It is reported that the new version of the American full-size pickup truck, which will be sold as a model year 2021 car, will receive a 4.8-liter V8 rated at 420 hp. The 5.0-liter Coyote V8 will be discontinued.

The new (fourteenth) generation of the American “workhorse” will go on sale, most likely as a 2021 model year car with some rather big changes.

We have already seen “spy” images of a fully electric prototype of a truck during a series of road tests. Standard versions of the F-150 with gasoline and diesel power plants will also be unveiled and are reportedly receiving important updates. According to representatives of the American brand, the 5.0-liter Coyote V8 engine will be discontinued – a new, slightly smaller 4.8-liter unit will come in its place. The latter will work with a 10-speed automatic transmission.

The new motor has no name yet, but its performance is already known. While the Coyote is capable of delivering 395 horsepower and 542 Nm of torque, the new naturally aspirated unit is rumored to be able to boast 420 hp. (569 Nm).

It is reported that the 4.8-liter V8 is more economical than the 5.0-liter unit, whose consumption is 10.22 liters on the highway, 13.83 liters in the city, and 12.38 liters in the combined cycle – the figures are valid for the rear-wheel drive F-150 . These improved energy and fuel economy metrics may convince customers to end up with a more voluminous engine.
