2022 F-150 Interior

The previous F-150 pickup truck had a solid cabin, but it wasn't as luxurious as what Ram brought to the table with its latest 1500. Ford knew it needed to up its game in this area and that's exactly what has been done inside the new F-150. Although the cabin doesn't look dramatically different, the materials are better, build quality is sturdy, the available 12-inch infotainment touchscreen is much-improved, and the top trims feel truly luxurious. Most people should be able to get used to the control layout quickly. There are some nifty available features like the transmission shifter that can fold away to open up a flat work surface, which is perfect for using a laptop on the job site, while Active Drive Assist will allow for hands-free driving on over 100,000 miles of highways in the US and Canada. The entry-level version has single-zone air conditioning and an eight-inch touchscreen, but the upper trims spoil you with leather upholstery, ventilated/heated seats, a 360-degree camera system, and much more. Yes, you can even get an F-150 with massaging seats.

Seating and Interior Space

Ford offers the F-150 in three different body styles, each with varying levels of passenger space. The Regular Cab is the smallest option with seating for up to three passengers on a single front bench. Opting for the SuperCab adds room for five (or up to six with the front bench) with a tight 33.5 inches of legroom in the back seats, accessed via rear-opening half doors. The SuperCrew is ideal for families or large work teams with its full-sized rear doors and seating for five or six with a whopping 43.6 inches of rear legroom. No matter which body style you get, headroom remains excellent with over 40 inches in the front and back seats. It is worth noting that the Ram offers better sliding and reclining rear seats that are more comfortable on long journeys. Ford does offer a feature called Max Recline seats on the King Ranch, Platinum, and Limited models, allowing the driver and passenger to drop back nearly 180 degrees to take a nap.

Interior Colors and Materials

The basic XL Regular Cab starts things off with Medium Dark Slate cloth upholstery or the same color scheme with tough vinyl upholstery. This same rugged approach continues with a urethane steering wheel and a floor covering in black vinyl. On the XL SuperCab, black sport cloth upholstery is optionally available. On the XLT, cloth upholstery is standard and another color choice, Baja Tan, becomes available. The first trim to offer standard leather front seats is the Lariat, with these offered in a choice of Medium Dark Slate, Black, or Baja Tan. A leather-wrapped steering wheel is also standard from this trim and up. Another welcome step up is the King Ranch which gets a Mesa leather-wrapped steering wheel, genuine wood interior accents, and a special Java color scheme for its leather-upholstered seats. The Platinum's classy cabin comes with multi-contour leather seats in either Black or Carmelo, while the Limited boasts an Admiral Blue leather-wrapped steering wheel and the same shade for its leather seats. This interior is a massive improvement over the previous generation and puts the F-150 much closer to the Ram 1500's level.

2022 F-150 Trunk and Cargo Space

The latest F-150 offers the same 5.5-, 6.5-, and eight-foot bed sizes as the outgoing model. The smallest box is only offered on the SuperCrew and has an inside length of 67.1 inches, a width between the wheelhouses of 51.1 inches, and a cargo volume of 52.8 cubic feet. In the middle of the pack is the 6.5-foot box which is offered on all three body styles. With its greater 78.9-inch length, cargo volume grows to 62.3 cubes. Finally, the eight-foot box on the Regular Cab and SuperCab has a 97.6-inch length and a cargo volume of 77.4 cubes. The Ram 1500 can't compete with the F-150's biggest box, but the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 leads the way here with up to 89.1 cubes of space when equipped with its own eight-foot box. However, the Ford F-150 pickup offers about as much space as anyone could need, along with an exceptional maximum payload capacity of 3,250 lbs for the Regular Cab 4x2 with the biggest box and the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine. That's around 1,000 lbs more than what the most capable Silverado can offer.

The new Ford F-150 is a large vehicle so unsurprisingly has numerous options for interior storage. On the base model, you don't get the massive center console as on other versions, but this is optionally available although seating capacity will be reduced. In the SuperCab and SuperCrew, the 60/40 rear bench can flip up for extra cargo space. Large cupholders make it easy to store cups or coffee or water bottles, while a wireless charging pad and a narrow slot to store your smartphone alongside the shift lever are useful. On the SuperCrew, an available fold-flat, partitioned storage compartment is available beneath the rear seat which is perfect for fishing rods and the like.

2022 F-150 Infotainment and Features

Features

From affordable workhorse to a luxury chariot that can rival some truly upscale sedans, the 2021 Ford F-150 lineup covers the full gamut. The base XL ships with manual single-zone air conditioning, a four-inch productivity screen, a tilt/telescoping steering wheel, automatic high beams, a rearview camera, and driver-assist technologies like pre-collision assist with automatic emergency braking. This version also gets trailer sway control, selectable driving modes with a tow/haul mode, and hill start assist.

One step above this is the XLT which adds cruise control, lane-keeping assistance, and rear parking sensors. After this, the sky - and your budget - are the limit as the F-150 can be equipped with dual-zone automatic climate control, rain-sensing wipers, heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, wireless charging, a power-adjustable and heated steering wheel, power-adjustable front seats with a driver's memory system, power-folding side mirrors, and a power tailgate. Additional driver-assist technologies include adaptive cruise control, a 360-degree camera system, front parking sensors, a forward sensing system, and active parking assistance that merely requires braking from the driver.

Outside, more expensive versions boast power-deployable running boards, LED security approach lamps in the side mirrors, and a twin-panel moonroof. The higher trim models like the King Ranch, Platinum, and Limited also gain access to massaging seats that now feel more effective than before. A power-sliding rear window is available too. The F-150's new Pro Power Onboard generator offers an output of up to 7.2 kW with the hybrid powertrain; believe it or not, this provides enough juice to power two RVs.

Infotainment

The XL and XLT standard trims receive an adequately-sized eight-inch touchscreen while the XLT with the High Package and above all get a massive 12-inch display powered by Ford's latest Sync4 infotainment system. This larger screen allows drivers to split the display, gaining access to two different functions at the same time. For example, a driver can have Apple CarPlay or Android Auto running wirelessly while also controlling the built-in radio. An available 12-inch digital gauge cluster can show off-roading and navigation data while changing themes based on the drive mode. An eight-speaker B&O Sound System starts on the XLT trim while the top three trims include an incredible 18-speaker B&O Unleashed system with speakers in the headliner and front headrests.
