Ford To Debut All-New 2021 F-150 On April 29, 2020

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 a private media debut of the all-new 2021 Ford F-150 is Wednesday, April 29th, 2020. The reveal will take place at an event at Ford’s world headquarters in Dearborn, Michigan. As of this writing, it’s unclear when Ford will share details of the truck with the public, though we expect it to be in the vicinity of the April 29th date.

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.

    So the Bronco debuts this month while the F-150 and Bronco Sport debut next month. What is Ford gonna show at Detroit show in June?

    1. trailhiker

      Maybe some plug-in hybrid versions of existing models..Maybe a more trail focused(sub Raptor) version of Ranger. Maybe a concept version of the compact trucklet.

  2. John Q Public

    What auto show in June? Rumor says it will be cancelled.

  3. Adithya Ramachandran

    This is possibly the most important vehicle for Ford for the next several years. I hope the interior gets a major overhaul.

    My hope is that the interior receives more soft touch material and higher grade materials, including higher grade leather, in the higher trim levels – similar to what RAM just did.

    I like the LED lighting and tail lamps on the top model 2020 F150 better but I will reserve my final thoughts when I see it in person inside and out. Don’t be Trumped the coronavirus is real people are dying, if they cancel any auto show, game or event it’s totally for the safety of all of Us Trust Me.

      Why would we trust anyone with TDS. You must get your facts from CNN.
