The reader of a automotive publication was able to capture the prototype of the updated Ford F-150 pickup. The debut of new items is expected next year.

After the first “spy” photos of the all-new Ford F-150, released in May this year, followed by new pictures and videos a few months later, we had no chance of seeing progress in the development of the truck. However, today, thanks to a reader of a foreign publication, we are finally once again convinced that the work on testing and “bringing to mind” new items are in full swing.

Despite the abundance of camouflage film, you can see that the exterior of one of the best-selling pickups in the United States will not receive big changes. The published photos do not give us the opportunity to make out the front of the prototype, but it seems that there are still body panels, as on previous test cars that were seen in May and August.

This test car also has a set of larger wheels (presumably 22 inches), which are likely to be available on more expensive versions of the car, such as Platinum.

According to rumors, the American full-size pickup will receive a new 4.8-liter V8 engine, which will replace the current 5.0-liter unit. It is reported that he will offer more power than his predecessor – the maximum speed will be 420 horsepower versus 395 hp. for 5.0 V8. Hybrid and fully electric versions of the truck are also under development, but they will appear later, after the debut of the usual versions of the new items.

 It may well be that the official presentation of the new generation Ford F-150 will take place next year, and the car will go on sale as a truck in 2021 model year. The car will also receive the latest generation Ford infotainment system. SYNC 4 was only announced last week and will be available with screen sizes up to 15.5 inches.
