2024 Ford F-150 Refresh To Add New Vertical Screen: Photos

Back in September, Ford Authority reported that a refreshed Ford F-150 was due to arrive in 2023 for the 2024 model year, and in December, spotted a prototype of that particular model for the very first time. That sighting was followed up by another one a few weeks later, and just last week, Ford Authority came across another 2024 Ford F-150 prototype – this time wearing less camo and showing off its new taillight design for the first time. Now, these new photos give us our first look at the revised interior of the best-selling pickup, revealing the presence of a new, vertical infotainment screen.

This is notable because currently, the F-150 features horizontally-oriented screens in both 8- and 12-inch sizes. However, it’s unclear if the screen present in this prototype is entirely new, or if its the same 12-inch vertical unit that debuted in the 2021 Ford Edge, one of the two new vertical screens present in the next-generation Ford Ranger, or – most likely – the 15.5-inch screen utilized in the Ford F-150 Lightning, Ford Mustang Mach-E, and 2022 and up Ford Expedition, albeit running an updated version of Sync 4A.

Either way, the screen present in this 2024 Ford F-150 prototype seems to follow the redesigned Ranger in terms of switching to a vertical orientation for its infotainment screen, which are positioned lower than the current screen in the F-150 Lightning. There’s also a row of buttons along the top of the screen that look like they could be used for functions such as traction control and camera settings, as is the case with the current F-150. However, in this case, those buttons appear to be enclosed in the same housing as the screen itself.

In addition to this major interior revision, the 2024 Ford F-150 is expected to receive some exterior styling updates including the aforementioned new taillight design, as well as a possible new multifunction tailgate. Otherwise, the previously-spotted prototypes don’t look significantly different than the current pickup, at least on the outside.

We’ll have more on the 2024 Ford F-150 soon, so be sure and subscribe to Ford Authority for the latest Ford F-Series news, Ford F-150 news, and continuous Ford news coverage.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.

    A larger screen doesn’t make the truck new.

    Ugh, that’s terrible. Vertical screens never work as well as a horizontally laid out one. Huge miss in every vehicle Ford and others out them in.

    Hopefully they don’t lock you into that screen at higher trims. Would be a total deal breaker for me.

    Wow it has an I pad and this time they mounted it vertically, oh and they added four more screws…..big story….no one has told me the difference between the old cab and this new one. Boring.

    Ford has the most dated looking pickups…same doors i think will fit 2013 models….it badly needs a complete restyle…while it selling good…the others are catching up….

    1. Nunya

      Yeah, no………the 2013 doors are completely different than even the 2015 models.

    if true, not a fan. However, a vertical opening in the masking material doesn’t necessarily mean a vertical screen is behind it.

    I’m at the point wear I’m just gonna have to drive with nighttime shades for the foreseeable future. Vehicles how come with overly bright LED headlights, large LED dash displays, and huge LED infotainment screens. Even in my 2020 Escape with it’s 8″ screen, I have to wear those nighttime shades if I have to drive long distances at night while using the navigation (Android Auto). Outside that, I put the dash to the “calm” screen and turn the infotainment screen off. It’s the way of the future; manufacturers aren’t going to make a vehicle for this specific millennial when everyone else in my generation wants screens all inside vehicles. It is what it is.

      hate how bright LED Head lamps are. Im always getting blinded, either the person heading my direction or the person 100′ behind me.

    The new mustang dashboard is even worse look than this one

    1. Craig

      Love the new mustang interior and dash

  8. Jay Jay

    That’s an absolute deal-killer for me. I hate vertical screens. I hate it in the Ram, I hate it in the Lightning, and I hate it in Teslas.
