Ford is still one of the best truck makers in the world. It offers an impressive lineup of trucks, from the F-150 model to the Super Duty lineup and mid-size Ranger. One of the models that will raise the bar is the upcoming 2022 Ford F-150 Hybrid. Indeed, Ram now offers its impressive Rebel TRX variant. However, the F-150 hybrid is for those who are looking for fuel efficiency while the performances are still good.
It is a model to look after in the future and it will be hard to take it down. Indeed, Ram 1500 is also available with the hybrid setup. However Blue Oval won’t offer major updates, which is very interesting as the competition is stronger than ever. Anyway, Ford is one step ahead, and here’s everything you need to know about this model.
2022 F-150 Hybrid Specs
The 2022 Ford F-150 Hybrid is getting the power from the 3.5-liter V6 gasoline engine. It is the “PowerBoost” system that also comes with the twin-turbo configuration. The focus is on fuel efficiency and the F-150 Hybrid will deliver 26 mpg in the city. For an instance, a diesel engine currently provides 23 mpg combined.
The AWD system is optional and it will slightly lower the fuel economy ratings. The output is not officially confirmed but this pickup will generate 430 horsepower and 570 lb-ft of torque. The Raptor variant generates 450 hp and 510 lb-ft of torque, so F-150 Hybrid is more than a powerful pickup truck.
Again, Blue Oval is yet to announce exact powertrain specs. However, we already know some performance figures. Of course, we are counting on further improvements. The 2022 Ford F-150 Hybrid borrows the same setup from the Explorer Hybrid SUV. This SUV can tow up to 5,000 pounds with the class three towing package. As for the F-150 pickup, it will tow more.
From what we know, the entry-level model will be able to tow around 5,000 pounds. However, the best-possible variant will offer a towing capacity that is rated at 13,200 pounds. The next model will be able to tow a little more, according to various reports. Generally, the hybrid pickup comes with better fuel economy but it also sacrifices towing power.
2022 Ford F-150 Hybrid Release Date, Price
The forthcoming 2022 Ford F-150 Hybrid should hit the markets by the end of 2021. However, the Coronavirus is still present so this pickup truck could arrive in the first quarter of 2022. Shortly after that, Blue Oval will also introduce the F-150 Electric model. If you are looking for an efficient and modern pickup, F-150 Hybrid is the answer as it offers around 23% better fuel economy than the regular model.
The price will start at around $42,000 and this pickup can be had in the crew cab configuration exclusively. The price is slightly increased, due to the latest changes. However, the interior will introduce minor updates, as the 2021MY delivered more major upgrades.
