2021 Ford F-150

It’s no secret that Ford is working on a heavily updated new F-150 truck. Most sources expect this truck to be a 2021 model that comes out some time within the next year or so.

What will power the latest Ford F-series half-ton trucks? The prototype you see above has what appears to be an EcoBoost V6 air-intake system. Instead of just one large radiator coolant reservoir, there are two. There is a second smaller fluid reservoir under the hood. It’s not clear what fluid it may be used for. Could it be a secondary coolant system for a hybrid electric system, or something completely different?

There are also what appear to be orange lines on top of the engine that terminate in coils and come from or lead to some sort of a pump or compressor. Let us know what you think in the comments below.

Here is a look at interior and the steering wheel of the new F-150 prototype. The image is not very clear, but the shape of the new steering wheel is evident.

Now, please enjoy several other 2021 F-150 prototype images that show several crew cab trucks with both a short (approx. 5.5-foot) and a standard (approx. 6.5-foot) beds.

As mentioned by others, the orange lines in the engine bay are probably electric lines for the hybrid system. I've seen electric cars with the same color wires to the motor.
