Ford announced at the end of last month that the debut of the 14th-generation F-150 would take place on June 25th at 8:00 PM EDT via a live stream event. With that date just one week away at this point, Ford have just put up a brand new teaser image of the 2021 Ford F-150 on their website.
Following suit with the likes of GMC and the Hummer EV teaser, Ford has chosen to give us a rather ominous silhouette of the 2021 Ford F-150’s new front end. The large Super Duty-esque LED headlights might be the most striking styling detail we can see so far, but the new truck clearly features a brawnier design. The fenders and hood appear flatter, with less of a rounded-off edge than we currently see on the F-150. It may not be a great view of the F-150’s styling, but so far we can’t complain with what we see.
Beyond the new image, Ford has yet to spill any more information about the upcoming pickup. What we do know thus far is the fact that the truck will retain basically the same powertrain lineup as the outgoing model, with the addition of a hybrid and full EV expected to come by mid-2022. Other new features for the 2021 model year include an onboard generator system for tools and equipment, a Ram-rivaling large touchscreen infotainment system, as well as over the air update capabilities.
The ordering books for the 2021 Ford F-150 are (allegedly) slated to open on July 15, one month after we will be introduced to the pickup. Should the country not run into any more setbacks related to the coronavirus pandemic, Ford should begin production of the trucks at the Dearborn Truck Plant on October 12, and at the Kansas City Assembly Plant on November 9. This means that buyers can expect their new 2021 F-150’s to arrive sometime around late-fall.
