  1. Trying to decide between two 2021 F-150 Platinum Hybrids... looking for input

    i have the carmelo interior - no max recline or work station. I LOVE the carmelo interior - it really feels so much more luxurious and. .... expensive. I've had black the last 6 years in my 2 F-150s - this is an awesome change. I have 2 child car seats, so did not get the max recline (cause...
  2. Use ProPower without starting the vehicle

    Can I use the propower without first getting into the vehicle and starting it up? I'm aware that the pro power ultimately need to eventually turn on the vehicle to recharge the battery in order to continue the power draw --> but even if I start the vehicle up from my key fob (or the FordPass...
  3. Dark mode / night mode for SYNC screen?

    there is - it's called "night mode" and of course I can't remember where in the systems setting it is - look for "display" - but it's there.....

  5. (Jan 14) Report on 2021 F-150 Production Update and Constraints

    am i reading this right? the moonroof is not available with any engine option UNLESS it's the powerboost? maybe they're prioritizing builds with the highest margin? interesting.....

    I did this once - leased 2015 Lariat Sport with optional 20inch wheels. Hated them. I spoke to the dealer - as my lease had already included the cost of the 20inch wheels, they switched them with another Lariat Sport that had the regular 18inch wheels, and just put a new mark up on that stock...
  7. Fake engine sound

    unpopular opinion - i would love a dial where I could turn the "fake" sound UP if I wanted - I'm getting the powerboost, and while i generally love how quiet my current 3.5L EB is, sometimes I just want a nice V8 rumble. Would be happy to add MORE piped noise in if I could....
  8. 2021+ F-150 Orders Tracking List & Stats [Enter Yours!]

    can you post a link? I've seen various tires on posts with the Platinums. Some have the BSW Scorpions (https://www.pirelli.com/tires/en-us/car/catalog/product/scorpion-atr/275_60-r20) - others have a white lettering. If someone can be specific about which tire on which model - as I think...
  9. 2021+ F-150 Orders Tracking List & Stats [Enter Yours!]

    Just what the dealer gave me. I assume they all use the same systems (for the most part), but not certain. I'd ask the dealer specifically if I were you.
  10. (Dec 10) Report on 2021 F-150 Production Update and Constraints

    so (i'm sure this has been answered, but hell if I can find it in the forum) - finally got a VIN - my dealer told me a build date (1/22) - but that's NOT appearing any of the tracking sheets. Will it ever appear? Or do I have to wait until it moves into "scheduled" status. Seems like the dealer...
  11. 2021+ F-150 Orders Tracking List & Stats [Enter Yours!]

    Has anyone ordered a Platinum with the CARMELO interior - and actually has a build date / VIN? None of the dealers close to me have that interior on their Platinums. I wonder if that's a hold up?
  12. Production problems resulting in 7 month wait

    I ordered mine in September. Platinum, hybrid, 4x4, moonroof - nothing else. Still no VIN or build. Emailed my dealer requesting they re-prioritize my order (apparently, it's currently code 015). No idea what's going on.... Glad for those that have VINs.
  13. 🧭 Track Your F-150 Order by VIN Number

    great work! I just need my VIN to get the most of out - order placed in September and NO CHANGE in status.....no idea what's going on.....
  14. Platinum Interior Question

    Has anyone who ordered the carmelo interior received a VIN or build-date yet? I ordered a carmelo interior AND a powerboost engine (3 months ago) - no VIN or build date assigned yet. Not sure if it's because one of these two items is in short supply, or my dealer has that many retail orders...
  15. Platinum Interior Question

    I'm sticking it out too - hopefully the delay isn't long - it's quite a classy interior, and worth waiting for availability (if the rumors are true). That, coupled with the supposed limitation in the PB engine option, means this will unlikely be a Christmas present for me....
  16. King Ranch vs Platinum vs Limited

    Exclusivity - you hit the nail on the head. You can always say the blue interior color, or the LED floor scuff plates are the upgrades - but in reality, it's just marketing & badging.
  17. Crowdsourced questions for your F-150 test drives

    Yep! with 2 child seats, my rear seat NEVER goes up......I would love this storage option, but would never have a chance to use it....
  18. Question about changing grills and wheels

    So i was going down a similar path for my 2018 Lariat Sport. My dealer said they could just order a pre-painted part directly from Ford - about $1,000. Alternatively, I trolled Ebay, and found I could get a pre-painted version for about $500-$600 --> but never went further to see if they were...
  19. Powerboost or standard 3.5

    To me - that's the biggest surprise. Only 10%? Maybe once you start taking fleet into account.....I just expected higher (esp. if you poll the crowd on this forum.....).
