When it comes down to the details, the most significant differences between the Lariat and King Ranch are what is inside the cabin and under the hood. The Lariat is available with two different engine options and is standard with keyless entry and ignition, ambient lighting, leather upholstery, ventilated front seats, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and much more. There are also a few accessories packages available, including the Mid 501A package and Luxury 502A package. 

The King Ranch model gets all the features from the Luxury 502A package and adds a Western styling theme to the cabin. Standard features include a navigation system, LED headlights, automatic wipers, Sync Connect, an 11-speaker Bang & Olufsen audio system, forward collision warning and mitigation and HD radio.
