Question for you all:
I ordered a Powerboost with Tow tech.
This means I have compared to trailer tow package (not max tow)
- same larger radiator (standard on powerboost)
- same transmission (all have same oil coolers seems for 2021)
- same 7350 gvwr frame (same for all PBs)
- same rear axle...
Yup. This is the 2015 (which I assume is the same until 2020) :
47.8 for 5.5ft bed Supercrew 4x4 and 4x2. Same as 2021 listed specs...
I'm hoping that the extra inch of tire on the 20's caused...
Yes. And I can confirm after driving theirs the radius is bigger.
You may be referring to the adaptive steering making it easier to maneuver in lots until you lock out (shorter turn to lock at lower speeds), which I agree is true and super nice.
Installed it on a Platinum Powerboost 4x4 shortbed. Fits, although on the axle, one U bolt is slightly angled because of some new wiring on the rear axle. No noises and definitely improves handling.
The cornering ability is kind of stupid now for a 6000lb body on frame pickup with the stiffest...
Does anyone feel it is worse on the 21s?
Listed as the same per ford's online spec.
My suspicion is that on my parent's 21 Platinum, turning is noticably worse than my old 2015 4x4 Lariat, because the 33" tires that come with the 20" wheels on the 21, as opposed to the 32" tires that come with...
It just occurred to me that I could try installing my Extang solid fold (1st gen not 2.0) Trifolding tonneau cover on my brother's 21 STX while I wait for my 21 Lariat.
And it fits! Even better than on my 15, because the clearance/approach angle on the tailgate closing is actually much cleaner...
Did palsapp show any status for you at time of delivery or leading up to? Atleast pending? My eta is still 5/24 and build date 4/24 somewhat similar to you, but palsapp shows nothing for my vin, while other trucks that have been delivered to my dealer have a freight bill.
I ordered 2/1, built 3/15 wrong color, correction ordered 3/11, built 4/24. Both are sitting in parts hell still.
Family however ordered mid January, built 5/3, and delivered today. Go figure.
All dearborn builds.
Saw on this forum that the 2015-2020 rear sway bar is compatible with the 21's
I took mine off my 15 today, which I am trading in.
HUGE difference in handling, minimal in ride quality.
I'd recommend for anyone who doesn't...
My brother picked up an STX at the end of last month and I've been driving it a good bit before my lariat comes heh.
It's a 2.7 ecoboost 4x4, Oxford white, with optional 20" STX rims.
1) Significantly quieter than my 2015 Lariat - even though I had dynamatted the doors and put michelin...
Good news all (I think...)
My window sticker today updated, showing "final assembly plant" and the "ship to" boxes populated.
It now resembles the state all of window stickers for delivered trucks at my dealer.
My first order (3/16 build date probably still on Ramp59)...
Mine moved from "In Production" (since 4/1 before Dearborn shutdown) to "In Production 4/22" today. The f150gen14 tracker is still behind/not showing the update.
This means the truck is actually going down the line, I'm pretty sure.
If I get changed to built/shipped in the next few days...
