2021 Ford F-150 Has up to 430 Horsepower, Can Tow 14,000 Pounds

  • Ford has announced the power, torque, payload, and towing specs for the 2021 F-150 pickup.
  • The new PowerBoost hybrid powertrain makes the most power at 430 horses and 570 lb-ft of torque, and the 3.5-liter EcoBoost can tow the most at 14,000 pounds.
  • The 2021 Ford F-150 will arrive in dealers this fall along with the new PowerBoost hybrid model.

    The 2021 Ford F-150 has six powertrain options. Five have carried over from the previous generation, plus there’s a new twin-turbo 3.5-liter V-6 hybrid dubbed PowerBoost. That new hybrid is the most powerful option, producing 430 horsepower, while the 5.0-liter V-8 and 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 see slight increases in power and torque compared to the 2020 model year, and there will also be an even more powerful electric F-150 coming in the next two years.

    A 3.3-liter V-6 is the 2021 F-150’s base engine, and it produces 290 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque—the same output as the 2020 trucks. It’s good for a maximum payload of 1985 pounds and can tow up to 8200 pounds. The new truck’s 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6 also makes the same power as the 2020 model, at 325 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque, and it can tow up to 10,100 pounds with a max payload of 2480 pounds.

    Both the 5.0-liter V-8 and 3.5-liter EcoBoost see slight power increases. The 5.0-liter is good for an additional 5 horsepower and 10 lb-ft of torque over the 2020 model, at 400 horses and 410 lb-ft of torque, and has a max payload of 3325 pounds with a 13,000-pound towing capability. The 3.5-liter EcoBoost now produces 400 horsepower (up 25) and 500 lb-ft of torque (up 30) and can tow up to 14,000 pounds (the previous model year maxed out at 13,200 pounds) with a max payload of 3250 pounds.

    The 3.0-liter Power Stroke V-6 diesel’s output stays the same at 250 horsepower and 440 lb-ft of torque, and it can tow up to 12,100 pounds with a 1840-pound max payload. The new PowerBoost V-6, which is equipped with a 35-kW electric motor powered by a 1.5-kWh lithium-ion battery, is the most powerful non-Raptor F-150 so far (until the electric model, that is) at 430 horsepower and 570 lb-ft of torque, and it can tow up to 12,700 pounds with a 2120-pound maximum payload.

    The 2021 Ford F-150 will arrive this fall, priced starting at $30,635 for the base XL model and topping out at $75,945 for the four-wheel-drive Limited SuperCrew. It’ll be built at Ford’s Dearborn, Michigan, and Kansas City, Missouri, plants.
