2021 Ford F-150 Looks Like A Huge Winner

Recommended Posts

I found the exterior design extremely compelling, essentially flawless. Ford avoided any mistakes, and the “nose” of the car looks elegant and fresh.

 

The main objective of the interior was to catch up to the RAM 1500 and add various nifty features. It looks like Ford succeeded.

 

Exterior design: Flawless

This is often the first and most important step to a redesign of an existing product such as the Ford F-150. In this case, really the only thing people will notice is the face of the car - straight from the front and in profile -- and that "little thing" is of crucial importance. In my opinion, Ford hit a home run with the new face of the F-150: It looks flawless. If the 2021 F-150 story stopped right there, it may be enough to declare the whole operation a victory.

Interior design: Catching up to RAM 1500

This is the area where Ford had its greatest challenge with the 2021 F-150, and we all know why: RAM 1500. The RAM came out in March 2018 and is universally considered the leader in interior design, by a wide margin.

 

Everyone expected Ford to close the gap with the 2021 F-150, for all the obvious and necessary reasons. So, the bar was high.

How did it do? The answer is slightly inconclusive for the simple reason that I have not yet had the opportunity to examine the F-150 interior in person. We have to rely on photos here, as well as this seemingly exclusive in-person video, from Kelley Blue Book (was supposed to be Roman 😉): 2021 Ford F-150 | First Look

I agree with this guy's take on the exterior. It looks pretty much flawless now.

That front end is light years ahead of the current truck.  The entire headlight / grille treatment on the current truck is garish by comparison.

Are they getting rid of the 3.5 HP in the limited?

Looking forward to seeing this new truck in person.

I think the new grill is taking the F150 back to the old ‘90’s look. I always thought that was the worst looking truck Ford ever made.

I'll be curious to see how the hybrid stacks up against the other options

I really like it, however to get what I want is too expensive. I'll stick with a Ranger. 

 

F-150 in higher trims are luxury vehicles, designed for wealthy "lifestyle" customers.

It was an XLT I spec'd out....

 

The only thing I would compromise on is the hybrid powertrain and it would still be over $50k

Don’t let that fool you.  My almost loaded XLT 302A stickered for $48K.  My price was $37k.

No way am I going to be able to get that kind of rebate in March/April when it comes time to replace the Fusion. Not on a 2021. 
 

As it is if you ask my wife I need to go to a junkyard and buy a beater. 🙄

I think those rebates are pretty consistent even with brand new models.  Just saying don’t go by MSRP - check street prices.
