I am looking at building a new 2024 F-150 Lariat or Platinum with the PowerBoost and 7.2Kw generator.

I have worked with the VP of Sales since 2016 at my dealer and he tells me I can't order the telescopic/folding towing mirrors with the PowerBoost engine.

Anyone know why and when this might get resolved?

I'm going to go out on a limb and probably guess they don't have them in stock?

Call Granger and see if they say the same thing.

Look at post #63 @Snakebitten :

... seems like Ford doesn't want to encourage towing with the 2024 PowerBoosts?

thanks, at least there's a reason for it. I had a 2021 Lariat Powetrboost and it towed just fine. This really sucks, I swiped a guardrail on the freeway and the insurance company totaled my truck and I need to buy a new one. I guess I need to find a used one :(
Or you could buy the tow mirror from Ford Accesories and have them dealer installed upon delivery. If you order the truck you should get 1/2 of its value in Ford Pass points up front. I believe they are $1,000 or so, you’ll get about $420 in free points if I remember correct.

I read on a internet search the mirrors would work but not the telescopic or folding due to the harness. Do you know this will work for a fact?

Here is the part # on Ford Accesssories for power fold and telescope. A little steeper than I thought, $1,900 so you’d be in $1,500 of your own $$.

is that for both mirrors or just one? I actaully have a passenger one from my 2021 F-150 from when it was replaced by insurance and the body shop gave me my old one back. There's nothing wrong with it so I'd just need one, but the question is the harness and will it work with the 360 camera.

does anyone know if the harness is the same and will work the power fold and telescoping?

I think it's 42,000 Ford points which is worth ~$200 (I think).

I'd like to go on record that I didn't agree with the assessment that the unavailability of Tow Mirrors was Ford intending to discourage towing with a Powerboost.
That's quite the leap!

So Ford discourages towing with ANY F150 that is sans towing mirrors? Towing mirrors aren't even forced on a truck that is equipped with towing packages, in the past.

Oh you might be right, now that you mention it I did have to kick in some money for my bed liner. I’m getting dementia at 25 :D

I am hoping they correct this issue for job 2.

:cautious:

I'm not at all confident that Ford views this as an "issue" requiring "correction", but I'll keep my fingers crossed for you (I certainly do understand the desirability of the option, and yeah, I'm baffled by its omission specific to the 2024 PB).

🤞
