2020 Ford F-150 Interior Review

Scorecard

Interior: 8.7

The 2020 Ford F-150 looks good inside, and there are plenty of quality materials (though there are also a few hard plastics). The front seats are comfortable, and cab styles with rear seats have plenty of space for adult passengers. Lots of tech and driver assistance features are available, including the user-friendly SYNC 3 infotainment system.

  • "The F-150 is solidly built and, despite its workhorse intentions, the Lariat trim has an interior that's plush and free of squeaks and creaks. Some of the plastics look and feel cheap, but it's put together well." -- Edmunds (2019)
  • "The 2019 F-150's interior is rugged and attractive, but above all, it's easy to use." -- Kelley Blue Book (2019)
  • "Today's pickup truck is a laughably lavish way to spend an afternoon. Top F-150 trim levels have miles of leather with contrasting stitching (the dark blue Navy Pier option is the best), a big, easy-to-use touchscreen and massaging front seats -- in a pickup! But Ford did keep it real with big knobs for tuning, volume and climate control." -- Autoweek (2018)

Seating

The F-150 seats up to three in Regular Cab models and up to six in SuperCab and SuperCrew models. Cloth upholstery is standard, and flip-up rear seats are standard in SuperCab and SuperCrew models.

Vinyl or leather upholstery, front bucket seats, power-adjustable front seats, heated and ventilated front seats, massaging front seats, a heated steering wheel, and heated rear seats are available.

The front seats provide enough head- and legroom for everybody to get comfortable, and they're easily adjustable so you can find a suitable position. SuperCab models provide adequate room for adults to ride in the back, and the SuperCrew's rear seats are especially spacious.

For installing child safety seats, F-150 models with rear seats have two complete sets of LATCH connectors for the outboard seats, as well as an upper tether for the middle seat. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the tether anchors are hard to find and can be confused with other hardware, which is typical for pickups. You’ll have no such trouble with the lower anchors.

  • "The fabric-trimmed seats felt more comfortable than the leather options, and rear-seat room is bigger than most full-size sedans." -- Autoweek (2018)
  • "Large and tall occupants will find plenty of space, yet the driving position is adjustable enough to prevent smaller drivers from feeling as if they're in a cavern. The SuperCrew's back row will comfortably seat three tall adults, with plenty of head- and legroom as well as shoulder room." -- Edmunds (2018)
  • "The SuperCrew (crew cab) is extremely roomy, with rear-seat legroom that would make some full-size sedans envious. … Also making the cab comfortable are seats that have been carefully sculpted to reduce fatigue." -- Kelley Blue Book (2017)

Interior Features

Standard features in the F-150 include an AM/FM radio, a rearview camera (with Dynamic Hitch Assist), forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, and curve control. Some of these features belong to Ford's Co-Pilot360 suite of technology.

The SYNC 3 infotainment system is intuitive and easy to use, and its straightforward interface is simple to navigate. In most trucks, the lowest trim is only intended as a work vehicle, which is why the standard features list is so short.

Available features include the voice-activated SYNC connectivity system, the SYNC 3 infotainment system, an 8-inch touch screen, a Bang & Olufsen audio system, satellite radio, navigation, Bluetooth, a USB port, a Wi-Fi hot spot, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. MyKey, a moonroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, and push-button start are also available.

Available active safety features include blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, rear parking sensors, a surround-view parking camera system, adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, driver drowsiness monitoring, and active park assist.

  • "When it comes to upscale features, the F-150 doesn't disappoint, with such cool offerings as a 3-prong outlet, 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, adaptive cruise control and the excellent Sync 3 infotainment system that, via its 8-inch touch screen, can fully integrate with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "A clear display with logical menu structure and crisp graphics. Screens switch reasonably briskly. The map supports swipes and pinch-and-zoom functions. Audio quality has tight bass and minimal distortion at elevated volume with B&O Play premium audio." -- Edmunds (2019)
  • "The 2018 F-150 gets a number of new active safety features, including pre-collision assist with pedestrian detection. The most notable new feature is the adaptive cruise control specifically designed and tuned with trailer towing in mind. This is the first application of this in a light-duty truck. Like other systems, Ford's adaptive cruise uses a combination of radar and cameras. It can bring the truck and trailer down to a complete stop." -- Autoblog (2018)

Cargo

The F-150 offers three bed lengths: 5 feet, 6 inches; 6 feet, 6 inches; and 8 feet. Not every bed length is available with every cab style, but they all offer plenty of features to make hauling things easier. These include integrated LED lighting, stowable loading ramps, an integrated tailgate step, and Ford’s BoxLink system, which provides moveable tie-downs to make it easier to secure cargo.

You don't have to put all your cargo in the bed, however. The cabin provides plenty of small-item storage, and SuperCab and SuperCrew models have rear seats that flip up to give you room for large items.

  • "The F-150's floor is flat, making the middle rear seat comfortable, while also allowing more room for storage." -- Kelley Blue Book (2016)
  • "The best innovations, though, might be the simplest ones. There's now a flat floor in the cabin so you can actually stack boxes when you fold the rear seats, and the new BoxLink system adds four anchors in the sides of the bed that allow drivers to hook in tie-downs, bungee cords, or E-track, a cargo-management system familiar to those who move snowmobiles, ATVs, and the like in trailers." -- Car and Driver (2015)
  • "There are a brace of LEDs to illuminate the cargo box, too, and a rather trick optional Boxlink cargo management system employing easily configurable cleats to restrain loads or hang ramps out of the way." -- Autoblog (2015)
