Ford F-150 PowerBoost Hybrid Pricing Goes Live
Ford’s build-and-price tool can now be wielded against the next-generation F-150 pickup, revealing that going hybrid will vary wildly in price, depending on where you start.
While a report last month detailed expected pricing, now it’s official. The cost of adding hybrid power to your 2021 F-150 sinks as your truck’s standard power output rises.
Not yet rated, Ford claims the 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6/electric motor combo gives PowerBoost-equipped F-150s class-leading horsepower and torque. The unit’s mated to a 10-speed automatic, with the 47-horse electric motor lessening the need for the gas engine to do all the heavy lifting.
Fuel economy is still unknown.
That said, pricing is here. While the 2021 F-150’s B&P tool is still young and wonky, it does reveal that the earlier report was correct. The base price of a ’21 F-150 (XL 4×2 regular cab, 6.5-foot box) is indeed $30,365 after destination, a $190 bump from the year before, but you won’t be able to get the PowerBoost on the absolute bargain basement model. That could change with time.
For now, it seems the cheapest hybrid is the XL 4×2 regular cab with 8-foot box, stickering for $38,495. We can also see that the PowerBoost option appears on the XL SuperCrew with 6.5-foot box costing $3,300, and in the XL SuperCrew 5.5-foot box costing $4,495. The difference between the two models? Engine size. The former carries a 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6, the latter a 3.3-liter V6. The smaller the initial engine output, the pricier it’ll be to get into a hybrid.
Case in point: On the King Ranch, which carries a 5.0-liter V8 as standard equipment, the PowerBoost option amounts to $2,500. On the top-flight Limited trim (3.5L EcoBoost standard), it’s a mere $1,900 ask.
As the truck draws nearer to its fall production date, additional configurations should arise (right now, the B&P tool shows no hybrid availability for Lariat trim, despite Ford saying otherwise elsewhere on the site, and XLT configurations seem to still be under construction). Stay tuned.
