Fortunately, Ford had enough forethought to include a button on the dash you could press that defeated the deactivation "feature", but you had to remember to press it every time you started the truck. You would think Mazda could add a button to turn off the deactivation without too much trouble.
Just for the record, the feature on the F150 - is NOT cylinder deactivation. It has the Start-Stop feature. The entire engine shuts down, then restarts. There is not an F150 produced that has cylinder deactivation.

Here is some more info on the recall coming:
