Such a Tease
Teaser photo and new details about next-gen 2021 Ford F-150 revealed
We now know more than just that it will be Built Ford Proud. Setting aside the various spy photos and leaked images, there's finally (official) news about the next-generation Ford F-150 coming out of Dearborn.
The first bit is the teaser photo that Ford released today showing the front end of the truck. Here's squarer side mirrors are shown than what is in the current generation and it looks like Ford has sharpened the edges of its LED light signature. But wait, there's more.
Using a little Photoshop magic on the image reveals more details.

Here, it's apparent that the double dimple hood has sharp creases from the A-pillar Ford to the grille at an angle. A dual-bar grille starts to show as do rectangular headlights (top) and fog lights (lower). The truck's bumper houses the fog lights, with a seam just above them.
The stance of the truck is shown off more in this photo showcasing the fact that the F-150 is going the direction of the Chevrolet Silverado HD with a strong, tall front.
It's also easy to see that the wheel arches don't protrude too much from the vehicle and that its roof looks shallow. Those looks are likely deceiving, however. The angle of the image is likely playing tricks on your eyes.
Bumping it up one more notch, the distinct outline of the 2021 F-150 is even more apparent and even more details about the headlights are revealed. There appears to be two bulbs per fog lamp housing. The grille is also shown with more depth apparent.

Automotive News has reported that the truck will feature a lay-flat passenger seat and a 12-inch infotainment touch screen will be available. The truck will also be capable of over-the-air updates.
It is expected that Ford will equip the truck with some level of its Ford Co-Pilot360 driver assist system though it is not know yet if the hands-free driving capability that is said to be coming to the Mustang Mach-E will make its way to the F-150.
The 2021 Ford F-150 is set to be revealed on June 25 at 8 p.m.
