There will be splashier new-model debuts this year, but there will be none bigger, or more important. The 2021 Ford F-150 has just rolled under the klieg lights at a special event with emcee Denis Leary on Thursday, and it's time to take a closer look. When America's newest full-size pickup rolls into dealers this fall, it will inherit not only the title of America's best-selling truck for 43 straight years, it will also also assume the mantle of being one of this country's chief economic drivers, automotive or otherwise. No pressure.

Certainly, in the move from today's model to this new 14th-generation truck, Ford's designers have delivered one of the more conservative visual overhauls we've seen out of the F-Series lineup in decades. However, a closer look at the truck reveals that's not for lack of ambition: This pickup packs more electrification and connectivity-minded tech than we've seen in any light-duty production truck in the business.
