Entering the 14th generation in the market, the Ford F-150 has been unveiled for the 2021 model year and it’s going to have some cool new features. You’ll be pleased to find items that help you get more done, handle the time in the outdoors with ease, and have the qualities you’re looking for in the truck you drive.
We’ve loved the Ford F-150 for may years and the next generation of this truck seems to be more of the same. The exterior of the new F-150 looks similar to the current model, which gives us the idea that some of the upgrades are made to make the truck perform better for you.
You’ll See a New Tailgate
With competitors offering tailgates that seem to do a lot of stuff, you might be disappointed to see a tailgate that doesn’t swing, split, or do much at all when you look at the Ford F-150. Look closer and you’ll see how Ford has improved this area of the truck for you.
The tailgate of the F-150 is a work surface for you. You’ll find integrated rulers, a mobile device holder, a cup holder, and a pencil holder. This means you can turn the tailgate of the F-150 into the space where you get work done and plan your job. You won’t have to set up as many sawhorses and you’ll have a place for all the items you need to use during your day.
The Ford F-150 has Power Where You Need it
Most of the time, when we talk about power, you expect to talk about engines, but that’s not the case here. There is a new built-in generator to give you enough power to operate 28 refrigerators. This means you can use your work tools, power an electric dirt bike, or handle the power needed when you want to tailgate with the Ford F-150.
The power you use is accessible through in-cabin outlets and up to four cargo bed-mounted 120-volt outlets. There’s also a 240-volt outlet offered for the big items you might need to run when you’re using the truck. Charge your tools between jobs, plug in the items you need to use, and let the work get done wherever you go without the need of hundreds of feet of extension cords. The new Ford F-150 has the power you’re looking for.
Seats that Do it All
Sometimes, you can’t get comfortable in your vehicle when you have some time to kill and just want to lean back and relax for a little bit. The new Ford F-150 takes care of this problem by offering you the benefits of Max Recline seats that can give you the relaxed position you want to enjoy whether you stop for a nap during a road trip or you’re waiting for the next job to start.
The Max Recline Seats of the Ford F-150 are offered for the King Ranch, Platinum, and Limited trims to make sure you have the comfort you desire. The seats fold flat to nearly 180 degrees with the bottom cushion rising up to meet the back and give you the most comfortable position you can enjoy. Make sure you have this feature on the 2021 Ford F-150 you drive.
New Interior Work Surfaces in the Ford F-150
A feature that’s unique to the Ford F-150 is the work surfaces offered in the cabin. Actually, you’ll find a couple of them in the front seat and in the rear seat area to make sure you can have an area that feels almost like a desktop when you need to do some stuff inside your truck. Take care of business easier with this feature.
One cool aspect of the work surface in the front of the Ford F-150 is the stowable feature of it. The surface can be folded into the center console with the push of a button and then brought back out when you’re in park and need to use it. This surface gives you a great place to use your laptop, enjoy your lunch, or sign some documents. You’ll be pleased with how convenient this item is for you.
A Fold-Flat Rear Storage Area
How can Ford give you room for more storage in a box without affecting the space you find in the bed of the truck? They found the answer to this question and have put a large box under the second row of seats to make sure you can have a place to put wet or dirty gear, items you don’t want to be exposed to the elements or some of the tools you need.
Lift the bottom cushion of the rear seat of the Ford F-150 and you’ll find the storage area. You can put documents in this space, break down fishing poles and have them ready, or us the divider to make sure your small items are separated from each other. This storage box gives you the added designated room you need while giving you the maximum cargo volume in the bed of the F-150.
The Ford F-150 has Extended Running Boards
At first glance, you might not notice the upgrades to the running boards of the Ford F-150. This is a feature that’s been part of this truck for a long time and its nearly an afterthought hat you might not consider when you’re looking at the truck you want to drive. Even so, the extended models on the F-150 can make it easier for you to get things you need.
How do these running boards help you? When you have the Ford F-150 with the extended running boards, you have a step up to the side of the bed of the truck to reach things in the front of the bed. The running boards extend past the rear door to the beginning of the rear wheel well to give you an easy step to get items from the bed when you need to.
Get ready for the new generation of the Ford F-150 to be ready to give you the build and the features you want to enjoy every day.
