One word: Overdrive.
It is a free app, and lets you download 1000s. of digital audio books for free from your local library. I have no idea if my CD player actually works, doubt I will ever try.

Thanks F175, I will check out Overdrive.....I would still like a CD player for the 50+years of music I have on CD and would also like to play the many existing audiobooks my library has accumulated......My dealer told me there is there is no option for CD player on any '19 F150, not even a remote unit like Ram is offering ... do any aftermarket audio mfg's like Pioneer, Sony, Kenwood or ?? make a unit that fits and doesn't look like a hanging 8Track player? thanks all

Go to Amazon, there's tons of portable CD players wih Bluetooth. You could stick it wherever you want I. The truck and it'll work .

I usually buy some CD's from AMAZON, if I manage to find a gem. I rip the CD to MP3, put it on a USB stick and listen to the tunes that way. So the CD itself is been saved/stored safely at home. But yes, I would like to have a CD player in a new truck...Besides Ford cutting cost, what are you getting extra for that amount of cost saving? I understand that most will not use it, but are you sure Ford pass the savings on to you anyway? NOT.
