2021 Ford F-150: not all new.
It looks like the “new” Ford F-150 for 2021 is not all new.
But just an extensive refresh.
It is basically the same truck with an all new front end, slightly revised rear end. And probably a new interior.
I guess it doesn’t matter since, no matter what, they seem to sell about a million of these every year.
So why spend the money on something ‘all new”.
The real news will be the availability of an EV version. About a year later. Which will compete of course with the various electric versions of the GM trucks.
We’l have to wait at least 3 years it seems for a real “new F-150″…

They don't need to make it all new. There is an easy checklist of upgrades the F150 needs (like a competitive interior) that can easily be accomplished without starting completely over. Ford is usually on a 10 year lifecycle anyway, doing a major refresh at 5 years and full replacement at 10.
The body may look similar, but it’s clearly different…look at the wheel arches.
You could not be more wrong. The new F-150 is completely new in every way. Most importantly, the platform is all-new as to allow hybrid and electric versions of the truck to be offered. Please research before you comment.
Looks like the new hood slants downward a little. I don't see how short people see over of the high, flat hoods on big trucks/SUV.
Still looks like a crude farm tractor.
