As part of a much-needed part-time break at the gong show that is 2020, Ford unveiled the new 2021 F-150 on Thursday night. If you live in the United States, you are probably already aware of how important this is, but in case you are not, Ford’s F-Series range of pickup trucks is the best-selling automotive nameplate in the country. By revenue, it generates more funds than McDonald’s, Nike, Coca-Cola and Starbucks.
With a new F-150 come the inevitable comparisons with its two national arch rivals, namely the Ram 1500 and the Chevy Silverado. While this week’s reveal detailed Ford’s new not-so-different styling, available hybrid powertrain, folding Max Recline folding seats, and hands-free driving capabilities, the company frustratingly hasn’t released many specs on the new F -150 not measured in inches. Price, power, torque, trailer, payload, curb weight and fuel economy figures are being saved for a later date. You know, the people in the deets truck really do care.
So without further ado, this is how the new 2021 Ford F-150 compares numerically to its main competitors. All figures depict 4×4 double cabin vans, entry level V8s and 6.5 foot beds.
Wish we had more specs for the F-150? Yes we too.
