Pretty sure there is no difference if you're talking about the headlights. They said the taillamps and what not are incandescent on the lower trims, so perhaps the "signature lighting" also changes this, but I'd wager they are probably just talking about interior lights.

I just received the order guide from my dealer. Under the Lariat trim it clearly states signature headlights and incandescent tail lights. Once again Ford disappoints. As of the beginning of this year I vowed to not purchase any vehicle without LEDs all the way around. Maybe they’ll come around in 2023.

I'm not too mad about incandescent tail lights. It's obviously a thing because they needed to keep costs low and a separate tail light for the Lariat trim didn't make sense to R&D. Thankfully its easy to buy a set of VLEDs LED bulbs which don't error and swap them in for brighter. It also keeps the trims kinda consistent with the rest of the lineup, the Lariat 2021 F150 has the same halogen tail lights, gotta step up to a luxury trim for LED tails.

Maybe they'll add a King Ranch / Limited / Platinum trim with SYNC 4, Blue Cruise, LED all around, and whatever else in the years to come.

Not necessarily, on the Ram 1500 at least its a huge pain. Even with resistors wired in, half the people still get bulb out warnings as the canbus is so sensitive. It sucks!

In my experience Ford isn't as annoying. My 2016 Cummins annoyed me about LEDs too and I eventually switched them back to halogens but in my friend's 2021 F150 XLT he's running LED tails no issue.

Need to hit the exact same power consumption probably. Current can be measured with a multimeter.
