24: The First True Hybrid F-140
Innovation is the key when it comes to the pickup truck market. There are many new contenders coming onto the market. Ford has offered hybrids before, but this generation is going to be the first true hybrid. The 3.5-liter, twin-turbo PowerBoost hybrid has a powerful tow rating of 12,000 lbs. This is quite impressive. The competition also offers hybrid models but these are generally mild hybrids.
The Powerboost Hybrid comes equipped with the new Ford 10-speed automatic transmission, which has been touted by Ford execs as being one of the best transmissions. With this kind of new technology, it’s easy to see how the new F-150 is going to own its position in the marketplace.
