2021 Ford F-150 To Offer No Less Than Six Engines Including A Hybrid

The next-generation Ford F-150 offers a hybrid powertrain, a V8, diesel and more – something for everyone.

  • The big news is the new 3.5-litre hybrid V6.

  • The other five are carried over, or nearly, from the 2020 F-150.

  • We were headed to Detroit in a few weeks to find out more but COVID-19 has other plans.


One of the many keys to the Ford F-150’s unbridled success is choice. For the 2021 model year, Ford continues to make its full-size the go-to choice in the segment by offering powertrain options to suit everyone’s needs and desires. The latest and most notable addition is a 3.5-litre hybrid-electric V6.

F150gen14.com, a Ford F-150 enthusiast forum, discovered a document that breaks down the powertrain options that will be offered with the upcoming new 2021 truck. The document lists the 2.7-litre EcoBoost V6, the naturally-aspirated 3.3-litre V6, the EcoBoost 3.5-litre V6 and our favorite, the Coyote 5.0-litre V8

Interestingly, the Powerstroke 3.0-litre turbo-diesel is also listed however is horsepower figure, unlike the other V6 mills, is TBD. You might recall that the Powerstroke is the “oldest” of the recent truck diesel engines (after RAM‘s EcoDiesel and GM’s Duramax) and its previous output of 250-horsepower and 440 lb.-ft. of torque were the weakest. We’re pretty sure Ford’s tuning it to surpass GM’s 277 and 460 figures.

As for the hybrid 3.5-litre V6, there are no indications about turbocharging or horsepower. Relatedly, although the Raptor is listed as a model, its HO EcoBoost V6 is not present. We’re thinking that the hybrid engine in the F-150 may follow the example set by the Lincoln Aviator. Its plug-in hybrid 3.0-litre V6 generates 494-horsepower and 630 lb.-ft. of torque. If the 3.5-litre is boosted, it could become quite the powerhouse.
