2021 Ford F-150 to Receive Multiple New Features
Earlier this week, the Ford Motor Company announced that it will be debuting a host of new technologies for the 2021 Ford F-150 this summer. These new features will include Onboard Scales, a Smart Hitch, and a Continuously Controlled Damping active suspension.
“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.”
With Onboard Scales, which measure and display the approximate weight of any given payload, customers can now gauge just how much they are hauling. Load information is displayed on the center touchscreen via graphic representation, on a mobile phone via the FordPass app, or on graphics inside the truck’s smart tail lamps.
The Ford F-150’s class-exclusive Smart Hitch is designed to help customers easily load trailers and better practice safe towing. Smart Hitch measures the tongue weight of a trailer in order to help drivers distribute trailer weight properly.
Lastly, the 2021 Ford F-150 will soon offer continuously controlled damping for enhanced ride handling characteristics, especially when towing or hauling heavy loads. The 2021 Ford F-150 will analyze multiple signals collected from high-resolution sensors and adjust vehicle response by controlling specialized valves built into the shocks, reducing unwanted motions like bounce, pitch, and roll.
These all-new features will become available on 2021 Ford F-150 models beginning in June, but you don’t have to wait that long to get behind the wheel of the 2021 Ford F-150 today! Click here to browse our currently available inventory of this model right now at Winner Ford of Cherry Hill!
