The all-new 2021 Ford F-250 Super Duty will go on sale in the coming months. Complete Super Duty lineup will get the same refreshments. Moreover, you can count on some significant changes. There will be a new special version or package, called “Tremor.” This is an off-road package and is available in a crew cab variant exclusively.
The upcoming F-250 truck will continue to ride on the same engine lineup. The interior will receive new features and small changes in terms of design. A hybrid powertrain is another likely innovation. It seems like Blue Oval definitely plans to continue with improvements and to deliver the best heavy-duty truck on the planet.
2021 F-250 Super Duty Facelift
So far, we’ve seen spy shots that are showing more than enough. The 2021 Ford F-250 Super Duty will get additional exterior refreshments, no doubt about it. Still, some parts are perfectly camouflaged. On the other hand, the biggest part of the vehicle is easy to recognize. Ford will deliver the new shape of the badge up front. Ram did something similar recently as well.
The front fascia now hosts larger grille and rear fascia comes with revised taillights. Blue Oval opted for additional aluminum bodywork so expect better fuel efficiency due to loss of weight. The arriving F-250 will keep its current high-strength steel frame, however. Blue Oval manufacturer promises better-towing capacity, new exterior colors and much more.
After the latest Chevrolet’s move, Ford will follow the same path and offer more high-tech features. Basically, all of Chevy’s upcoming pickup trucks will receive a significant technology boost. The 2021 Ford F-250 Super Duty will be no different. This heavy-duty truck already provides more than a solid list of standard equipment.
Now, various optional features will become standard on the base trim level. Besides new touchscreen and updated infotainment, Ford will offer all-new driver-assistance features. Moreover, you can expect minor upgrades on the steering wheel and dashboard. Interior layout won’t change at all but you should expect higher safety ratings.
Ford will cooperate with the “XL Hybrid” company in order to deliver a hybrid powertrain. The 2021 Ford F-250 Super Duty will surely feature some sort of plug-in or mild-hybrid system. We are still waiting for the official announcement, though. Besides hybrid, gasoline and diesel engines are in the offer, like on the current model. A gasoline 6.2-liter V8 is standard once again. Everyone thought that this output won’t be in the offer, but here it is. It can produce 385 hp and 430 lb-ft of torque.
However, Ford offers almost a brand-new 7.3-liter V8 gasoline engine as the second option. New V8 generates 430 horsepower and 475 lb-ft of torque. According to Ford, new powertrain offers the best-in-class figures for a gasoline engine. If you want a diesel, astonishing 6.7-liter V8 offers incredible performance. This engine has been rated at 475 horses and 1050 lb-ft of torque. Moreover, Blue Oval promises even stronger performances for 2021. Ford will also offer its new 10-speed automatic transmission.
