Choosing the best truck for your Sevierville lifestyle can be daunting. With so many choices out there, how can you be sure which one is right for your needs? That being said, we're sure that the Ford F-150 would be the perfect match, but which model year you should get depends on your needs.

Should you splurge on the updated Ford F-150 or stick with the 2020 Ford F-150? Let's find out!


Performance is an important part of deciding which truck you want to buy. No matter which of these two trucks you decide to purchase, you'll get to choose between many different engine options to accommodate your vocational or recreational needs.

Ford F-150

Starting with the newest model year Ford F-150, the 2021 model is clearly built to be high-performing. Here's a look at the available engines you can have installed in a Ford F-150:

  • NEW 3.5-Liter PowerBoost Full Hybrid V6
  • 3.0-Liter Power Stroke Turbo Diesel
  • 3.5-Liter EcoBoost V6
  • 5.0-Liter TI-VCT V8
  • 2.7-Liter EcoBoost V6
  • 3.3-Liter TI-VCT V6

With the most powerful engine available for the 2021 Ford F-150 (the 3.5-Liter PowerBoost Full Hybrid V6), you'll be able to take advantage of 430 horsepower, 570 pound-feet of torque, and an impressive maximum towing capacity of 12,700 pounds.

2020 Ford F-150

Let's now pivot to the engine options available in the previous model year's Ford F-150. The 2020 Ford F-150 comes with a few of the same engine options as the newest model year, but some other them are different. Here's a look:

  • 3.5-Liter EcoBoost
  • 3.0-Liter Power Stroke Turbo Diesel
  • High-Output 3.5-Liter EcoBoost
  • 2.7-Liter Turbocharged EcoBoost
  • 5.0-Liter TI-VCT V8
  • 3.30Liter TI-VCT V6

With the most powerful engine available for the 2020 Ford F-150 (High-Output 3.5-Liter EcoBoost), you'll be able to generate an incredible 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque.


When it comes to tech, there's some pretty impressive options in both model year Ford F-150s. Let's start with the safety features.

Safety Features

In both the 2020 and 2021 Ford F-150's base models - the XL trim - you'll find some great safety features that will keep you and your passengers safe. This includes the following:

  • Safety Canopy Side Curtains
  • Driver and passenger front airbags
  • Driver and passenger side airbags
  • Curve Control
  • Safety belts with Active Restraint System
  • Four-Wheel ABS
  • AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System

In addition to these great safety features found in both the 2020 and 2021 Ford F-150 models, the older 2020 model actually comes equipped with a safety feature that was not included in the newest model. The 2020 Ford F-150 comes with the Rear View Camera with Dynamic Hitch Assist. This function will allow you to view what you're hitching to make it much easier for hooking up and transporting.

Interior Tech

As far as entertainment and connectivity technology goes, these two models are fairly the same, though they have a few differences. The Ford F-150 was clearly meant to provide comfort and conevenience to their Knoxville drivers. With an upgraded 4.2-inch productivity screen, the 2021 Ford F-150 is a bit better for the tech-savvy driver in your life.

Our Verdict

Overall, the 2021 Ford F-150 and the 2020 Ford F-150 serve similar-yet-different purposes. That is, both of them are built to be powerful, tough trucks capable of towing and hauling some seriously heavy loads, yet they will most likely be used for different purposes.

If you're looking to use this truck for work purposes, it might be better to go with the more powerful yet slightly less modern 2020 Ford F-150, since it has greater horsepower and will be less expensive for your business. The 2021 Ford F-150 would be well-suited for recreational desires, such as taking your Maryville family's boat to the lake.

Both of these Ford trucks can perform either recreational and vocational duties, but they clearly have their preferences. To take a look at these trucks and determine which one would be best for your Pigeon Forge lifestyle, come to our dealership in Sevierville!
