Introduction

Ford uses the 2021 F-150 without less than 6 powertrains—-- consisting of a crossbreed for the very first time—-- plus 3 taxicab arrangements and also both brief and also lengthy bed sizes. Required something to thrill the in-laws? High end designs provide greater than simply a touch of deluxe. Towing something heavy? We anticipate a few of these half-ton vehicles will certainly flaunt an optimum hauling capability of as much as 14,000 extra pounds. An off-road-focused Trembling version is readily available too as well as put on"t neglect the bad-boy F-150 Raptor (assessed individually), Ford"s efficiency giant.

What"s New for 2021?

Though its designing might recommend or else, Ford"s very successful lorry is brand-new from grille to tailgate for 2021. Report has it that an electrical F-150 is additionally heading, yet we anticipate that won"t launching for one more year or more.

Prices and also Which One to Acquire

The F-150 is readily available with numerous body designs as well as bed sizes. While the XLT design is an action up from the standard XL job vehicle, we like the added deluxes on the Lariat. It sets you back over $10,000 greater than the XLT, which might place it unreachable for some customers, however it has the most effective mix of functions as well as cost.

Engine, Transmission, as well as Efficiency

Like the 2020 design, the 2021 F-150 is readily available with a number of engines—-- a 290-hp 3.3-liter V-6; a 400-hp 5.0-liter V-8; a 325-hp twin-turbocharged 2.7-liter V-6; a 400-hp twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6; as well as a 250-hp 3.0-liter diesel V-6. Despite which engine you select, the F-150 comes coupled with a 10-speed automated. For the very first time ever before, the F-150 is likewise provided with a crossbreed powertrain. Ford asserts that the brand-new 400-hp crossbreed powertrain—-- which includes a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V-6, a 35 kW electrical motor, and also a 10-speed transmission—-- will certainly provide to 700 miles of driving array per container as well as can additionally power an onboard generator for maintaining the power moving at task websites or throughout power failures. Customers will certainly have the ability to pick in between back- and also 4x4 with any one of the F-150"s readily available powertrains. At our examination track, a 4x4 Lariat with the crossbreed powertrain trotted to 60 miles per hour in a vigorous 5.4 secs. Throughout our examination drive, we kept in mind a certified trip and also acceptable handling; high-spec versions such as the King Cattle ranch include a variable-assist guiding system that hones actions at reduced rates for a much more nimble sensation. The Trembling design guarantees one of the most off-road ability; it provides 33-inch all-terrain tires, an updated suspension, a securing back differential and also a 4x4 transfer instance obtained from the magnificent F-150 Raptor. At our examination track, the Trembling jumped to 60 miles per hour in simply 5.3 secs, tracking the much more effective Raptor by simply 0.1 2nd.
