It is one of the most powerful and popular trucks available. With a reputation like that, you may think there isn't much Ford could do to improve the legendary F-150 for the new year. If that is what you think, you haven't been paying attention. The new 2021 Ford F-150 takes power and performance to a whole other level for Jefferson and Perry drivers who are looking for the next big thing. Despite its new look and features, the Ford F-150 maintains its superior towing ability for 2021.

Best-in-Class Performance

The Ford F-150 continues its dominance in the full-size truck class. Not much has changed when it comes to its best-in-class payload. In 2021 the new F-150 aims to become the king with a targeted best-in-class towing ability. Final numbers haven't been released for the latest version of this powerful truck, but it is expected to challenge its 2020 rating of 13,000-pound towing capability.

New Powertrain Option

If you are a fan of the iconic Ford F-150, you are no doubt aware of its six different available engines for a variety of horsepower and muscle. The 2021 version turns that number on its head by adding the first, most powerful hybrid powertrain available. The 3.5-liter PowerBoost Hybrid V6 brings you the perfect combination of gas and electric power. A potent V6 engine paired with a 1.5-kWh lithium-ion battery is tucked in neatly beneath the load floor, so it doesn't surrender any cabin space.

The PowerBoost aims to churn out more than 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque from the non-hybrid 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine. Don't believe for a second it will let up on the power. It is expected to tow more than 12,000 pounds behind it. With a full charge and a full tank of gas, it gets an EPA-estimated 700 miles. To put that in perspective, you can get from Slater to Dallas, TX without stopping for a charge or fill-up.

Generations of drivers have turned to the Ford F-150 when they have a job that requires the most amount of power possible. We predict it will continue with the 2021 Ford F-150. Talk to the team at Moffitt's Ford in Boone to see how you can get the 2021 Ford F-150 to work for you.
