Just last night, we caught our first official glimpse of the 2021 Ford F-150. That shadowy shot previewed the truck’s entirely new front end design and its very cool-looking daytime running lights that punctuate what is a series of brand new panels for the exterior of the pickup, as Ford Authority previously reported. However, there’s a lot going on in the new F-150’s cabin as well. And according to Reuters, that includes a very cool feature pertaining to at least one 2021 F-150 seat.
The news source recently ran a piece discussing the new F-150’s many attributes, including its ability to receive over-the-air updates and that bespoke new interior. But somewhat buried in the article was a brand-new tidbit that we have never heard before. “One prominent feature will be the lay-flat passenger seat like those seen in first-class cabins on some planes. You can basically live in the truck,” a mysterious source told Reuters.
This is a fascinating revelation, indeed. These days, more and more people are traveling off-road and participating in overlanding, keen to camp out in various remote places in the wilderness. This 2021 F-150 seat design is clearly geared at those folks, or even those who travel long distance and might need to catch a nap every now and then.
This is just one of the many cool interior features we’re expecting to see in the all-new 2021 Ford F-150 when it debuts on June 25th, 2020 at 8 pm EDT. The new interior will feature an available digital gauge cluster, an all-new center stack and center console, a stow-away shifter, and higher-quality materials. An onboard generator is also rumored to provide a separate power source, which will undoubtedly be extremely useful for both job sites and campers alike.
Most of the powertrains in the current F-150 will likely carry over to the new 2021 model, and will continue to be backed up by Ford’s 10-speed automatic transmission. A hybrid F-150 will join those models at or close to the truck’s launch, followed by an all-electric F-150 by mid-2022. We expect a new version of the F-150 Raptor to launch roughly one year after the regular model.
