2021 Ford F-150 PowerBoost Fuel Economy Figures Confirmed For U.S.

Way back in October, we reported that National Resources Canada had confirmed 2021 Ford F-150 PowerBoost fuel economy ratings in the country, which came in at 24 miles-per-gallon in the city and 24 miles-per-gallon on the highway, for a combined rating of 24 mpg. Now, some time later, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has released its fuel economy ratings for the first-ever hybrid Ford F-150 pickup, and they’re even better.

The two-wheel-drive 2021 F-150 PowerBoost is rated to return 25 miles-per-gallon in the city and 26 miles-per-gallon on the highway for a combined rating of 25 mpg. That gives the PowerBoost-equipped F-150 the best combined fuel economy rating among all gas-powered full-size light-duty pickups on sale today.

Those opting for the four-wheel-drive model won’t lose too much in terms of economy, either. The 4×4 2021 Ford F-150 PowerBoost fuel economy ratings come in at 24 miles-per-gallon city and 24 mpg on the highway, for a combined rating of 24 mpg. The RWD version of the hybrid pickup has an EPA-estimated range of 750 miles on a single tank of gas, while the 4×4 version is rated to travel 700 miles before refueling is required.

As well as being the most fuel-efficient, the hybrid is also the most powerful in Ford’s 2021 F-150 lineup, as its 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.

The Ford F-150 PowerBoost does offer lower payload and towing capacity ratings than the non-hybrid 3.5L EcoBoost powerplant, however. 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.

Brett's lost track of all the Fords he's owned over the years and how much he's spent modifying them, but his current money pits include an S550 Mustang and 13th gen F-150.
