When you consider just how many pickups are sold in the United States every year, it is no surprise that so many owners customize their trucks. With deliveries of the 2021 Ford F-150 expected to take place at any time now, buyers are surely starting to make plans for their new rides. In order to make sure aftermarket suppliers can start cranking out popular parts for the new F-150, SEMA Tech Transfer has just released some new CAD data from Ford.
According to the folks at SEMA, this new 2021 Ford F-150 CAD data is just the first batch of several that will be hosted on their Tech Transfer website. This initial batch contains files related to several key components of the all-new model, such as the 4×4 suspension, exhaust, frame, steering, rear axle, dash, center stack, wheel well liners and cargo bed. In other words, Ford has released files for the areas of the truck that buyers are most likely to invest in upgrading.
It is worth noting that this CAD data is not available to just anyone. You must be a SEMA Tech Transfer member to access the files, which happens to require OEM approval. That said, the release of this CAD data is exciting for truck fans nonetheless. With this new information, it shouldn’t be long before we start to see updated parts coming from Ford’s aftermarket partners. Suspension lift kits and exhaust kits will be among the first to arrive, alongside more practical items like 5th-wheel setups and bed storage solutions.
As it turns out, buyers won’t have to wait at all for some parts. BDS Suspension have officially become the first company to release a line of suspension kits for the 2021 Ford F-150, with kits measuring in at four and six inches. The announcement came yesterday following the reveal of the company’s collaborative SEMA project with the Dearborn Automaker. We’re willing to bet that they had access to these files a little early.
