Walkaround Video: The New 2021 Ford F-150 Diesel Is Tow Testing Near the Ike Gauntlet with a 8,000 Lbs Trailer

2021 ford f-150 diesel power stroke v6 ike gauntlet tow testing

We have an up-close walkaround of two new 2021 Ford F-150 trucks that are testing near the Ike Gauntlet™ in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. The black truck is labeled with a Power Stroke badge which makes it a turbo-diesel. It’s hooked up to a box cargo trailer with a yellow sticker that says “8,000 lbs”. Here are all the details that we noticed.

The red truck is an extended cab (aka. Super Cab) in Lariat trim with a blacked-out Sport package. It offers body-color bumpers and mirrors. The rest of the trim is black, including the LED headlight inserts. The red truck has a “TT” label on it, which likely means that it has either a 2.7-liter or a 3.5-liter twin-turbo gas V6 engine under the hood.

Ford recently announced all power specs and towing/payload ratings for the new 2021 F-150 lineup. The 2.7-liter TT V6 has virtually the same rating as before: 325 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque. The maximum torque is available a little earlier than in previous model years. The new 3.5-liter TT V6 gains lots of power for 2021: 400 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque.

The black crew cab (aka. Super Crew) is a Platinum trim. It shows the latest towing side mirrors with additional side-mounted cameras for the full 360-degree surround view. The 3.0-liter V6 turbo-diesel is still available and has the same rating as before: 250 hp and 440 lb-ft of torque.
