Ford is preparing even bigger plans for its famous F-150 model. The forthcoming 2021 Ford F-150 will be the next-generation model. After the latest spy shots, some things are clearer. The iconic pickup truck has been caught during the testing. The spied model came in a Super Cab variant. Besides that, the Crew Cab body style will be available as well.
The exterior of the 2021 F-150 will get numerous upgrades and changes. Blue Oval is preparing a redesign of its best-selling model. On the other hand, the interior won’t suffer that much. Only minor upgrades will happen from the inside. As for the performance, new F-150 will finally deliver both hybrid and all-electric variants. On top of that, the Raptor variant will become available later in 2020.
2021 Ford F-150 Design Review
When it comes to its appearance, the 2021 Ford F-150 will change, significantly. Dimensions and the overall vehicle’s shape will remain, however. On the spy photos, we take a look at the F-150 model Super Cab model. Unfortunately, some parts of the exterior are not visible. Rear door design will largely remain. Headlights are equipped with LED technology.
LED headlamps will be standard on the 2021 model. The redesign will include a new look of the front fascia. The new front grille is perhaps the highlight of the latest revamp. Also, this pickup will ride on new 17-inch wheels. Blue Oval will install new taillights and new receiver hitch. Overall, the 2021 model will be the best one so far.
Interior Rumors and Changes
Clearly, interior design wasn’t in the Blue Oval’s focus for 2021. The cabin design will largely remain. Moreover, even the interior layout is intact. The 2021 Ford F-150 will get minor upgrades, mostly in terms of technology.
That includes more safety equipment and updated SYNC3 infotainment system. Of course, the new model will introduce more standard features than ever before. We hope Ford will introduce new interior color schemes. There will be the same number of trim levels as before. That means if you want luxury, upper trim levels are the right choice.
2021 Ford F-150 Powertrain
2021 will be a great year for the famous F-150 model. Ford will finally introduce both hybrid and all-electric versions of the truck. The next-gen 2021 Ford F-150 will surely keep some of the current gasoline engine options. Powerful EcoBoost V6 will be offered as standard powertrain choice once again. However, in order to stay above the competition, F-150 will get a hybrid drivetrain. It is one of the most significant upgrades in recent history. On the other hand, exact drivetrain specs are not available yet. Ford will surely look to mate a 3.5-liter V6 with an electric motor.
This will result in better performances and significantly better fuel economy. An all-electric F-150 is another thing that will happen in 2021. A fully-electric F-150 will most likely ride on a unique platform and it will deliver astonishing mileage. As for the Raptor variant, this model will deploy a 7.0-liter DOHC V8 that will produce 410 HP and 435 lb-ft of torque. Even the Raptor Hybrid version is a possibility. However, if it happens, Raptor will also use a 3.5-liter V6.
Price and Release Date
We can expect higher starting price. Future 2020 model will start at around $30,000. The 2021 Ford F-150 will surely cost at least $33,000. After the redesign and new powertrain options, this pickup will get its first major price increase in recent years.
