The upcoming 2021 Ford F-150 is still the best pickup truck in the world. This model offers literally everything you can imagine. It is available in numerous trim levels, cab configurations, and special editions. On top of that, F-150 comes with gasoline and diesel engines.
After the Ford confirmed hybrid powertrain, an all-electric F-150 is also about to arrive. Thanks to that, Blue Oval manufacturer covered every category so the customers can choose the version they prefer. The sales will start later in 2020 and F-150 will get a small jump in terms of price.
2021 Ford F-150 Redesign
The upcoming 2021 Ford F-150 won’t introduce significant changes in terms of design. Generally, new pickup truck won’t largely depart from the outgoing model. Still, a couple of minor visual upgrades will happen. We must say that the hybrid or all-electric versions won’t stray from the regular gasoline-powered F-150. The only difference is the charging port on the driver’s side.
The front fascia looks both stylish and aggressive at the same time. Grille remains but the headlights are restyled. This model continues to offer standard 17-inch wheels. Ford will also work on new lightweight materials so the fuel efficiency will be additionally improved.
New 2021 Ford F-150 offers one of the best interior designs in the segment. After Chevrolet decided to deliver major interior updates to its pickup trucks, Ford will do the same. That means the new F-150 model will gain more high-tech amenities. That includes a new infotainment system and new driver-assistance aids. On the other hand, nothing will change in terms of interior layout and interior design.
Displays will get a new interface that is also more responsive and easier to use. Safety is at admirable level but Blue Oval will improve this category as well. Again, interior of the regular gasoline F-150 and the interior of the F-150 Hybrid won’t be different.
2021 Ford F-150 Engine Specs
Under the hood, the approaching 2021 Ford F-150 will offer a lot of powertrain options. The customers can choose between gasoline, diesel, hybrid, and all-electric powertrains. F-150 offers a 3.0-liter turbodiesel with 250 hp and 440 lb-ft of torque. F-150 will also provide 3.3-liter V6 gasoline that generates 290 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of twisting power. A 5.0-liter EcoBoost V8 is optional and it can produce 395 horses and 400 lb-ft of torque.
Ford offers new 10-speed automatic transmission as well. Lastly, the high-performance F-150 Raptor will use a relatively new 7.0-liter DOHC V8 powertrain. We are still waiting for Blue Oval manufacturer to release the exact specs of hybrid and all-electric variants. However, the latest reports are suggesting a hybrid version with a 3.3-liter V6 and an electric motor that adds 44 horses. A total output of the F-150 Hybrid could be around 320 hp and 322 lb-ft of twists.
Price and Release Date
The price of the new 2021 Ford F-150 will now start at around $35,000. It is a small price increase over the 2020 model. However, we are more interested in the price of the hybrid and all-electric F-150. Ford will release its new pickup truck later this year. On the other hand, some variants will most likely go on sale at the beginning of 2021.
