Ford’s Ever-Evolving Tech Trounces Sporty & Luxury Competition

Ford’s status as the manufacturer of American’s favorite pickup is legendary and unchallenged. Today’s generation of the F-150 is Built Ford Tough, boasting a 13,000-pound tow rating. On top of the innumerable ways that the F-150 outperforms other pickups, it also comes with the same outstanding tech features as the rest of the Ford fleet. Here’s a spotlight on Ford tech features you should know about.

FordPass Connect

Who says that just because Built Tough Ford pickups do dirty work, they can’t be sophisticated and ahead-of-trend? Don’t be misled by the F-150’s huge muscles. This ride’s got major brains on top of brawn, across all trim levels, regardless of whether the pickup is a certified pre-owned, late model Ford in New Lenox or a brand-new pickup purchased from a leading Ford dealership in the heart of Illinois.

One of those standout tech features is FordPass Connect. FordPass Connect lets you and passengers enjoy a private, in-cabin Wi-Fi hotspot at 4G LTE speeds. The hotspot supports up to 10 devices and encompasses a radius up to 50 feet.
