Today, The Blue Oval announced that 2021 Ford F-150 production has begun at the Dearborn Truck Plant, as we reported back in April. The all-new, 14th generation pickup is scheduled to arrive at dealerships this November, and will do so packing a host of updates and new features aimed at keeping the F-Series atop the sales charts.

“The critical launch of the all-new F-150 is now underway – on time and with the Built Ford Tough quality our customers demand to get the job done,” said Jim Farley, Ford’s chief operating officer and incoming CEO. “F-Series pickups are the backbone of work and productivity across the country.”

When it arrives this fall, customers will be treated to an entirely new version of Ford’s venerable pickup, as every panel of the 2021 Ford F-150 has been redesigned, including a new headlamp design, a new power dome hood, wrap-around bumpers, and higher front fenders with a tucked-in midsection and larger-diameter tires pulled out three-quarters of an inch to give the truck a more powerful stance.

The interior of the new Ford F-150 has undergone a complete overhaul as well, complete with enhanced materials, new color choices, and additional storage. That includes the addition of an all-new 12 inch center screen, which is standard equipment on the XLT and above. Users are able to split the screen and control multiple functions simultaneously, including navigation, music, and truck features.

As was the case with the previous generation, the new F-150 will continue to be offered in XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum, and Limited trim levels. Meanwhile, 2021 Ford F-150 production is expected to begin at the Ford Kansas City Assembly Plant in Claycomo, Missouri in October.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.

  1. A shame it will be so long after production starts that we will see them at dealerships. That means when the Bronco Sport begins production at the end of October, we probably wont see them until well after winter starts.
