2021 Ford F-150 interior revealed in new spy photos
The big Ford gets a big screen and a digital gauge cluster


Ford F-150 2021 F-150 Interior Revealed, Showing Large Screen and Digital Gauge Cluster FordF-150.int01.KGP_2


Not a week seems to go by lately without multiple Ford truck revelations, and the latest comes courtesy of a new set of spy photos depicting the 2021 Ford F-150's updated interior.

From these shots, we can see that the general shape of the dashboard remains relatively unchanged, but the stuff crammed into it is definitely getting some revision. Based on the prototypes we've seen photographed over the past few weeks, we're guessing this yet another Platinum model, so keep that in mind in terms of feature content.

We'll start with the main event: the infotainment screen. This new unit is pushed just about to the edges of its available real estate. We can see that it's running the latest version of Sync, which is no surprise at all, and mercifully it appears that Ford retained physical volume and tuning dials. You'll find both controls beneath the screen, where they are on the current model.

The dial closest to the infotainment screen is likely for the trailer backup assist system. You'd be forgiven for mistaking it for a gear selector, as it appears to use the same physical hardware that is used for exactly that purpose in other Fords, but if you look closely at the blurred area of the center console, you'll see that a traditional gear selector remains in place.

Accompanying this larger screen appears to be a full digital gauge cluster. Current F-Series trucks have fixed gauges with available full-color displays, so this would be a natural upgrade. We expect Ford will pull these right out of the parts bin, as the Ford Explorer and Escape (along with Lincoln's newer models) already have full-color, animated digital clusters available on higher-trim models.

The unveiling of Ford's latest juggernaut shouldn't be too far away at this point, so stay tuned for the latest as we creep closer to the kick-off of the Blue Oval's 2020 product blitz.

This is a nicely designed integration of a big screen into the dash! Hate all the tacked on ipad look that some manufacturers are going with now.

Totally agree. And I like the square screen rather than going long vertical like Ram.

What size does this screen look like to you guys?

Looks like about 12" diagonally to me. Not a fan of vertical screens in vehicles either.

I'm estimating 12" too. Makes sense since the new Ram screen is 12" too so I bet Ford matches.

I do like the screen size and placement, but it sure looks like Ford is still craping the interior up with all that hard plastic. And this looks like one of the premium models too. What the hell does that say for an XLT or XL?????? HARD PLASTIC crap!!! Dam Ford, come on!!!

Still a preproduction model and can't see all the surfaces yet though. Instrument hood and passenger dash trim stitched leather looking nice though. I like the contrast color.

Unfortunately, if Ford sticks with current trims, you will only see this on the top trim levels.
