Does anyone know if a 2014 F53 22k chassis has sealed wheel bearings or do they need to be regreased every 60K miles?

Wouldn’t Ford be the best responder to your question?

If non-sealed bearings repack every 60,000 miles and replace bearings every 150,000 miles per Ford. No mention of sealed bearings. LINK

"Replace front wheel bearing grease and grease seal if nonsealed bearings are used"
So not clear at all if unit-bearings are used.

EDIT: I'm bored.. Went looking and the only bearings available for 2014 F53 22K are standard (non-unit) bearings.
So they will need service at 60K.

Have fun! [emoticon]

No, it doesn't. Only non-sealed bearings are mentioned.
