The 2021 Ford F-150 is getting built as we speak, and it’s high time that the automaker let everybody in on what sort of power output they can officially expect. While the lineup remains largely the same, save for the addition of the PowerBoost hybrid, the 2021 Ford F-150 engines squeeze out a few more increments of power where it counts. Particularly in its higher-end engines. Plus, we can expect increased efficiency through multiple powertrains, thanks to the 10-speed automatic transmission paired to all of them, compared to lower-speed units from before.

Even as the new F-150 sees power upgrades to the 3.5L EcoBoost V6 and the 5.0L V8, its the 3.5L V6 PowerBoost that delivers the most horsepower and torque in the pickup truck, at 430 horsepower and 570 lb-ft of torque. No wonder it walked a Ram 1500 eTorque. That’s plenty of power.

Moreover, the F-150 PowerBoost hybrid comes standard with Pro Power Onboard generator, putting out 2.4 kilowatts of power. There’s an optional 7.2 kilowatt unit for the hybrid, as well. Ford says that’s enough to power 28 average refrigerators. Sounds like the truck to have when it comes to California’s rolling blackouts.

The PowerBoost V6 hybrid powertrain is a mashup of the well-vetted 3.5L EcoBoost V6 we’re all accustomed to, working in tandem with a new 35 kilowatt electric motor that produces 47 horsepower. The liquid-cooled 1.5 kWh lithium-ion battery that feeds the motor has been mounted between the frame rails, and features an exclusive vibration isolation system. The engine is mated to a 10-speed modular hybrid transmission, which is produced entirely in house. The 2021 Ford F-150 hybrid will even feature a regenerative braking system, which will help to ensure that the 1.5 kWh lithium-ion battery stays topped up.

Below is a chart showing what we’re looking at for how the 2021 Ford F-150 engines compare to the last generation truck. We’re still waiting for the confirmation of the 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor, and its two alleged engines.
