Available in Fall this year, the all-new Ford F-150 is a complete redesign of the exterior and interior.

All-new F-150 Limited in Smoked Quartz Tinted Clearcoat. New exterior design has a bolder and even tougher look, while an all-new interior provides more comfort, technology and functionality for truck customers, along with enhanced materials, new color choices and more storage.

We sum up 8 cool features on the all-new Ford F-150 at a quick glance. Check them out and let us know what you think of these features. Which ones are useful for you?

Tailgate work surface

All new Ford F-150 work tailgate

Ford said in their release, they notice that the truck bed becomes a hub on constructions sites. For that reason, they’ve come up with the Tailgate Work Surface, to make the tailgate more useful.

An available option, the Tailgate Work Surface adds a built-in ruler, cup holder, pencil holder, and mobile device holder.

Cleats on the side of the tailgate are multi-functional, working as tie-downs or as a bottle opener.

Fold-flat center console

Hands-free driving

A host of driver assist features are added, but the one that stands out to us is the feature called Active Drive Assist. Not yet activated, but equipped with the hardware, the all-new F-150 will allow for hands-free driving.

“It allows owners on certain sections of pre-mapped, divided highways to drive with their hands off the steering wheel – if they continue to pay attention to the road ahead – granting them an additional level of comfort during long drives,” Ford says. Currently, there is over 100,000 miles of divided highway across 50 states that allow for this feature.

An over-the-air software update is expected in the fall of 2021 to activate this feature (or a dealer visit). Ford say a separate payment will be required at the time of the upgrade.

Seats to sleep on

Front driver and passenger seats are able to fold almost flat, creating a comfortable position to lay down on. Part of the seat below the headrest then raises up (up to 10 degrees) for head support. This available feature on the all-new Ford F-150 is called Max Recline Seats, and is class-exclusive.

Built-in power

This feature is an available extra and is called Pro Power Onboard and Ford says it brings, “… generator levels of exportable power to work sites, campsites, and everyday life.” A 2.0 kW (2000 watts) is available on gas engines, while a 2.4 kW comes standard on the PowerBoost (hybrid) F-150 with an option to upgrade to a system with a 7.2 kW output.

120-volt 20 amp outlets are in the cab and in the bed (up to four in the bed). 7.2 kW systems get a 240-volt 30-amp outlet. Tool batteries are chargeable on the go.

Available 7.2-kilowatt Pro Power Onboard™ features four 120V 20A outlets and one NEMA L14-30R 240V 30A. The all-new F-150 features more exportable power than any light-duty full-size pickup, giving you the ability to use your truck as a mobile generator. It is available with three levels of electrical output depending on engine choice.

SYNC4 as standard

Wireless connection, over the air updates including maps, and conversational voice recognition are the big updates in Ford’s SYNC4 infotainment system.

V6 Hybrid Powertrain

A 3.5L PowerBoost hybrid engine offers up to approximately a 700-mile-range on a single tank of gas. This powertrain combines the EcoBoost engine, 10-speed transmission and a 35kW electric motor. Ford are hoping for around the 12,000 lb mark for max towing capability and will be available on every F-150 trim from an XL to a Limited. Regenerative braking helps in recharging the 1.5-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery.
