How do you order the sliding tray on the beach seat? Or is it standard? Here is a link of what I am talking about. At 3:25

I keep getting conflicting information on the hybrid model and when it will be available. Some dealers in the Austin area seem to think its a late availability and won't be available until the summer. Some just have no idea at all.

What are you hearing? Why won't Ford provide any information on it?

I think it is all about allocation with the Powerboost. Some dealers are getting them and some are not. That is to say, what your dealer traditionally sells they are going to order. My local dealer sold 5.0L and Diesel's in 2020, so there were hardly ever any 3.5's on the lot. They didn't have a single Limited (that I saw) the entire year. But that's just my take...

I think enough folks in the forum have build dates for their Powerboost trucks (which come out of the Detroit...the first plant converted) to believe there is no delay.

Before these trucks hit the lot, they need EPA ratings, so if Ford drops the EPA rating soon, that will be an indication.

Finally, and I know this is a long post, Ford is expecting only 10% of truck buyers to opt for Powerboost. If there is a delay in production, it would be because the market outpaced their estimates and they don't have the parts/engine/battery packs to build them.

We are being told that it will release for retail production in December, that is subject to change...

I have 3 ordered for customers and they are processing but no VIN yet...
Thanks for your response.
I've had my VIN for a few weeks, but haven't really followed up since then for a status. Trying really hard to maintain an "it'll get here when it gets here" attitude. 😎

Info I've been getting in an unofficial manner it's looking like Job1 or OKTB status is targeted to start 12-13 Nov. Fingers crossed...

The end of this month first of Nov, those with retail orders should start seeing some movement in their scheculing and VINs assigned. Provided of course your order does not have any late availability options.

Would a 157" powerboost be a late(r) availability? IIRC the 157" wheelbase trucks are all produced in the other plant.

Maybe this should be a new thread, but I want the Granger man to wade in. Is there a build and price site that would give me the invoice price? I have been away from this site for awhile so perhaps this question has been addressed already. I have a F-150 built with MSRP, but don’t have a feel for invoice. Thanks in advance for any help.

From the Order Guide, it appears that Trailer Reverse Guidance is standard when you add the stand alone option for the 360 camera.

The other addition to the truck with the Max Trailer Tow Package (as shown in the 2021 F-150 Technical Specifications guide that was posted on the site over a month ago is slightly larger rear brakes. 350 mm diameter x 24 mm thick rotors, as opposed to 336 x 20. Same calipers and pads either way. The slightly larger rear brakes probably account for some increased trailer weight rating.

For the 2020 F-150, 4x4 Super Crew 5.5 Box, it looks like Max Trailer Tow added 2000 lbs of trailer weight over just the tow package, going from 10,500 to 12,500 with the 3.5 ecoboost and 3.55 rear end.

Still, we're paying a lot of cash, and not getting any credit for the standard features like the reciever hitch and brake controller on the higher trims, to get the Max Trailer Tow Package. Essentially $1500 extra to go with Max Tow and 360 Camera, as opposed to going with the Tow Technology package. The only differences I can find are the upgraded bumper, bigger rear brakes, and ability to order the tow mirrors.

But if you are buying your truck with the intention to tow with it, there really isn't much of a choice. Based on the 2020 numbers Max Tow is going to give you 2000 lbs of extra trailer rating, and if you need it, you need it. You can always upgrade the brakes on your own later, but if you ever have warranty claims and they figure out you were towing too heavy they can void your warranty...
Did you account for the larger gas tank and the e-locking rear end upgrades.

I did not, simply because I ordered a PowerBoost, which already comes with the 3.73 E-Locker, and has a unique fuel tank size because of the battery. These are additional options that I've already paid for in ordering the PowerBoost I wish they would discount from the price of the Max Trailer Tow Package, but oh well. But yes, people buying the Max Trailer Tow Package with one of the other powertrains do get those added benefits.

Yes that is bs from Ford then the you can’t just get the bumper and then buy the tow tech pack.
