2021 Ford F-150 at Midland’s Bourgeois Motors
The first iteration of Ford’s beloved F-Series pickup truck, the Ford Bonus-Built, was introduced in 1948; while it promised an unprecedented utility, few really knew the potential this truck possessed for both the Ford Motor Company and job sites at large. Well, in 2021 that potential might’ve been fully realized, thanks to Ford’s strongest, most capable pickup ever. The redesigned 2021 Ford F-150 carries the substantial legacy of the F-Series lineup with ease, thanks to its blend of advanced technology and rugged, Built Ford Tough ingenuity. Read on to learn more about the 2021 Ford F-150 with Midland, Ontario’s Bourgeois Motors. After all, there’s nowhere better to purchase a truck with this much heritage than the Ford dealer that’s faithfully served the Midland and surrounding areas since 1945!
Ford F-150 Exterior Design
The 2021 Ford F-150 is able to bring such unparalleled power to the table thanks to a strict adherence to the brand’s motto; that’s to say, this truck is Built Ford Tough. A high-strength, military-grade aluminum-alloy body results in a peerless strength-to-weight ratio; when combined with the F-150’s fully boxed high-strength steel frame, the result is one tough truck—with best-in-class payload to boot. And while the F-150 Raptor is the de-facto off-road pickup on the market today, you’ll find either an advanced ESOF (electronic shift-on-the-fly) system or automatic 4WD across the entire F-150 lineup. Upgrade to the FX4 Off-Road Package, and you’ll not only gain access to an electronic-locking rear differential, Hill Descent Control™, off-road tuned shock absorbers, and skid plates—but also, access to any path, no matter how rough. The 2021 Ford F-150 also offers a variety of finely-calibrated details so you can work smarter, not just harder. From the available, fully-configurable BoxLink™ pickup bed system to the LED box lights, stowable loading ramps, remote tailgate release, deployable box side steps, and integrated tailgate step with lift assist, no detail has been overlooked in making this the strongest and smartest F-Series to date—including the all new available Tailgate Work Surface. After all that, we almost forgot to mention what a good-looking truck the 2021 F-150 is; but then again, what can we say that hasn’t already been said by the strong lines, powerful stance, and double-bar grille graced with Ford’s signature blue oval.

*when properly equipped with the appropriate package/equipment
Regardless of how strong its frame, or how handsome the 2021 Ford F-150 might look, pickups are ultimately judged by their performance on the job site—and this truck proves its worth time and time again. It all begins with a choice of six potent engines, each one providing impressive torque and allowing Ford to boast confidently about its best-in-class capabilities. From the 325 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft of gas torque offered by the 2.7L EcoBoost® engine, to the 400 horsepower cranked out by the muscular 5.0L Ti-VCT V8—and everything in-between—the 2021 F-150 takes its performance seriously. For those that prefer the power of diesel, the 3.0L Power Stroke® turbo diesel engine delivers a hefty 440 lb.-ft of torque at as low as 1,750 rpm, making it good for a 12,100 lb. towing capacity and 1,840 lb. payload.
But where the 2021 Ford F-150 really stands out compared to the 2020 model, is the all-new 3.5L PowerBoost® Full-Hybrid V6 engine. The first-ever full hybrid in the segment, this engine provides an incredible 12,700 lbs worth of towing ability, thanks to 430 horsepower and 570 lb-ft. of torque—the most torque ever found on an F-150. And thanks to its hybrid powertrain, it also boasts an EPA-estimated range of about 1,100 kms on a full tank of gas. Of course, the other engines offer some serious efficiency thanks to Ford’s incredibly clean-running and advanced 10-speed automatic transmission. On-demand acceleration throughout the power band ensures you’re getting heavy hauling without heavy gas station bills, while five selectable drive modes—Normal, Tow-Haul, Snow-Wet, EcoSelect, and Sport—allow you to customize your drive for optimum efficiency.
Ford’s engineers didn’t stop at creating the toughest and strongest truck on the market—they decided to make it one of the smartest, safest, and most comfortable, too. An all-new interior offers clever in-cab storage options like an under-seat rear storage area that complements the standard door-trim panel bins, while laptop storage and hanging folders are found in the available flow-through centre console. The incredibly spacious four-door SuperCrew® can accommodate up to six passengers, with the optional Twin-Panel Moonroof making it outright palatial. For those looking to enjoy more stylish travel arrangements, the available Ice Blue® ambient lighting will help set the tone while the available B&O™ Sound System by Bang & Olufsen is specially tuned to provide top-tier sound in the F-150’s interior—an interior offering ergonomically designed seats which, in the case of the F-150 Limited, features rich two-tone leather.
Technology & Safety
Of course, all that comfort doesn’t mean a thing if you don’t feel confident; that’s where Ford’s array of advanced safety features—Ford Co-Pilot 360™—come into play. BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert and Trailer Coverage, Lane-Keeping System, Auto High-Beam Headlamps, and Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking combine to keep you safe on every road. Add in a Rear View Camera, or the available 360-Degree Camera with split-view display, and you’ll have a bird’s eye view of every situation, allowing you to manoeuvre through tight off-road trails or simply fit in snug parking spots in the urban jungle. The available 8” LCD productivity screen grants instant access to important information while you’re behind the wheel, and Ford’s revolutionary FordPass Connect™ app and Wi-Fi Hotspot allow you to stay connected to or in your Ford, no matter where your travels may take you—all while the newest iteration of Ford’s revolutionary SYNC® system, SYNC® 4, comes standard on every model.
Ford F-150 Model Changes
The 2021 version of Ford’s flagship pickup hasn’t strayed too far from the formula that not only made the 2020 Ford F-150 Canada’s best-selling truck, but Canada’s best-selling vehicle, period—despite a comprehensive redesign. In fact, Ford’s F-Series has taken the top spot as Canada’s best-selling vehicle every year since 2008, and has been the number one choice for pickup trucks for 54 years straight. However, the 2021 F-150 does offer a variety of new, and more comprehensive features, namey the standard inclusion of Ford’s SYNC® 4 infotainment system. And while the usual array of new paint colours and Appearance Packages help the new look of the F-150 really stand out, the biggest change is the addition of the impressively powerful and efficient hybrid powertrain option: the 3.5L PowerBoost® Full-Hybrid V6 that gives the 2021 version of this legendary pickup the most torque ever found in an F-150. Of course, this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to all that’s offered by the 2021 Ford F-150!
