Ford F-150 Hybrid Tampa FL
Hybrid drivetrains were a niche technology at first, but now companies like Ford are starting to see all the benefits that hybrid power can provide. With similar technology being employed in supercars already, smart hybrid technology can use two engine types alongside each other to make up for each engine’s shortcomings. For this reason, Ford has decided to push hybrid technology further than ever before by offering it in a Ford Mustang, and even a Ford F-150. The hybrid truck is going to be available by 2020, and you can bet that Brandon Ford will be one of the first to have a Ford F-150 Hybrid in Tampa, FL.

Why should Ford put a hybrid in a truck of all places? Because that electric motor can provide a huge amount of torque even at low end. The hybrid drivetrain is ideal for towing which is one of the primary reasons people turn to F-150 in the first place. Expect this hybrid to have the towing capacity you need.
The Ford F-150 Hybrid is expected to take advantage of the aluminum construction already employed across the entire F-150 and even the Super Duty lineup. The hybrid drivetrain coupled with the lightweight construction means that the Ford F-150 hybrid could be the most efficient F-150 ever.
By using its gas engine in conjunction with its electric drivetrain, the F-150 Hybrid can keep working even when it’s parked. By efficiently burning fuel and turning the electric motor, the F-150 Hybrid can generate electricity and power your job site. That’s a whole new level of utility.
