What is the Ford F-150?

The Ford F-150 is a full-size light-duty pickup truck, and it has dominated new vehicle sales in the United States for decades. Part of its widespread appeal is its seemingly endless range of configurations. Whether you’re looking for a basic work truck, fully loaded luxury cruiser or go-anywhere off-roader, there’s a version of the F-150 to meet your needs and budget.

For 2021, Ford has redesigned the F-150. There’s no revolutionary shift in construction this time around like back in 2015 when Ford employed aluminum body panels. Instead, Ford has focused on enhancing the truck’s capability in other ways. Examples include a new hybrid powertrain, a robust onboard generator, and an updated interior with a new infotainment system.

A unique grille, a stretched body, and one of the plushest interiors in the business turned out to be a winning formula, especially among China’s chauffeur-driven class.

A new generation of the S-Class arrives in showrooms early next year as a 2021 model, and it too has received the Maybach treatment. The extra-plush S-Class will arrive by the middle of 2021, where it will join a Maybach GLS already on sale.

Once again, the Maybach S-Class features a uniquely long body compared to even the long-wheelbase S-Class that we get as standard
