The next year will be extremely exciting when it comes to Ford’s pickup truck lineup. Not only that the all-new best-seller F-150 is under development but the Blue Oval company has also prepared a nice update for medium-duty trucks. Of course, we are talking about 2021 Ford F-650 and F-750 models, which are coming with a fine load of novelties. Thanks to them, we have no doubt that the truck will retail their leading position in the segment of commercial trucks.
When it comes to important updates for the next year, the first thing we should mention is a revised engine lineup. There will be two units in the offer and these will be the only trucks that will have both gasoline and diesel engine options in the offer. Also, there is an updated dashboard, as well as a lot of new interesting things in terms of standard features.
2021 Ford F-650 and F-750 Design
In terms of base design characteristics, these models haven’t changed much. Of course, we are talking about medium-duty trucks, which are all about great capabilities. This is a pickup truck designed for work, so it comes in a typical chassis cab layout. A great thing is that can configure it in any way you want, while the company offers three basic versions. Those would be Pro Loader, Straight Frame and Tractor, each one with oriented to a specific area of business.
While the exterior design seems pretty basic and completely fits the segment of medium-duty trucks, the cabin is a completely different story. Despite we are talking about vehicles that are primarily designed for work, the interior of both 2021 Ford F-650 and 2021 Ford F-750 are very pleasant places to be in. The cabin is spacious and comfortable, while this update also brings a couple of quite interesting novelties.
The first thing we should mention is a new dashboard, which has been significantly updated. There is a completely new instrument cluster, as well as a new steering column, steering wheel, and cluster. All this makes the new 2021 Ford F-650 look better, but it’s also more functional, while these changes also provide better ergonomics. While the new instrument cluster looks spectacular, we also like the new AM/FM radio system, which comes with Bluetooth and USB ports.
2021 Ford F-650 and 750 Engines
When it comes to the engine lineup, the biggest novelty is definitely a new 7.3-liter V8 gasoline unit. The new engine looks really impressive.

The 2021 Ford F-750 will also come with this new engine, which makes Ford the only manufacturer in the segment that makes its own transmission and engine.

The same engine is available in Super Duty models as well.
