New Ford F-150 PowerBoost Hybrid Powerful And Delivers Best MPG

With power, efficiency, and affordable, the PowerBoost hybrid option for the new Ford F-150 should be popular


  • The F-150 PowerBoost has an EPA rating of 24 mpg.

  • It produces a whopping 430 horsepower and 570 lb.-ft. of torque.

  • The hybrid F-150 is the most fuel-efficient full-size truck.


As the auto industry evolves and becomes increasingly electrified, all segments are gaining benefits, some quite impressive. With the all-new 2021 F-150, Ford introduced their PowerBoost hybrid technology, and power it has with 570 lb.-ft. of torque. Now, we know how much, or how little fuel it will consume.

According to the EPA, the 2021 Ford F-150 with PowerBoost delivers an estimated 24 mpg city and 24 mpg highway for a predictable 24 mpg in combined driving. This figure bests all other full-size petrol pickups available on the market. In fact, it matches the 2020 F-150 Power Stroke diesel combined rating as well. We know the 2021 F-150’s Power Stroke will be a carry-over so we assume the rating will be identical – so far, the EPA has not released these numbers.

Although Ford’s numbers are impressive, it’s important to note that the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Duramax diesel (27 mpg) and the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel (26 mpg) are more efficient, based on Motor Trend’s research.

Official Canadian data from Natural Resources Canada are not out yet. As a matter of comparison, the 2020 F-150 Power Stroke diesel returned a combined 9.8L/100km. We then assume the PowerBoost will get the same rating.

For the savings a power, the costs to upgrade to the PowerBoost hybrid powertrain will run between $4,495 and $2,500.
