While we've already seen plenty of undisguised F-150 prototypes roaming around the streets of Detroit, Ford CEO Jim Farley has confirmed that an updated truck will be making its full debut at the Detroit Auto Show this September. The show runs from September 13 to 24, and is expected to bring at least six new car debuts from Ford, GM, and Stellantis.




During the company's Q2 earnings call last week, Farley announced that an "all-new F-150 pickup" is slated for a Detroit reveal, bringing changes that include a new hybrid powertrain. Keep in mind that this won't be a complete redesign for the popular truck, and instead the updates will build on the current 14th generation model that debuted for the 2021 model year.


Even though it hasn't been too long since the current, pre-refresh F-150 made its debut, recent prototypes have revealed comprehensive changes for the whole lineup, including the hardcore Raptor trim. Alongside the usual cosmetic changes on the outside, there may also be updates to the interior, as a way to play catch-up with crosstown rivals from GM and Ram. Rumors also suggest that the new F-150 will finally receive a multi-function tailgate, something that its Detroit competitors have offered for years now. As for powertrains, the current gas engines likely won't see any changes, though Farley did announce a new "hybrid variant." While the existing F-150 is already available as a hybrid, Ford's CEO is likely hinting at an updated version with a larger motor.



As with most auto shows, the big reveals set for Detroit will likely happen within the first couple of days. That means we should see the updated F-150 officially break cover around September 13.
