As the 2021 model year approaches, Ford has made adjustments across their entire product line. Thanks to a recent official document published by the Dearborn automaker, we now have details about the changes coming to their lineup of trucks and SUVs. Here is everything you need to know about the updated 2021 Ford Super Duty lineup.
The current crop of Ford Super Duty trucks have been in production since 2016, but they underwent a mild refresh for the 2020 model year. That update included the addition of the 7.3L Godzilla V8 engine, as well as the 10-speed automatic to the powertrain lineup. We saw a styling refresh for 2020 as well, so the changes for the upcoming model year aren’t too drastic. Ford has added a bed-step as an option on all models from XL through Platinum, for those who need extra help stepping into the ever-taller bed. A similar feature can be found on the 2021 Chevrolet Silverado HD and GMC Sierra HD They’ve also added some slick trailer tow mirrors with heated glass and heated convex spotter mirrors as standard with the XL power equipment group on dually trucks.
Ford has also added three new exterior paint colors for Super Duty buyers to choose from: Antimatter Blue, Carbonized Gray, and Lithium Gray. There’s no word yet as to whether or not these new paint options will carry any additional cost.
While the updates for the Super Duty models may be slight, Ford has also added some new features to the F-650 and F-750 models for 2021. Buyers can now spec an integrated air compressor alongside the 7.3L engine, which can be used to power everything from air brakes and air suspension to an air-ride seat or horn. For customers that rely on CNG/LNG for fuel, Ford has also added a new gauge cluster that supports the 7.3L powertrain in said trim with the full Driver Assist Technology package.
With a refresh taking place for the current sales year, it’s not too surprising to see that Ford hasn’t changed much for the 2021 Super Duty lineup. With the next-gen Super Duty expected to arrive in the near future, their efforts are likely focused elsewhere.
