Two notable exterior features of the 2021 Ford F-250 DRW Platinum are its power deployable running boards and its quad, dual-beam halogen headlamps. The running boards are an available feature that helps you get a step up into the cabin of the truck. They automatically fold in when you close the vehicle’s doors, which helps keep them from getting damaged while driving. The headlamps are designed to provide low and high beam outputs for a larger lighted area.
Adaptive Cruise Control, also known as ACC, is a driver-assist feature that helps you keep a certain speed on the highway. The ACC system can also detect the traffic ahead of your vehicle so that it can prevent forward crashes. It is not to be used in place of driver attention, but it can help prevent or lessen the impact of a crash in an emergency. All you have to do is set a cruising speed and a following distance from the vehicle ahead of yours.
The standard engine on this trim level is a 7.3 L 2V DECVT NA PFi Gas engine paired with either a TorqShift ®-G Heavy-Duty 6-speed automatic transmission for gas models or a 10-speed automatic transmission with selectable drive modes.
