After the recent update, we are pretty sure that the 2021 Ford F-350 will carry on in the same way. The current generation of Super Duty Series has been around since 2017 and despite the rivals have been renewed recently, we expect that the current generation of F-350 will remain in the same form for a couple of more years. Therefore, you may expect that the 2021 Ford F-350 will continue with familiar design characteristics. This will include the recent updates as well, as the last-year refresh has brought a couple of quite interesting novelties, including new engine options and new styling. We expect to see it sometime in the last quarter of the year.
2021 Ford F-350 Redesign
In terms of base design characteristics of the 2021 Ford F-350 definitely won’t change. While the light-duty F-150 is about to come completely new in the next year, Super Duty models will carry on in the same way. Mechanically, this means you may count on the same model that originally arrived in 2017. On the other side, the styling has been updated last year. There are new aesthetical details like new grille, revised headlights, new bumpers and more. Therefore, the best we could see for the next year are new color options.
When it comes to interior design, the recent update has also brought a couple of novelties. Still, the overall layout is largely the same as in the initial model. Unlike some rivals, Ford sticks to a more traditional truck design approach, which is all about functionality. Therefore, you won’t find some soft-touch materials inside this truck, nor some super-fancy aesthetical solutions. On the other side, the cabin is super functional and also comes equipped fairly well. Also, Ford offers a pretty wide range of equipment groups, so you can choose anything from typical workhorses to luxury trim levels.
In base models, you won’t find much more than a 4.2-inch center screen, manual door locks, and a rearview camera. On the other side, mid-range options are equipped with things like a touchscreen, digital instrument screen, blind-spot monitoring, lane departure alert and automatic emergency braking. In the highest trim level you may also count on a lot of luxury, on things like leather upholstery, heated seats, LED headlights, panoramic sunroof and many other goodies.
2021 Ford F-350 Engines
The powertrain department will also remain the same. Therefore, you may count that the base versions will be equipped with a well-known 6.2-liter V8, which is good for about 385 horsepower, 430 lb-ft of torque. The recent update has brought a new 7.3-liter V8, which delivers around 430 horsepower and 475 pound-feet of torque. Finally, there is a new version of the super-capable 6.7-liter turbodiesel, which delivers 475 horsepower and impressive 1.050 pound-feet of torque. With such numbers, the max towing capacity goes easily over 35.000 pounds, which puts this pickup on the class-leading position. All engines come in pair with a 10-speed automatic transmission.
2021 Ford F-350 Release Date and Price
Considering that no bigger changes are about to come for the next year, we expect that the 2021 Ford F-350 will hit the market sometime in the last quarter of the year. The price should also remain pretty much the same as for the current model, which starts at around 35.500 dollars.
