Green Car Journal has named the 2021 F-150 their Green Truck of the Year! It won primarily for the PowerBoost hybrid engine.


This year’s Green Truck of the Year finalists embody all the workhorse capabilities expected of a modern pickup while offering passenger car-like comfort, advanced on-board electronics, and levels of fuel efficiency unheard of in pickups of just a decade ago. Pickups honored as finalists for Green Truck of the Year are the Chevrolet Colorado, Chevrolet Silverado, Ford F-150, Jeep Gladiator EcoDiesel, and RAM 1500. All offer diverse powertrain choices, from gasoline and diesel internal combustion to variations of mild- and full-hybrid power.

Powering its way to well-deserved recognition as 2021 Green Truck of the Year is the Ford F-150, a pickup long distinguished as the best-selling model in the nation and a champion of innovation. Beyond its wide array of configurations, powertrain choices, payload capacities, and towing capabilities, it now adds such innovations as an efficient PowerBoost hybrid powerplant, fold-flat ‘sleeper’ seats, and an available Pro Power Onboard output system with outlets that allow the truck to function as a mobile generator at worksites or campsites.

I wonder if PowerBoost won't rank as high as more hybrid trucks come to market. GM and FCA have plans to rival the Hybrid F-150 and have been seeing success with other hybrid vehicles they sell.

That will be interesting to see. I haven't heard a lot yet about a Ram or Silverado hybrid though. Ford has the advantage of being the first out the gate.
