The upcoming 2021 Ford Lobo will be the new-gen model. It is the F-150 model available in Mexico. New model will introduce a lot of surprises and that includes both new features and a new structure. We are talking about the complete redesign. Thanks to that, the new Lobo will look refreshed and more modern than its predecessor.
A high-strength steel chassis is slightly modified and the new Lobo will use more lightweight materials. The Blue Oval manufacturer said the goal is to work on the truck’s durability and on improving the fuel efficiency. Generally, Lobo will bring plenty of exciting things in 2021, and here’s what you should expect from this pickup truck.
2021 Lobo Redesign
The front fascia will host a new grille that automatically turns on and off the airflow. New 2021 Ford Lobo will also arrive with raised fenders and better approach and departure angles. Thanks to that, the new Lobo pickup will be more fun-to-drive and its ride quality is improved as well. Ford will deliver new bodywork with crisper lines and sharper-looking rear section. Not all of the details are available at the moment. However, new headlights and taillights are reportedly in the works. Ford will release closer details in the coming weeks.
The forthcoming 2021 Ford Lobo will get even more updates on the inside. The interior will get all-new two-tone cloth upholstery and more upright materials. Whatsoever, Blue Oval will update the cheap plastics with more high-quality plastic materials. The base trim level now comes with a 12-inch screen and an 8-inch infotainment display.
On the other hand, the upper trim levels are offering a standard 12-inch infotainment touchscreen. Lobo pickup won’t lack the latest phone integrations such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The latest SYNC4 system should be offered and it will also provide apps such as AppLink, Waze, and Alexa. Safety will be improved as well so Lobo will get more driver-assistance aids.
Gasoline Engine Specs
Right now, details about the powertrain lineup is not available yet. However, the 2021 Ford Lobo should carry on with the same engine options. As this is a model for Mexico, Lobo will most likely deploy standard 3.5-liter V6 and optional 5.0-liter engines. Raptor variant is rumored and this high-performance version should arrive with the V8 powerplant. The standard powertrain generates 375 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque. A 10-speed automatic transmission is the best gearbox choice the customers can get at the moment.
The biggest question is the diesel powertrain. The 2021 Ford Lobo could arrive with the Powerstroke diesel engine which would be an awesome addition. The 3.0-liter turbodiesel with 260 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque will surely bring better fuel efficiency and towing capacity. The towing capacity will be rated at around 11,500 pounds which is astonishing. However, we are waiting for the Blue Oval manufacturer to confirm those reports.
2021 Ford Lobo Price and Release Date
The approaching 2021 Ford Lobo will cost around $32,000. The AWD setup will be optional and we’d recommend it to everyone. Moreover, we are waiting to see if the Lobo Raptor variant will hit the dealerships as well. The sales should begin in the first quarter of 2021.
