Considering the Ford F-150 is the best selling vehicle in the United States, the fact that we caught the 2021 Ford F-150 test mule is huge. This is a vehicle that will host a ton of new technology including hybrid, diesel and all-electric drivetrains. This vehicle was caught testing at high elevation in the Rocky Mountains.

Ford recently announced that they intended to build all-electric trucks in the future. To punctuate that fact, they recently invested 500-million dollars into startup electric truck maker Rivian. It’s a pretty good bet that the technology Rivian uses will find its way into some Ford products soon.

Still, this 2021 Ford F-150 wasn’t an all-electric vehicle. If anything, it could have been a hybrid vehicle, which is something we know Ford is intensely invested in. It may have been a diesel as well; however, we heard no typical; diesel clatter when the truck accelerated away.

Contrary to some speculation, we didn’t call Ford and ask when they would be testing their 2021 Ford F-150. Please; do you think it’s that simple? This takes a lot off work and a ton of time to get right. Often, we lurk in the shadows all day and find nothing. This time we were lucky enough to get this prize AND we caught the upcoming Ford Bronco testing as well! You can read about that (here).

We expect to learn a lot more about the 2021 Ford F-150 soon. Stay tuned!

Lots of stuff to see – if you know what to look for. Photo: TFLtruck
