2021 F-150 Trim Levels

Before we get to what the 2021 F-150 can do for you on the road and on the job, you’ll need to know about the six trim levels of this year’s model. Making their return from last year are the XL, XLT, LARIAT, King Ranch, Platinum, and Limited trims.

On top of these six trims, Ford also offers two High-Output special edition F-150s in the Tremor and Raptor.

In the XL, XLT, and LARIAT trims, you’ll find 6-passenger seating and a still spacious maximum seating capacity of five featured in the King Ranch, Platinum, and Limited trims. However, you’ll quickly notice a number of enhanced features in the latter three, such as superior infotainment and safety systems as well as the highly desired push-to-start function.

To match the six-trim lineup of the F-150, Ford offers six available engines:

On the Job With the 2021 F-150

Now to turn to what really matters in a truck like the 2021 F-150: industry-leading power, performance, and handling.

Whether you’re on the way to a jobsite or a vacation destination with the family, the 10-speed automatic transmission and eight selectable drive modes will assure that your ride there is smooth and safe. You’ll even have the option to bring along that extra equipment, heavy camper, or family boat with the exceptional towing capabilities of the F-150.

Depending on what’s under the hood of your F-150, you’ll enjoy an available best-in-class towing capacity of up to 14,000 pounds. The Integrated Trailer Brake Controller and Trailer Sway Control will assure that things stay safe in the back, so you can keep your eyes focused on the road ahead.

Have something quite large but not exactly towable? No problem. The unbelievable towing capacity of the 2021 F-150 is paralleled by an equally impressive maximum payload capacity of up to 3,325 pounds when properly equipped. This’ll make moving even your heaviest furniture a breeze.

Pro Power Onboard

Not convinced yet? Well, we’ve yet to get to the best part. Once again setting the 2021 model apart from any year prior is the class-exclusive Pro Power Onboard feature. With the potential for 7.2kW of exportable power through up to five high-powered outlets, you can essentially turn your parked truck into your very own mobile generator.

When properly equipped, you can even experience up to a mind-blowing 85-hour maximum run time. The durability of the Pro Power Onboard can make your truck the perfect on-site hub to energize a weekend tailgate or power your crew’s operating equipment.

Interior Quality

While the mechanical features of the 2021 F-150 obviously make it a beast built for whatever the job might throw your way, there’s no shortage of flawless quality inside.

Stay wired in with FordPass Connect™ with 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot capability and assure your arrival with the available Connected Built-In Navigation. Take advantage of the latest intelligent tech with the hands-free, voice-controlled SYNC® 4 system.

Throughout certain trims, you’ll find a number of other incredible interior features, including power-adjustable seats and pedals, heated and ventilated seats, and a wireless charging pad.

Led by the breathtaking capabilities of the Ford Co-Pilot360™ technology, find tranquility inside your F-150 and peace of mind that it’ll get you and your passengers to and from each destination safely.
