2021 Ford Ranger
The first one among the most affordable trucks in 2021 is the New Ford Ranger. The Ford Ranger has not entered the U.S. market for a long time. The 2021 Ford Ranger will mark the lineup’s return. To accommodate the U.S. market, the 2021 Ranger is adjusted for the U.S. market.
While it is adjusted in that way, it still resembles its overseas counterparts. That’s right; beneath all those U.S-targeting specifications, there is an entirely boxed frame, Dana axles, as well as a special suspension.
Upfront, the 2021 Ranger will have a restyled front bumper and a new front grille. The wheel design is updated as well. Lastly, the tailgate part is improved. Now, it doesn’t require a lot of force to open or close.
Until now, there is no detailed information about what kind of engine the 2021 Ranger will use other than the 2.3-liter, four-cylinder EcoBoost engine. This engine will be paired with a 10-speed auto transmission gearbox.
While several 2021 Ford vehicles will be released in early 2021, the Ranger is not one of them. There is no official statement regarding the price, either. That said, we expect the new Ford Ranger will be sold in a $25,000 range.
2021 GMC Sierra
Next in line is the 2021 GMC Sierra. The new Sierra comes with a new styling and a wider, boxy look. The interior will receive the most redesigns. It will have more premium materials, extra head and legroom, and a higher seating position.
Speaking of the engine, it seems the new Sierra will come with three engine options. The engines are 4.3-liter V6, 5.3-liter, and 6.2-liter V8 engines. While these engines are not the most environment-friendly, the two V8 engines have improved fuel economy. There is no detailed information regarding these engines’ power, but you can expect they are more than capable of handling daily driving.
Currently, the release date and price are unknown. As far as we know, the new Sierra will enter the market this autumn. As for the price, we expect it to be a little bit more expensive than the current model. We expect the starting price for the 2021 model to be around $21,000.
2021 Dodge Ram 1500
The New model of Dodge Ram 1500 is also one of the most affordable trucks in 2021. Let’s talk about its appearance. The styling of the Ram is redesigned. It has a fresher look with a new logo design, lighter weight as well as bigger brakes. Inside, the interior is not only roomy but also offers comfort and more available features.
There are two engine options for the engine: a 3.6-liter V6 and a 5.7-liter V8 engine. The V6 engine can generate up to 305 horsepower, while the V8 engine can generate 395 horsepower.
The New Dodge Ram 1500 was released in March. The starting price for the new Dodge Ram is around $33,000 for the base trim and up higher trim levels.
2021 Chevrolet Colorado
The 2021 Colorado would get an updated look as it has to offer something new to compete against a legend such as Ford Ranger. While a redesign is imminent, it isn’t likely that the new Colorado will bring too many new features.
Under the hood, the new Colorado will be powered by an inline-four engine capable of generating up to 200 horsepower with 190 lb-ft of torque. This engine will be more than capable of handling daily driving.
A rumor stated there would be an all-new, 2.7-liter, twin-turbo 4-cylinder engine for the 2021 Colorado. However, it is still uncertain. If this rumor is true, this is not surprising given that the 2019 Colorado must compete with the 2021 Ford Ranger.
The release date and price has yet to be announced. We can expect the new Colorado to enter the market soon. As for the price, it should not be too different from the current model. We expect the starting price to be around $21,500.
2021 Ford F-150
Finally, the 2021 Ford F-150. The F-150 has been one of the top options for many Americans for decades. The trend is likely to continue for 2021 with the 2021 model. While the 2021 model is new, it seems that it will not get a major redesign. The reason is that the lineup was redesigned last year. That said, you can expect a tough, interactive, and capable vehicle from the new F-150.
Under the hood, the new F-150 will be powered by a 3.3-liter V6 engine, generating up to 290 horsepower with 265 lb-ft of torque. Ford also announced that there would be other engine options, including a 3.0-liter turbodiesel V6 engine.
The new Ford F-150 will be released soon. There is no announcement regarding the price, but we expect the starting price will be around $30,000.
While there is no official statement about the release date and price, we expect it to be similar to its predecessors. The starting price should be around $21,000, which means it will be one of the most affordable trucks in 2021. The new Silverado will likely enter the market this autumn.
These are the most affordable trucks in 2021. These trucks have their own specifications, which may or may not fit your situation. To get the most fitting truck, you must first know what you are looking for in a truck.
For instance, is your main concern fuel economy? Or perhaps it is handling and steering? Of course, only you know the answer. So, what do you think? Which one of them picks your interest most?
