    2020 Ford F-150 Cattleman: A Back-To-Basics Pickup

    Today’s luxed-up trucks are a far departure from their working-class predecessors that offered bare-bones functionality above all else. New trucks today can reach luxury-brand prices with ease thanks to a plethora of available trims, body styles, powertrains, features, and options. However, there are still those who want nothing more than a work truck, and one Kansas dealership is giving customers just that. Long McArthur Ford is offering the 2020 Ford F-150 Cattleman Edition, a dealership-installed package for those seeking the perfect work truck.

    The Cattleman Edition package is available from the dealership for $5,995 and can be installed on any F-150 – new, used, or ordered from the factory. The dealership spec’d three – red, white, and blue – that are for sale. The three in stock are XL trims with the regular cab, eight-foot-bed, 3.73 gear ratio, and 5.0-liter V8 engine. Features that should please working customers include vinyl 40/20/40 seats, vinyl floor, manual windows and locks, AM/FM radio, and a Class-4 receiver hitch. The rear-view camera is standard.

    Interesting to see how well this sells.

    While pickups are incredibly popular, that "subset" of customers who are seeking a "offroad-capable" work-truck-only type product for a farm or ranch might be a relatively small group of customers.

    I think it's a pretty large growing segment to get a work truck that can just be washed out if need be. I loved that feature on my moms 97 Silverado and wish that more trucks came that way.

    If someone is looking at a truck like this, it's going to get a hard life and sometimes all the manual stuff manages to just live longer.

    Just what all the young bucks want/need. I would like to see how it does because there are a lot of buyers who don't need a gussied up Cadillac of a truck.

    I like when dealerships come up with market specific packages for their region of buyers. Reminds me of the few articles you saw about the RCSB chevy sport trucks off of the WT trim for 35k that no one capitalized on. And of all the Florida specials Cadillacs that all had the padded roofs for the retirees, that were capitalized on way too much.

    Price sensitive work truck customers are not necessarily interested in an overpriced dealer upgrade either.

    I really like the package/approach, but $6 grand??

    EDIT : went back & watched the vid, Maybe that's not too bad a price after all. Pretty cool how you can have the package put on your existing truck, too.

    Aaaaaaand I like the truck even more now. Nailed the stance/ wheel/tires.

    It would be better were it a shortbed. I do not like it as is.

    Short beds are useless for actual work.

    Re: 2020 Ford F-150 Cattleman: A Back-To-Basics Pickup

    Good concept, looks good but possibly an expensive execution. I’d assume a person could get wheels, tires, steps, 2” lift and a ranch hand brush guard for less? I know some like the convenience of a dealer install along with the warranty so some may see $6k as acceptable. May be more acceptable if it included a ranch hand front bumper as opposed to just the brush guard. I’m sure the dealer could do that too (for more $)

    You can't have your bed and sleep in it too. Or something like that.
    It sounded pretty good until I actually said it.

    Re: 2020 Ford F-150 Cattleman: A Back-To-Basics Pickup

    I think it is a great idea. Construction, farm/ranch customers don't want or need a lot of expensive add-ons. The manual locks and roll up windows would be the only "luxury" item that I think would be best to stay with electric windows. I get that in Winter conditions they some times freeze up, but cranking down the passenger window when your neighbor pulls up on the passenger side, sucks. Reference the comment on short box/long box, you have to remember these trucks without exception will get a cross bed tool box and/or a transfer diesel fuel tank. Start with a short box and you almost zero bed space left.
