2021 Ford F-150 Inventory Is Flying Off Dealer Lots

Sponsored Links

Though 2021 Ford F-150 production is currently being threatened by a global chip shortage, the trucks that have reached dealers are apparently selling quite well. 2021 Ford F-150 inventory is turning at a very fast rate, spending an average of 9 days on dealer lots, a fact that was revealed by FoMoCo executives during a recent media briefing attended by Ford Authority.

This speaks to the tremendous amount of interest consumers have shown in the new Ford F-150 after Ford reported it had received a record number of retail orders for the pickup as of early December, as customer sold orders rose 210 percent year-over-year and dealer orders for stock were more than double the current production schedule.

Ford was prepared for this high level of demand, as it began producing the 2021 F-150 at both the Ford Dearborn Truck Plant and Kansas City Assembly Plant while prototypes were still in production. Those models were later held at the Detroit Metro Airport and various places around the Kansas City plant until they were updated with the latest software and given final quality checks before being shipped to dealers.

Meanwhile, those getting their hands on that in-demand 2021 Ford F-150 inventory are also purchasing a truck that’s quickly racking up awards. The 2021 F-150 has already earned a Kelley Blue Book Best Buy award for the seventh consecutive year, as well as 2021 North American Truck of the Year, Edmunds Top Rated Truck of 2021, the Green Car Journal 2021 Green Truck of the Year, and the Detroit Free Press Truck of the Year.

Now, with the recently revealed 2021 F-150 Raptor launching this summer, the new F-150 figures to continue that momentum through the year.

  1. I’m glad ford didn’t make a big changes to the appearance F150. Hoping to sell my 2004 150 to get new with either the 5.0 or EB2.7

  2. I’m lucky to have picked up a 2021 Lariat with the Powerboost engine. The truck is awesome and I’m so happy with it. I did want a couple more options, like FX4, bed liner, wireless charging and the 7.2kW option but there simply were none to be had with the dark package I wanted, not in the Northeast at least.
    Only 1 bug so far and it’s already being worked on with Android Auto. To set it up one must plug in the phone the first time but as soon as I do the phone reboots over and over. To be fair, this also happens on my son’s Tacoma.
    The lights, interior and exterior, are beautiful, the infotainment system is phenomenal. The truck feels solid.
    Also tried the Driver Assist on a 2 hour round trip on highway and country roads and the truck basically drives itself very well.

    • That’s true. But to test a super duty 250 & dual rear tire truck doesn’t seem much of an apples to apples comparison. Maybe they already knew who they wanted to win. Is it that the super duty or dually was close to Ram Trx? A closer test mightve been using a Ford Raptor. Something designed more for what the Trx is designed for, off road, and at speed. Maybe if they tested the Trx on a farm, like the super duty & dually are at home doing. So to test different types really doesn’t scream truck of the year. Maybe it ended that way because the author picked trucks he knew wasn’t even in the same category as the Trx.
      Next year use the raptor & put a Silverado 2500 against it, in a speed test off road. They could spin the Raptor lose if the test is done on a farm, doing farm duties, nice & slow like. Apples to Apples test.

  3. Ford – There is a strom arising with 2021 F150 customers – not all but many. Storm is “RUST” – uncarriage rust @ the axle and pumpkin areas. This shouldn’t happen reguardless of model. Some of these vehicle were ealry production ones that were sitting in the Detorit Metro area for months.

    Ford – recommend you take a hard look for undercarriage rust – esp @ the axles.
