The 2021 F-150 pickup has been completely redesigned, and Ford is talking about some of the new truck’s specifications. The automaker says that the new F-150 has an available maximum total rating of 14,000 pounds and an available maximum payload of 3325 pounds. Ford says that its new F-150 can out-tow and out-haul any other light-duty full-size pickup with those specifications.
The truck is available with a 3.5-liter PowerBoost full hybrid powertrain for 2021 that produces 430 horsepower and 570 pound-feet of torque. That torque rating gives the hybrid version of the pickup the most torque ever offered in the F-150. Ford also offers an available Pro Power Onboard system able to provide up to 18 times more exportable power than its closest competition.
The 2021 F-150 also offers an optional 5.0-liter V-8 and 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6. Other nice features of the 2021 F-150 includes standard over-the-air updates, touchscreens, and Ford Co-Pilot360. Ford previously mentioned some of the new features of the pickup, including Interior Work Surface, Pro Trailer Backup Assist, and Tailgate Work Surface.

The small 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 has 2480 pounds maximum payload along with 10,100 pounds of maximum conventional towing.
The V-8 engine has a maximum payload rating of 3325 pounds with a maximum towing capacity of 13,000 pounds.
