2021 Ford F-150 MODEL OVERVIEW

Pros

  • Available hybrid option
  • Thoughtful interior design

Cons

  • No Raptor (yet)

The F-Series pickup is Ford's best-selling vehicle by a country mile, so a new F-150 is a big deal. That's exactly what we have on our hands for 2021, as Ford reveals the fourteenth-generation F-150, replacing its predecessor that was introduced for the 2015 model year. The F-150 sits above the Ranger and below Super Duty F-Series trucks. Upon its release, the new truck will compete with the Ram 1500, Chevrolet Silverado, Toyota Tundra, and Nissan Titan.

What's New

  • The F-150 is fully redesigned for 2021
  • PowerBoost Hybrid V-6
  • 10-speed automatic replaces six-speed

2021 Ford F-150 Configurations

Like the truck it's replacing, the 2021 F-150 will be offered in a multitude of cab and bed configurations. You'll be able to order the new truck with a Regular Cab, SuperCab, or SuperCrew passenger cabin; seating capacity ranges from three to six passengers.

Likewise for cargo, the new F-150 can be had with multiple bed lengths. Regular and SuperCab models offer 6.5-ft and 8.0-ft bed options, whereas SuperCrew examples are available with a 5.5-ft or a 6.5-ft bed.

Engine Options

Ford is offering an impressive six engine choices under the hood of the 2021 F-150, including a new hybrid V-6. All engines are paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission with RWD standard and optional 4WD.

  • 3.3-liter naturally aspirated V-6 — 290 hp / 265 lb-ft*
  • 2.7-liter twin-turbo V-6 — 325 hp / 400 lb-ft*
  • 5.0-liter naturally aspirated V-8 — 395 hp / 400 lb-ft*
  • 3.5-liter twin-turbo V-6 — 375 hp / 470 lb-ft*
  • 3.0-liter turbodiesel V-6 — 250 hp / 440 lb-ft*
  • 3.5-liter hybrid twin-turbo V-6 — TBD

* The automaker hasn't yet released power specs for 2021, so carryover engines are listed with 2020 output numbers.

What About the 2021 F-150 Raptor?

Sad news; we'll have to wait another year for the next-gen F-150 Raptor. When it arrives, though, expect another Baja-blasting sport truck quicker than its own good. If it were our money, we'd wager Ford will cram an uprated version of the new PowerBoost hybrid twin-turbo V-6 under the hood.

Cargo Space and Interior Room

The amount of interior and cargo volume on offer depends on your cab and bed combo. Although Regular Cab examples only seat three across the front bench, SuperCab and SuperCrew F-150s can seat five or six with two rows of seating. In terms of cargo capacity, the 5.5-, 6.5-, and 8.0-ft beds hold 52.8, 62.3, and 77.4 cubic feet of volume, respectively.

Technology

The 2021 F-150 will come standard with an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment display and a 12.0-inch display is available on higher trims. Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are included on all models. Running Ford's newest infotainment software, Sync 4, the F-150 will also have the capability for over-the-air updates. For you audiophiles out there, Ford will also offer multiple premium audio options with up to 18 speakers.
