A viral post this morning from the F150Gen14.com has been making rounds, with the administrator posting that the 2021 Ford F-150 reveal will take place June 19. To verify this, we’ve reached out to Ford for comment, and confirmed that the date is incorrect. That said, official details are expected soon.
The timeline of the 14th-generation F-150 has not been without delays, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result, production has been pushed to October 2020, after originally targeting a summer timeline.
The new F-150 will be entrusted with being the lifeblood of Ford Motor Company. It currently holds two championship belts – one as the best selling pickup truck in America, and the other being the best selling vehicle in America, period. Moreover, the current F-150 carries an average transaction price of over $51,000 – roughly $16,000 more than the the industry average.
Golden goose? No. More like golden truck. Or something.
The 2021 Ford F-150 is expected to feature over-the-air updates for the first time ever, thanks to advancements in its electrical architecture and processing power. Some leaked features include a stowable shifter, a larger infotainment screen, while the engine lineup goes largely unchanged. Adding to the lineup will be a 3.5L V6 hybrid F-150, as well as a fully electric F-150 down the road.
The next 6-10 months are huge for Ford Motor Company when it comes to launching new product. Along with the new F-150, Ford will launch the Mustang Mach-E electric crossover utility vehicle, the all-new 2021 Bronco SUV, the first-ever Bronco Sport, as well as a few surprises from S550 Mustang.
