There Are Hardly Any Complaints About 2021 Pickup Truck Models

Although there are some complaints about 2021 pickup truck models shown on CarComplaints.com, there aren’t many. Furthermore, most trucks don’t have any complaints filed yet. Sure, there may be some models racking up complaints for the 2020 model year. But overall, people haven’t complained much about any 2021 pickup truck models

The most complained about trucks are the 2021 Chevy Silverado and the 2021 Jeep Gladiator. However, each of those trucks has few total complaints and under five areas of concern. Other trucks still have a pretty clean slate. 

The complaints haven’t added up to specific problems yet

There may be a few complaints filed on the 2021 Ford F-Series, Ram trucks, even the Honda Ridgeline. However, there aren’t enough in any of the categories to qualify as an official model year problem. There are complaints, sure, just not necessarily enough complaints to garner our attention yet. 

For example, the 2021 GMC Sierra 1500 has some complaints filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). On CarComplaints.com, we can see these complaints listed. There are seven for engine problems and four for electrical problems in the 2021 GMC Sierra 1500. However, there aren’t any official problems because there simply aren’t enough complaints about any one issue to consider it a problem yet. 

Are there any complaints about the 2021 Ford F-150 yet?

The 2021 Ford F-150 also has a few complaints. That said, it does not have any official problems noted on CarComplaints.com. There have been some NHTSA complaints for the electrical system (5), brakes (5), and other miscellaneous problems (4). However, there aren’t any official problems reported yet for the 2021 Ford F-150. 

It’s pretty clear to see that this early in the game it can be difficult to discern just what problems 2021 pickup truck models may have. Sure, we can always look at past models. But what about fresh generation trucks like the 2021 Ford F-150? With new components and updated platforms, the guessing game in terms of what problems a model may face becomes more complicated. 

Almost every 2021 pickup truck model has at least a few complaints on file

On CarComplaints.com, nearly every single 2021 truck model has at least a few complaints submitted for one problem or another. The 2021 Chevy Colorado has only 9 total complaints. These are primarily for drivetrain problems and issues with interior accessories. 

Then there’s the 2021 GMC Canyon. This small pickup truck only has 1 complaint overall. The single complaint for the 2021 GMC Canyon is about seat belt/airbag problems. Additionally, the popular and well-loved Toyota Tacoma has 13 overall complaints. 

Are there any pickup trucks without any owner complaints?

Other trucks like the 2021 Ram 1500, 2021 Nissan Frontier, 2021 Nissan Titan, and 2021 Honda Ridgeline don’t have any complaints. However, there isn’t a published area for the 2021 model year for any of these trucks on CarComplaints.com. It’s entirely unclear whether this is due to there actually being zero complaints, technical service bulletins, etc. or whether there are actually not any owners that have complained. 

In fact, the 2021 Toyota Tundra has a 2021 page. This is the only truck on CarComplaints.com with an actual page for the 2021 model year without any complaints on file. So if the no 2021 complaints award goes to any truck, the 2021 Toyota Tundra wins outright.
