Main Upgrades from the Previous Year
There were only minor changes from the 2022 lineup. The standard cab is no longer available for the Express trim, but the keyless entry feature is now standard. The Night Edition received an updated infotainment system, replacing the Uconnect 4 with the Uconnect 5.
Interior Layout and OptionsThere are two types of upholstery available: cloth for entry-level trims and heavy-duty vinyl for the Express and above trims. All seats are adjusted manually, and the rear bench is foldable in all models. Other common features include a centre armrest for the front seats (with three cup holders), 12v auxiliary outlets, and rear under-seat storage bins.
All models have a tilted steering column, but only the flagship model has a leather-wrapped steering wheel. There are other luxury features that are exclusive to the SLT and Warlock, such as a premium door trim panel with a map pocket, rear power sliding window, an overhead console, hands-free communication, remote USB port for charging, temperature and compass displays.
Exterior Layout and Options
Most of the exterior features are standard for all trims, with only small differences between them. Standard features include auto quad halogen headlamps, door handles in black, cargo lamp and centre high-mounted stop lamp, and power-heated 6x9-inch mirrors with manual folding. The 17-inch aluminium wheels are standard for all trims except the Night Edition and Warlock, which come with 20-inch wheels and black badging. The Warlock also comes with exclusive LED sport tail lamps and a sport hood with a performance decal.
Technology, Infotainment, and Connectivity
There are two options for infotainment systems: Uconnect 3 and Uconnect 5. The Uconnect 3 comes with a 5-inch touchscreen display; the Uconnect 5 comes with an 8.4-inch touchscreen display. There’s also a 7-inch cluster display where you can see info about fuel economy, navigation, performance, tire pressure, and more.
All models come with a one-year subscription for SiriusXM Satellite Radio, except for the Tradesman. Also, there’s mobile compatibility with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay for all models, as well as a 4G Wi-Fi hotspot. The SLT and Warlock models have a keyless entry system, which is automatically activated when you leave or approach the vehicle.
Safety and Driver-Assistant Features
All models come with electronic stability control, giving you better balance on the grittiest roads. There are advanced and supplemental airbags in the front and on the side curtains. The Express and above trims have fog lamps, too.
Standard driving assistants for all models include traction control, trailer sway control, electronic roll mitigation, hill start assist, rain brake support, and ready alert braking.
There’s a ParkView camera with active guidelines you can follow through your touchscreen infotainment system. Although this camera is common to all trims, only the Warlock has ParkSense Rear Park assist.
