The 2021 Ford F-150 isn’t a clean-sheet redo, as it retains some of the cues from the popular 13th-generation model. These carryover cues include an upright front end, scalloped lower door areas, and bold grille designs. Digging deeper into 2021 F-150’s design shows some of the updates, including all-new squared headlights in a stacked arrangement, upside-down L-shaped accent lighting, a new front bumper, new grille designs, and an updated tailgate.
The 2021 Ford F-150 will bring in massaged looks, loads of updated tech, enhanced capabilities, an electrified powertrain, and tons more. Although not announced during the premiere, Ford has confirmed there will be a Raptor variant for 2021.
The 2021 Ford F-150 full-size pickup upgrades the venerable light-duty truck well into the connected-car era. In some cases, beyond.
Far removed from granddad’s farm truck, the new F-150 brims with tech-heavy features such as over-the-air updates, an 8.0-inch or larger touchscreen on every truck, more computing power, and an integrated smartphone app that’ll display nearly all the truck’s cameras on a device planted firmly in your hand.
The 2021 F-150 also sets the table for the truckmaker’s electrified future. The new truck is available with a full hybrid powertrain—the first offered by Ford in a pickup—ahead of a fully electric version due soon.
True to its farm roots, the 2021 F-150 boasts work-friendly upgrades such as an in-vehicle generator with multiple power plugs in the bed, a workbench tailgate, fold-flat center console, and airplane-style fold-flat front seats in case the job lasts longer (but you can’t).
The 2021 Ford F-150 goes on sale in fall 2020. Ford’s not talking prices, but will offer it in XL, XLT, Lariat, Platinum, King Ranch, and Limited trims with myriad options available for all, including powertrains, bed lengths, cab configurations, and convenience features.
What’s New for 2021?
Though its styling may suggest otherwise, Ford’s best-selling vehicle will be new from grille to tailgate for 2021. Rumor has it that an electric F-150 is also on the way, but we expect that one won’t debut for another year or two. Meanwhile, we anticipate the 2021 F-150 to start trickling into Ford dealerships by the end of 2020.
Style and performance
All trucks share a functional layout with big controls and gauges, especially trucks equipped with a 12-inch digital instrument cluster. Broader themes from prior F-150s carry over into the new truck like you knew they would. Blocky controls. Big space. Lots of storage cubbies.
Outside, the 2021 F-150 is a dead-ringer for the truck it replaces. The looks subtly change from trim level to trim level, including up to 11 different grilles, but the basics are all there: hood, cab, box in the back with acres of vertical space.
The new F-150 is adorned with all the hallmarks from the last truck, which include a kinked window line, C-shaped headlights and taillights, large wheel arches, and squared-off shoulders. The new look is more hewn compared to the old truck but also clearly related. Evolution not revolution, and all that.
2021 F-150’s makeover is from the inside out, mostly. The interior sports new touchscreens in the center of the truck and hard knobs and buttons for vehicle functions and climate controls. The interior of the trucks still covers the considerable ground between work-spec XL with its vinyl seats and hard-wearing plastics to cowboy-Cadillac Limited with its leather upholstery and a pole position at the valet lot.
