The clock is ticking until the new F-150's big reveal.
The most important vehicle range in Ford's portfolio, the F-150, has been teased one final time ahead of its big reveal on June 25, the official Ford Trucks Facebook page posting an overhead photo of the all-new F-150 towing a boat. Ford's full-size, light-duty pickup truck is getting a complete head-to-toe redesign after just six years on the market, returning fire on GM's redesigned Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra, and FCA's latest Ram 1500, all brand new for the 2019 model year.
The Ford F-150's exterior styling isn't expected to change much as it enters the new, fourteenth generation, and without giving too much away, this aerial shot suggests that notion is more-or-less correct.
Instead, the 2021 Ford F-150's design will be a continuation of the ideas established with the truck's mid-cycle refresh in 2018, although the truck is getting a new, distinctive set of headlamps shown off in a recent teaser image. The grille shape will be an evolution of what's on the current truck, too, and the sculpture of the hood appears to be different.
But the real changes will come to the interior, where the F-150 will boast a range of big, high-resolution infotainment screens available in sizes of up to 15 inches diagonally, and an available digital instrument panel like the one that premiered in the sixth-generation Mustang.
That's not all, however, as the 2021 Ford F-150 is also tipped to receive a lay-flat front passengers seat, perfect for truck camping or napping on the worksite, along with a new software system capable of over-the-air updates, a more rich selection of interior materials, and even an onboard generator.
None of this has yet been confirmed by Ford, but with the clock ticking away until the new F-150's online debut on Thursday, June 25, we're very close to getting the official word regarding what's new on the fourteenth-generation light-duty pickup. Stay tuned.
