2021 Ford F-150
The 2021 F-150 looks pretty much the same, but comes with improved towing capacity, more tech features, and a new hybrid engine, amongst other things
The Ford F-150 needs no introduction whatsoever. It has dominated the pickup truck market for over four decades. It is still the best-selling truck, but the margin with which it led the segment was narrowing down, courtesy of some wonderful efforts from Ram and Chevy. Back in June 2020, the automaker unveiled the truck’s fourteenth-generation and it came with quite a few changes inside out, with the biggest one being the introduction of a hybrid mill for the first time in the F-150’s history. Can it sprint and gain that untouchable lead once again?
Latest Ford F-150 news and reviews:
This Truck Is a 2014 Ford Raptor With a 1979 Face And It’s Retrolicious
Restomods have a special place in our hearts. But, there are two sets of people here – one who want it to be as old-school and stock as the original, and the other who prefer the retro aesthetics and modern features. For the latter, we’ve got an amazing build right here by Sweet Brothers Restomods. On the outside, you see a truck from the 70s, but everything else about it is from the 21st century. A perfect blend of both worlds, innit?
Can a Shelby F-150 Super Snake Sport Beat The Lamborghini Urus In a Drag Race?
The 2021 Ram 1500 TRX has started appearing in YouTube videos lately and it looks as fierce in the real world as it did in the images and videos released by the automaker. It lived up to its ‘Raptor-killer’ name when it defeated the Ford F-150 Raptor in a drag race. However, another iteration of the F-150 by Shelby, monikered as the Super Snake Sport, recently beat the TRX in a straight-line race quite comfortably, thus leading a lot of us to believe that this is the next big thing.
With 770 horses under the hood and some serious performance figures matching it, the folks at Throttle House brought it to the drag strip once again; this time to take on a raging bull embodied in an SUV – the Lamborghini Urus. Can the F-150 Super Snake Sport prevail this time, too?
Check Out the Ford F-150 Electric As It Plays In The Snow
Now that the 2021 Ford F-150 is out of the box, the company can focus (pun unintended) on developing the electric version of the truck. It’s been in the works for quite some time now, but the first time we saw it in action – and that also officially confirmed its presence – was when Tesla challenged it to a towing capacity test and the electric F-150 allegedly towed over a million pounds. Apart from that, the company teased the truck a few months back along with the announcement of the new Rogue facility.
But, it seems like the company has already starting hyping it up. Ford released a teaser video that showcases the electric F-150 playing on ice like it’s no one else’s business.
Watch The 2021 Ram 1500 TRX Take On The Shelby F-150 Super Snake Sport
The 2021 Ram 1500 TRX arrived as the “quickest, fastest, and the most powerful mass-produced truck in the world” earlier this year. It took a few months to settle in and it wouldn’t be wrong to say that the TRX has been a bully so far. It has decimated the trucks it has faced, especially its primary rival, the Ford F-150 Raptor. However, it looks like it has finally met a bigger badass; on paper, at least.
The folks at Throttle House brought the Ram TRX face-to-face with the Shelby F-150 Super Snake Sport – a 770-Horsepower beast that might be the one to take down the former. Can it beat the Ram in straight-line races?
Everything You Need to Know About the 2023 Ford F-150 Electric
It’s been a while since FoMoCo’s train-pulling PR stunt came to further hype the arrival of the all-electric Ford F-150. As Ford has been rather tight-lipped lately about its full-electric pickup truck, we thought we’d have a look at what we know up until this point and what we should expect expect from the electric F-150. Here’s what we can report for the time being.
2021 Ford F-150 vs 2020 Ford F-150
Ford was preparing for the 2021 F-150’s launch for quite some time. The hype surrounding the world’s best-selling truck was immense, but the pandemic threw a spanner in the works and Ford had to settle for a rather subdued launch.
Still, people had their eyes glued to the screens to watch the live steam of the truck’s debut and to see what’s new this time around. The 14th generation needed to be a step up in all the aspects given how Ram and Chevy have upped the ante in the last few years. There are improvements in most of the departments, however, there are also a few things that we would’ve liked better. So, here’s a guide that compares the 2021 F-150 to its predecessor in terms of exterior, interior, tech features, engine options, towing capabilities, and price.
2021 Ford F-150 by PaxPower
Ford revealed the 2021 F-150 a few months back and it seems like a complete package. The exterior feels fresh and the interior comes with new features like Max Recline Seats and Interior Work Surface. When it comes to the drivetrains, Ford even introduced a new hybrid mill for the 2021 model along with a power boost on some of the existing engines.
One thing missing, however, was the Raptor version of the truck. Ford is still working on it and hasn’t introduced the 2021 F-150 Raptor, but just like the Bronco and the story of the missing V-8 engine, PaxPower has swooped in to capitalize on the opportunity.
PaxPower has introduced a few packages for the 2021 model year F-150 that come with bigger tires, heavy-duty steel bumpers, and a massive power boost that makes it more powerful than the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX.
A Ford F-150 Raptor Isn’t Really A Raptor Until It Has Tank Tracks
The immense mod potential in a vehicle is not limited to just hatches and sedans; even pickup trucks can be modified and customized to a crazy extent. Take Westen Champlin for instance. Instead of upgrading the tires to a bigger or a different set, he got some new shoes altogether. Champlin has fitted tank tracks on his Ford F-150 Raptor and it has become a beast that can conquer just about any terrain. Were we doing Raptor the wrong way until now?
This Dyno Video Proves That Ford’s New 7.3-Liter V-8 Deserves the "Godzilla" Name
Ford’s Godzilla engine needs no introduction. The automaker introduced this in the Super Duty truck series not too long ago. This V-8 pushrod displaces 7.3 liters and makes 430 horses and 475 pound-feet of torque. But, it looks like the engine is a lot more capable than its rather subtle state of tune in the production engine form.
Ever since the company started offering it as a crate engine, builders have been trying to extract every ounce of power from it. Merkel Racing Engines decided to do the same, and with minimal mods, they were able to achieve four-digit power figures. Is this engine a beast or what?
2021 Ford F-150 vs 2021 Ram 1500: Towing and Payload Capacities
People buy pickup trucks to haul and tow a lot more compared to any other type of vehicle. Even though trucks have gotten better in terms of aesthetics, ride quality, premium features, and so on, the biggest selling points are hauling and towing prowess.
No matter what, this is one thing that automakers can’t compromise on. With the number of trims, engine options, and body styles offered on trucks these days, it can get confusing to get a hang of which truck offers what kind of ratings. So, here’s a comprehensive look at the best trucks you can buy in the U.S. today – the 2021 Ford F-150 and the 2021 Ram 1500.
You Must Drive the Hennessey Velociraptor 6x6 in Forza Horizon 4
The Hennessey Velociraptor 6X6 is one of those vehicles that you’re both excited and scared to drive. I can imagine the thrill of sitting in the driver’s seat of this monstrous monolith on wheels and the fear that envelops you once you actually take it out for a drive. If you can handle it, you might enjoy it. If not, you might end up like that idiot thief who stole a Velociraptor 6X6 that was owned by a famous DJ and infamously got caught in the parking lot of a Burger King because he couldn’t do a proper turn in the six-wheeler.
Fortunately, there is an alternative to making sure that you remove fear out of the equation. Head over to Forza Horizon 4 and you can drive a Velociraptor 6X6 from the comfort of your own couch and not worry about messing it up. Even better, you can connect a Logitech G29 Steering Wheel and come about as close to driving the real deal and being at ease knowing that you can go all-out driving it and not spend a dime on repairs. If you still need more convincing that the Velociraptor 6X6 is an awesome ride, well, this 10-minute video should do the trick.
2021 Ford F-150 vs 2021 Ram 1500: Powertrain
One of the most important aspects of a truck is its towing and payload prowess. We see automakers improve their ratings quite often, and that has to do with the structural changes made to the truck. However, this is rendered useless if you don’t offer a powerful mill under the hood to pull all the weight.
Truckmakers are known to offer multiple engine options, but you can’t have them in any body style or trim level. All of this can get quite confusing, so we decided to compare them all. We’ve already covered the 2021 Ford F-150 vs 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, so this time, it’s the 2021 Ram 1500’s turn to be compared to the king of the jungle.
2021 Ford F-150 Tremor
2021 Ford F-150 Venom 800 By Hennessey
Aftermarket companies are snapping at new vehicles like hungry vultures; a case in point being the Ford Bronco. Companies like PaxPower, Saleen, and Hennessey, to name a few, have already made big announcements about it without even getting the car in flesh yet. Now, Hennessey has scalped another popular product from the house of the Blue Oval – the 2021 Ford F-150. Following up on the Venom 775 treatment given to its predecessor, the 2021 iteration is being built with extra horses, better performance figures, and beefier looks. Hennessey also announced that it will be making just 100 examples of the Venom 800.
2021 Ford F-150 vs 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500: Towing and Payload Capacities
For any prospective truck owners, towing and payload capacities play a major role when they’re choosing their future acquisition. Automakers realize this, too, and try to up the ante with every new model they release. The segment’s top two contenders – Ford and Chevrolet – also did the same with their 2021 model year trucks, the F-150 and the Silverado 1500. Given the number of permutations and combinations these companies have to offer in terms of trims, body styles, engine options, and drive layouts, it could get very confusing to filter out the data. So here’s a comprehensive towing and payload guide for these two trucks that break down the essentials for you.
This Throw Down Between the Ford F-150 Raptor and Ram TRX Is What 2020 Has Been Missing
Until the 2021 Ram 1500 TRX came out, Ford F-150 Raptor was the only full-size off-road truck that seemed to have made an impact in the market. The TRX was coined as the Raptor killer early on, but Ram took everything up a notch, leaving the F-150 Raptor unscathed to a large extent. However, we’ve been waiting to see these two go up against each other for the longest time, and thanks to TFL, it has become a reality.
The folks at the publication pit the Raptor and the TRX in a drag race wherein the latter won comfortably, but now they face each other on even grounds; or in this case, uneven grounds. Do you think the Ram 1500 TRX can down the Ford F-150 Raptor on beaten paths?
2021 Ford F-150 vs 2021 Chevrolet Silverado 1500: Powertrain
Pickup trucks play a very important part of the American automotive culture. Companies like Ford, Chevrolet, and Ram have capitalized on it and offer their products in various combinations. Ford and Chevrolet offer six engine options each and their spread clashes with each other, but while maintaining exclusivity over the other. For instance, the Ford F-150 is offered with a hybrid engine, but the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 isn’t. The Silverado is offered with three transmissions, but the F-150 only with one. All-in-all, it boils down to your requirement at the end of the day and what fits your bill the best.
We’ve compiled a list of all the engine options offered on the 2021 models of the F-150 and the Silverado, and what trim levels they are offered on.
Watch The Ram TRX and The Ford F-150 Raptor Come Face-to-Face In This Four-Way Drag Race
It is always fun to see big, bulky trucks ripping the roads in a straight line. There are numerous videos online where you can find any combination of two trucks going up against each other. But, the one that you wouldn’t have seen so far and is arguably the most-anticipated war is the Ram 1500 TRX versus the Ford F-150 Raptor. However, this, too, is ticked off the list, thanks to the folks at TFLTrucks. The guys brought together the two behemoths on a drag strip along with the Chevy Silverado 1500 and the Ram Rebel. Who are you rooting for?
2021 Ford F-150 Limited Hybrid SuperCrew by BDS Suspension
The 2021 SEMA Auto Show is going the virtual route because of the coronavirus pandemic. That’s a bummer for those who were looking forward to their annual pilgrimage to Sin City, but automakers have long adapted to the situation. Instead of attending auto shows like SEMA to unveil their newest creations, automakers have now gone digital, showcasing their latest offerings online.
Ford is one of those companies, and tonight, the Blue Oval is hosting “Ford Auto Nights,” a special webcast where the automaker plans to unveil its 2021 SEMA Auto Show lineup. That lineup includes the F-150 Limited Hybrid SuperCrew by BDS Suspension, a project truck that Ford created in partnership with BDS Suspension to showcase the automaker’s all-new Pro Power Onboard mobile power generator.
The 2021 Ford F-150’s Max Recline Seats Mean You Can Sleep Comfortably Anywhere
The 2021 Ford F-150 came with a whole lot of new things, like a hybrid mill, 12-inch touchscreen system, and a Pro Power Onboard Generator, amongst other things. One other impressive feature are the Max Recline Seats.
These are seats that essentially flip down almost 180 degrees so you can take a nap on work sites. Instead of just having the existing seats to fold flat, Ford worked from scratch to make sure you don’t end up with sprains and aches if you decide to have a siesta.
This Police Chase With a 6x6 Hennessey Velociraptor Truck is the Most L.A. Thing Ever
A Hennessey Velociraptor 6x6 belonging to DJ Marshmello has found itself in the headlines for all the wrong reasons. The massive custom Ford Raptor with three axles and six wheels featured in one of the most surreal car chases in Los Angeles in recent memory after a lunatic stole it in a local dealership where it was being serviced. The lengthy police pursuit ultimately ended when the driver of the VelociRaptor crashed into a light pole outside of a Taco Bell. The driver’s identity has yet to be released, but he did find himself with plenty of charges on his hands.
Ford Draws The Evolutionary Line At the Electric F-150
Ford hasn’t revealed a lot of details about the electric F-150 yet. Other than its train-pulling stunt and the teaser image revealed recently, there isn’t much known about it. Now, however, we have a big update. As it turns out, Ford doesn’t have any plans to build an electric Super Duty truck. Ford is the best truck seller for decades now, so this might come as a shock to a lot of customers who were probably looking to upgrade to an electric Super Duty in the future. But, it wouldn’t be wrong to say that we saw it coming.
This Tesla Cybertruck Is Really A Ford F-150 Raptor Underneath
The Tesla Cybertruck created quite a stir when it was unveiled back in 2019. That’s mostly because it boasts an unusual design with extremely sharp lines, but it’s also because Tesla promises performance and towing specs that will put the Cybertruck well above the Ford F-150, Chevrolet Silverado, and the Ram 1500.
Naturally, electric vehicle and truck enthusiasts have lined up up to buy one, but the wait is going to be very long since the Cybertruck isn’t scheduled to roll off the assembly line until late 2021. But a fan from Bosnia took matters into his own hands and transformed a Ford F-150 Raptor into a Cybertruck.
Ford Announces The Power Output Figures For Every Engine Option On The 2021 F-150
When Ford introduced the fourteenth-gen F-150, not a lot was known about the engine range. The automaker announced the engines that will be part of the lineup, but the power outputs weren’t revealed.
Now, however, the details about the 2021 F-150’s power figures are officially out, along with the towing and payload capacities. While most of the mills don’t see a drastic increase, the hybrid looks to be worth the hype. The mill makes 570 pound-feet of torque, the most ever produced by an F-150. Will the hybrid turn out to be the best-selling model in the lineup?
The Ford F-150 Hybrid Makes the Ram 1500 Hemi Hybrid Look Bad in Towing Racing
Ford made us wait for the hybrid truck for a long time. It was in news earlier this year for offering a pathetic range, but Ford somehow managed to kill the news. When the company unveiled the 2021 F-150, the hybrid was showcased, and it showed a lot of potential. Although the truck is still some time away, we have finally gotten to see how it performs in the real world.
A video was uploaded on YouTube by “F150gen14” that shows the 2021 F-150 Hybrid take on the Ram 1500 Hemi E-torque in a towing drag race. If this video is a testament to the truck’s performance, then the hybrid mill will make for a large chunk of 2021 F-150 sales.
The Electric Ford F-150 Has Been Teased Looking Ugly As Sin
Ford recently revealed a teaser image of the electric F-150 while announcing the company’s new Rouge Electric Vehicle Center. From the looks of it, Ford seems to have followed Rivian and Tesla’s footsteps to come up with a bold truck that doesn’t look to share a lot of similarity with the internal combustion-engined crop of trucks. It’s too soon to comment, but it looks, well, weird.
This Chinese Rip-off of the Ford F-150 Raptor Screams Communist Privilege
It is one thing to be inspired by a product, and another to copy a product. Unfortunately, some Chinese automakers fall under the second category. We’ve seen ripped-off versions of Minis, Teslas, BMWs, and the latest one to join that ‘flattered’ list is the Ford F-150 Raptor. What we see here is not a Ford F-150 Raptor modified by some tuner who has slapped its badge on it. This truck is a production-version vehicle from Foton. Foton’s latest pickup truck called the Da Jiang Jun is nothing but an F-150 Raptor face with some lackluster mills under the hood.
Ford F-150 Intrepid Supertruck by Mil-Spec
Mil-Spec Automotive is known to turn civilian Hummers to monstrous beasts. But the company has worked on trucks as well, especially the Ford F-150. This time, the company again laid its hands on the world’s best-selling truck to give it a twist of its own. The last time the company played around with one, it gave the truck steroids and bumped up the power figures to 500 horses. This time, the Michigan-based company upped the ante and tuned the truck to make 675 ponies! Called the Intrepid F-150 Supertruck, there are a whole lot of other changes that make this Ford F-150 one-of-a-kind.
Be Prepared to Overpay For the 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor With a V-8
The 2021 Ram 1500 TRX (unofficially AKA the Rebel) was a proverbial shot toward Ford, and it hit the Raptor right in the face. Where Ford thought it would continue to dominate the off-road truck market with the F-150 Raptor, Ram took years to develop something that was able to impressively compete, and it even comes with a Hellcat V-8 engine under the hood with nearly double the power of the F-150 Raptor’s puny little V-6. Within days of the TRX’s debut, Ford had a Shelby-powered F-150 Raptor on the road, which is intended to be a shot back at Ram, but a new report paints a slightly different picture.
Let’s All Hope that the Ford F-150 Electric Pickup Doesn’t Look Like This
The three biggest launches of this year – Ford F-150, Ford Bronco, Ram TRX – are already out, so it looks like rendering artists don’t have a lot of unseen products to work on. There is one, however, that we haven’t seen to date except for the camouflaged examples – the electric F-150. But, since it is expected to be based on the 2021 F-150, there aren’t a whole lot of wild renderings of the electric truck. However, one artist decided to let his creative juices flow and came up with a design that seems to be heavily inspired by the Tesla Cybertruck. Gosh, we hope Ford doesn’t get any idea from it.
2021 Ram 1500 TRX vs. Ford F-150 Raptor
From the day Ram revealed the TRX Concept, people have been calling it the Raptor-killer. The concept TRX came with loads of off-road accessories, a big engine, and a star factor that made people believe that it could dethrone the Ford F-150 Raptor. Four years later, the company revealed the production-spec 1500 TRX, and it retained almost everything displayed in the concept truck. At the onset, the 1500 TRX is very impressive, but can this new entrant take on the veteran F-150 Raptor with the DNA of the company that has been ruling for decades together?
This Shelby-Powered F-150 Raptor Might Fire Back At the Ram 1500 TRX
If you think that Ford won’t react to Ram’s mind-bending 702-horsepower 1500 TRX, well, you’re wrong. In fact, it’s highly likely that Ford has been brewing this move for quite some time now and a fresh report quoting a “well-sourced informant” says the supercharged V-8 inside the Shelby GT500 is go for the F-150 Raptor.
Old-School Showdown: 1991 Ford F-150 vs. 1995 Dodge Ram Tug-of-War
Back in the day, trucks were merely workhorses and didn’t come with a lot of comfort features or powerful specs. However, Ford used to offer one particular engine that, to date, is widely considered as one of the best engines ever built. Called the Ford 300, this 300 cubic-inch, or 4.9-liter, inline six-cylinder mill was so good that it stayed in production from the 1960s to 1996. The F-150 with this engine was best-suited for farmers, construction workers, and anyone that required a truck for rugged use. It was almost indestructible back then, but can it survive even today?
To know for sure, the folks at TFLClassics purchased a 1991 Ford F-150 and decided to put it to test. This included a tug-of-war with a 1994 Dodge Ram. Does the F-150 conquer the Dodge, or does it succumb to a newer, better-spec’d model?
The Lights on Ken Block’s SVC F-150 Raptor Will Turn Your Retinas Into Swiss Cheese
If you scroll down our page dedicated to the legendary Ken Block, you’ll quickly notice one thing: Outside of being an epic drifter, this is a man that loves his Fords. Most recently, he’s looking to dominate the Projekt E Series with an all-electric Ford Fiesta and he’s even gone so far as to put a Ford Raptor Engine Inside a Supra boat of all things. That Supra boat is also graciously towed by none other than a Ford F-150 Raptor, but this isn’t any raptor – it’s one that’s been tuned beyond reason by off-road tuner SVC. Now, Ken Block has done some crazy custom lighting work and, well, let’s just say that they can probably watch him Baja that F-150 Raptor at night from the International Space Station.
Watch the Ford F-150 Raptor Take On An Old-School Ford SVT Lightning
We’ve seen a crazy number of performance trucks in the past, like the GMC Syclone and the Ram SRT-10. There was one offering from Ford as well that got all the enthusiasts pumped up – the SVT Lightning. The truck was sent into oblivion after two generations that spanned a little under 10 years, combined. It came with sedate looks and a powerful engine made to sprint.
Today, the F-150 Raptor covers up for it, but is it as good as the SVT Lightning? StangMode has uploaded a video of both these trucks going against each other on his YouTube channel, and it will answer this question for you.
Car for Sale: Unique, Retro 2020 Ford F-150 by Beechmont Ford in Ohio
We’ve seen many interesting Ford dealership packages and they give a fresh twist to your truck. These are mostly available for the lower trims and comes with quite a few features that make the whole ownership experience quite a happy one. One such package has come to light this time from Beechmont Ford. This Ohio dealership has introduced a retro package for the 2020 Ford F-150. It comes in a dual-tone shade, features a Roush exhaust, and oodles of chrome.
Will you Pay $80,000 for a Fully-Loaded 2021 Ford F-150?
Kim Kardashian went about ‘breaking the internet’ a couple of years ago and her husband could do the same if he becomes the President of the U.S. In between these things came the Ford Bronco, which has been the talk of the town ever since it was unveiled and is a worthy candidate for the same award. Such is the off-roader’s hype that many have forgotten the fourteenth-gen 2021 Ford F-150 was also unveiled just a couple of weeks before it.
If it was any other time, America’s best-selling vehicle would’ve garnered all the attention; but not this time. However, there is some news on that front as well. According to a report from CarsDirect, the 2021 F-150 could go north of $80,000. How about that!
Throttle House Clearly Explains Why the 2020 Shelby F-150 Super Snake is the Truck Every Man Needs
Pickup trucks made a name for themselves through workhorse character and hauling ability but who says they can’t boost one’s ego from time to time?
Certainly not Shelby, who jammed 770 horsepower inside the F-150 Super Snake which we believe is, actually, the only genuine competitor for the incoming Hellcat-powered Ram TRX.
Everything You Need To Know About The 2021 Ford F-150
The wait is finally over. This is arguably the biggest debut of the year. With the current-gen in the loop for almost five years, Ford has decided to bring in the fourteenth generation of the world’s best-selling pickup truck, the F-150.
The reveal is even more important because the rivals are catching up in terms of sales and Ford might risk losing the crown of being the best-seller which it’s been holding for over four decades now. Unlike the structural changes that were introduced in the last generation change, this time, Ford has doubled down on technology and a lot of new tech features are now available on the truck.
From the initial impressions, does the 2021 Ford F-150 feel better than the model it replaces? It certainly does.
The 2021 Ford F-150 Will Debut in Less Than a Month - Here’s What We Know
Amidst all the news surrounding the F-150’s delayed production, the company shutting down its factory after reopening it, and the delay in the Bronco and Mach-E’s production, there is finally some good news. Ford has revealed the 2021 Ford F-150’s debut date – 25 June, 2020. The information comes to light through a tweet by Ford’s communications manager, Mike Levine.
Ford F-150 Raptor Rendering Looks Good In All the Right Places
The F-150 Raptor was without any serious competition in its niche so far, but now Ram has come up with the Rebel TRX, or popularly known as the “Raptor-killer”. To make sure it survives the onslaught from its rival, Ford will have to take steep measures to make the truck look more desirable.
One of the ways to do that would be to give it aesthetics upgrades, and here’s a set of renderings that do exactly that. Rendering artist Mo Aoun has imagined the F-150 Raptor, and it looks sharper and much distinct from the actual model.
Here Are the Latest Updates on the 2021 Ford F-150
Despite the pandemic, Ford seems to be working hard on making sure the all-new 2021 F-150 isn’t delayed for long. Few details have already leaked and some are announced by Ford itself, but there are a lot of things still unknown. With uncertainty all around, there is a lot of buzz surrounding America’s best-selling truck. Here are all the updates about the 2021 Ford F-150 to date.
Here’s What a Side Impact From an F-150 Looks Like to the Tesla Model 3’s Side Cameras
A lot of car crashes happen at intersections. Here’s the latest example that has come to light. A Ford F-150 jumped a red signal and crashed into a Tesla Model 3. Thankfully, this wasn’t a fatal crash, and in fact, the Model 3 held up pretty well. Even though it wasn’t a high-speed crash, a truck crashing into a sedan from the side can get devastating. Along with the front camera view, the Tesla owner also released a video that shows the crash recorded by the Tesla’s side camera.
The 2021 Ford F-150 Will Feature the Explorer’s Hybrid System
Our hopes of a strong hybridized F-150 were dampened a few days back when we got to know that the truck will deliver just 10 miles of range while running in pure electric mode.
Now, TFLTruck reports that the 2021 F-150 will be largely similar to the Ford Explorer Hybrid. The information comes to light through a tweet by Ford’s communications manager, Mike Levine. He said that there will a 90-percent part-sharing between both the hybrid systems. Does that mean there will be an increase in the electric mode range? Nope, not really.
First Look: 2020 Ford F-150 by Arctic Trucks
Arctic Trucks became a famous name when its customized truck was featured on Top Gear. Jeremy Clarkson and James May took a Toyota Hilux to the show’s North Pole expedition. Arctic has worked on quite a few trucks to date, but this time, it has laid its hands on America’s best-seller – the Ford F-150. The polar-build specialist aftermarket company has fitted the truck with huge 44-inch tires to tackle the snow. There isn’t much known about this truck yet, but we hope to hear from the company soon.
The Ford F-150 PHEV Will Have Enough Electric Range to Get You Down the Driveway
Since the electric F-150 is still some time away, the focus has been on the plug-in hybrid version of the truck lately. What made this news even interesting was that the hybrid version would be based on the 3.5-liter, V-6 EcoBoost engine. Basically, a lot of hopes were pinned on this hybrid mill considering it would serve as a bridge between the internal combustion engine range to a pure electric truck and would give us an idea of what to expect.
Well, as it turns out, Ford just pulled one over on us. According to Car And Driver, the PHEV F-150 will run only 10 miles on electric electric before switching back to gas. So much for all the buzz surrounding the mill.
Ford is Dropping the SuperCab Configuration for the Next-Gen F-150 Raptor
The 2021 F-150’s engine options were recently leaked and we have a basic idea of what drivetrains to expect from the upcoming model.
The new F-150 was also spotted with the camouflage on. However, we had not heard anything about the F-150 Raptor. Now that the 2021 Ford F-150 is on the horizon, it only makes sense to talk about the Raptor’s future as well. Well, it looks like Ford will be dropping the F-150 Raptor SuperCab from the lineup. According to a VIN decoder, the two-door version of the off-roader will be retired with the current model itself and Ford will sell the Raptor SuperCrew only. Is it a good idea?
2020 Ford F-150 by Mil-Spec
Ford F-150 is the hot favorite pickup truck for tuners and here’s another proof. Michigan-based Mil-Spec Automotive has laid its hands on this truck and transformed into a complete beast. Although a lot of tuners and aftermarket companies are customizing the F-150 in their own ways, this example actually stands out. Mil-Spec has made cosmetic upgrades on the outside, some plush changes on the inside, and a whole lot of changes to the mechanicals and drivetrain of the truck. From our initial impressions, this is one of the better modded-F-150s we’ve seen in recent times.
Here Are the Engines Ford Will Offer in the 2021 F-150
Considering that the F-150 is the most popular truck in the States and has been sitting on the throne for over four decades, Ford has done a fairly good job of being tight-lipped about revealing any details prior to its new-generation launch.
However, it couldn’t do its job as good as Tesla did with the Cybertruck. As it turns out, the different engine options that Ford has to offer on the 2021 F-150 have leaked. A post on NewF150Forum suggests that the pickup truck will be offered with six different engine options. Good to see Ford not downsizing the number of engine options to simplify the lineup.
The New 2021 Ford F-150 Could Very Well Look Like This
Ford is hard at work to bring the new 2021 F-150 to the right shape for a launch and while details are scarce and spyshots even scarcer, a newly surfaced set of digital renderings could shed some light on the truck’s appearance for each one of its iterations, including the Raptor and the all-electric F-150.
In all fairness, Ford won’t go overboard with altering the F-150’s design cues so what we’ll most likely get could be deemed an evolution rather than a revolution. However, these changes will be easy to spot since this is a new generation we’re talking and not a mere run-of-the-mill nip and tuck for the F-150.
Is a Hennessey Venom 775 Faster Than a Ford Mustang Shelby GT500?
Hennessey recently launched its latest recreation of the Ford F-150 called the Hennessey Venom 775. The truck has received a massive makeover, especially under the hood, and looks like Bruce Banner being exposed to Gamma rays. The truck is mighty quick and looks like a monster with the lift job and massive tires. To prove that the truck has more to it than its looks, the folks at Hennessey decided to pit it against a stock Mustang GT350. The GT350 is not an ordinary car, but can the Venom 775 beat it in a drag race?
2020 Ford F-150 Venom 775 By Hennessey
Hennessey, a brand notorious for tuning Ford vehicles, has launched its latest take on the Ford F-150: The Hennessey Venom 775. Hennessey is known to give massive performance boosts to its vehicles and the 2020 Venom 775 is no exception either. Transformed inside and out, the Venom 775 is also a super-quick beast, thanks to all the mods made under the hood. The company has limited the production of the Venom 775 to just 100 examples, though, so if you want one, you need to move quick.
New 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor Rendering Got Us Dreaming
We’re expecting a new-generation Ford F-150 pickup truck to make a debut this year as a 2021 model, after 2019 taught us that FoMoCo sent a full fleet of pre-production prototypes out in the wild for testing purposes.
While the test mules didn’t exactly throw a lot of light onto the new F-150 topic, we spotted a new mesh grille design with a single cross-bar splitting it in half horizontally. There’s also talk about a Raptor-badged 2021 F-150 and it’s this one that led to one particular pixel manipulator coming up with his vision of an incoming F-150 Raptor.

There are lot of reputed aftermarket companies these days like Hennessey, Roush, and so on, whom you can entrust to do a good job on every car they tweak. But, that’s not feasible for everyone; cost-wise. Then there are other companies that will do it for cheap, but will you trust them to do a safe job?
