The upcoming 2021 Ford F-150 FX4 is getting a small jump in price. However, the price won’t significantly increase, but the new FX4 off-road package will get the Rock Crawl system. This system made its debut on the Tremor package, and it will additionally improve off-roading capabilities. Indeed, the arrival of the Ford Bronco put new-gen F-150 into a shadow.
We think the 2021 F-150 will be the best version so far, and the FX4 package is better than ever. It costs $1,005, which is not a major change in price, given the equipment it offers. Ford is yet to reveal when the orders will start, along with a possible hybrid powertrain option.
What is Ford F-150 FX4 Off-Road Package?
The 2021 Ford F-150 FX4 is an off-road package that adds plenty of improvements. That includes an electronic-locking rear differential and off-road-tuned shock absorbers. Moreover, new skid plates and Ford’s Hill Descent Control are also available. It is a package that provides a full list of standard equipment.
Basically, if you are looking for an off-road pickup and F-150 is your choice, FX4 is a must. On the other hand, you can opt for a more expensive Raptor variant as well. We are still waiting for the Blue Oval automaker to release the exact list of standard and optional equipment.
What is New For 2021?
Various reports are writing about the new 2021 Ford F-150 FX4 package. This option is available since 2002, and it is a very popular add-on among the customers. The new-generation F-150 will surely provide various refreshments.
However, we still don’t know how this is going to reflect on the FX4 off-road package. We expect a couple of new features while the rest equipment should be replaced or at least refreshed. At this moment, the highlight of the 2021 FX4 package is a new Rock Crawl driving mode.
Rock Crawl System
The Rock Crawl system optimizes the vehicle’s throttle calibration and the transmission calibration. Moreover, the new 2021 Ford F-150 FX4 will get traction control and maximum traction over slippery terrain. The F-150 truck offers Sport, Slippery, Deep Snow, Deep Sand, and Mud modes.
Thanks to that, Rock Crawl driving mode is just one of the eight 4×4 options. This mode made its debut on the Super Duty Tremor package this year. No doubt, new F-150 FX4 will offer the best off-road ability so far.
2021 Ford F-150 FX4 Price and Release Date
According to the latest stories, the new 2021 Ford F-150 FX4 will get a small jump in price. From now, on this off-road package will cost you $1,005. It is a bit pricier than before, but we think this optional package is still more than affordable. Basically, the new FX4 is $100 more than in 2020, but Rock Crawl mode is a true addition.
Combine FX4 with the next-gen F-150 that could also arrive with a hybrid powertrain. Some things are yet to be announced, but we are sure new F-150 FX4 will be one competent off-roader. The sales will begin in the last quarter of 2020.
