The 2021 model-year Ford F-150 will feature a standard center console touch screen that will include a new digital owner's manual with search capability, as well as streamed videos. 

The smaller, supplemental guide will reduce paper use by 290 tons, or the weight of 122 average 2021 F-150 pickups or a stack of saved paper that comes to roughly 18,000 feet! 

In addition, the all-new 3.5L PowerBoost full hybrid V-6 powertrain makes F-150 the only light-duty full-size pickup to offer a full hybrid and is available on every trim level from XL to Limited. The full hybrid powertrain is the most powerful engine in the all-new F-150 lineup, delivering 430 horsepower and 570 lb.-ft. of torque. The no-compromise PowerBoost system adds instant electric torque to Ford’s 3.5L EcoBoost V-6 and is targeting an EPA-estimated range of approximately 700 miles on a single tank of gasᶧ and will deliver a maximum available 12,700 pounds towing.

F-150 introduces an all-new 12-inch center screen – standard on XLT high series and above – that allows customers to split the screen and control multiple functions simultaneously, including navigation, music, or truck features.
