Used Ford F150 Platinum for Sale
About the Ford F150 Platinum
For both work and leisure, a full-size pickup truck like the Ford F150 has what it takes. Available in three different cab sizes and bed lengths, plus a variety of trim configurations, there's likely a used F150 out there to suit your precise needs. And if you're looking for a pickup truck that's rugged on the outside but downright luxurious on the inside, the F150's Platinum trim is worth a peek.
The F150 Platinum trim, which is offered for the F150's 12th generation (2009-2014) and 13th generation (2015-2020), delivers some sophisticated technology and convenient features to enhance your driving experience. On most 12th generation models, the Platinum trim boasts a brawny 3.7L V6 engine under the hood and was available in both rear-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive configurations.
By the 13th generation, the Platinum trim debuted in 2015 with a revised 3.5L V6 engine at 283 hp—and by the 2018 model year, an even more powerful 3.3L V6 at 290 hp became standard. As you shop used models, however, don't be surprised if you see other powertrain configurations (like a turbo-diesel 2.7L V6 or even a 5.0L V8), as these were optional on the Platinum trim.
No matter which F150 Platinum model you end up with, you'll enjoy plenty of standard features in a rugged and versatile package.

Ford F150 Platinum Popular Features
With more than a decade worth of F150 Platinum models to choose from, it's probably not surprising that standard features can vary based on the exact model year and generation you're looking at. On earlier model years, like the 2014 F150 Platinum, you can expect to find 20-inch wheels (an upgrade from the base trim's 17-inch wheels) for a smoother ride, as well as a classy leather- and wood-trimmed steering wheel. A built-in navigation system is also standard on the 2014 F150 Platinum, providing you with turn-by-turn directions to your destination. Meanwhile, a power sunroof opens up the cabin nicely.
On later model years, including the 2019 F150 Platinum, you'll still find 20-inch wheels, but you'll also enjoy sophisticated wood and aluminum interior trim accents plus powered running boards for easier access to the cabin. This is in addition to the 2019 F150's already generous list of standard equipment, which includes:
- Rearview camera
- Forward-collision warning
- Automatic headlights
- Trailer sway control
- Pre-wired trailer connections
