What is the F-150?
The Ford F-150 is perhaps the most important vehicle in the U.S. It is far and away the most popular pickup truck on the market, and sales of the F-Series — the collective name for the F-150 and its heavy-duty siblings — have eclipsed those of any other vehicle for decades. That means every new F-150 generation is a monumental occasion, and 2021 is no different. The 2021 Ford F-150 is fully redesigned and it'll feature new powertrains in addition to other enhancements.
Spy shots reveal a camouflaged F-150 that, so far, looks similar to the outgoing model. The interior takes inspiration from the recently redesigned Ford Explorer, including that SUV's affinity for large infotainment screens. The air-conditioning controls take up less real estate than before, which frees up room for a gigantic square touchscreen. As with the current Mustang, a digital instrument panel will be offered as an option to give the F-150's cabin a high-tech feel.
Also on the order guide will be a hybrid powertrain, which would be a real killer app in this traditionally thirsty segment. We know that an all-electric F-150 is coming at some point as well, but it likely won't be available the first year of production of this new generation.
It's too early to draw conclusions, but the new F-150 has the potential to move the full-size pickup forward in a significant way. We can't wait to lay eyes on the final production model.
