Hybrid Ford F-150 Coming Soon?

Wednesday, September 10th 2014. | 2015 Ford F-150, 2016 Ford F-150

Today I was surfing the internet and came upon on article on Jalopnik’s Truckyeah! and found that Ford had posted a job for a RWD Hybrid Systems Engineer. This alone doesn’t mean a whole lot. But Ford’s own Mike Levine, formerly of pickuptrucks.com chimed in with the following “Ford has already said it’s moving forward developing a RWD hybrid system for Ford pickups and SUVs”, pointing out an article on Ford’s website. This article, written in July of 2013, had a quick blurb about the conclusion of their partnership with Toyota and that they are now moving forward on their own with the development of hybrid trucks and SUV’s.

With the weight shedding the F-150 has undergone for 2015 I imagine it is a prime candidate for a hybrid drivetrain. With this news being well over a year old, perhaps we’ll see a hybrid truck in the next few years. It’d be especially exciting for certain customers as a potential for dramatic reductions in their fuel costs, especially if it’ll have an all-electric and/or plugin option. At this point it is of course all speculation, but the possibilities are exciting. Hopefully we’ll hear more on this subject soon.
