With it, the source said it wouldn’t be hard to live in the pickup truck. There might be a joke in here somewhere about new truck rivaling some mortgages.
Ford declined to comment for this story.

Past spy shots showed a heavily reworked interior with ain the center and a digital gauge cluster. The features will definitely be a part of the Lariat trim level, while fancier variants could be even more lavish.
On Thursday, we also got our first official look at the, with massive LED signature lights creating a bracket-like look. And we know this new model will eventually usher in an , which will pair electrification with the truck’s V6 engine. Reuters says the new pickup will support over-the-air updates as well, which indicates will ride with the 2021 F-150.
