Ford thinks there's a good chance windshields can pop off the latest F-Series trucks during a crash because they weren't properly bonded to the structure. And while no injuries have been reported yet, the automaker says this greatly increases the chances of something bad happening during a collision. Yep, that checks out. Owners should be on the lookout for recall notices during the first week of April.

About the Recall

  • This isn't exactly the best introduction for the 2021 model year which kicks off the F-150's 14th generation, but I doubt it will even cause a hiccup in the truck's long-running impressive sales streak.
  • The recall (#21C06) covers roughly 87,000 trucks in North America built at two seperate plants during specific dates.
  • Ford also announced a second minor recall for 2020 Super Duty trucks with the 6.7-liter engine. The trucks have incorrectly labled payload information which could allow some folks to overload their suspensions and tires.
