The 2021 Ford F-150 will debut a week from today and the company has released the first teaser image of the redesigned pickup truck.
While the picture isn’t very revealing, it provides another look at the model’s redesigned headlights which feature C-shaped LED daytime running lights that continue all the way down into the front bumper.
Of course, this shouldn’t be too surprising as truck’s redesigned front fascia has already been revealed in spy photos. They also showed the model will have a slimmer grille with some Mercedes-like chrome accents.
The truck will also have a bulging hood and evolutionary bodywork. There will also be new taillights and a revised tailgate.
The updated styling will continue the cabin as the F-150 will have digital instrument cluster and a larger infotainment system. While nothing is official, Ford has previously said their SYNC 4 infotainment system will be offered with 8-, 12- and 15.5-inch displays.
Besides the high-tech goodies, drivers will find higher quality materials and an improved design. There will also be an evolutionary steering wheel and new switchgear including climate controls with digital displays.
A new report from Reuters also mentions a “lay-flat passenger seat like those seen in first-class cabins on some planes.” The publication goes on to describe it as a “sleeper-seat” and one source told them “You can basically live in the truck.”
Engine options are largely expected to carryover and choices could include a 3.3-liter V6 with 290 hp (216 kW / 294 PS) as well as a 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 with 325 hp (242 kW / 330 PS). There could also be a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 with 375 hp (280 kW / 380 PS), a 5.0-liter V8 with 395 hp (295 kW / 400 PS) and a 3.0-liter V6 diesel with at least 250 hp (186 kW / 253 PS).
Of course, the big news is that the F-150 is going green. There will be a new hybrid variant as well as a fully electric model which will arrive within the next two years.
Regardless of what’s under the hood, Ford confirmed the 2021 F-150 will be launched this fall.
