Ford recently launched its new Max Recline Seats for the Ford F-150, part of America’s best-selling pickup truck line for 43 years. These ergonomic seats make it easy for passengers to get comfortable, making the F-150 perfect for long shifts on a jobsite and family road trips.
These new available Max Recline Seats fold down to nearly 180 degrees for an almost flat lounging experience. According to Ben Kulhawik, a seat designer at Ford, the new Max Recline Seats were “inspired by those adjustable beds you see on TV.”
“We know the folks who work on construction or mining sites use their truck cab for naps during downtime, and we learned everyday owners do, too,” explained Jackie DiMarco, Ford truck product line director. “When I would take my daughters to hockey tournaments, between games, one would be sleeping in the back seat while the other would be on the floor of my truck, and it reinforced the idea that, ‘We need to fix this!’”
These seats are truly ingenious—and quite comfy. According to Ford, the design of the seats allows the seat bottom to rise to provide greater back support. You can also rotate the upper seatback forward to improve neck comfort.
You’ll be able to opt for the Max Recline Seats on the 2021 Ford F-150, specifically on King Ranch, Platinum, and Limited models.
If you are looking for a truck that delivers excitement and performance every time you get behind the wheel, then you need the Ford Ranger. Making this truck even better, Ford has announced three new Ford Performance upgrade packages.
These packages can help make the customization process easier with dealer-installed parts from aftermarket brands. They can be added on to any 2019 or 2020 Ford Ranger with four-wheel drive.
The Level 1 kit adds more off-road capability with FOX 2.0 Performance Series monotube shocks, 17-inch Dyno Gray wheels, Ford Performance graphics, and an off-road leveling kit.
With this upgrade package, the 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine has been recalibrated to deliver 16 percent more horsepower and 20 percent more torque. It also adds off-road fog lights, a stainless steel license plate frame, blue tow hooks, and impressive BF Goodrich tires.
The Level 3 package will be available next summer, and sounds like it’ll be worth waiting for. It includes everything from the Level 1 and 2 packages, except it sports red tow hooks instead of blue and has a better 30-inch LED lightbar. Additional features include a winch-capable front bumper, a Ford Performance sport exhaust, and a Ford Performance chase rack.
If you want the toughest off-road mid-size truck on the market, choose a Ford Ranger from Tropical Ford.
