Ford will announce its new 2021 F-150 half-ton pickup truck on June 25, but the automaker gave us an early taste of what it will look like ahead of the full reveal, and … here it is. The lighting pattern is very similar to that of the current F-Series Super Duty pickup, with a more squared-off look than the current F-150. The grille and hood also look more aggressive and angular than the current generation — though only slightly, hinting at more of a styling evolution than revolution. (It could also just be the lighting, honestly.)

We’ll have to wait for the official announcement and images to know for certain just how different the new F-150 is from the generation currently on sale, but we expect certain things to come with the redesign. Ford has said an all-electric version of the F-150 is coming within the next 24 months. We’re also expecting a hybrid F-150 and the continued availability of the 3.0-liter diesel baby Powerstroke. It’s hard to believe there won’t be a Raptor version, either. 

Whether any or all such variants will be shown at the launch event, or even available as the truck hits dealers, is unknown.

We also expect significant interior upgrades, particularly from a technology standpoint. Spy photos have shown a much larger dashboard touchscreen than the currently available 8-inch unit, as well as a digital gauge cluster. It will also be interesting to see if Ford attempts to challenge Ram in terms of interior quality and luxury.

Stay tuned for more news ahead of the 2021 F-150’s official debut Thursday.
