The 2024 Ford F-150 debuted just last month, ushering in yet another mid-cycle refresh for the perennially best-selling pickup. At the same time, the revised pickup’s build and price configurator has gone live, giving customers the chance to spec out their next new F-150, while order banks opened up on the same exact day as the reveal. Now, sources familiar with the matter have told Ford Authority that 2024 Ford F-150 production is slated to begin soon as well.
2024 Ford F-150 production is currently scheduled to begin on December 18th at the Dearborn Truck Plant, though as always, this date is subject to change. This also applies to the all-electric Ford F-150 Lightning at the nearby Rouge Electric Vehicle Center, but not the Kansas City Assembly plant, which also builds the F-150.
Along with updated exterior styling, the 2024 Ford F-150 gets a few revisions to its trim level lineup, a new badge, the 12-inch infotainment screen as standard equipment, the newly available Pro Access Tailgate as an option, and the previously-standard 3.3L V6 is gone, replaced by the turbocharged 2.7L V6 EcoBoost across the lineup. In an effort to boost sales, the 3.5L V6 PowerBoost hybrid is now a no-cost option over the standard, twin-turbocharged 3.5L V6 EcoBoost, too.
Meanwhile, the off-road-focused Tremor and F-150 Raptor return with their own unique set of updates, and the relatively new Heritage Edition will continue to be offered as well. BlueCruise will enjoy expanded availability in conjunction with the refreshed F-150, while the F-150 Lightning adds two new models to its lineup – the Flash and Platinum Black. As has typically been the case in recent years, these updates will come at a cost, however, as 2024 Ford F-150 pricing has increased across the board.
