Yesterday, Ford offered up a buffet of information. Along with Bronco news, GT500 teasing and the announcement of Ford Co-Pilot360 driver assistance becoming standard across its entire lineup, Ford also reaffirmed its commitment to electrification. Specifically, the company announced an $11 billion investment in electrification, reiterating plans to introduce 13 new electrified vehicles around the world in the next five years.
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? How efficient would that be? We heard Ford talking about such a vehicle last year, and now we learn that Ford is still "working very hard" to make a F-150 hybrid happen.
