Today Ford presented its earnings report last year. Despite the fact that the financial performance of the company was not too high, the presentation contained several details about future models.

As part of its recent meeting, which focused on last year’s US company earnings report, it announced that five new cars will be unveiled this year.

 One of the most important of them is the new full-size pickup F-150, which will be offered in the hybrid-electric version.

 Ford said little about the truck, but previously published “spy” photos showed that the model will have a new false radiator grille with three vertical bars, which is surrounded by vertical headlights. In general, the exterior of the popular pickup truck will receive a slightly updated design.

 While the appearance of the new F-150 will be quite conservative, changes will be more significant in the cabin. Among the changes is the new SYNC 4 infotainment system with a 12-inch touch screen. Previous shots of prototypes of the truck showed that the pickup will be able to boast of a digital dashboard.

The composition of the motor range remains unknown. Most likely, familiar engines will be available to customers – a 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6, a 3.0- or 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 and a 5.0-liter V8. The 3.0-liter V6 diesel engine of the current model should also remain affordable. A new (hybrid) version of the model should appear along with a fully electric version of the machine in 2021.

 In addition to the new F-150, Ford will present this year a small SUV, which is currently known as Baby Bronco. The machine is built on the same platform on which the compact Escape crossover (aka KUGA) is based, so it can be equipped with the same 1.5-liter 180-hp EcoBoost three-cylinder engine. (240 Nm), as well as a 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine with 250 hp. (372 Nm), like a crossover.
