Is it just me?! I have the power pedal but it keeps the gas and brake tied together and the brake feels wayyyy too far forward. Anything I’m missing or I just need to get used to it?
 
When I first got in to drive it , it thought the same thing. It seems way to far out for my taste. Anyway to adjust it?
 
For me the brake is too close to me. The gas and brake seem farther apart (distance from driver) than most cars
 
I agree. Not sure why the brake pedal is so much closer to the driver. Reminds me of my '96 F150.
 
I actually like the pedal layout - feels exactly my my 2001 F250 that I racked up a ton on miles one. It's about the only thing that feels familiar between the two trucks. I do have the movable pedals and adjusted it to my liking though....

Yeah mine does too but it’s the difference in the gas / brake that throw me off
 
Are both pedals independently adjustable or is it just the gas pedal with the brake moving along with it?
 
Reviving an old thread here since I had this issue and it took me weeks of searching to find the solution...

This applies to ford power adjustable pedals only. This will result in reduced adjustment depending on how far you adjust the single pedal.

The pedals are adjusted by square-drive cables driven by a motor up in the dash. Extend the pedals to the bottom position of their travel. On the brake pedal, reach up above the pedal and find where the cable (about 3/8" diameter) meets the adjustment screw. Simply undo the twist lock and pull the cable out of the adjustment screw assembly and place out of the way. At this point, you have (mechanically) disabled the power adjustment for the brake pedal.

Next, use the power adjust toggle to move the accelerator pedal to the desired position. For me, this was about half of the available travel.

Finally, reconnect the square-drive cable to the adjuster screw assembly and twist lock back into place.

I was able to put my pedals in a much more comfortable position while still retaining about half of the adjustment of both pedals using the toggle.

To undo, simply follow process in reverse.

Hopefully this helps some of you out there!

Very clear and makes total sense. Thanks for sharing this!!
 
Bumping this thread, as I plan to do this tonight.
