A camouflaged prototype of the upcoming 2021 F-150 was just spied out and about on public roads, giving us a fresh take on the next-gen Ford pickup’s exterior styling.
This latest prototype is covered in heavy black snap-on vinyl camouflage, as opposed to the black-and-white graphical camouflage seen on previous 2021 F-150 prototypes. It also looks positively enormous out on the road, especially the profile view. Just look at that length! In the corners, familiar six-spoke wheels get a bright, polished finish.
Critically, this particular 2021 F-150 prototype also reveals a few important styling points. For example, under the white mesh that covers the nose, we spot a brand-new grille with a three-bar design. Bookending the updated nose are two new headlamps, which also offer a new design with a simplified appearance and new LED lighting signature as compared to the current model.
Back in June, we reported on a separate 2021 F-150 prototype with exposed headlamps, showing off a look that’s more square and upright. This prototype is a continuation of that look.
As part of an all-new front fascia redesign effort, the 2021 F-150 will also gain a new front bumper, and although it’s covered on this particular prototype, we can see an exposed lower bumper air dam.
In the rear, things look even juicer, thanks to a new rear bumper design that’s completely uncovered. Deeper character lines enhance the bumper’s natural visual width, which, compared to previous spy shots, looks similar to the design seen on earlier prototype models.
As for what lies underneath the camo, the new fourteenth-generation pickup will offer new hybrid power and all-electric power as well, in addition to the standard lineup of gasoline and diesel burners.
There’s a whole lot more to this 2021 F-150 prototype than meets the eye, and we’ll post additional information gleaned from these spy shots in follow-up posts. Until then, subscribe to Ford Authority for more F-150 news and around-the-clock Ford news coverage.
