“Our team spent months living with and observing truck customers at their homes, on job sites and on the weekends,” said the brand’s chief product platform and operations officer, Hau Thai-Tang. “Using electrification, we realized we could now give customers something they had long wanted but didn’t think was possible – tremendous power, great fuel economy and all-new capabilities to make their F-150 even more productive.”
In addition to the PowerBoost, which can function as a mobile generator with the standard Pro Power Onboard system, the 2021 F-150 can be ordered with five other engines. The lineup includes the 3.3-liter Ti-VCT V6, 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6, 5.0-liter Ti-VCT V8, 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 and 3.0-liter Power Stroke V6. All are available with two- and four-wheel drive, save for the latter that only comes with 4WD, and they return an EPA-estimated 20, 21, 19, 20 and 23 mpg (11.8/11.2/12.4/11.8/10.2 l/100 km) combined respectively in the 4×4 versions.
