We recommend 

We recommend you to go for the Base XL trim if you are on a tight budget. If you can push your budget, then the STX trim would provide you more value. However, if money is not a problem, then it is always better to go for the top tier trim as it adds premiums like chrome exterior, keyless entry keypad, Bluetooth, etc that were missing in the lower trims. However, the main highlight of this trim is the SYNC voice activation system that adds more value for money.

Interior
8.0/10

The interior of the 2013 Ford F-150 Regular Cab is very basic, which is common for pickups these days. There are some amazing features and interesting cabin designs that are available in the higher variants, but the regular cab misses them. The dashboard is covered in hard plastic with the infotainment on the center console. The steering wheel has some buttons to control some of the features of the pickup. All the other controls and buttons are placed on the center console, which is straightforward to use.

The 2013 Ford F-150 Regular Cab seats 3 people in one row. The space is sufficient so that the taller folks won’t find any issues getting in and out of the car. Cloth seats come as standard on the 2013 Ford F-150 Regular Cab. The seats are wide enough and comfortable for three adults even for longer rides. The seats are cushioned. The bolstering on the seats makes it look a bit sporty. The middle seat is foldable and can be converted into a large armrest. This is very handy when there are only two people in the car. Overall the entire interior layout of the Ford F-150 Regular Cab is simple and yet very purposeful.
