I was wondering if there is any news if they might have 4 corner air ride suspension or something like that.

From all the pics/articles about the spied prototypes, I think the only trim model that could possibly feature air ride suspension is the electric F150 which has been spotted with independent rear suspension. The regular 2021 F150 has been spotted with leaf springs and the new Raptor with coil spring suspension.

Adaptive / adjustable air suspension would actually make sense on the electric F150 since it's going to weigh a lot more with its batteries.

If they want to compete with ram they might want to try and add air suspension to xlt or lariat and higher.

There are actually air lead spring suspension systems but I’ve only seen aftermarket applications and never one from a manufacturer.

Agreed. With more companies offering it on more models now, it’s a pretty common option now. New Tahoe and Suburban just got air suspension option for the upper trims. Then again they also got IRS for this generation.

I am looking at the Torque brand Air Bag Suspension Kit for load leveling while towing my travel trailer. I think Air ride and Firestone also make a kit for the F150, but not sure if theirs are out yet for the 2021. Has anyone else installed one of these air bag systems?
