The Ford F-150 has been the best-selling pickup in the U.S. since the 1980s. What’s made the F-150 so enduring is the fact that Ford is always innovating. The F-150 needs no introduction, its brand name is already well known.
A few years ago, Ford received a lot of flack for being the first automaker to introduce an aluminum pickup truck, but the gamble paid off. The truck has endured many different changes over the last few decades. Truck owners are extremely brand loyal, especially regarding the F-150. Some drivers may be looking for a long-lost sports car to fix up, but many others want to peer into the future of the truck world. The recent unveiling of the 2021 F-150 is a big glimpse into just that. Check out just what we know about the upcoming release below.
25: Built-In Generator
Ford is the biggest seller of fleet vehicles in the world, and the F-150 leads this pack. Generally, a truck generator can cost upwards of $10,000 depending on which features you need. The fact that Ford is offering the only built-in generator in a pickup truck means a lot more companies are going to be able to save money.
Coming straight from the factory ready to work is going to save on overhead. Ford is looking to continue its appeal with corporate fleet customers. The pickup truck market has moved more toward being a luxury vehicle, but people still use their trucks for work. With the 2021 F-150, you’ll be able to get a fair amount of both work and play out of it.
