We have just seen the update of the current generation of this 3/4-ton pickup truck and we are already getting reports about a redesign that could happen already in about a year. While this may seem uncommon for most of you, truckers believe things are pretty clear here. While light-duty trucks need to combine performances with comfort and everyday practicality, these models are all about towing. The fact is that recently redesigned were more capable so far. Given the power increase, we could expect improvements with the updated model. At the current point, this truck features similar towing ratings as the Silverado 2500HD, while the Ram 2500 more capable by a large margin. Therefore, may expect to see the 2021 Ford F-250 redesign.
The next-generation F-150 is coming next year, so we could see Super Duty models soon after. Still, this is just a rumor, which doesn’t sound very likely at the moment. Most likely, the current generation will remain the same for a couple of more years.
What to expect from 2021 Ford F-250?
Most likely, the 2021 Ford F-250 redesign won’t happen. This-year update has brought a lot of interesting changes, so we don’t expect other changes so far. Therefore, we presume that all the novelties will carry on for a couple of more years. The recent update has brought new styling, more powerful engine and new technologies. There is also a new performance-oriented model called the Tremor.
In terms of the exterior design, the recent update has brought some pretty nice styling details, so we presume that the 2021 Ford F-250 Super Duty will carry on in the same way. The first thing you’ll notice is a new, bigger grille, while headlights and taillights have been revised as well. Also, we should mention a new front bumper. Not only that it features new aesthetics, but it is more functional as well. It features a design that provides more cool air to the engine.
Models with dual rear wheels feature even bigger grille, which also provides additional fresh air under the hood. Finally, there is a new tailgate design. All in all, the number of new details clearly indicates that the 2021 Ford F-250 won’t change too much in this aspect.
On the other side, the interior design didn’t receive any particular change. The cabin looks pretty much the same as in the previous-year model, except for the range-topping Limited trim. This model comes with loads of new details and features that make it even more luxurious. Some of the highlights are things like additional leather throughout the interior, black ash wood trim and a faux-suede headliner.
On the other side, you may count on big updates in terms of technology features, which clearly indicates that the current generation is about to carry on for a couple of more years. There are novelties like 4G LTE modem and Wi-Fi hotspot, while the Trailer Backup Assist is also available. Also, an important thing to mention is that numerous safety features are now standard in lower trims.
For example, the XLT model includes lane departure warning for the truck and attached trailer, automatic high-beam control, a blind-spot monitor with trailer coverage, and forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection.
The 2021 Ford F-250 will continue in the same way, though we won’t be surprised if we see a couple of additions as well.
Ford F-250 Tremor
One of the most interesting novelties that we’ve seen is a new off-road package called Tremor. This is a brand new package and should be available in the 2021 Ford F-250 Super Duty as well. Compared to standard models, there is a full load of upgrades. First of all, there is a new suspension setup.
This model features more ground clearance and also comes with twin-tube shocks with large 1.7-inch-diameter pistons. Also, there are off-road goodies like locking rear differential, a limited-slip Dana front differential, a rock-crawl mode, and low-speed cruise control. The package is available in XL and Lariat trim levels.
2021 Ford F-250 Engines
Redesigned or not, this aspect won’t be any bigger changes to the 2021 Ford F-250. Count on two familiar and one brand-new engine option. Base models will carry on with a 6.2-liter V8, which comes in pair with a 6-speed automatic transmission. Also, there is a well-known 6.7-liter turbodiesel, which will feature a little bit more power compared to the current version. This turbodiesel V8 Power Stroke is good for about 475 horsepower and 1050 pound-feet of torque.
Finally, there is a brand-new 7.3-liter V8 gasoline engine, which comes in pair with a new 10-speed automatic transmission. The engine is good for about 430 horsepower and 475 pound-feet of torque.
2021 Ford F-250 Release Date and Price
Given the fact that 2021 Ford F-250 probably won’t feature any bigger change, we expect to see it in the last quarter of the next year. The base price will go around 35.000 dollars.
