Can a Ford F-150 with a Hybrid Powertrain Still be Built Ford Tough?By Product Expert | Posted in Ford F-150 on Thursday, October 15th, 2020 at 9:05 am
2021 Ford F-150 Hybrid Put Through the Wringer to Be Built Ford Tough
When Ford first announced that they were adding a hybrid powertrain option to the 2021 Ford F-150 lineup, a lot of people were skeptical. Not us, however. We don’t say that to brag, we just mean that we live and breath Ford trucks so we know that when Ford sets out to do something different, they’re going to make sure that endeavor includes best-in-class power and best-in-class capability. And that’s exactly what happened with the 2021 Ford F-150 Hybrid, as it and its hybrid powertrain are just as powerful and just as capable as its gas-powered F-150 siblings. But how did Ford make a hybrid powertrain that tough? Well, simply put, the 2021 Ford F-150 Hybrid has been put through the wringer to be Built Ford Tough – and we’re going to tell you exactly what that means right here.

How Did Ford Ensure the 2021 F-150 Hybrid Would Be Just As Powerful and Capable as the Rest of the Lineup?
As you surely know by now – especially if you’ve been following along with our Brandon Ford Blog – the 2021 Ford F-150 Hybrid is powered by an all-new 3.5-liter PowerBoost fully hybrid powertrain. And after months of rigorous tests, Ford found there was nothing that could stop this impressive new powertrain.
“Just because it’s a hybrid doesn’t mean we treated PowerBoost with kid gloves. To earn Built Ford Tough certification, PowerBoost went through the torture testing we put all of our powertrains through. No F-150 powertrain gets a pass, we have one standard for quality and durability.”Craig Schmatz, F-150 Chief Engineer
