Ford lovers, rejoice! The 2021 Ford F-150 pickup truck series will soon be released, and there are some changes you might be interested to know beforehand. The F-series has long been a top seller all across the U.S. with over 4 million vehicles sold after Ford released the 13th generation of the 2015-year model, and it seems that trend won’t change with the new models to come.
Not Much New for the Exterior
Switching to an aluminum-intensive body was the last generation’s big change, and Ford is sticking to that decision with the new one. Aside from the same sheet metal, the F-150’s will keep its shape almost the same with some nose changes and new headlights. If you’re a huge fan, you’ll also spot new taillights, but that’s about it for the exterior.
Ford Is Catching up to Ram’s Upscale interiors
It’s no secret Ram has been stealing the spotlight lately with upscale interiors, so Ford will be catching up on that trend for its Limited, King Ranch, and Platinum 2021 models. The interior will now include a standard infotainment display (8 inches) or an optional 15.5-inch display both of which run on Sync 4, Ford’s latest software.
The Raptor will lose its leaf springs for coil ones, and according to rumors, it may run on Mustang Shelby GT500’s 760-hp supercharged 5.2-liter V-8. We’re yet to see. With more model variations than ever, the F-150 series will range from $30,000 to almost $100,000.
The Electric F-150 Enters the Market
Ford is the first car manufacturer to offer a plug-in hybrid in the half-ton-truck market which is pretty revolutionary. The electric motor will be sandwiched between a 10-speed auto and a V-6 turbo. Some even say the company is planning to launch a series of electric trucks a few years after this electric F-150 model. We shall see.
