1981 Ford F-150 Overview

The 1981 Ford F-150 continued to dominate the American and international light-duty truck market. No great changes were made to the '81 Ford F150; available trim options included the Sport, Ranger, Ranger XLT, and Lariat, as well as Custom orders.

Short-bed and long-bed configurations made the '81 Ford F-150 an ideal workhorse for farm and ranch; the pickup continued to be an off-road favorite, attracting 4-wheelers and tuners looking for a rugged, fun ride.

Cab options ranged from the Supercab extended cab to a 2-door setup, and you'll find the 1981 Ford F150 in its stock colors of red, black, white, gray, yellow, and silver (not to mention some really far-out custom paint jobs!).
