See what all is new on Ford's completely redesigned light-duty pickup.
It's an exciting time for Ford truck fans. Late last month, the automaker pulled the wraps off of its all-new 2021 Ford F-150 pickup, and followed up earlier in July with the reveal of the new 2021 Ford Bronco - the first Bronco in more than 20 years, and a highly anticipated addition to the lineup.
Not to shift the focus away from Bronco so soon, but there's more fresh news on the F-150 front, as the entire order guide for the all-new 2021 model appears to have leaked on the F150Gen14 forums. The order guide has detailed info on the new light-duty truck's options, packages, accessories - just about everything you could want to know.
The document, shared by a forum administrator on July 15, is exhaustive, spanning a total of 40 dense, info-packed pages. Sadly, the very thing that we want to know most - each available powertrain's peak horsepower, torque, and estimated fuel economy - is absent, as are max payload and tow ratings for each powertrain and configuration.
But just about everything else is present and accounted for. Want to know about the Ford F-150's available Snow Plow and Gaseous Engine Prep packages? You got it. How about which seat upholstery colors are available on which trim levels? Read away. The order guide also provides details as to the standard specification of every single trim currently on offer, with the exception of the Ford F-150 Raptor, which is coming sooner than we thought but hasn't been unveiled yet.
If we had to guess, probably one of the more popular brand new packages for the 2021 Ford F-150 will be the Tow Technology Package - available on the F-150 XL , XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, and Platinum. The package includes Ford's lauded Pro Trailer Backup Assist, a 360-degree Camera, Trailer Reverse Guidance, an integrated Trailer Brake Controller, and a Smart Trailer Tow Connector. That last one enables Ford's blind spot monitoring system to accurately account for the length of the trailer being towed in issuing warnings, where available.
Thinking of picking up a brand new 2021 Ford F-150 of your own? You might want to go check out the order guide to get a sense of what all will be available when the truck launches later this year.
