Gov’t Reveals Ford F-150 Hybrid Fuel Economy Figures

Hybrid F-150 delivers V8-beating fuel economy

  • 9.8 L/100 combined for electrified F-Series

  • Tops in in-town fuel economy


Ford‘s 2021 F-150 hybrid fuel economy numbers are out, and while the gas and electric pickup may be able to power up to 28 refrigerators, it’s not enough to give the electrified pickup the best fuel economy out of all of the full-sizers. It’s not even enough to make it the best Ford F-150 for sipping fuel.

Maybe that’s not a surprise, since the hybrid turns the F-150 PowerBoost into a 430 hp and 570 lb-ft pickup. It does manage to take the top spot for gas-powered pickups, and that’s still an impressive feat.

The numbers were released by Natural Resources Canada (spotted by Ford Authority), giving the Ford F-150 Hybrid 4×4 an official rating of 9.8 L/100 km city, 9.7 highway, and 9.8 combined.

How does that stack up? Well, in town, it handily beats the next-closest competitors, all of which use diesel power. The Chevrolet Silverado (and GMC Sierra) two-wheel-drive manages 10.2 in the city (10.4 for 4×4), the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel 10.5 (11.1 for 4×4) and the F-150 Powerstroke 11.1/11.3. Closest gas competition is the V6-powered Ram 1500 eTorque with 11.6.

On the highway, the diesels pull ahead of the hybrid significantly. Silverado/Sierra 4×2 is rated for 7.2 L/100 km with the Ram just behind at 7.3 and the Ford at 8.3. Adding 4×4 raises those numbers to 8.0 for Ram and the GM twins and 8.5 for F-150 diesel. Against other gas trucks, the PowerBoost’s 9.7 puts it ahead of any V8 trucks, but only by a few 10ths of a litre per 100 km.

If you’re spending most of your time on the open highway, a diesel might make a better choice, but if you’re in town and on the job site, the F-150 PowerBoost hybrid’s figures give it the fuel-sipping edge. The hybrid also doesn’t require diesel fuel or exhaust fluid replenishments.
