Ford F-Series (fourteenth generation)

The fourteenth-generation Ford F-Series is a range of pickup trucks produced by Ford, introduced for the 2021 model year. This was the first generation to include a fully-electric and hybrid pickup truck among the offerings, with the F-150 Lightning EV having entered production in 2022. The F-150 positioned above the midsize Ranger but below the larger Super Duty in the Ford truck lineup.

Sharing a strong visual resemblance to the previous generation, the 2021 F-150 underwent a redesign of 92% of its parts, carrying over only its cab, pickup box structure, and font design (including the tailgate script). The bed and cab configurations remain the same: regular cab and SuperCab (extended cab) trucks are available with 6.5-and-8-foot (2.0 and 2.4 m) beds, while SuperCrew (crew cab) trucks are available with 5.5-and-6.5-foot (1.7 and 2.0 m) beds (the SuperCab with 8-foot (2.4 m) bed was dropped for 2024). Along with exterior design changes to enhance aerodynamics, many changes were made to the interior, adding fold-flat front seats and larger touchscreens (including a fully digital instrument panel on higher-end trims; now on all trims starting in the 2024 refresh).

The powertrain line is largely carried over from the previous generation, with a 3.3 L V6, 2.7 L and 3.5 L EcoBoost twin-turbo V6s, a 5.0 L V8, and a 3.0 L turbo-diesel V6. However, the 5.0 L V8 receives a new cylinder deactivation system, called Variable Displacement Engine technology, similar to GM's Active Fuel Management and Chrysler's Multi-Displacement System. All engines are paired to the 10-speed automatic transmission first introduced with the 2017 F-150 equipped with the 3.5 L EcoBoost engine. New for this generation of F-150 is a gasoline-electric hybrid powertrain. Dubbed PowerBoost (the name being a blend between Power Stroke and EcoBoost), this powertrain is the first to be offered in a Ford pickup truck, pairing an electric motor with the 3.5 L V6 EcoBoost engine. The fourteenth generation F-150 is considered the first full-size true hybrid truck since GM's CVT-only Silverado/Sierra 1500 Hybrid was last offered in 2013.

Added to the lineup was a new Tremor trim level (the name derived from that of the Super Duty line and originally used as a special sport trim package for the 2014 F-150).


Available only with the SuperCrew cab configuration, the hybrid version of the F-150, called the PowerBoost, combines a 3.5 L EcoBoost V6 with a 47 hp (35 kW) hybrid motor/generator between the engine and transmission. A 1.5 kWh lithium-ion battery pack is located under the bed. The net gain is 47 hp (35 kW) and 70 lb⋅ft (95 N⋅m). All the electrical power also allowed Ford to have up to 7.2 kW in the bed of a truck, far exceeding the capacity of a normal 120 V receptacle. A 20 percent fuel economy increase over a base 3.5 L EcoBoost has been observed at combined city/highway driving. The hybrid option is $2,500 added to the base price, although it can be more depending on the trim.

For 2024, all PowerBoost models come standard with four-wheel drive.


  • 0–60 mph acceleration: 5.4 seconds
  • Maximum output: 430 hp (321 kW) at 6000 rpm, 570 lb⋅ft (773 N⋅m) torque at 3000 rpm
  • Maximum payload: 2,120 pounds (960 kg)
  • Maximum towing capacity: 12,700 pounds (5,800 kg)
  • Two 120V, 20A household outlets standard
  • Optional system with four 120 V, 20 amp household outlets and one 240 V, 30 amp NEMA L14-30R outlet

F-150 Lightning

Ford unveiled an electric version of the Ford F-150 called the F-150 Lightning, reviving the model name for the first time since the previous Lightning was discontinued after the 2004 model year (and 2004 concept). It debuted on May 19, 2021, and deliveries to customers began in May 2022. The F-150 Lightning has dual motors. It is built at the new Ford Rouge Electric Vehicle Center in Michigan.

Ford had previously announced the intention to produce a fully-electric light pickup at the 2019 Detroit Auto Show in January 2019. Prototype electric test mules on an existing F-150 body were tested during 2019, including a record-setting demonstration test tow of 1,250,000 pounds (570,000 kg) on rails.


The F-150 Raptor was announced in February 2021, and features a high-output variant of the 3.5 L EcoBoost twin-turbocharged V6 gasoline engine carried over from the previous generation. The Raptor now features rear coil springs and is only available in a SuperCrew cab configuration with a 5.5' bed.

For the 2023 model year, the Raptor R made its debut, now receiving the 5.2 L supercharged V8 engine.


For the 2022 model year, the F-150 saw several minor updates, alongside the major introduction of the electrified F-150 Lightning. Most notably, the 3.0 L Power Stroke turbo-diesel engine was discontinued because of low consumer demand (except outside of North America). In addition, a new Black Appearance Package was available to order on XL (only with the optional STX package), XLT, Lariat, and Platinum trims.

For the 2023 model year, Ford launched a special F-150 Heritage Edition to honor the 75th anniversary of the first-generation F-Series pickups. The Heritage Edition, only available with the XLT trim and in a SuperCrew short box configuration, featured special two-tone paint jobs in five different color combinations and exclusive seat coverings. All 2023 F-150 and Super Duty models had the "Ford F-Series – 75 Years" logo on the top-center of the windshield, in place of the Ford logo on other model years. The SuperCab was dropped from the Lariat trim, leaving only the SuperCrew available in either a 5-1/2 or 6-1/2 ft bed. The Tremor was now available with the 5.0L V8 engine in addition to the 3.5L V6 EcoBoost engine. Also for the 2023 model year, the F-150 Raptor R was introduced to compete with the Ram 1500 TRX.

2024 refresh

On September 12, 2023, Ford debuted a substantial exterior refresh for the 2024 F-150, including revised grilles, headlights, and taillights, along with numerous interior and mechanical changes. It is also available with the Pro Access Tailgate, a multifunction tailgate designed to compete with GM's and Ram's counterparts. In terms of trim-level changes, the STX is now offered as a separate trim level from the XL for the first time since 2014, and the Limited trim has been replaced with the "Platinum Plus" package for the Platinum trim.

On the interior, all F-150 models come with a standard 12-inch LCD-based instrument cluster and 12-inch touch-screen infotainment system with Sync 4. A head-up display is optional on higher-end trims.

In terms of powertrain changes, the 3.3-liter V6 engine has been removed from the lineup. Instead, the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 is now standard on XL, STX, and XLT models; the 5.0-liter V8 is standard on Lariat and Tremor trims (as well as the regular cab with the 6.5' bed); the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 is standard on King Ranch, Platinum, and Raptor models; and the 5.2-liter supercharged V8 is exclusive to the Raptor R. Four-wheel drive is now standard on Lariat and higher trims, SuperCrew models with the 6.5' bed, and PowerBoost models. Notably, the SuperCab with the 8' bed has been discontinued in a first for the F-150 lineup, the Heavy-Duty Payload Package has been dropped from all trims, and the regular cab is only available with the XL trim. Ford has stated that these changes have reduced ordering complexity by 90% compared to the previous model year.

Australian export

In March 2022, Ford announced plans to officially export the F-150 to Australia beginning in 2023. The truck is imported in its native left-hand drive configuration and converted to right-hand drive to conform to Australian Design Rules by RMA Automotive in Mickleham, Victoria. At launch, only the SuperCrew body style with the XLT and Lariat trims were offered and powered by the 3.5 L EcoBoost V6 mated to the 10-speed Ford 10R80 automatic with four-wheel drive. Order banks for the Australian F-150 opened in late February 2023 with deliveries expected in the third quarter of 2023, and pricing before on-road costs starting at A$106,950 (US$80,414).



Sitting higher than other consumer vehicles (except for pickup trucks), the Ford F-Series vehicles have significantly larger blind spots in which people or other cars are invisible to the driver. According to data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Ford F-Series vehicles are part of more fatal crashes than any other vehicle in the US.

The 2022 F-150 was tested by the IIHS and its top trim received a Top Safety Pick award:

"Rocket League" Edition

On February 10, 2021, the 2021 F-150 made its very first game debut in the 2015 vehicular soccer game Rocket League, particularly a SuperCab configuration missing side-view mirrors.
