With all of the fanfare surrounding the launch of the Ford Bronco and Bronco Sport, it is almost easy to forget that the 2021 Ford F-150 debuted just a few short weeks ago. While Ford was happy to spill some details surrounding all of the new tech and features crammed into the half-ton, there was little said in the way of available packages. Well, that’s changed thanks to the folks over at the F150Gen14 forum, who have just leaked the 2021 Ford F-150 order guide.
Posted by a forum administrator, the leaked 2021 F-150 order guide is a behemoth of a document. While we can’t entirely confirm the accuracy of the leak, the information is so extensive that it lends itself towards being an official document. Nothing found inside the order guide is too surprising, but it does give us our best look yet at how Ford plans to divvy out their equipment groups throughout the new lineup. Here is a breakdown of some of the packages that we believe will be popular:

There is still a lot of information the order guide doesn’t really tell us however. Figures related to towing capacity and fuel economy are still a mystery, as are the engine performance numbers across the lineup. If you’re looking at ordering yourself a one of these trucks, we suggest heading over to the forum and taking a look at the full 2021 Ford F-150 order guide.
