The all-new, 14th generation 2021 Ford F-150 comes with a vast array of new features and technology, including Max Recline Seats, a Pro Power Onboard generator, Interior and Tailgate Work Surfaces, and more, even if it is still widely available with traditional features like a column shifter and even manual crank windows. Another thing that’s changed is the 2021 Ford F-150 infotainment screen availability.
|Trim||8" Center Stack Touchscreen||12" Center Stack Touchscreen|
As far as 2021 Ford F-150 infotainment screen availability goes, XL and XLT trims equipped with the optional 300A and 301A packages come with an 8-inch touchscreen as standard equipment. The larger 12-inch screen is not available on these models.
Step up to the XLT with the 302A package and the 12-inch screen becomes standard equipment. That is also the case with each trim level above it – the Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum, Limited, and Raptor all come with the large 12-inch touchscreen as standard equipment.
For 2021, every Ford F-150 comes equipped with SYNC 4, regardless of screen size. Both the standard 8-inch screen and larger 12-inch screen offer the following capabilities:
- Wireless Phone Connection
- Cloud Connected
- AppLink w/ App Catalog
- 911 Assist
- Apple CarPlay and Android Auto Compatibility
- Digital Owner’s Manual
- Conversational Voice Command Recognition
SYNC 4 is the latest version of Ford’s SYNC operating system and is just beginning to show up in various Blue Oval models including the 2021 F-150, 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E, 2021 Ford Bronco, and 2021 Lincoln Nautilus. Moving forward, we can expect to see SYNC 4 appear in more and more Ford and Lincoln vehicles, which should come as a welcome change for owners.
