The F-150 has always been a pioneer for innovation in the pickup truck segment — and that’s not going to change any time soon. Ford recently announced that the all-new 2021 F-150 will come equipped with new high-tech towing and hauling features that make tough jobs easier.

“We’re constantly working to deliver a continuous history of capable, strong, and smart trucks designed to make the F-150 customer even more productive,” said Todd Eckert, Ford truck group marketing manager. “This summer we’re delivering three new features all about enhancing the F-150 customer experience, while delivering even greater confidence when towing and hauling.”

For the 2021 model year, the F-150 is debuting an available Onboard Scales feature. This technology allows you to understand just how much weight you’re hauling. It estimates cargo weight in real time, indicating capacity in three ways: on the centre touchscreen, on a mobile phone through the FordPass™ app, and in graphics on the truck’s smart taillights.

The F-150 will also come available with the class-exclusive Smart Hitch. This technology measures the tongue weight of a trailer that’s being connected, allowing you to distribute your trailer weight correctly and efficiently.

Another new F-150 is controlled damping, which enhances your ride experience and handling capabilities while hauling and towing.

These features are being added to the 2021 Ford F-150 lineup in early June, with deliveries set to begin in late summer. Contact us here at Downtown Ford in Toronto to learn how you can get an F-150 with these exciting new technologies.

As Canada’s reigning pickup truck, the Ford F-150 is known for its capability, durability, and reliability. For 2021, it’s raising the bar once again to become the toughest, most productive Ford F-150 ever.


For the 2021 model year, the Ford F-150 comes with best-in-class maximum conventional towing and payload. It will also come available with the first-ever 3.5-litre PowerBoost™ full hybrid engine option, which offers the most horsepower and torque in the F-150 lineup.


This hybrid powertrain produces 430 horsepower and 570 lb-ft of torque. It also boasts a maximum payload of 3,325 pounds and a maximum conventional tow rating of 12,700 pounds — the most towing ever offered by a hybrid truck.


Beyond the PowerBoost™ engine, the F-150 offers a maximum tow rating of 14,000 pounds and 3,325 pounds, depending on the engine option you choose.


The 2021 F-150 is also available with a range of technologies to help make towing easier. It’s the only truck in its class to offer Pro Trailer Backup Assist and Trailer Reverse Guidance, which makes it easier to navigate with your trailer hitched.


The all-new 2021 F-150 will go on sale soon, and we’ll have it for you right here at Downtown Ford in Toronto.
