I find several fascinations that are left out of most discussions:
-the wonderful safety feature of the vehicle being able to put itself into 'park', even if you forget!
-and the excellent 'zone lighting' options to light up the ground around the vehicle - what a WONDERFUL option when changing a tire is required, at night, on a lonely dark road, when murphy's law will say that it WILL be one of the tires on the downhill DITCH side of the vehicle, in high wet grass, of course.

Thanks for sharing. Have read through the list of options in this document, one stands out that I've not seen listed anywhere - "Rain sensing Windshield Wipers". Have I missed it or has it been listed on any of the trims? Maybe included and not listed, or maybe not included on the first year models?

I've just started reading through the doc in the last hour, however the one you note about putting itself into Park is something I really like from Tesla. If you pull to a stop, of course using regen will bring you to a stop, then automatically goes to hold, you can unbuckle, open the door and get out. The car will go to Park, and then lock when you walk away (using the phone as key).

I don't care if things like this are copied or if Ford has had them in their back pocket all along, but great features that have made driving a Tesla fun and convenient - very glad to see them over here. This truck is going to have to truly deliver and have some good innovation to keep me from making forever comparisons to Tesla.

This is something Ford and Lincoln have had for several years. Just not across the board, as it’s been phased in when models got electronic shifters. I think Lincoln might have debuted it for Ford, when certain models received the push button gear selectors.

Good question. My Mustang Mach E has this but I don't see it on the trim list for the Lightning.

I do see an automatic setting on the wiper of the Lariat I saw at the Washington DC Auto Show.

If you look at the order guide, it shows that the rain sensing wipers are on the 312A XLT, 511A Lariat, and the Platinum.

Included in 312A and 511A per the Order Guide.

Thanks @ChasingCoral and @Cutler03GT - I haven't been through the order guide. Auto wipers are enough of a bene I thought they would have been called out in the list of items included in those packages.

I found them in the Availability portion of the eSourcebook too, toward the end.

One thing I haven’t seen much info about in the Order Guide or eSourcebook is Push-button start. They mention it for 312A with the mention of Intelligent Access, but based on interior images of the Pro models, and the Technical Specifications sheet, it appears to be standard across all trims. It’s rare to not have it tied to Intelligent Access, but I’ve seen lower trim Fusions have Push-button start, but not have true Intelligent Access (touch to unlock/lock handles).

So how it works is, you need to unlock the doors via the unlock button on the fob, the FordPass app, or the Securcode keypad, but don’t need to take the key out of your pocket to start the vehicle.

While not as ideal as full blown Intelligent Access or Phone as a Key, I find this great for Pro and and XLT 311A shoppers, like myself. I currently have a 2020 XLT F-150 with keyed ignition and can’t wait to go back to Push-button start again. It used to require a Lariat prior to the 2021 refresh.

Intelligent Access with Push-button start is found on 312A XLT and all Lariats and Platinums. See Order Guide.

Right. Like I mentioned, they discuss it for intelligent access, but the Tech Specs sheet, and all the images I’ve seen of the Pro show push-button start on vehicles without Intelligent Access.

What do you make of this from page 88. Pro and XLT note "incl. spare". However the Lariat and Platinum specifically note "four" - I would assume for the count included. Spare included for these ?

I suspect the spare will be that 18” size and they’re awkwardly trying to communicate that the spare will not be a 20 or 22 inch matching one.

Does ChasingCoral or anybody know of another way to get this document? The link at the top is no longer active. Thanks.

I downloaded and saved the eSourceBook to my home computer. You're right, it's a good-sized document (41 Mb, 115 pages). Regardless, it makes for great reading. I have looked through half of the document so far and learned a number of new, helpful things. As a rookie EV'er, I appreciate all the knowledge I can absorb -- BEFORE I really need it! :)

Thank you. Lou C.
