2021 Ford F-150 at Bourgeois Ford North in Parry Sound

When it comes to the toughest, most powerful, and best-selling pickups on the market, the Ford F-Series lineup is absolutely peerless. And that lineup starts with the one and only Ford F-150. For 73 years now, the F-150 and all its variations have gotten the job done—from the work site to the campsite—and the redesigned 2021 version is no different. Read on with Parry Sound’s Bourgeois Ford North and learn how the 2021 Ford F-150 not only exemplifies the notion of Built Ford Tough, but takes it further than ever before.


The pedigree of legendary Ford pickup performance is carried on with confidence in the 2021 Ford F-150, thanks to a choice of six engines—including the segment’s first full-hybrid. The first offering, a 3.3L Ti-VCT is no slouch, providing responsive power to help you tackle all your daily tasks, its twin independent variable cam timing operating with incredible precision. Ford’s impressive EcoBoost® technology finds itself in a pair of the engine choices, from a 2.7L turbocharged version offering 325 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft of torque, to the 3.5L EcoBoost® V6 engine that delivers an astounding 400 horsepower and 500 lb.-ft of torque. Rounding out the gas engine options, there’s a 5.5L Ti-VCT V8 administering a heavy dose of Ford’s trademark muscle, alongside a 3.0L Power Stroke® V6 diesel engine capable of hauling the heaviest loads with ease. Don’t believe us? 440 lb.-ft of torque at only 1,750 rpm, good for an 12,100 lb. towing capacity and 1,840 lbs. worth of payload will make you a believer, and quickly. 

However, it’s Ford’s latest engine that really steals the show: the 3.5L PowerBoost® V6. A full-hybrid powertrain with an EPA-estimated range of 1,1000 kms on a full charge and tank of gas, the PowerBoost® V6 changes everything you thought you knew about hybrid engines. That’s because this engine powers the 2021 Ford F-150 forward with 430 horsepower—along with the most torque ever found in an F-150—a whopping 570 lb.-ft, giving it a conventional towing capacity of 12,700 lbs. Ford’s advanced 10-speed automatic transmission returns to help these engine choices harness all that serious power; from improved low and mid range acceleration throughout the power band, to drag-reduction, upgraded gear spacing, and three overdrive gears, there simply isn’t a more efficient transmission on the market. Five selectable drive modes—Normal, Tow-Haul, Snow-Wet, EcoSelect, and Sport—offer even more efficiency and control, depending on your needs and the road conditions. With all those options, there’s a 2021 Ford F-150 out there to help you get the job done—whatever that job may be.

Every detail of the redesigned 2021 Ford F-150 has been poured over by meticulous Ford engineers, hell-bent on ensuring your truck is up to the task. That starts with a fully boxed, high-strength steel frame, giving the 2021 F-150 a lighter yet more rigid frame thanks to state-of-the-art fabrication techniques. That foundation is where a high-strength, military-grade aluminum-alloy body sits—stronger than previous F-150s, but also 700 pounds lighter than its predecessors. That improved strength-to-weight ratio is why the 2021 F-150 is able to offer more powerful engines, better fuel economy, and best-in-class payload. Beyond improved performance, all that added strength makes for a vehicle ready to take on the harshest elements you can imagine. That’s a claim Ford can back up, thanks to extensive testing in some of the most rugged real-world conditions Ford could find.

More than just brawn, the 2021 Ford F-150 delivers in the brains department, too, starting with its array of smart towing features like AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™. The available Pro Trailer Backup Assist™ provides a helping hand when it comes to navigating both truck and trailer—making even first-time trailer users look like seasoned vets—while ensuring you can confidently use the up-to 14,000 lbs. of towing capacity found in your F-150. For all the storage needs not covered by the F-150’s impressive towing and payload ratings, the redesigned interior features an array of amenities alongside the returning fully flat rear load floors with under-seat storage found in the SuperCab and SuperCrew® body styles, providing an array of spots to stash your stuff. And if that weren’t enough, the 2021 Ford F-150 also offers perhaps the smartest, most productive pickup truck bed around. From the available BoxLink™ cargo system and its flexible configuration options, to the stowable loading ramps, deployable box side steps, integrated tailgate step and lift assist, or the all-new available Tailgate Work Surface, you’ll have no trouble finding a way to get the job done in the 2021 F-150. Even under darkness, where the LED box lights and LED trailer hitch light really shine. Like we said earlier—every detail, covered.

Technology & Safety

All that power and smart design make the 2021 Ford F-150 something you’ll want to treasure for a long time. Luckily, this truck also offers some of the most comprehensive safety features on the market. Found across the 2021 F-150 lineup, the Ford Co-Pilot360™ Technology Package provides unmistakable confidence whether you’re tackling the dense urban jungle or a high-speed highway. The Lane-Keeping System will alert you if distracted, reminding you to keep on the straight-and-narrow, while Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking scans the road to help minimize or avoid surprises entirely. Auto High-Beam Headlamps help illuminate the road ahead, while a Rear View Camera ensures you’re covered from behind. Finally, BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert and Trailer Coverage keeps track of those pesky blind spots, whether you’re towing or not, so that you and your cargo can travel safely. Take your Ford’s performance to the next level, thanks to an available 360-Degree Camera (with split-view display) or the available 8” LCD productivity screen, providing comprehensive driving data at a glance. Ford’s revolutionary SYNC® infotainment system has been upgraded as well, and every F-150 in the 2021 lineup features the brand-new SYNC® 4 system—standard. Finally, we can’t forget FordPass Connect™ or the accompanying FordPass app, serving up next-level convenience from helping remind you of and book service appointments, to simply helping you find where you parked. Hey, we told you this thing is smart.

Ford F-150 Model Changes

While Ford could’ve rested on their laurels, and simply tweaked Canada’s best-selling truck—sorry, best-selling vehicle—they decided to go the redesign route in order to offer even more capability, dependability, utility, and power. From the all-new SYNC® 4 infotainment system found standard on every 2021 F-150, to the smart redesign of the interior, the 2021 follow-up to the 2020 Ford F-150 improves upon every aspect of an already immaculate, class-leading truck. Of course, the biggest difference—a class-first innovation—is Ford’s 3.5L PowerBoost® Full-Hybrid V6 engine, packing the most torque ever found on an F-150, hybrid or not.

It’s not a fluke that the redesigned 2021 Ford F-150 is the most innovative pickup on the market today, it’s the result of 73 years-worth of Ford truck ingenuity. Multiple trim levels with the choice between six different engines—including the first full-hybrid truck on the market—culminates in a truck that’s capable of handling the job, whatever that job may be. Add in unparalleled toughness, efficient design, and advanced safety features, and it comes as no surprise that the Ford F-150 is Canada’s favourite vehicle.
