Here's why the average 14th-Gen F-150 buyer will opt for the 3.5-liter Powerboost hybrid powertrain:

Ford has raised the bar and pushed the envelope when they advanced their six-cylinder Ecoboost technology. Of course this engine was and is, met with derision by some of the old-school “my truck must be a V8 crowd.” Truth be told there’s no swaying those folks.

And thankfully, Ford is still a V8 engine for the 14th generation F-150 to appeal to those buyers too. But the mating a hybrid powertrain with the ultra-powerful ultra-efficient Ecoboost stalwart seems like a win-win to me.

The all-new 3.5-liter PowerBoost full hybrid V6 powertrain is targeted to deliver the most torque and horsepower of any light-duty full-size pickup. And, even better, it’s available on every trim level of the 2021 F-150 from XL to Limited. This is the first full-size pickup to have a full hybrid system.

Showing that it’s no Prius, will deliver at least 12,000 pounds of available maximum towing. Additionally, PowerBoost combines Ford’s proven EcoBoost engine and 10-speed SelectShift® automatic transmission with a 35-kilowatt (47-horsepower) electric motor integrated into the transmission, as well as software calibrated specially for truck use, including drive modes like tow/haul mode to help customers better manage towing heavy trailers.
