Ford is also launching an electric F-150 sometime in 2020. If gas prices rise in most of the US above $4 per gallon (they already are at that level in California), then a regular hybrid version could sell fairly well – especially if priced below the turbodiesel powertrain option. The hybrid could be attractive to fleet owners who are focused on the total cost of ownership and construction companies will like the ability of the hybrid to function as a mobile generator at a job site.
There could be an all-new V8 engine under the hood. Ford has a new F-150 on deck for 2021, and the crew at TFLnow on YouTube caught a prototype doing some heavy mountain testing in Colorado. The spy video is short, but the camera passes slowly by the trailer-towing test vehicle. It’s certainly the closest look we’ve had of the next-gen Ford, though admittedly the camouflage is still rather heavy.

Ford describes the towing stunt as a one-time short event demonstration” and claims it is far beyond any production truck’s published capacity.” Right now, Tesla holds the record for pulling the heaviest load, when a Model X towed a 287,000-pound Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner nearly 1,000 feet on a taxiway at the Melbourne Airport in Australia last year. It’s necessary since 400 miles of range, fast-charging capabilities, and available auxiliary battery packs to top off the R1T are effective, but may not be enough. But in an interview with The Drive, Rivian CEO RJ Scaringe revealed that his company’s vehicles will also have another layer of range insurance coming from an ability to share power with each other through vehicle-to-vehicle charging technology.
The Ford F-150 has become a staple vehicle in America and somewhat of an institution in the US. Usually, these huge vehicles are powered by similarly monstrous 3.0 or 5.0-liter petrol or diesel engines. There is seemingly going to be a huge shift in the future of F-150 which will see an all-electric variant offered within the next few years. Rumour has it the vehicle will be offered with an electric powertrain in future as well as a hybrid engine in its next generation.
