In a photo from, Wednesday, June 24, 2020, the new 2021 Ford F-150 truck is photographed in Ferndale, Mich. Six years ago, Ford bet big on the top-selling vehicle in America, rolling out a radical new version of the F-Series pickup with a lighter aluminum body instead of steel. Now it's time for another revamp, and Ford is playing it safe. On the outside, the truck changes little. The biggest differences are a gas-electric hybrid version, internet connectivity, and a revamped interior that turns the truck into more of a rolling office or even a place to nap.

FILE - In this Oct. 20, 2019, file photo, the company logo stands over a long row of unsold vehicles at a Ford dealership in Littleton, Colo. Ford is recalling about 2.5 million vehicles in the U.S., Canada and elsewhere because of a nagging door latch problem and a brake fluid leak.
