2021 Ford F-150 Adds New Tech for Easier Towing and Hauling

Ford F-150 tech in Toronto, ON

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.

New Ford F-150, Mustang Mach-E Score 2021 NACTOY Awards

2021 Ford F-150 Mustang Mach-E NACTOY | Toronto, Ontario

The all-new 2021 Ford F-150 and Mustang Mach-E are two of the hottest vehicles in the Ford lineup today. They’re also two of the most-awarded, recently picking up a pair of 2021 North American Car, Truck, and Utility Vehicle of the Year Awards™. The double NACTOY win is just the latest example of the F-150 and Mustang Mach-E scoring side-by-side award wins.

Thanks to the F-150 and Mustang Mach-E, Ford pulls off a feat that hasn’t been accomplished in seven years. With the former winning 2021 North American Truck of the Year and the all-electric SUV nabbing the title of North American Utility Vehicle of the Year, Ford is the first to win two NACTOY awards in the same year since 2014.

It’s fair to say that the 2021 Ford F-150 and Mustang Mach-E are both on a hot streak. This dynamic duo both scored in Edmunds’ Top Rated awards, with the F-150 taking home Top Rated Truck and the Mustang Mach-E winning Top Rated Luxury EV. Both also came up big with Green Car Journal, which named the two its choice for Green Truck of the Year and Green Car of the Year.

The idea that the 2021 Ford F-150 and all-electric Mustang Mach-E shouldn’t be all that surprising. The F-150 is the strongest and most capable yet, offering up to 14,000 pounds of best-in-class towing.* With the Mustang Mach-E, Ford delivers an affordable, efficient, and stylish EV that lives up to the Mustang while delivering amazing range of up to 475 kilometres.**
