The 2021 Ford F-150 is the 13th generation and it’s not playing games and giving its customers three cabin types, six power trains, and 11 grill options. Not only do you get all these exterior options with this generation Ford stepped up and offered some leading technology that we haven’t seen yet in a truck. These are some of the features we at FastMint are looking forward to.
Special Graphics on the Digital Instrument Panel
Two new digital displays make their debut with the all-new redesigned 2021 Ford F-150. Different screens appear depending on which driving mode is selected. The screen will change accordingly and show information that would best help you navigate in whatever terrain that you may be in which can come in handy when towing or in situations that you have to pay close attention to traction or angles.
Folding Gear shifter
The folding gear shifter doesn’t seem to be appealing to everyday people, but when you think about the F-150 typically being the Truck most companies use when working in the field this is a great feature that helps utilize space. Customers told Ford they wanted just a regular shifter instead of changing the layout as most auto companies have started doing. Pressing the silver button above the P indicator sends the shifter flush into the console so a tray can lay flat across it. This provides workers with extra flat space that will help workers fill out paperwork, have an area for your laptop, or even an area to eat when on a lunch break
All F-150 trucks come standard with new SYNC 4. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are included as standard features and can connect your device wirelessly to your operating system. The new SYNC 4 software is bringing F-150 updates over the air which helps eliminate wasting time heading to the dealership for a simple upgrade to your system.
Speakers in the Headrests
The speaker system has gotten a significant upgrade and Ford teamed up with Bang & Olufsen to produce a truly immersive stereo experience. The system comes equipped with 18 speakers that will have you in a trance with whatever you have planned throughout the day. Some of these speakers have been integrated into the headrest and it helps give you a truly satisfying surround experience.
For anyone working in the field, this can be one of the most useful features when dealing with long 12 hour shifts. When you’re on break and you need to catch up on a power nap you don’t have to look any further than Fords Max Recline seats. These front seats comfortably fold almost completely down allowing you the closest thing to a bed without having to leave the convenience of your work vehicle. These will also come in handy on long trips you may take.
