All-New F-150 Platinum.

Ford Motor Company has issued safety compliance and safety recalls in North America for some selected 2020-21 Ford F-Series vehicles for windshield adhesion.

Affected vehicles do not comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards because the front windshields are inadequately bonded to the vehicle body structure. In the event of a crash, the windshield may not adequately stay in place, which may increase the risk of occupant injury.

Safety recall for select 2020 Ford F-Series Super Duty vehicles with 6.7-litre engines for labels with incorrect payload information

Affected vehicles display overstated payload capacity values on the tire and loading information label, overstated accessory reserve capacity values on the safety certification label, and overstated weight values on the truck camper loading documentation. If the vehicles are loaded to the payload stated on the tire and loading information label, they may exceed the gross vehicle weight rating or gross axle weight rating. This may result in tire loading beyond rated capacity, suspension overload and increased stopping distance, which could increase the risk of a crash.
