The 2021 F-150 is simplifying the cargo process - enabling Alberta drivers to immediately assess, and correct, bed-weight with digital precision.

According to AutoBlog, the new F-150 will soon unveil its Onboard Scales feature. Sensors will be mounted into the bed, automatically calculating every pound. They will then feed the information into the SYNC 4 media console (as well as the FordPass app), allowing drivers to keep track of their payloads with greater efficiency. Additionally, LED light-bars will be integrated into the rear tail-lamps. These will engage when extra cargo is added - delivering a four-position scale that will raise or lower in relation to the total amount of weight. If the truck’s capacity is exceeded, these bulbs will blink rapidly so that adjustments can be made.

Through this, drivers can take advantage of the F-150’s available payload performance of 2,238 pounds - without pushing the truck beyond its limits. This assures a safer cargo experience, and it enables superior control. 

The Onboard Scales feature should debut in June. To learn more about it contact our team today - and don’t forget to schedule a test-drive in one of our available F-150 models.
