You need to check the window sticker for things you need

towing packages
snowplow package
5Th wheel / gooseneck prep kit
dual alternators
sliding roof and sliding rear bed window
4x4
4.30 rear
19 inch wheels with 10 bolt hub

these are the main things I wanted . I didnít care if it was an xl, xlt, lariat, king ranch, platinum, limited

Mid your only by shopping trim level you need to really understand what your needs are. You can find a truck that will have options above or below their trim level.

Is there a good place to get the window sticker if you only have the VIN?

I've driven King Ranches that had fewer options than Lariats. So just getting a Platinum or King Ranch doesn't mean you are getting more.

You really need to compare options.

I do think you get slightly better leather seats when you buy either a KR or Platty vs a Lariat.

And on a '14 or '15 model, You don't have as much technology stuff. Blind Side, Adaptive Cruise, Adaptive Steering,, 360 Cameras, Rain sensing wipers, auto dim headlights etc as you can load on a '17 and newer

But you can see a KR or Platty with no Navigation vs a Lariat with. or Sun Roof, Chrome Package etc. It was easy to configure a loaded Lariat that cost more than a bare KR/Platinum So compare options

Engine Heater
Rapid Supplemental Heat
Navigation
Back up Camera
Tailgate step
Moonroof
Factory GN/5th wheel prep
20" vs 18" wheels
Dual Alternators

You may not care about these options, But they can be bargaining chips in the comparison

I'd check payload capacity if you plan on using it for hauling/towing.
