Even the towing capacity is revealed and every engine option witnesses an increase
When Ford introduced the fourteenth-gen F-150, not a lot was known about the engine range. The automaker announced the engines that will be part of the lineup, but the power outputs weren’t revealed.
Now, however, the details about the 2021 F-150’s power figures are officially out, along with the towing and payload capacities. While most of the mills don’t see a drastic increase, the hybrid looks to be worth the hype. The mill makes 570 pound-feet of torque, the most ever produced by an F-150. Will the hybrid turn out to be the best-selling model in the lineup?
Someone built a Cybertruck before Tesla did, but it’s powered by a gasoline engine
The Tesla Cybertruck created quite a stir when it was unveiled back in 2019. That’s mostly because it boasts an unusual design with extremely sharp lines, but it’s also because Tesla promises performance and towing specs that will put the Cybertruck well above the Ford F-150, Chevrolet Silverado, and the Ram 1500.
Naturally, electric vehicle and truck enthusiasts have lined up up to buy one, but the wait is going to be very long since the Cybertruck isn’t scheduled to roll off the assembly line until late 2021. But a fan from Bosnia took matters into his own hands and transformed a Ford F-150 Raptor into a Cybertruck.
The conversion was done by a team of IT specialists and engineers working at the owner’s company, Stark Solutions.
According to Reuters, it took them eight months to disassemble the F-150 Raptor truck and build a body that looks similar to the Tesla Cybertruck. Although it’s not identical to the angular truck that Elon Musk unveiled in 2019, and it clearly doesn’t feature all the smart tech, it’s a good looking clone that might fool a few people from believing it’s the rear deal.
Ford Confirms the Bronco Sasquatch Package Will Be Available With a Manual
The new Ford Bronco’s Sasquatch package is a must-have for hardcore off-road enthusiasts. Checking that box gets you position-sensitive Bilstein shocks, a shorter 4.7:1 final drive ratio locking axles front and rear, 17-inch beadlock-capable wheels, and a set of 35-inch mud-terrain tires. The only problem? Shortly after the the SUV’s announcement, Ford confirmed the Sasquatch package would only be available with the Bronco’s 10-speed automatic transmission, and not the newly developed seven-speed manual.
The truck world was understandably upset, and took to the internet to voice its concerns. It only makes sense that the enthusiast-focused package would be available with the most engaging transmission, right? Well, in a surprising turn of events, Ford has listened. The company confirmed today it’s changed course, and will now offer Sasquatch package-equipped Broncos with the seven-speed stick shift. Hallelujah.
