In case you haven’t heard, Ford has an all-new F-150 pickup in the works. It’s been a long time coming, and we’ve had plenty of prototype sightings showing trucks all but revealed. We’ve also glimpsed the interior through leaked photos, but at this point we still haven’t narrowed in on the various tech upgrades the truck will receive.
Now, we know of one major step that was revealed by Ford’s Chief Product Development and Purchasing Officer, Hau Thai-Tang. The 2021 F-150 will have the infrastructure for over-the-air (OTA) updates.
Motor1.com reached out to Ford for confirmation on this, and we were sent a transcript of an interview between Thai-Tang and Bank of America Merrill Lynch Analyst John Murphy. The interview took place during Bank of America’s Global Auto Summit, and while the bulk of the discussion focused on financial aspects of moving the company forward, Thai-Tang did mention OTA capability for the new F-150.
