2024 Ford F-150: What to expect

Avatar photo

Since the Ford F-150 was all-new for the 2021 model year, we aren’t due for a complete redesign just yet. But it is time for a mid-cycle refresh, and we expect to see some changes for the 2024 F-150.

Though we currently don’t have much in the way of official announcements for the upcoming model year, here’s what we know and what we expect for the 2024 F-150.

Fewer configurations

One of the few things we do know is Ford Motor Company is going through some restructuring, and the internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicles fall under a division called “Ford Blue.” While there’s a lot of investment going on in the EV sector, there’s cost cutting happening in the traditional ICE business. And, before you jump to conclusions, no, the gas-powered F-150 isn’t going anywhere any time soon.

However, according to a recent Automotive News article, Ford is going to reduce the orderable combinations on the F-150. This is to reduce about 2,400 parts in the current F-150 – which means fewer parts to engineer, test and manage quality.

What does this mean for the 2024 F-150? We’ll likely see fewer configurations, fewer options and fewer trims. While we don’t know what will hit the chopping block yet, expect the lower-volume trims to go away and fewer color combinations. Plus, any refresh that happens to the interior will include more interchangeable features between trims.

Small interior refresh

Due to some recent spy shots, we know there will be a new button array on the center stack as well as new HVAC controls. We’ll also see a facelifted digital cluster as well as some new infotainment graphics.

What stays the same? Pretty much everything else. Lower trims will still get a column shifter, and we’ll still see the same bulky gearshift lever on the console area, complete with fold-flat trick, that’s on current models.

While many people might have expected a larger interior redesign given the complete refresh given to the GM full-sized truck twins, what we want to say is: Ford did it right the first time and, therefore, not as many changes are needed.

A new grille, tailgate

Late last year, we saw some heavily camouflaged exterior shots of the 2024 F-150, but we saw enough to know the exterior will get a minor facelift as well. We’ll see a new front fascia, revised headlights, new rear bumper, new tailgate and a new grille.

Because Ram and GM both have variations of multi-function tailgates, we can expect some kind of tailgate trick on the 2024 F-150. In fact, as Muscle Cars & Trucks points out, FoMoCo has a filed patent drawings for a three-door tailgate system that allows for dropping the tailgate like normal as well as a swing-out door and an integrated bumper step.

The bottom line on the 2024 F-150

Yeah, we’re basing a lot of this article on spy shots and speculation, but now that we’ve seen the 2024 Ford Ranger, we expect to see 2024 F-150 news soon. So stay tuned …

In the meantime, if you had a direct line to the 2024 F-150 and could change or add anything to the full-size truck, what would it be? Comment below.

    The only thing I would change is to let customers get the sport trim (black grille, body color bumpers and side mirror caps) in Stone Grey. They allow that color and trim combo in the Super Duty but not with the F-150 and it’s annoying because that’s the combination I’d like to order. 🙂

    Bring back the option of configuring a Lariat without the chrome package or the sport package. One of them is currently required. With that bring back the 18” Lariat/King Ranch standard wheels (best looking wheel IMO, which are now only found on the Tremor in gunmetal grey).

    Bring back supercab Lariat.
