I got the 40/console, but specifically wanted a column shift. Like that it's up out of the way as the center shift takes up useable storage space.

I would never buy a truck with the console. My trucks are always 40/20/40. The amount of room the console takes up is a no go for me. I have an expedition and an F-150 of the same year so I can compare apples to apples and the Expedition front seat feels way more cramped because of the extra space the console consumes. That being said, I am 63 so that might have something to do with why leg room is much more important to me

I loved having the extra 12V plug inside the storage and Ford thoughtfully added in a little hole from the 12V plug in the storage so I could have a wire to the center console.

I didn't like using the truck's USB plug because it didn't come with Quick Charge so I had a plug for Quick Charge in the 12V. So I would use either one of the cables.. one for Android Auto or the other one to quickly charge my phone.

My first Ford F-150 had the center console. I thought it was standard until I rented an F-150 without.. realized I can't live without it so I made sure my new 2016 had the 40/Console/40. Looks nicer too!

I did not want the Sport edition with gear selector on the floor, I liked the extra space! I could throw my phone in the big tray.

Love the column shift on mine, much more room for storage/quick access items in the console.

I too like my 40/20/40 seat. Of course it's the only one available on an XL so that's cool...

I have an XL with console, but it's an STX and for another $300 you can get the STX sport cloth seats that come with it. Like the one person said another plus is the rear air and usb ports if you have kids.

I bought my lariat 501a package for the 40/20/40 bench seat due to kids and grand kids all being able to fit comfortably. Wish you could order higher level F150 with the bench seat option, once you go higher then 501a package, console is added in.

I have the front bench. ‘17 Screw Lariat. I’ve needed to use the seat twice in a year. I like it.

Its all about cost. Ford considers the XLT a budget truck, and $300 is $300. Personally, my last bench was in a Superduty. I think 1999. Im considering going back. A console does nothing but fill with garbage and receipts. I do like the comfort of the shifter when locking out gears or manually shifting, so Im torn. My 2018 XLT has the console with column shifter. Kind of a blunder in my book.put the gear shifter on the console if you have a console. Again, the console adds no versatility, and collects crap in a black hole with a lid. Now, if I add a console safe for Lil Betty...

They used to sell a version that was 40/console/40 but it wasn't the "full flow-through" console, it was small, and you could play footsie with the person on the passenger side and it had the column shift too. that was a rare option, and I don't think it's still a choice.

Definitely not a blunder. I love the console with the column shift. Another reason not to go for the higher trim level trucks.

I took the 20 out and replaced it with a Tuffy lock box. Sawed off the bottom seat mount and welded it to the Tuffy. Tossed the 20 in the dumpster. Like column shift and the security the Tuffy box provides.l
