According to the Detroit Free Press, the recall affects 79,017 U.S. vehicles, 6,986 in Canada and 1,347 in Mexico, including 2021 Ford F-150 vehicles built at the Dearborn Truck Plant from Oct. 27 to Feb. 3. Also affected are 2020-21 Ford Super Duty vehicles built at the Kentucky Truck Plant from Oct. 13, to Jan. 23.

Separately, Ford is recalling nearly 10,000 2020 Ford F-Series Super Duty trucks – built at the Kentucky Truck Plant from May 13, 2019 to Sept. 19, 2020 – to replace labels printed with incorrect payload and reserve accessory capacity figures along with incorrect truck camper loading documentation, Fox Business reported.

The company said it will notify F-150 owners the week of April 6 with plans to remove and reinstall the windshield using standard service procedures.

Meanwhile, the issue does not affect the hybrid F-150s, Ford confirmed to the Free Press. The Ford F-150 Hybrid truck with Pro Power Onboard made global headlines after some victims of winter storms in Texas used the vehicle to power their homes.
