PowerBoost hybrid will be available on all F-150 trims.
Option cost will start at $4,495 on base trims.
For models with the 3.5-litre EcoBoost V6 or 5.0-litre V8, the hybrid option is $2,500.
With no mandatory trims or engines to select, the PowerBoost hybrid engine could become a popular option on the new Ford F-150.
When Ford designed their all-new for 2021 F-150 pickup, they may have limited the exterior design team’s budget but in every other department, they were given but one goal: Give customers everything they want. One of these many things was a more powerful and efficient powerplant.
And Ford has delivered, at least on paper. The PowerBoost hybrid engine consists of an EcoBoost 3.5-litre V6, a 35-kilowatt (47 horsepower) electric motor integrated into the transmission, and a 1.5-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery. Ford has warned everyone that this powertrain will deliver the most torque and horsepower of any light-duty full-size pickup. Given the Ecoboost’s lowest current rating of 375 horsepower and 470 lb.-ft. of torque, we believe their words. And let’s not forget manage an EPA-estimated range of 1,100 km, or 700 miles.
To get it, a person opting for an F-150 with the 3.3-litre V6 will need to fork over $4,495 to get the hybrid. With the 2.7-litre EcoBoost V6, the premium will sit at $3,330. Finally, for an F-150 with the 3.5-litre EcoBoost V6 or 5.0-litre V8, the PowerBoost hybrid option will cost $2,500.
The 2021 Ford F-150 is planned for a fall 2020 arrival. If you’re curious about a fully electric F-150, Ford project that it will arrive in the next two years.
