When compared to it's estimated length from 209.3- 250.5, we get a rough idea about the truck's survival in the pickup competition. Its chances are secure. An estimated lead in its height and curb weight, the 2021 Ford F-150 Regular Cab, can be seen as a powerful rival to others.

What about the safety features and ratings?

Most of the 2021 Ford F-150 Regular Cab ’s technical credentials haven’t been released. Even with the limited information we have gathered, mild speculation can be formed. It's obvious for a reputed pickup like F-150 to have highly standardized features of safety available for the driver. 

A conjecture of available safety measures for the upcoming model are as follows - 

  • Standard automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection
  • Available lane-departure warning with lane-keeping assist
  • Available adaptive cruise control

Apart from safety for passengers and drivers, the safety of money is also ensured by Ford through its warranty and maintenance criteria. 

  • The limited warranty covers three years or 36,000 miles
  • Powertrain warranty covers five years or 60,000 miles

Final Verdict

If you're one of those loyal and committed drivers who appreciate good mileage on a highway and a fantastic pickup view, this should be your instantaneous and dependable preference!

There haven't been too many details revealed about any trim level. Hence with the jump in price from the base model to the highest level of Titanium, we recommend sticking to a combination of all the features the pickup has to offer in Raptor 150. 

Considering all the yet-to-come safety measures remain equivalent in all trim levels, Raptor 150 seems like the best choice. However, if a potential customer is looking for more comfort and the extreme best Ford has to offer, we recommend that you wait for all Titanium features. 

In conclusion, for the upcoming model, there is a hybrid engine being introduced a little later in the year 2022. We encourage all environment enthusiasts to stick with this choice and be patient to reveal their technicalities.
