Upcoming 2021 Ford F-150

For more than four decades, the Ford F-150 has been the top-selling model of its kind in U.S. automobile history. Credit is due to this light-duty entry appealing to a wide range of customers: from everyday commuters looking for a family-friendly vehicle with a truck bed to construction workers who need a hard-working work truck.

During an online presentation, Ford revealed that there will be an updated F-150 for the 2021 model year, and while it's not kicking off a brand-new production cycle, this iteration is being touted as the most advanced version of the pickup yet.

PowerBoost Hybrid Engine

The change garnering most of the headlines is the introduction of the 3.5-liter PowerBoost Full Hybrid powertrain. Ford joins the popular twin-turbo 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 with a 10-speed automatic transmission, as well as an integrated 35-kW electric motor that draws power from a 1.5-kWh lithium-ion battery pack to add 47 more horsepower to an already powerful engine.

The result is a powertrain with unmatched towing capacity in its class while avoiding the gas-guzzling habits of its peers. In addition, the motor charges the battery through regenerative braking, thereby promoting energy efficiency by drawing surplus power from the engine.

The PowerBoost joins five other powertrain options, which are already familiar to F-150 enthusiasts. All of them are hefty V6 and V8 engines that, just like the PowerBoost, have no problem hauling just about anything.

Pro Power System

The 2021 Ford F-150 can power up virtually anything-thanks to the all-new Pro Power Onboard system located on the bed's left side. The PowerBoost hybrid model exclusively has a 2.4-kW generator with the option of a more powerful 7.2-kW generator. (Other models, apart from turbodiesel ones, have 2.0-kW power outlets.) From elaborate construction job sites to electric dirt bikes, Pro Power Onboard will never leave you lacking any juice.


For the past few years now, Ford's vehicles have been equipped with the automaker's third-generation communications system, which is known as SYNC. Now, the fourth-gen iteration, appropriately named SYNC® 4, will make its appearance on the 2021 Ford F-150. SYNC® 4 will be anchored by an eight-inch touchscreen on the base XL and certain XLT models. If you get an upper-level model-or, at least, an XLT model with an option package-SYNC® 4 will be accompanied by a larger, 12-inch touchscreen.

Notably, the SYNC® 4 display screen is installed with a landscape orientation, rather than portrait orientation; and it can be split up to access various functions without going from one screen to the next. Supported by cloud-based updates, SYNC® 4 integrates components such as Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ smartphone integration, FordPass remote connectivity, and eight- and 18-speaker Bang & Olufsen stereo systems.

Exterior Design

The exterior design of the Ford F-150 is evolutionary, rather than revolutionary. Still, the pickup is cosmetically than ever before, with a slightly wider stance, 0.7 additional inches in length, and a front fascia that includes swivel-type headlights and "C-clamp"-shaped LED running lights. Also making an appearance are active grille shutters and front air dam for improved aerodynamics.

Safety Technology

More than ever before, the Ford F-150 is loaded with safety technology. The 2021 model year now has hill start assist, automatic high beams, and automatic emergency braking as standard technologies in the Ford Co-Pilot360™ driver-assistance suite. Among the options are Intersection Assist for preventing crashes at intersections by monitoring the road ahead of you, as well as the next-generation Active Drive Assist (i.e., Active Park Assist 2.0) to help with getting in and out of tight parking spots.
