What did you NOT expect, but LOVE about your '21 F-150?

all in all, pretty happy with this thing, but sheer length makes it difficult to park at times.
360 cameras helps with this so much. I will never ever have a truck without 360 cameras.

Especially given it's generous turning radius.
I was entering a parking lot today with a tight entrance; another 2021+ F150 was coming out. We both kinda looked at each other with a 'This ain't gonna work' look. I stopped short, let him go first and we did a quick wave and nod as he went by..

It’s truly my only complaint. Coming from a 2020 Ranger, it’s way worse.

Everything else, I love.

The surprise with the most impact was when I couldn't quite get the seating position just right and remembered that telescoping steering columns were a thing but I had never had one. On a whim, I loosened the adjustment lever, gave a little pull on the steering wheel, and BAM, driving bliss.

I am amazed out quiet my truck is. I drove our other car today to take the dogs to the groomers and I couldn't believe how the road noise floods the interior. Also, the clarity of the Unleashed stereo. I have hearing loss and wear hearing aids. I can understand lyrics now on many songs that were always a little muddy.

I agree with you 100%. It is very quiet. However, I have noticed that rain storms are kind of loud. I live in Miami and get rain everyday in the summer. Its very loud on the front part of the roof. Other then that My truck is perfect.

you guys will laugh, but best feature for me is the easy exit/entry. my 2013 Lexus RX350 had it and i loved it.
side note, glare free is truly bad ass.

I can’t seem to turn off the ventilated seat so I’m guessing that was my big surprise as I’ve never had one before.

My last trucks were a 1998 F-150 and a 2006 F-150 and this 2021 (all were SuperCabs) has by far the worst turning radius 🤦‍♂️

HA! I get this. I had a 2019 and the only thing worse about the F150 is its size. It's better than the Ranger EVERYWHERE else (PowerBoost MPG)

For me it’s the seat comfort, I had a ‘16 XLT and seats were terrible then a ‘20 Lariat and the seats were marginally better. When I sat in my ‘21 Lariat I was in love. The adaptive headlights are awesome as well.

All the safety stuff like the lane keep assist, auto hold, pre collision braking, and the auto high beams. I was impressed all these safety aids came on the entry trim.

Also didn’t expect the remote start, Ford Pass is awesome.

Yep, turning radius on this behemoth (Supercrew w/ 6' 7" bed) truly sucks. There's no way to park this thing in a store parking lot without lotsa back and forth.
As much as I like this new Ford, I kinda miss my '94 GMC w/5 speed manual.
