Dearborn, Michigan – Ford’s 3.5L PowerBoost V6 hybrid powertrian has the best combined fuel economy rating for gas-powered full-size light-duty pickups with an EPA-estimated 25mpg on 4x2 models and 24mpg for the 4x4 – topping even the significantly less powerful diesel option.

The 4x2 PowerBoost, with EPA-estimated ratings of 25mpg city and 26mpg highway, has an EPA-estimated range of 750 miles on a single tank of gas.

“Our team spent months living with and observing truck customers at their homes, on job sites and on the weekends,” said Hau Thai-Tang, Ford chief product platform and operations officer. “Using electrification, we realized we could now give customers something they had long wanted but didn’t think was possible – tremendous power, great fuel economy, and all-new capabilities to make their F-150 even more productive.”

Delivering 430hp and 570 lb-ft of torque – the most torque ever for F-150 – the 4x2 PowerBoost truck is rated at a maximum 12,700 lb of conventional towing with Max Trailer Tow Package and a maximum payload of 2,120 lb.

Pro Power Onboard is standard on PowerBoost-equipped F-150 with 2.4kW of exportable power on tap at outlets in the cabin and cargo box. The optional 7.2kW output provides up to 18x more exportable power than the nearest competitor.
