Palpable Performance in the 2021 Ford F-150

Ford F-150 Towing CapabilityTo help you make the most of its ample towing capacity, all 2-wheel drive (2WD) models of the 2021 Ford F-150 feature the following Selectable Drive Modes:

  • Normal
  • ECO
  • Sport
  • Tow/Haul
  • Slippery
  • Trail

Instead of the Trail Mode, the Ford F-150 4-wheel drive (4WD) models come with Deep Snow/Sand and Mud/Rut modes. With this adaptable system on board, you’ll be able to move forward with confidence both on and off the road in even the most challenging conditions.

The 2021 F-150 also comes standard with a Hill Start Assist system. This feature will come in handy on uneven gradients. When transitioning from the brake pedal to the gas pedal on an incline, your pickup would normally slide backward. The Hill Start Assist system locks your F-150 in place as you make the transition. This will add another layer of stability and security as you tow your trailer from jobsite to jobsite.

Ford F-150: Productivity & Convenience

Ford F-150 SpecsIn the truck bed, you’ll find an array of standard and available features that can amp up your productivity. The available BoxLink™ tie-down system enables you to quickly secure various items in your truck bed. Whether you’re at the jobsite or the campsite, the optional tailgate step will help you get in and out of the bed with ease.

When outfitted with the available 7.2kW Pro Power Onboard system, your 2021 Ford F-150 will double as a mobile generator that lets you plug in lights, appliances, and more. In addition to the available 7.2kW Pro Power Onboard, this Ford makes available a:

  • 2kW Pro Power Onboard
  • 2.4kW Pro Power Onboard

Inside the cab, the optional interior work surface lets you complete any necessary paperwork or administrative tasks on the go. Once you’re done, simply slide it back down along the seat until you need it again.

If you’re looking to maximize your productivity on the go, you’ll also appreciate the multimedia system you’ll find in the F-150. The 8-inch center-stack screen and SYNC® 4 system with Bluetooth® technology will make it easy to interact with your mobile device on the go. For an even easier user experience with this system, the F-150 makes an enhanced voice recognition feature available. This will allow you to use the system without having to take your eyes off the road ahead.

Additionally, the pickup comes with FordPass™ Connect with 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot. This will provide unmatched connectivity on the go and enable you to send texts and make important calls with ease. Coming with the ability to connect up to 10 devices and connectivity up to 50 feet away from the pickup, it’s hard to find a better productivity system in any 2021 truck.

The 2021 Ford F-150 also offers an available tonneau pickup box cover, including hard-folding, soft-folding, and retractable options that protect your gear and equipment from the elements. Plus, with the optional premium aluminum crossbed storage toolbox by Weather Guard®, you’ll have some added security to safeguard your investments.

Added Towing Assistance in the 2021 F-150

The 2021 F-150 comes with a number of additional features that will help on your commute.

Ford F-150 Towing AssistanceFor example, the Rear View Camera with dynamic hitch assist kicks on when you shift the pickup into Reverse, providing an expanded view of what is going on behind the vehicle. The dynamic hitch assist will also prove helpful when you go to load up that trailer, giving you a line of sight between your hitch and trailer.

You’ll also want to make note of the Curve Control system. This innovative feature will help you keep a steady and safe pace going around curves. Using sensors and technology, the system will detect if you’re traveling at speeds too fast to handle the upcoming curve and automatically slow down the pickup to stabilize the ride and help keep you safe. The Curve Control system comes as part of the F-150’s larger AdvanceTrac® with RSC® (Roll Stability Control™).

Available BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert and Trailer Tow Coverage is another great feature. When equipped, your Ford F-150 adds another layer of safety and assistance. This system monitors what’s going on in your blind spots, alerting you if a vehicle approaches one on either side. The Trailer Tow Coverage feature extends this monitor using sensors in your rear taillamps, again alerting you if a vehicle approaches the sides of your trailer.

Other safety features that come on the Ford F-150 include:

  • SecuriLock® Passive Anti-Theft System
  • SOS Post-Crash Alert System™
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System
