The image shared by Ford manages to keep the rest of the design in the dark. Notably, the shape of the 2021 Ford F-150 truck looks bigger than the current version.

Apart from the bulging hood with an attractive bodywork, the truck will get new taillights and a revised tailgate.
On the inside, the cabin of the F-150 truck will feature a digital instrument cluster and a larger infotainment system. However, there is no official confirmation from the carmaker yet. The company previously mentioned that it is likely to offer SYNC 4 infotainment system on the F-150. Moreover, we could also see a new steering wheel, new switchgear with climate controls and digital displays.
Mechanically, the 2021 Ford F-150 is likely to be offered with several powertrain options. There could be a 3.3-litre V6 producing 290 bhp and a 2.7-litre EcoBoost V6 unit making 325 bhp.
