    2021 F150 Clocks 0-60 in 5.3 Seconds in PowerBoost Hybrid Trim


    Sandwiching a 44-hp, 221-lb-ft electric motor in between the 394-hp, 492-lb-ft 3.5-liter twin-turbo V-6 EcoBoost engine and the 10-speed automatic transmission boosts total output to 430 horses and 570 lb-ft. For reference, the outgoing Raptor made 20 more horses but 60 fewer lb-ft of torque. That makes this the torquiest F-Series this side of a Super Duty Power Stroke diesel.


    It zips to 60 mph in 5.3 seconds on the way to a 13.8-second, 102.1-mph quarter-mile run. It's worth noting that Sport mode returned the best results as it engages the auto-4WD function. Runs in normal rear-wheel-drive mode with traction control off generated too much wheelspin, and attempts to manually shift closer to redline also slowed the truck down (power peaks at 6,000 rpm, and there's little need to rev higher).

    That is going to shock a lot of would be fast cars, especially since it’s not the Raptor.
    If you are dodge Ford or Chevy Pony car with a V6, this thing can surprise you

    These hybrid systems are probably the best systems for the trucks to improve fuel economy and increase performance. I wish GM wouldn't have dumped their development and stuck with it longer. It would have been cheaper and better by now.

    There is nothing stopping them from dusting off their two mode system and improving it, especially with all the knowledge from voltec and electrics..

    They can do lots to bring the a game to their truck portfolio

    Wow - that's fast for a brick on wheels! And this is probably part of why the sporty car market is dying. Why get a single purpose and often cramped/small sporty car when you can get something that's huge,fast, can haul stuff, etc.?

    Wait, fuel economy and performance. I guess you can have both. Well done Ford.

    Also some promising quotes from Autoblog.

    https://www.autoblog.com/2020/11/19/...0-first-drive/

    “We won’t mince words: The 2021 F-150 PowerBoost is the most impressive everyday pickup we've sampled, perhaps ever (putting extreme Raptors and Power Wagons aside). Despite making use of what is now fairly proven and conventional hybrid technology, the PowerBoost doesn’t make its hybridness obvious. There’s no awkward braking transition between regenerative and hydraulic operation; no fussy CVT or planetary gearbox producing undesirable vibration or pegging the revs in the stratosphere under hard acceleration. It just drives like a truck – a powerful truck."

    “By comparison, the 5.0-liter V8 feels like a dog. It’s far less responsive, to the point that it’s noticeable in around-town driving. Mash the accelerator and the Coyote will wake up, but it takes a lot more conscious prodding to get the 5.0 to behave anything like the hybrid, which requires no thought at all."

    I can see that. The hybrid engine fills the gap before the turbo kicks in and "fixes" turbo lag gap.

    Quick shifting 10speed, and when the electric runs out of steam, the V6 is in its element.. it’s like a race on El Toro between a ZL1 and a Model S, in one vehicle...

    When the ZL1 is passing the Model S, the model S is at about 131 MPH, the ZL1 is at 186 MPH and still pulling... man.. all glory to the small block...imagine a voltec supercharged Escalade.. take of like the Model S, then keeps pulling to 200 plus MPH in an ESV....

    That would be mother in a hurry
