Ford’s current, 13th-generation F-150 pickup truck is a solid and competitive product, but it is getting a bit long in the tooth in some areas. Luckily, Ford has an all-new 14th-gen model on the way in the form of the 2021 F-150, and now we know exactly when the all-new pickup truck will make its debut.
Ford Authority has learned that the magic date for the debut of the all-new 2021 Ford F-150 is Wednesday, April 29th, 2020. The reveal will take place at a special event at Ford’s world headquarters in Dearborn, Michigan.
The 14th-generation of America’s most popular pickup truck will be completely overhauled, receiving a thorough redesign and re-engineering. The last time that took place was for the 2015 model year, which saw the launch of the aluminum-alloy body F-150, delivering considerable weight savings, along with a host of new features, creature comforts, and increases in capability.
The all-new, 2021 F-150 is expected to build on that success with a redesigned exterior and interior, along with improvements in towing and hauling capabilities, as well as updates in convenience and safety. The body should continue to rely on an aluminum-heavy construction, while featuring a more modern design, while the interior will feature a large center screen and an all-digital instrument panel (on some models).
The April 29th debut date means that the 2021 F-150 will debut after the 2021 Ford Bronco, which will be revealed in late March. Both body-on-frame models equip The Blue Oval with two highly-anticipated product launches in a single year. The Mustang Mach-E also represents a highly-anticipated launch as Ford’s first fully-dedicated electric vehicle.
Meanwhile, the final year of the current F-150 is getting a few slight updates and changes for the 2020 model year. Check out the 2020 F-150 updates and changes.
