The new models of the Ford trucks are an improved and technologically advanced version of the previous variants. Moreover, each model offers unique features with added accessories.
Here are the latest Ford truck models out in the market:
1. 2021 Ford F-150 Tremor
Ford offers the best off-roading capabilities for all the truck models that it has released. It is especially true of the 2021 Ford F-150 model. Ford advertises F-150 Tremor as the “rugged 4×4 for work and recreation.”
There is no doubt that the vehicle is for extreme off-roading. With better shock absorbers and an upgraded suspension, the F-150 Tremor is better suited for off-roading on rugged terrains. Moreover, the suspension offers better damping and provides clearance to the vehicle. In addition to this, the 33-inch tires offer more grip on the road for a smooth and safe ride.
Other off-roading features that the vehicle possesses include Tail Control, Trail One-Pedal Drive, and Trail Turn Assist.
There have been slight changes in the front and the hood design of the F-150. The aluminum alloy body not only gives the vehicle strength but also makes it light for fuel-efficiency. Moreover, it is military-grade, so there should be no doubt its strength and durability. Despite this, the F-150 Tremor is also for every-day use. The vehicle has a tow rating of 10,900 pounds.
The best part about F-150 is that consumers have an option for a hybrid version—2021 F-150 Powerboost Hybrid. It is perfect for a better fuel economy. For the hybrid version of the vehicle, there is an additional cost of $2500 and up.
You can also have the Drive Assist feature in the car; however, it will increase the cost. The Active Drive Assist feature makes use of camera and radar systems to monitor the presence of other vehicles and ensure a safe drive.
According to the official price on the Ford website, the starting price of the F-150 Tremor (XL Model) is $28,940.
2. 2021 Ford F-250
If you are planning for an upgrade from F-150, the 2021 F-250 model is a better choice. Compared with F-150, the F-250 is heavy-duty with higher tow capabilities. Moreover, it weighs three-quarter tons more than an F-150.
In addition to the off-roading features, the vehicle also has driver assistance features, including Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) and Cross Traffic Alert. There is also the Trailer Coverage feature, which makes sure that you drive safely when towing. These features are some of the best currently available in the market. The Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) and Forward Collision Warning are the safety features available in the F-250.
In addition to standard safety features, the vehicle also offers advanced features, such as the Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS).
The starting price of the F-250 XL Model is $34,230 and up.
3. 2021 Super Duty Ford F-350
The F-350 combines semi-autonomous driving features with off-roading features to give a vehicle that is powerful yet intelligent. Self-driving features include Adaptive Cruise Control and Forward Collision Warning with Brake Support.
Apart from these driver assistance features, the F-350 also offers Individual Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS). Additionally, the Anti-lock Brake Systems (ABS) ensure a safe drive on slippery and rough terrain.
In addition to this, consumers can install more features in the vehicle at an additional cost. The Tremor Off-Road Package provides 35-inch off-road tires, front springs for added height, electronic-locking rear differentials.
Consumers can add accessories to their vehicles for space-saving. Although the lithium-ion battery in hybrid vehicles does not take much space, you can add more cargo space by having Ford truck drawers installed as suggested by decked.com. Adding more cargo space allows you to carry more items for camping trips and long off-roading drives.
The starting price of the Ford F-350 is $35,000.
When searching for the ultimate off-roading vehicle, there are certain features that you should look out for. Traction is one of the features that ensure that the truck maintains a good grip on various terrains. Vehicles on muddy terrain can lose their grip. Hence, trucks and other off-roading vehicles must have good traction to go on any surface.
There is no doubt that the Ford trucks are not only designed for off-roading but also every-day use. If you want both, this is the vehicle that you should own.
