The folks lining up to be one of the early adopters of the 2021 Ford F-150 can’t order a few features on their new truck. Max Recline seats and the Power Stroke 3.0-liter turbodiesel V6 weren’t available when the next-generation pickup first hits showrooms, according to Cars Directanalysis of the dealer ordering guide.
Motor1.com contacted Ford to confirm this information and to find out when these features would be available. We have not yet received a response from the company.
When available, Max reclining seats add $ 340 to the price of the truck, and they’re only available on the premium King Ranch, Platinum, or Limited trims. These chairs can bend almost 180 degrees. When in use, the lower pad lifts up and the rear support swivels up to 10 degrees forward. This creates a place for a more comfortable nap for the driver or front passenger.
The ordering guide states that full recline seats have late availability, depending on Cars Direct. The document doesn’t say exactly when to expect the functionality, however.
Ford is not yet indicating the release of the Power Stroke V6 in the 2021 F-150. The existing version produces 250 horsepower (186 kilowatts) and 440 pound-feet (597 Newton-meters). As for the seats, it is not yet known when the turbodiesel engine joins the range.
The dealer’s ordering guide already tells us that the 2021 F-150 starts at $ 30,635 for the XL trim with a 4×2 drivetrain and regular cab setup. However, don’t expect to see many of these new trucks in this base spec.
On the other end of the spectrum, the price of a fully loaded F-150 Limited could exceed $ 80,000, if a customer wants it with the hybrid engine. This trim level is very well equipped with features like a mesh material on the dashboard, leather upholstery, an 18-speaker Bang & Olufsen stereo and a two-panel sunroof.
Look for deliveries of the 2021 F-150 to begin deliveries this fall.
