2021 Ford F-150
There’s an all-new Ford F-150 headed our way, with the arrival of the 2021 Ford F-150 this fall.
The previous generation brought aluminum bodies to the light-duty pickup truck segment, as well as made turbo power the norm. This gen. sees Ford deliver a 3.5-liter V6-based full-hybrid that will tow more than 12,000-lbs., or get you 700-miles on a tank of gas, plus an onboard Pro Power generator to power your jobsite, campsite, or tailgate festivities.
No denying the more rugged but still evolutionary turn to the exterior, and overall size remains about the same as the current model, just a tad of increased width; and with Regular, SuperCab, and SuperCrew cabs along with 3 bed lengths, configurations carry over as well.
In addition to the 3.5-liter PowerBoost hybrid, there are 5 other engines to choose from: 3.3-liter V6, 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6, 5.0-liter V8, 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6, and 3.0-liter Powerstroke turbo-diesel V6.
All are updated over the current versions, and come with a 10-speed automatic transmission and available 4-wheel-drive.
Ford engineers put in some overtime at their job to help your day job go smoother than ever. Not only are there 3-different Pro Power onboard generators to choose from, ranging from 2.0 to 7.2 kilowatts, depending on drivetrain; there are thoughtful extras such as a laptop workstation, ruler built into the tailgate, and even max recline seats for a midday “brainstorming session” err...nap.
"Being the number-one selling vehicle in America for what seems like forever now, a new F-150 is a big deal and it looks like they've thought of everything. There are so many new features designed to make your life easier. My favorite is obviously the onboard generator. Hybrids were already the ultimate tailgate vehicle. Now with up to 7200 watts of available power, my mind is just swimming right now thinking of all the things I can plug in at the next tailgate if we ever get around to doing such things again."
Lots on new tech as well; SYNC 4 with automatic over-the-air updates, Co-Pilot 360 2.0 driver assistance, Active Drive Assist, and of course Trailer Reverse Guidance and Pro Trailer Backup Assist.
Pricing will be announced closer to this fall’s arrival; so stay tuned for more info on the 2021 Ford F-150.
