5 reasons to buy the 2021 Ford F150

1. Filled with useful features

Whether loading materials into the bed, running power tools on a remote work site or powering a travel trailer off the grid, the 2021 Ford F150 is packed with utility. Features like clamp grip points, tool rests, and a simple ruler for measuring are scattered throughout the truck bed. The available under-seat storage in SuperCrew cabs is ideal for small tools and equipment. You can open the center console for a large, flat desk surface with AC power to use your work laptop. And the available 7.2kW generator (3.5L PowerBoost engine only) adds a 240V 30A plug, powering an impressive array of tools.

2. Several engine options

The 2021 Ford F150 has a selection of engines that should suit whatever hauling or towing you need. The 2021 F150 base engine is a 290-hp 3.3L V6. A pair of twin-turbocharged V6 engines create ample low-end torque for towing needs. A 5.0L V8 engine balances smooth power and torque for a more traditional truck feel. Finally, a 3.0L diesel engine combines low-end torque with an EPA-estimated 27 mpg highway to stretch out the miles on a road trip.

 Every engine is available on any trim as an option, so keep an eye out for the one that will suit you.

3. Impressive hauling capability

From travel trailers to a mobile workshop, the 2021 Ford F150's payload and towing capability seem incredible for a half-ton truck. The F150 with 4WD, a 6.5-ft bed, and a 5.0L V8 engine can tow an estimated 13,000 lbs when properly equipped.

 Get the most towing and payload from the 2021 Ford F150 with 2WD and the twin-turbocharged 3.5L V6—it can tow an estimated 14,000 lbs and has a maximum payload of 2,980 lbs when properly equipped.

4. A hybrid powertrain

To add some of the advanced power options that are available on the 2021 Ford F150, look for the PowerBoost hybrid drivetrain. In addition to the onboard generator, the PowerBoost hybrid gives the 2021 F150 impressive fuel economy—with an EPA-estimated 24 mpg city, highway, and combined, the 2021 Ford F150 PowerBoost 4WD is an ideal truck for the urban cityscape.

5. Modern tech for a modern work truck

The 2021 Ford F150 makes navigating parking lots and reversing trailers much easier. And with a 12-inch touchscreen (Lariat trim and higher), the infotainment system is a breeze to use. Plus, the Trailer Tow Package adds a 360-degree camera, hitch guidance, and Pro Trailer Backup Assist, giving you confidence when towing.
