The upcoming 2021 Ford F-150 FX4 will finally become available. Many fans were disappointed once the new-gen F-150 arrived last summer. The Blue Oval manufacturer missed offering the Raptor variant, although we know Raptor usually becomes available later in the year. Moreover, the FX4 off-road package was not in the offer as well. It is an impressive off-road performance package that costs only $900.
There were plenty of speculations about its availability, but nothing really happened. Now, the 2021 F-150 will finally get its FX4 package, and it will add more customization for the customers. On the other hand, the FX4 package will now cost slightly more, $1,005 to be more precise. We still think it is an affordable add-on and here’s what it offers.
2021 Ford F-150 FX4 Package Details
The upcoming 2021 Ford F-150 FX4 will offer various modifications. Unlike the regular F-150 full-size pickup truck, the FX4 package will improve the performances and truck’s off-road capabilities. For a start, this package comes with the unique bodyside decal.
Moreover, it adds various exterior features, such as skid plates. The F-150 FX4 comes with more ground clearance and new all-terrain tires. Interestingly, tires options are tied to a chosen powertrain option. Additional styling improvements will cost additionally.
Unfortunately, the new 2021 Ford F-150 FX4 won’t introduce interior upgrades of any kind. That means the cabin remains exactly the same. The FX4 package is focused on the mechanics, more than on the interior. However, regular F-150 will introduce various updates, and FX4 will get the same treatment. The cabin is modern, and it provides plenty of room.
Comfort is great, and generally, the ride is pleasant. New 2021 F-150 will get larger touchscreen that is optional. Ford will remove some buttons, and it will also add more driver-assistance features. The FX4 treatment is available on various trim levels, which will largely determine the level of luxury on the inside.
2021 Ford F-150 FX4 Engine Options
In terms of performance, the new 2021 Ford F-150 FX4 offers various powertrain options. This package can be had with a 5.0-liter V8, 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6, and a 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6. Moreover, a 3.0-liter turbodiesel V6 is available. The package will improve the off-road capability thanks to the latest mechanical upgrades. No matter which trims level you opt for, FX4 adds an electronic locking rear axle.
While standard 4×4 trucks are using the standard suspension, the FX4 package provides unique suspension with off-road-tuned front shock absorbers. Moreover, Hill Descent Control is available, along with the transfer case. Additionally, Rock-Crawl mode will be in the offer too. A hybrid powertrain is speculation, but even if it becomes available, the FX4 package won’t have that option.
Price and Release Date
The forthcoming 2021 Ford F-150 FX4 package is available on the XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch and Platinum trim levels. The new package will cost $1,005, so if you opt for the base XL trim, it will cost you $36,000. Blue Oval automaker will launch its new F-150 truck by the end of the year.
