Meanwhile, FoMoCo announced the all-new 2021 Ford F-150 via a virtual presentation. The launch of a new model typically sees reduces sales volumes for about a year as a result of a production ramp and resulting inventory issues.

The 2021 F-150 should go through the same cycle. Meanwhile, Ford Ranger sales are growing in a very strong fashion, but they’re not enough to offset the slump in F-150 deliveries.
