2021 Ford F-150 Horsepower And Torque Numbers Revealed

Earlier today, we reported that Ford’s new PowerBoost Hybrid powertrain produced the most torque of any F-150 in history, as well as some pretty impressive towing numbers. But that isn’t the only important news related to the 2021 Ford F-150 and its drivetrain updates. In fact, all of the 2021 Ford F-150 horsepower and torque numbers have been revealed, and there’s quite a bit to dissect from this information.

2021 Ford F-150 Powertrain Detail
Engine 3.3L Ti-VCT V6 2.7L EcoBoost V6 5.0L V8 3.0L Power Stroke diesel V6 3.5L EcoBoost V6 3.5L PowerBoost V6
Power (horsepower @ RPM) 290 @ 6,500 325 @ 5,000 400 @ 6,000 250 @ 3,250 400 @ 6,000 430 @ 6,000
Torque (lb-ft @ RPM) 265 @ 4,000 400 @ 3,000 410 @ 4,250 440 @ 1,750 500 @ 3,100 570 @ 3,000

Starting with the base engine, Ford’s 3.3L Duratec V6 remains unchanged from 2020, which means it still produces 290 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque. Ford’s 2.7L EcoBoost V6 also carries over unchanged, with an output of 325 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque, as does FoMoCo’s 3.0L Power Stroke turbo-diesel, which is rated at 250 horsepower and 440 pound-feet of torque.

Ford did give its 5.0L Coyote V8 a slight boost for 2021, however. The V8 now produces an even 400 horsepower, up 5 from the previous generation, and 410 pound-feet of torque, 10 more than before.

The biggest benefactor of the improved 2021 Ford F-150 horsepower and torque figures is, however, The Blue Oval’s 3.5L EcoBoost V6. The twin-turbocharged powerplant now produces 400 horsepower and 500 pound-feet of torque – an increase of 25 horsepower and 30 pound-feet.

As we reported this morning, the 3.5L PowerBoost Hybrid V6 is the new king of the proverbial hill, with an output of 430 horsepower and 570 pound-feet of torque. Each of the engines comes paired exclusively with Ford’s 10-speed automatic transmission.
