think you nailed it. Ford is not just the best selling, I'm pretty sure I read recently that their average transaction price is the highest as well. That should translate into the highest profits.

Much as it annoys me, they have no reason to change.

Here in sunny Seattle too OP, city isn't built for snow. Would love to see equivalent of a 302a sport which added 4A, HID/LED lighting & dual zone climate control. Call it a stripped down 502a if they want. Could care less about cooling seats, push button start and really, really, really prefer the sport xlt cloth interior over leather.

You do know Fords a truck manufacturer whos main goal is to sell trucks right? They're the best selling truck in NA so im not really sure how else you can translate success
How can you mention keeping up with the times and Toyota in the same sentence lol FYI a 2017 Tundra platinum was only available with halogen head lights, regular key with separate fob for buttons, no factory remote start, same dinosaur motor from the first tundra and not a whole lot else. The new and improved game changer 2020 tundra is now available with some type of smart key system, push button start and an 8" productivity screen(which have been available from ford since 2015) and i can guarantee NOTHING new that hasnt already been offered by the big 3.
I truly dont care about brand either, last truck was a ram and i was down to a platinum tundra or the lariat for a new truck. Im in an F150 because dollar for dollar it blew the tundra out of the water.
Simple fact is Dodge and GM are behind the Ford in sales so you bet your *** theyre going to have to give more. And how do you compare a truck that came out 4 years ago to one that was revamped this year?!?!?!?!?! Obviously the interior styling is going to be nicer in a newer truck

Simplify the bs. Packages within packages ;( wtf

equip it like a truck, 4x4 standard with tow hooks but not receiver hitch...
that tiny rear window is almost as cute as that tiny bed
bring back aux power at 7 pin
my MIL budget Toyota Corolla should not have better headlights and safety tech than most F150
Bed storage, man those dodge storage beds look nice.
4x4 should all be LSD or F4 (like the old days)
5.0 ecoboost
And I do realize it is all about making money, but I’ Old cranky and had my shoulder cut on Friday
