  3. What's New: Looking Ahead at 2021 Ford Models

Derek Shiekhi | Oct 13, 2020

The 2021 model year is going to be epic for Ford and Blue Oval enthusiasts. Not only is Ford expanding the Mustang family by introducing its modern take on a beloved model and an all-electric performance SUV, it's also launching completely new versions of some of its most iconic vehicles.

You'll soon be able to find all of these 2021 models in AutoNation Ford dealerships.

The 2021 Ford Bronco

If you've spent even just a second on social media in the past few months, you've probably learned that the Bronco is coming back. It's a true body-on-fForde SUV and available in two- and four-door body styles with a variety of removable top options. The Bronco gets down the road and over trails with the power of a 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine or 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6. Ford offers both with a 10-speed automatic, but only the smaller power plant can be paired with a new seven-speed manual, which features a special "Crawler" gear for low-speed maneuvers over rough terrain.

There are two four-wheel drive systems for taking on the great outdoors. The entry-level setup consists of a two-speed electronic transfer case that allows you to shift on the fly. The more advanced one has a two-speed electromechanical transfer case that can quickly switch between 2H and 4H. To maximize the Bronco's capabilities, opt for the Sasquatch Package and equip your rig with fender flares, 35-inch tires, special Bilstein shocks, locking front and rear differentials and more.

The reborn Bronco will gallop into AutoNation Ford dealerships next year. Deliveries will start in June 2021. Prices for saddling up your very own start at $28,500.

2021 Ford Bronco Sport

Like its larger sibling, the Bronco Sport is a four-wheel-drive SUV made for off-road action. It comes in five trim levels: Base, Big Bend, Outer Banks and Badlands (a First Edition is also available, but Ford is going to cap production of it at 2,000 vehicles).

Selecting the base, Big Bend and Outer Banks models gets you a 1.5-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine. The Badlands and First Edition versions of the Bronco Sport have a more powerful 2.0-liter EcoBoost I4.  Both engines are connected to an eight-speed automatic. The top two trim levels also come equipped with a twin-clutch rear-drive unit that functions like a traditional locking differential and can route nearly all available torque to either wheel. That joins forces with upgraded suspension hardware tuned to provide better articulation and comfort over challenging terrain.

You don't have to wait much longer to get your hands on the Bronco Sport. It'll be in AutoNation Ford showrooms late this year at a starting price of $26,660.

2021 Ford F-150

The Blue Oval's iconic half-ton truck offers even more ways to work hard and play hard…and even relax hard. The newest addition to the F-150 engine lineup is the PowerBoost combo of a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6, 35-kilowatt (47-horsepower) electric motor and 1.5-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery. Ford estimates that that setup gives the hybrid F-150 a cruising range of approximately 700 miles and the ability to tow 12,000 pounds. All 2021 F-150s are available with the Pro Power Onboard generator that can power tools or more leisure-oriented devices.

Tying down long cargo in the bed is easier, thanks to the tailgate's side-mounted cleats. Indentations on the top are designed to accommodate clamps so that holding down and sawing building materials at a job site is both simpler and safer.

If you use your truck as a mobile office, check out the available Interior Work Surface. With the push of a button, you can fold the shift lever for the 10-speed automatic out of the way, then flip out a panel that you can use to work on a 15-inch laptop or eat lunch. Properly equipped F-150s can even function as mobile hotel rooms. Just be sure to order a King Ranch, Platinum or Limited with the Max Recline Seats that can fold back to a nearly 180-degree angle.

Whether you want to get a 2021 F-150 for work or pleasure or a little of both, you can do it this fall. Prices start at $28,940.

2021 Mustang Mach 1

The Mustang Mach 1 is back! But it's more than just a nostalgia model. Ford calls it "the modern pinnacle of style, handling and 5.0-liter V-8 pony car performance." The new Mach 1 rocks a special grille, Magnum 500-inspired Tarnished Dark wheels (19" X 9.5" up front, 19" X 10" in the rear) and Satin Black hood and side stripes that connect it to Mach 1s of yesteryear.

To make the Mach 1 even more nimble, the Blue Oval recalibrated the MagneRide dampers and electric power-assisted steering, installed stiffer sway bars and front springs and wrapped the wheels in Michelin Pilot Sport 4 rubber. The Mach 1's front splitter, rear spoiler and extended underbody pan significantly increase downforce. That goes even higher with the optional Handling Package, which includes a larger front splitter, special front wheel lip moldings, "swing" wing/spoiler with Gurney flap, rear tire spats from the GT500 and a set of wider 19-inch Tarnished Dark wheels (10.5 inches in the front, 11 inches in the back).

The Mach 1's engine gets some Shelby parts, too. Engineers fitted the 5.0-liter V8 with the intake manifold, oil filter adapter and engine oil cooler from the GT350. Total output is 480 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque. The Mach 1's available Tremec 6-speed manual transmission is borrowed from the GT350, too. Ford upgraded it for the Mach 1 by adding a rev-matching function. A specially calibrated 10-speed automatic with an upgraded torque converter is available on all Mach 1s except for those with the Handling Package.

You can take the newest Mach 1 Mustang for a test drive as soon as it roars into AutoNation Ford dealerships in the spring of 2021.

2021 Mustang Mach E

The 2021 Mach 1 will have some very unusual company on showroom floors. It'll be next to the most revolutionary Mustang yet, one with an all-electric powertrain, four doors and SUV proportions. In dealerships late this year at a starting price of $43,895, the Mustang Mach-E is capable of providing up to 300 miles of gas-free driving range with its 98.8-kWh Extended Range battery or, in GT Performance Edition spec, zapping to 60 mph in roughly 3.5 seconds by firing its 459 horsepower and 612 lb-ft of torque to the pavement like a bolt of lightning.

2021 Ford Ranger Tremor

Exterior view of the 2021 Ford Ranger Tremor

Ford brought the Tremor name back for 2020 with the most capable off-road version of its F-250 and F-350 Super Duty trucks.

This year, it expands the Tremor range with the Tremor Off-Road Package available on the 2021 Ranger. The Ranger Tremor rides higher above rough terrain on specially tuned shocks and springs, FOX monotube dampers with rear piggyback reservoirs, a suspension lift, and 17-inch wheels surrounded by 32-inch all-terrain rubber. Compared to a base Ranger, a Ranger with the Tremor package has more front and rear suspension travel and better approach, breakover and departure angles.

A steel front bash plate mounted to the Ranger Tremor's fForde and underbody skid plates protect it from the natural obstacles it was built to get over. New auxiliary switches make it easier to hook up and activate off-road hardware, whether it's a light bar or air compressor. Cosmetic details, such as a grille with black bars and red accents, exterior badges and seats embroidered with the word "Tremor," further set the Ranger Tremor apart from its milder siblings.

The Tremor package is available on mid XLT and high Lariat Ranger SuperCrew 4x4s for an additional $4,290. Ford will start producing the newest addition to its Tremor line of trucks early next year.
