The 2021 F-150 is so Packed With Technology That it Might Even Give Tesla a Run for Their Money
In 2020 and beyond, we really ask a lot of our pickup trucks. Long gone are the days where manufacturers can just build a reliable vehicle that can get the job done. Instead, these days, they need to pack in all sorts of features that are borrowed from different segments.
Pickup trucks still get the job done these days. However, they might borrow the plushness from the luxury segment, the fuel efficiency from the economy segment, and even the technology from some of the other high-end vehicles in a manufacturer’s lineup.
We would be inclined to think that if these different factors weren’t offered with a pickup truck model, the likelihood that it would sell would probably decline quite a bit. Consumers really seem to want to have their cake and eat it too when it comes to picking out the truck that’s just right for them.
This time, we move into the next upcoming model year to see exactly how this idea applies to Ford. As it turns out, the 2021 Ford F-150 doesn’t just come with a facelift. Instead of being simply cosmetically improved, we find all sorts of technological goodies onboard that bring the truck to life as well.
By following along with the video below, the crew from The Fast Lane gives us a full tour of some of the new technology and gadgets that are found inside the truck. In fact, they argue that maybe even some Tesla owners would find this truck technologically interesting.
It seems as if we are quickly approaching a day and age where some vehicles are becoming something that’s unrecognizable when compared to their former selves. We would argue that the F-150 could soon find its way into this category as Ford is making massive strides to bring users an all-new experience with every generation.
