We’re merely days away from the unveiling of the all-new 2021 Ford F-150, which is scheduled for Thursday, June 25th, 2020 at 8 pm EDT. After at least one COVID-19 related delay, it’s fair to say that this debut is hotly anticipated and somewhat overdue. Ford has been quick to capitalize on this, of course, first by feeding us a shadowy photo showing off the new F-150’s Daytime Running Lights (DRLs). Now, a new 2021 F-150 teaser pic depicts a completely uncovered pickup shown via an aerial shot.
The F-150 teaser was posted to Ford’s Facebook page as a way to hype up the new pickup’s unveiling. “Clear your schedules,” the post says. “You’re going to want to see the reveal of the all-new F-150 – the toughest, most productive F-150 ever, and targeted to be the most powerful light duty full-size pickup.”
That last tidbit is truly interesting, because it means that Ford is planning on adding some juice to its current engine lineup, which will carry over from the previous generation. The current 10-speed automatic will continue to handle shifting duties. Otherwise, we can derive a few clues from this 2021 F-150 teaser that we weren’t able to see in previous spy pictures.
That includes familiar-looking hood lines/creases, as well as Ford’s giant twin-panel moonroof. The inside of this blue pickup’s bed features a factory liner, too. Otherwise, it’s difficult to see the new front and rear-end design, as well as the rest of the 2021 F-150’s sheetmetal, which is brand-new, as previously reported by Ford Authority. And we’re guessing that was Ford’s intention here.
The 2021 Ford F-150 will represent the 14th generation of America’s best-selling pickup truck. It will feature a completely revamped interior with an available digital gauge cluster, an all-new center stack and center console, plus the latest technologies, including the ability to receive over the air updates. The all-new pickup will also come with a new stow-away console shifter and a passenger seat that can fold flat into a bed.
A new hybrid-electric model will join the lineup at or close to launch, while an F-150 Electric model will arrive by mid-2022. We expect the offroad-oriented F-150 Raptor to launch roughly one year after the primary models. Some models will offer an onboard generator, allowing owners to plug in household-type outlets, whether for work or for play.
