2022 Ford E-Transit Pro Power Onboard: How Does It Compare To F-150?

When the 2021 Ford F-150 was revealed earlier this year, one of the all-new truck’s most innovative features was its Pro Power Onboard portable generator. Ford’s Pro Power Onboard system is capable of bringing generator levels of portable energy to a variety of suitable situations, including everything from campsites to job sites. Now, following its reveal this week, we learned that the 2022 Ford E-Transit Pro Power Onboard system will work in a very similar manner to the new Ford F-150.

However, the 2022 Ford E-Transit Pro Power Onboard system’s capabilities aren’t quite identical to what is offered in the 2021 F-150. For starters, only one option is available on the all-electric Ford Transit, which provides up to 2.4 kilowatts of power.

Meanwhile, the 2021 F-150’s Pro Power Onboard system is available with a 2.0-kilowatt output on optional gas engines, while 3.5L PowerBoost V6 hybrid-equipped F-150 models come standard with 2.4 kilowatts of output or an optional 7.2 kilowatts of output.

In the F-150, power is accessible through in-cabin outlets and up to four cargo bed-mounted 120-volt 20-amp outlets, with a 240-volt 30-amp outlet on the 7.2-kilowatt version. The E-Transit, on the other hand, has its outlets mounted inside the rear cargo area on the passenger sidewall.

With either vehicle, owners are able to control Pro Power Onboard using their smartphones via the FordPass app. On the F-150, the 2.4-kilowatt system is capable of running for 85 hours on a full tank of fuel, while the 7.2-kilowatt system can go for 32 hours on a full tank.

Ford has not yet released any additional specifications for the E-Transit Pro Power Onboard system, so it’s unclear how long it can run on battery power alone. Regardless, the mere presence of this feature promises to make the all-electric Transit even more appealing to commercial customers.

We’ll have more on the E-Transit very soon, so be sure and subscribe to Ford Authority for more Ford Transit news and ongoing Ford news coverage.

    Since the vast majority of contractors will use High Starting Current motor operated appliances, the big question with alternate power schemes is will they do what the contractors want when they want it?

    There are many inverters or generators that cannot even run a 12 amp (1400 watt) circular saw since they cannot START it. It would be interesting to see what the PEAK limitation is of these products, and then see if it actually can work in practice.

    Can the new Bronco Sport be flat towed behind a RV?
    This capability could increase market potential.

    A Transit with Powerboost and 25 mpg and 12,000 tow and a cavernous rear that can haul a troop of a dozen workers RoOR with seats removed or folded flat a bunk of lumber, 10 ft sheeting and conduit, and a large array of contractor equipment totally out of the weather and locked safe from vandals and thieves. Oh, and how about 7.2 kw Power option to run any and all contractor equipment he can haul to the job.

    I would love to see a Powerboost option with 7.2 kw Pro Power Onboard for the Transit. This would be a very versatile vehicle.
