The new 2021 Ford F-150 is a really big deal, with a monstrous power rating and impressive new smart technology. Although it may look a lot like last year’s model, the new F-150 is almost totally upgraded; just about the only things that haven’t changed are its overall size and the 3 types of cabs. Tops on the list of possibilities is the 2021 Ford F-150 engine options – there are seven choices available including a full hybrid model.
Why choose a hybrid engine for a pickup truck? Hybrid engines are exceedingly powerful and more efficient, with the ability to run on battery power alone for short distances. This is a big deal as it can extend the range of off-the-grid use in areas where there aren’t gas stations nearby.
But aren’t hybrid engines less powerful? Not anymore! With the latest technology, you can get hybrid engines that are more powerful than ever. And there’s more: a hybrid engine gives you great gas mileage as well. While it might cost a little more, it will save you money in fuel costs. Towing capacity is also better, which is a real plus if you need to do a lot of hauling.
The hybrid engine is just one of seven engine options for the new F-150. What are some of the other engine options? If you’re a traditionalist, for example; there’s always the tried and true 3.5 liter V-6 with 285 horsepower, the always impressive 400 hp, 5 liter V-8 and a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6 also boasts 400 hp.
Engine options aren’t the only thing to pay attention to with the 2021 Ford F-150. Along with an incredible range of features and available cab-and-box combinations, you also get a couple of brand new additions: the F-150 Raptor model and the Supercrew body style.
