While the light-duty F-150 model is about to come completely new for the next year, Super Duty models will carry on in the same way. The current generation has been around for just a couple of years, so the 2021 Ford F-250 Super Duty will come with minor tweaks only. There won’t be many novelties, but those that are coming are quite interesting. Of course, those are mostly in terms of standard features, but there are also some new color options to come. The overall design will remain the same.
That means you may count on one of the best 3/4-ton pickup trucks on the market. It stands out in many ways, starting from a capable powertrain, lightweight chassis and lots of customization options. There are plenty of options in terms of customization, so every driver should find a perfect match. The launch date is expected for the last quarter of the year.
What’s New For the Next Year?
As we’ve just mentioned, there won’t be too many changes for the next year. The current generation has been around for just a couple of years, so there is no need for bigger modifications at the moment. Therefore, the most notable batch of novelties will include new color options. More precisely, there will be three new color options in the offer – Antimatter Blue, Carbonized Gray, and Lithium Gray. A bed step is a new feature that will be available in all models.
Another thing we should mention is that the XL Power Equipment package in the dual-rear-wheel model will include trailer-tow mirrors with manually adjustable folding-and-telescoping functions, as well as with heated mirrors.
2021 Ford F-250 Super Duty Engines
While there are some new features we are about to see in the 2021 Ford F-250 Super Duty, the overall design will remain the same. This means that the engine lineup will remain the same. Therefore, you may count on three engine options. Base models will be equipped with a well-known 6.2-liter V8 gasoline unit, which puts out around 385 horsepower and 430 pound-feet of torque. This engine comes in pair with a 6-speed automatic transmission.
Of course, you may also count on a new 7.3-liter engine, which has been introduced recently for the 2020 model year. This engine puts out around 430 horses and 475 pound-feet of torque and comes in pair with a new 10-speed automatic transmission.
Finally, there is a diesel version in the offer, equipped with a well-known 6.7-liter turbodiesel, which has been upgraded recently, It now features a max output of 470 horsepower and impressive max torque of 1.050 pound-feet. This engine also comes coupled with a new 10-speed automatic transmission.
2021 Ford F-250 Super Duty Trim Levels
Despite that we are about to see a couple of novelties for the next year, the trim level organization will remain the same. That means you may count of the following versions: XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, Platinum and Limited.
The base XL model is a typical workhorse and you won’t find too many fancy features in it. This particularly refers to the interior, which is a kind of bare bone. Some of the highlights are air conditioning, vinyl upholstery, manual windows, a rearview camera, four-speaker audio etc. On the other side, all the essentials are on the list of standard features, including telescoping tow mirrors, a removable locking tailgate and a trailer tow package.
The XLT is a bit of an upgrade. This trim level adds features like cloth upholstery, power windows, cruise control, a USB connection, heated mirrors etc. More importantly, you may count on an 8-inch touchscreen and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
The Lariat is probably the most rational option, as it offers a great balance between price and the number of features. On the other side, King Ranch is where luxury begins, while Platinum and Limited gradually add more and more standard equipment. Also, King Ranch comes with loads of exclusive styling details.
2021 Ford F-250 Super Duty Release Date and Price
Considering that there won’t be too many novelties for the next year, we presume that the 2021 Ford F-250 Super Duty will hit the market sometime late in the year. Base models should go around 35.000 dollars. Of course, key competitors are models like Ram 2500 and Chevy Silverado 2500
