We’ve been learning more and more about the 2021 Ford F-150 PowerBoost hybrid in recent weeks, but one figure that everyone wants to hear about is its fuel economy. And now, Ford Authority has learned the 2021 Ford F-150 hybrid fuel economy ratings, albeit its Canadian figures, obtained by Natural Resources Canada.
There, 2021 Ford F-150 hybrid fuel economy is officially rated at 24 miles-per-gallon in the city and 24 miles-per-gallon on the highway, for a combined rating of 24 mpg. It’s important to note that U.S. EPA ratings could be different. Regardless, these numbers give the F-150 PowerBoost a yearly fuel expenditure of $2,450, while CO2 emissions come in at 229 g/km. Ford has previously said that the PowerBoost will travel up to 700 miles on a tank of gas.
The new-for-2021 F-150 hybrid is also the most powerful in the 2021 lineup, as Ford’s 3.5L PowerBoost V6 produces 430 horsepower and 570 pound-feet of torque – the most torque ever in an F-150. That’s enough to edge out its non-hybrid counterpart, Ford’s 3.5L EcoBoost V6, which is now rated at 400 horsepower and 500 pound-feet of torque.
Despite its power advantage, the Ford F-150 PowerBoost carries lower payload and towing capacity ratings than the non-hybrid 3.5L EcoBoost powerplant. The PowerBoost comes with a max payload rating of 2,120 pounds, while the EcoBoost can carry up to 3,250 pounds. In terms of towing, the EcoBoost is rated at a maximum of 14,000 pounds, while the PowerBoost will pull up to 12,700 pounds.
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 PowerBoost is an extra-cost option on all 2021 Ford F-150 models, but the price depends on the trim level. Adding PowerBoost to the XL and XLT trims adds $4,500 to the MSRP, $3,300 for the Lariat, $2,500 to the King Ranch and Platinum trims, and $1,900 for the Limited trim.
