Ford has a new F-150 on deck for 2021, and the crew at TFLnow on YouTube caught a model doing some heavy mountain testing in Colorado. The spy video is short, but the video camera passes slowly by the trailer-towing test vehicle. It’s certainly the closest look we’ve had of the next-gen Ford, though undoubtedly the camouflage is still rather heavy.
2021 Ford F-150 Spy Shots
Still, we can state without a doubt this is the next F-150. For starters, the camo pattern and heavy coverings upfront match what we saw in our first sighting back in May 2019. This time the camera is much more detailed, and as it passes the motorist front door, you’ll see Ford’s hallmark keyless entry pad on the B-pillar. This close-up view also lets us take a look at the front of the door. In 2004, the F-150 acquired a kink in its beltline on front doors. However, it’s not visible here. We do think it’s still there– look simply above the door manage on the front door, and you’ll see a strong line extending forward. That’s likely a false panel connected to the door concealing information below.
2021 Ford F-150 Interior
The close look practically gives us a glimpse inside the forthcoming truck, but absolutely nothing can be obtained from this perspective. We haven’t heard anything about interior changes from our sources hence far, but you can be assured Ford will up its game in the quality and products department. That’s particularly true on higher-level trim choices, where the new Ram 1500 dominates. Expanded motorist security systems ought to also be available, with more of those features ending up being basic equipment.
2021 Ford F-150 Engine
A recent report recommends powertrain alternatives could include a new 4.8-liter V8 that would change the 5.0-liter mill. The smaller sized engine supposedly is more effective– 420 horsepower (313 kilowatts) versus 395 hp (295 kW)– and it would likely be a bit more penny-wise at the pump. We also understand a hybrid and fully electrical truck is on the way, though it’s not clear exactly when they will show up. When it comes to the next-gen F-150, we’ve heard it will introduce midway through 2020 as a 2021 model.
