A block heater is a must for anyone living in freezing temperatures. It took a little getting used to (plugging in the truck when we got home), but it makes a difference on start-ups in the morning. This truck is also equipped with a crucial “instant on” heater feature. When you are parked in snow overnight, it can be a cold endeavor trying to get the climate control to finally blow heat. Ford’s optional instant-on heater gives us warm air in less than a minute after start-up—something very valuable in northern states. Also, the heated and air-conditioned seats spoil us. If your butt is too hot or too cold, the truck has a solution for you.
