We can’t wait to get you into your new F-150!
Capability is the headline on any full-size pickup truck because most buyers in this segment are looking for important features, like towing capacity and plenty of torquey off-roading prowess. Ford sets the standard yet again with its newly redesigned 2021 F-150, delivering a class-leading towing capacity of up to 14,000 pounds. Add the F-150’s class-leading 3,325-pound max payload, and your properly-equipped truck will make a day on the job feel like a cakewalk.
You want a truck that can get the job done, which is why Ford designed the F-150 lineup with plenty of ways to get you there. It doesn’t matter if you choose the base two-door XL or a fully-loaded, full-Hybrid F-150 Platinum; these trucks are designed to be there when and how you need them.
Dependability isn’t the most exciting aspect of a new truck, but it’s an important one. Wrapped up in all that capability, it’s easy to forget how dependable the F-150 really is. Thanks to high-strength, military-grade aluminum construction, the F-150 is strong and can withstand the rigors of hard work year-after-year. Using aluminum means the F-150 can withstand more payload capacity because the truck itself weighs less.
With six different engines to choose from, F-150 buyers enjoy the freedom of choice. Dial-in excellent fuel economy or opt for lots of low-end torque - or get both - via a complete selection of varied power that delivers all the output you need. The 2021 Ford F-150 is a build-to-suit truck, especially when it comes to engine power.
Starting with the brand new 3.5-liter PowerBoost Full Hybrid V6, Ford puts technology first, layering gas with electric power to give buyers 430 horsepower and 570 lb-ft of torque that work together to deliver 12,700 pounds of towing capability and a max payload of 2,120 pounds. If you like diesel power, choose the 3.0-liter Power Stroke Turbo Diesel engine, delivering 12,100 pounds of max towing ability and a long-lasting power option that puts out 250 horsepower and 440 lb-ft of torque at low speed to assist with towing and off-roading power. If max towing capacity is what you’re after, you’ll want Ford’s 3.5-liter EcoBoost turbocharged V6. It can handle 14,000 pounds of towing when fully equipped, thanks to a special port-fuel and direct-injection system that delivers fuel more efficiently and precisely.
Big V8 power comes in the form of a 5.0-liter, 400 horsepower twin independent variable cam timing engine that’s paired with a 10-speed transmission. This big motor still sips gas, thanks to its Variable Displacement Engine (VDE) technology, a system that shuts off half the cylinders when they’re not needed. Rounding out the engine offerings are the efficient 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6, delivering 325 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque, and the 3.3-liter V6, coming in at 290 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque. It’s tuned to provide optimal power at every speed in its range while also delivering impressive fuel economy.
While the base F-150 has plenty of interior features and tech to offer, if you want to see the best you can get in the F-150, you have to look at the top-tier trim. Transported is how you’ll feel when you slide into the driver’s seat of the high-end F-150 Limited. At a starting MSRP of $70,825, this is not an inexpensive truck, but what you get is an oasis of luxury and tech that converts your truck into a mobile office and a retreat from the rigors of the day.
Leather seats are standard on the F-150 Limited, as are power-adjustable pedals with a memory function so multiple drivers can enjoy dialed-in ergonomics. The seats are heated and ventilated, and the power tilt-telescoping steering wheel is heated for those cold winter days. The standard dual-zone automatic temperature control will keep everyone comfortable to their standards, and ambient lighting casts a relaxing hue inside the cabin. While these are some of the top luxury features, the lower trims still come with many of the mentioned features and comfortable cloth seating.
Tech abounds in the F-150, starting with the centrally-mounted standard 8-inch or optional 12-inch infotainment touchscreen. On the higher trims, navigation is built-in for easy turn-by-turn directions, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity are included. Meanwhile, on the higher trims, the 18-speaker Bang & Olufsen premium audio system will keep your fingers tapping on the heated steering wheel while you stream your favorite playlist effortlessly via the touchscreen. There are even speakers wired into the headrests for optimal acoustic sound.
Ford includes the new SYNC 4 system in all its F-150 trucks. SYNC 4 is the operating system behind your infotainment, offering high-speed, responsive access to your smartphone apps and over-the-air software updates so your system is always current and updated. Ford has even digitized the owner’s manual for quick access or help with a vehicle feature. Forget the 100-page books: it’s all right there at your fingertips.
Ford F-150 aficionados are jumping for joy that Ford is releasing its popular Raptor trim for the 2021 model year. The Raptor represents the grittiest, most off-road-ready F-150 version out there. The depth of included features - from tech to performance to exterior styling - is mind-blowing and will delight Ford truck fans everywhere.
Ford designed the Raptor with a special five-link rear suspension which is designed to morph and give so traversing even the most difficult terrain seems easy. The Raptor is all strength and can crawl and climb nearly effortlessly. The available 37-inch tires are at home on rocky inclines and clear expanses of desert, delivering at all speeds and carrying passengers through terrain that was once unnavigable.
With all that power, Ford still keeps fuel economy and range in mind. This newest Raptor is rumored to have a driving range of over 500 miles when equipped with a 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine. All that range doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice capability: this Raptor has plenty of low-end torque to handle heavy towing and payloads. With all the excitement surrounding this off-road warrior, they'll be driving off dealer lots quickly.
