In a surprising turn of events, Ford appears to be unfazed by the secrecy game usually associated with new vehicle prototypes. Spy photographers recently captured images of what seems to be the facelifted 2024 Ford F-150 in Lariat trim, and the automaker didn't even bother with any camouflage.
The snapshots offer a glimpse of the exterior changes, indicating that the new model will receive some notable updates, though details about the interior remain elusive. The most apparent modifications are found at the front of the truck.
The grille and headlights have undergone a revision, with the latter featuring vertical running lights at the corners. The lighting structure within the lenses has been tweaked as well. Connecting to these updated headlights are new grille styles, giving the 2024 F-150 a refreshed appearance.
The lower fascia also received attention, adopting a new design that does away with angular elements and incorporates rectangular driving lamps flanking a lower vent. Moving to the rear, the changes are more subtle. While the taillights retain their previous shape, they now sport new internal lighting structures.
The bumper accommodates dual exhaust outlets, tastefully integrated into molded arches. Additionally, the tailgate has undergone slight revisions.
Facelifted 2024 F-150 Trim Variants Spotted
The Lariat trim caught on camera joins previously spotted versions of the 2024 F-150, including the Platinum and the rugged Tremor model.
Notably, a camo-free facelifted 2024 F-150 Raptor R has also been witnessed in the wild, raising further questions about what other surprises Ford has in store for its best-selling truck. Although we have yet to see the interior, occasional glimpses through side glass reveal covered areas atop the dash, hinting at potentially significant changes or new features, such as a larger center touchscreen.
Despite the visual updates, it's expected that the powertrain options will largely remain unchanged. The current F-150 lineup offers various V6 engines and a 5.0-liter V8, with the Raptor R model boasting a supercharged 5.2-liter V8.
However, there may be minor tweaks to power levels to accompany the refreshed design. Enthusiasts and consumers alike are left wondering when the official debut of the 2024 F-150 will take place. With several trim levels already "unofficially" revealed through recent sightings, it's plausible that Ford could make an official announcement by the end of August.
Until then, we eagerly await further details and a closer look at the revamped interior, as Ford gears up to strengthen its position in the highly competitive pickup truck market.
