Ford Argentina’s sales declined sharply in May, largely due to a COVID-19 induced shutdown, plunging 41 percent year-over-year. One bright spot in that dreary result, however, is the Ford F-150, which enjoyed a 105 percent sales increase last month. Now, Argentinians can purchase the latest and greatest 2021 Ford F-150, as the all-new 14th generation model has officially launched exclusively in Lariat Luxury 5.0L 4×4 AT trim.
As the name implies, Argentina’s 2021 Ford F-150 Lariat Luxury 5.0L 4×4 AT trim comes equipped exclusively with Ford’s 5.0L Coyote V8, paired with the automaker’s 10-speed automatic transmission, and in four-wheel-drive configuration. It also comes equipped with Ford’s FX4 Off-Road Package, which adds beefier shocks, a locking rear differential, skid plates, and Hill Decent Control.
The Lariat trim F-150 features a host of chrome trim on the exterior, including the bumpers, front grille, side mirrors, running boards, door handles, and 20-inch wheels, along with two-tone paint. On the inside, buyers will find Ford’s new 12-inch infotainment screen running SYNC 4 with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility, along with a digital instrument cluster.
Other niceties include an 8-speaker B&O sound system, 10-way adjustable heated and ventilated front power seats, the new Interior Work Surface, heated rear seats, a heated and leather-wrapped steering wheel, dual-zone climate control, power-adjustable pedals, and ambient lighting. The 2021 F-150 Lariat Luxury also comes equipped with Ford Co-Pilot360 and its suite of driver-assist technologies including Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Centering, Pre-Collision Assist, Pro Trailer Backup Assist, and Blind Spot Information System, to name a few.
The 2021 Ford F-150 Lariat Luxury 5.0L 4×4 AT is available in three exterior colors – Lead Gray, Racing Red, and Metallic White, and features a base MSRP of $69,990 USD. It joins the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1 in Argentina’s revamped lineup, which just launched in the country late last month.
