The 2021 F-150 was engineered for work and play, and nowhere is this more apparent than with the debut of the PowerBoost full hybrid equipped F-150 pickup.
The first pickup in its segment to come with the option of a full hybrid powertrain, F-150 PowerBoost seamlessly marries Ford’s 3.5-litre V6 EcoBoost® engine to a 44-horsepower (33-kilowatt) electric motor to develop a combined 430 horsepower and 772 Nm of torque1.
It’s this Raptor-rivalling2 level of torque that really gives owners the pulling power to haul cargo and tow loads wherever they need to go. With a maximum 5,760kg towing capability3 and 961kg4 cargo payload, owners can pack everything they need for a remote exploration on weekends, or jobsite work during the week.
The PowerBoost engine also delivers a perfect balance of power and efficiency. The 4x4 PowerBoost has an EPA-estimated 9.8l/100km combined fuel economy rating, which is best among 4x4 petrol-powered light-duty full-size pickups. The 4x4 PowerBoost-equipped truck has an EPA-estimated range of over 1,100 kilometres on a single tank of fuel5.
Built to offer more capability when in remote locations, every PowerBoost F-150 also comes equipped with Pro Power Onboard as standard. Pro Power Onboard operates when the vehicle is parked or in motion, which means you can charge items while you’re driving to your camp or worksite.
With 2.3 kilowatts of exportable power on tap at outlets in the cabin and cargo box, owners have electricity available to them everywhere they go. And, once they reach their destination, they can tap into the power outlets in the truck bed to get started on a project, or set up the ultimate campsite.
The PowerBoost hybrid powertrain is available on XL, XLT, Lariat, Platinum and Limited models and is just one of four engine choices available to F-150 owners.
The all-new F-150 features decades of innovation – from its high-strength, military-grade, aluminium alloy body atop a high-strength steel frame, to revolutionary EcoBoost® technology. F-150 is the only light-duty full-size pickup that comes standard with a 10-speed automatic transmission across all engine offerings.
