Interior

What is it like on the inside?

The F-150 is well-equipped to be the ideal mobile office or home away from home. The cabin is wide and capacious, even in its smallest form, with SuperCab and SuperCrew providing ample people space. Up front, the Ford’s big and brawny dash puts everything in reach and there’s very little guessing about where things are on the fly.

Paired with the 12-inch touchscreen is a similar-sized digital gauge cluster that changes with the drive modes, pushing pertinent info up front such as fuel economy, car pitch and tilt angles, and so on.

It’s not technically on the inside but depending on configuration, the F-150’s truck bed provides between 52.8cu ft of storage to 77.4cu ft of space. Additions to the bed’s layout now include two-inch notches in strategic places to help you DIY different solutions when it comes to carrying cargo.

Tell me more about the tech.

Outside of BlueCruise - which is a subscription-based option - the F-150 has 10 standard driver-assist features that includes blind spot alert, cross traffic alerts, adaptive cruise control with lane keep assist and more. Optional packages throw in the 360-view camera, trailer assist and telematics if you’re buying a fleet of F-150s for your business.

All of this might sound like an enticing package, and you’d be right. In fact, it might tempt someone enough to want to take one for themselves without the hassle ordering their own or, in fact, paying for it. For that unique user segment, Ford now offers Stolen Vehicle Services, a system paid owners can opt into for added theft protection. The system pushes a notification to the rightful owner’s phone if it detects someone breaking into the truck or attempting to tow it away (presumably with another, pre-stolen F-150). If that’s the case, the owner can alert a 24/7 call center who can send vehicle location data to the local authorities for them to recover it.
