45Ford 'working very hard' on F-150 hybrid

The lighter, aluminum-bodied 2015 Ford F-150 gets (at best) 26 miles per gallon. That's not bad for a truck that size – and we should always remember that improving gas guzzlers can make a big difference – but what if the popular truck came with a gas-electric hybrid powertrain?

Is the Prius V not big enough for you? Then you'll probably be interested to learn that Ford and Toyota announced a new partnership today to develop a new hybrid system for SUVs and light trucks.
