Default Why the black outside mirrors in all the Laraits ?

Looking at used Lariat screws... seems they all have the black outside mirrors ?? These look cheap to me .. I would think Lariats should be chrome like my 2013
the bumper and grill are chrome but the mirrors are cheap looking black

Nothing wrong with black side mirrors IMO, i have 'em on all my vehicles. Keep in mind i'm not a chrome afficionado.

You know the old saying, 'once you go black you never go back'.

Humm again I just think on an upscale model putting black plastic work truck mirrors is cheap looking,,, that’s my opinion,,, sure doesn’t look like they belong on a 60k truck..
so it must be certain pkgs ???

Question,,do you lease ? If not do you sell outright or trade in ? Curious to your method...also I for sure would not want to buy a truck that cost 60k and have cheapo black trim,....looks like a work truck...I like the chrome mirrors and door handles !!

I don't lease, just trade in and pay cash for the difference. I do like the look of chrome on a truck also. Hope this information helps in your search for a truck.The 2019 Lariat 502a package includes the "Lariat Chrome appearance package" which consists of the following:

LARIAT Chrome Appearance Package

Includes:
• 18-inch Chrome-like PVD wheels
• 265/60R18 BSW all-season tires (A/S) – 4x2
• 275/65R18 OWL all-season/all-terrain tires (A/S A/T) – 4x4
• Chrome angular step bars
• Chrome door and tailgate handles with body-color bezel
• Chrome front tow hooks, two (2) – 4x4 only
• Chrome single-tip exhaust
• Chrome skull-caps on exterior mirrors
• Grille – Two-Bar with four minor bars – Chrome with Painted Silver surround and background mesh

I do my research before I go in and see what my trade in value is and then have a figure in my mind what I'm willing to pay for the difference between the trade in value and the price of the truck I'm interested in. I'm just interested in the OTD (Out the Door) price and really not too concerned how everything is broken down. If that figure I have come up with for the OTD price can't be met then no deal. I have walked out a few times over the years, but usually have had my OTD price met as I try to be fair with the dealership as well as myself.
