The F-150 has always been a pioneer for innovation in the pickup truck segment — and that’s not going to change any time soon. Ford recently announced that the all-new 2021 F-150 will come equipped with new high-tech towing and hauling features that make tough jobs easier.
“We’re constantly working to deliver a continuous history of capable, strong, and smart trucks designed to make the F-150 customer even more productive,” said Todd Eckert, Ford truck group marketing manager. “This summer we’re delivering three new features all about enhancing the F-150 customer experience, while delivering even greater confidence when towing and hauling.”
For the 2021 model year, the F-150 is debuting an available Onboard Scales feature. This technology allows you to understand just how much weight you’re hauling. It estimates cargo weight in real time, indicating capacity in three ways: on the centre touchscreen, on a mobile phone through the FordPass™ app, and in graphics on the truck’s smart taillights.
The F-150 will also come available with the class-exclusive Smart Hitch. This technology measures the tongue weight of a trailer that’s being connected, allowing you to distribute your trailer weight correctly and efficiently.
Another new F-150 is controlled damping, which enhances your ride experience and handling capabilities while hauling and towing.
These features are being added to the 2021 Ford F-150 lineup in early June, with deliveries set to begin in late summer. Contact us here at Downtown Ford in Toronto to learn how you can get an F-150 with these exciting new technologies.
