Ford Announces The Power Output Figures For Every Engine Option On The 2021 F-150
When Ford introduced the fourteenth-gen F-150, not a lot was known about the engine range. The automaker announced the engines that will be part of the lineup, but the power outputs weren’t revealed.
Now, however, the details about the 2021 F-150’s power figures are officially out, along with the towing and payload capacities. While most of the mills don’t see a drastic increase, the hybrid looks to be worth the hype. The mill makes 570 pound-feet of torque, the most ever produced by an F-150. Will the hybrid turn out to be the best-selling model in the lineup?
2020 Ford F-250 - Driven
The Ford F-Series has been the best-selling vehicle in the U.S. for over four decades now, and this legacy seems sufficient to introduce it. The company has a range of pickup trucks, ranging from light-duty to heavy-duty and for varied purposes. The list is exhaustive, but the bottom line is that if you need a full-size pickup truck, no matter what the budget or usage pattern, Ford has an offering for you, right from F-150 to the F-750.
While the F-150 is the best-seller of the lot and suffices for most of the needs, people looking for a little heavy-duty work tend to hop on to the next available option – the F-250. The F-250 is the entry-level model pf the Super Duty series that also includes the F-350 and F-450. This isn’t outright expensive, comes with strong specs, and fits the bill for most people looking to use it as a work truck. It is offered even with premium features on the top trim.
Recently, the 2020 Ford F-250 arrived at the Top Speed headquarters in the mid-Lariat trim, and here are our impressions of this beast:
The Electric Ford F-150 Has Been Teased Looking Ugly As Sin
Ford recently revealed a teaser image of the electric F-150 while announcing the company’s new Rouge Electric Vehicle Center. From the looks of it, Ford seems to have followed Rivian and Tesla’s footsteps to come up with a bold truck that doesn’t look to share a lot of similarity with the internal combustion-engined crop of trucks. It’s too soon to comment, but it looks, well, weird.
This Radio-Controlled Ford F450 Dually Is The Workhorse of the RC World
Electrification has struck the pickup truck segment, but heavy-duty trucks are yet to be powered by batteries. However, CEN Racing has ‘developed’ an electric F-450 and we are loving it. It comes with all the heavy-duty goodies you’d expect, like a four-wheel-drive system, dually-rear-wheel setup, all-terrain tires, etc. But, the catch is that it is one-tenth the size of the actual truck. Say what?
This Chinese Rip-off of the Ford F-150 Raptor Screams Communist Privilege
It is one thing to be inspired by a product, and another to copy a product. Unfortunately, some Chinese automakers fall under the second category. We’ve seen ripped-off versions of Minis, Teslas, BMWs, and the latest one to join that ‘flattered’ list is the Ford F-150 Raptor. What we see here is not a Ford F-150 Raptor modified by some tuner who has slapped its badge on it. This truck is a production-version vehicle from Foton. Foton’s latest pickup truck called the Da Jiang Jun is nothing but an F-150 Raptor face with some lackluster mills under the hood.
2021 Ford Ranger Tremor
Customers in the U.S. have been craving the Ranger Raptor since it was announced for other markets. Ford has denied giving the pleasure so far, but there is news of the Ranger Raptor finally heading Stateside when the 2022 Ranger arrives. Since that is still some time away, the Blue Oval has decided to give us a taste of what to expect by introducing the Tremor off-road package for the mid-size pickup truck. While it is no Raptor, it is a lot more capable than the existing FX4 off-road package. Ford has priced the package at $4,290, but the catch is that is won’t be available on all the trims.
Ford F-150 Intrepid Supertruck by Mil-Spec
Mil-Spec Automotive is known to turn civilian Hummers to monstrous beasts. But the company has worked on trucks as well, especially the Ford F-150. This time, the company again laid its hands on the world’s best-selling truck to give it a twist of its own. The last time the company played around with one, it gave the truck steroids and bumped up the power figures to 500 horses. This time, the Michigan-based company upped the ante and tuned the truck to make 675 ponies! Called the Intrepid F-150 Supertruck, there are a whole lot of other changes that make this Ford F-150 one-of-a-kind.
Be Prepared to Overpay For the 2021 Ford F-150 Raptor With a V-8
The 2021 Ram 1500 TRX (unofficially AKA the Rebel) was a proverbial shot toward Ford, and it hit the Raptor right in the face. Where Ford thought it would continue to dominate the off-road truck market with the F-150 Raptor, Ram took years to develop something that was able to impressively compete, and it even comes with a Hellcat V-8 engine under the hood with nearly double the power of the F-150 Raptor’s puny little V-6. Within days of the TRX’s debut, Ford had a Shelby-powered F-150 Raptor on the road, which is intended to be a shot back at Ram, but a new report paints a slightly different picture.
Let’s All Hope that the Ford F-150 Electric Pickup Doesn’t Look Like This
The three biggest launches of this year – Ford F-150, Ford Bronco, Ram TRX – are already out, so it looks like rendering artists don’t have a lot of unseen products to work on. There is one, however, that we haven’t seen to date except for the camouflaged examples – the electric F-150. But, since it is expected to be based on the 2021 F-150, there aren’t a whole lot of wild renderings of the electric truck. However, one artist decided to let his creative juices flow and came up with a design that seems to be heavily inspired by the Tesla Cybertruck. Gosh, we hope Ford doesn’t get any idea from it.
This Shelby-Powered F-150 Raptor Might Fire Back At the Ram 1500 TRX
If you think that Ford won’t react to Ram’s mind-bending 702-horsepower 1500 TRX, well, you’re wrong. In fact, it’s highly likely that Ford has been brewing this move for quite some time now and a fresh report quoting a “well-sourced informant” says the supercharged V-8 inside the Shelby GT500 is go for the F-150 Raptor.
The Lights on Ken Block’s SVC F-150 Raptor Will Turn Your Retinas Into Swiss Cheese
If you scroll down our page dedicated to the legendary Ken Block, you’ll quickly notice one thing: Outside of being an epic drifter, this is a man that loves his Fords. Most recently, he’s looking to dominate the Projekt E Series with an all-electric Ford Fiesta and he’s even gone so far as to put a Ford Raptor Engine Inside a Supra boat of all things. That Supra boat is also graciously towed by none other than a Ford F-150 Raptor, but this isn’t any raptor – it’s one that’s been tuned beyond reason by off-road tuner SVC. Now, Ken Block has done some crazy custom lighting work and, well, let’s just say that they can probably watch him Baja that F-150 Raptor at night from the International Space Station.
Watch the Ford F-150 Raptor Take On An Old-School Ford SVT Lightning
We’ve seen a crazy number of performance trucks in the past, like the GMC Syclone and the Ram SRT-10. There was one offering from Ford as well that got all the enthusiasts pumped up – the SVT Lightning. The truck was sent into oblivion after two generations that spanned a little under 10 years, combined. It came with sedate looks and a powerful engine made to sprint.
Today, the F-150 Raptor covers up for it, but is it as good as the SVT Lightning? StangMode has uploaded a video of both these trucks going against each other on his YouTube channel, and it will answer this question for you.

We’ve seen many interesting Ford dealership packages and they give a fresh twist to your truck. These are mostly available for the lower trims and comes with quite a few features that make the whole ownership experience quite a happy one. One such package has come to light this time from Beechmont Ford. This Ohio dealership has introduced a retro package for the 2020 Ford F-150. It comes in a dual-tone shade, features a Roush exhaust, and oodles of chrome.
The Ford Maverick Pickup Will Be Little More Than a Transit Connect With a Bed
So far, the Ford Maverick pickup has been a pretty well-kept secret outside of some leaked CAD images and a photo that showed off what appeared to be the real tailgate with the Maverick name stamped on it. Rumors have suggested that it would be part of the Bronco family and could even be the rumored Bronco truck that has now been all but confirmed to arrive before 2024. However, a new leak via Maverick Chat forums, which quotes a person claiming to work for a supplier, has painted a very clear picture of what we can expect, and it’s probably not good.
It’s Almost Official - a Ford Bronco Pickup Is Coming, But The Question Is When
Earlier this month, Ford announced that the Bronco will not just be a model in the lineup, but will serve as a sub-brand. The reason was to probably give a lot more presence and added value to the brand. Not to mention, Ford’s plans to introduce multiple Bronco-related products.
The automaker has already unveiled the two-door and the four-door Broncos, as well as the Bronco Sport. A Bronco Raptor is also inevitable and could be seen within a couple of years. Now, Automobile Magazine claims that a Bronco pickup is also in the works and is expected to come in 2024. However, the Blue Oval is trying to shorten this period and is planning to have the truck out by 2022. More worry for the Jeep Gladiator?
Will you Pay $80,000 for a Fully-Loaded 2021 Ford F-150?
Kim Kardashian went about ‘breaking the internet’ a couple of years ago and her husband could do the same if he becomes the President of the U.S. In between these things came the Ford Bronco, which has been the talk of the town ever since it was unveiled and is a worthy candidate for the same award. Such is the off-roader’s hype that many have forgotten the fourteenth-gen 2021 Ford F-150 was also unveiled just a couple of weeks before it.
If it was any other time, America’s best-selling vehicle would’ve garnered all the attention; but not this time. However, there is some news on that front as well. According to a report from CarsDirect, the 2021 F-150 could go north of $80,000. How about that!
A New Leaked Image All But Confirms the Ford Maverick Pickup Truck
The ‘Maverick’ moniker has been in news ever since the Bronco news started surfacing the internet. Back then, there were rumors that it could be used for the entry-level trim or a special edition of the off-roader. But, a couple of months back, a 3-D image of a truck’s tailgate with ‘Maverick’ embossed on it started doing rounds. Now, Motor1 has received another image from an anonymous source that has ‘Maverick’ stamped on it. Does this confirm a new pickup truck from the Blue Oval?
