Ford aims to keep its full-size pickup in the front of the pack with a redesigned model for 2021. Ford widened the F-150's stance by pulling the wheels out three-quarters of an inch, raising the front fender and increasing the tire diameter. The truck is 3 percent more aerodynamic than the outgoing model and will be available with 11 grille options and 13 wheel options, ranging from 17 to 22 inches. The 14th-generation pickup, Ford says, is expected to offer best-in-class towing, payload, torque and horsepower when it goes on sale in November. And then there's all the gadgets: hidden bottle openers, lie-flat seats and power generators among them. Here's a roundup of early F-150 reaction from the automotive media.
"At first glance, the new F-150 looks like a face-lifted version of the current-gen truck. The track is slightly wider and higher front fenders give it a more muscular stance. The headlights are similar to the ones found on the 2020 model, but they are larger, more squared-off, and have either halogen or LED bulbs."
