The Detroit Free Press (FREEP) has named the 2021 Ford F-150 as its 2021 Truck of the Year, giving the light-duty pickup truck its second major award of the young year. The F-150 also recently won the North American Truck of the Year award against competitors like the Ram 1500 TRX and the Jeep® Gladiator Mojave.
A best-in-class towing capacity of 14,000 pounds is one factor that helped the 2021 F-150 clean up in early 2021. The PowerBoost™ Full-Hybrid V6 scored points for its efficiency and power, and the Max Recline Seats earned praise for their innovative ability to fold nearly flat for supreme relaxation during a tiring day on the jobsite or a long family road trip.
Segment-exclusive over-the-air update capabilities help you always stay connected in your 2021 Ford F-150. An available Interior Work Surface makes it so paperwork doesn’t have to be done on the hood of your truck. The upcoming Active Drive Assist hands-free system is a futuristic addition that’s sure to catch many eyes.
Small details like the built-in measuring stick, cell phone holder, c-clamp receivers on the tailgate, and the longer-than-normal extended running boards also helped the 2021 Ford F-150 stand out to the judges behind the awards.
