The Ford F-150 gets a major overhaul for the 2021 model year, consisting of an all-new exterior, interior, and all kinds of convenience features. Another noteworthy novelty is a full-hybrid V6 powertrain option called PowerBoost. We’ve known some prices for the 2021 F-150 for some time now, but we didn’t know how much the F-150 PowerBoost hybrid option would cost on the all-new truck, until now.
FoMoCo recently launched an early configurator tool for the 2021 F-150, which offers the ability to select the hybrid powertrain and see its price.
The 3.5L PowerBoost option can be added to any trim level of the 2021 Ford F-150, so long as it’s a SuperCrew cab – the large, four-door cab offered by Ford.
The PowerBoost is an extra-cost option on all 2021 Ford F-150 models, but the price depends on the trim level. For instance, opting for PowerBoost on the XL and XLT trims adds $4,500 to the MSRP, while adding $3,300 to the Lariat, $2,500 on the King Ranch and Platinum trims, and $1,900 for the Limited trim.
On average, the 2021 F-150 PowerBoost option carries a cost of $3,198.
|2021 F-150 Base Price||2021 F-150 with PowerBoost||PowerBoost Cost|
|King Ranch (SuperCrew)||$58,025||$60,525||$2,500|
- Prices include $1,695 destination charge
The Blue Oval claims that the 2021 F-150 PowerBoost can deliver a range of up to 700 miles on a single tank and towing capacity of at least 12,000 pounds. The system combines the power of the Ford 3.5L EcoBoost V6 gasoline engine with an electric motor rated at 47 horsepower (35kW). Interestingly, Ford has yet to announce exact power and torque figures for the PowerBoost setup, but we expect to have those soon.
We’ll have much more on the all-new, 2021 Ford F-150 very soon, so be sure to subscribe to Ford Authority for the latest Ford F-Series news, Ford F-150 news, and ongoing Ford news coverage.
What size is the gas tank?
A 47 HP electric motor isn’t that powerful. That seems more like a power assist than a true hybrid which should be able to eliminate idling as long as the battery has a charge, or to cruise at a constant speed on true electric power.
What will the payload be with that extra weight?
I agree, 47 hp doesn’t seem enough to me either. But I’m no enginner.
47 hp doesn’t seem like alot until you acknowledge the 221-lb-ft of torque….
Hopefully this powerboost option will be available on regular cabs in the future.
This would greatly assist one of a commercial fleets biggest costs: fuel.
Understandably this would require different architecture due to the overall frame length but one hopes the demand will interest Ford to make it so.
