  1. PowerBoosts - Poll --> How far can you get on just electric?

    There's a stretch of downhill on my regular drive that allows me to stay on battery for more than 2 miles, but on average I'd say that about one mile is the most I can expect from the battery before it's needs a charge. It helps to keep your speed down below 35 MPH and don't run the A/C. I've...
  2. Possible for truck to arrive with never updating further than In Production?

    Mine showed up with no warning at all. The dealership was surprised when it arrived. Never saw any tracking info on it - even AFTER I had it in my driveway.
  3. Pedestrian Alert System - Anyone else annoyed by it?

    Yesterday I had an experience that supports the need for this noise-making device. I was in my neighborhood, moving under electric power @ 20 MPH. As I approached an intersection, I saw a person standing near his car look up at me to see what the odd noise was. I saw him look at me, and thought...
  4. Hybrid Shifting Clunkiness from Reviewers?

    Yes this is correct - the same thing happens with the 5 speed trans in my 2007 Jeep WK. Most of the time I drive like I have a cakepan full of ice water in my lap, and it shifts very smoothly (glides into gear) but sometimes I flog the horses, and the shifting changes - gets sharper - and stays...
  5. Hybrid Shifting Clunkiness from Reviewers?

    My Lariat was built in May. I have 2200 miles on it now, no trailering thus far. This truck's transmission is actually smoother than any other truck I've driven. I do feel the hybrid mechanism engaging but it's not a big deal. All the other hybrid vehicles I've driven used CVT drivetrains so I...
  6. What grade fuel for PowerBoost?

    If you like Sport Mode, you'll like it more with high-octane fuel! And then your MPG's will drop (compared to Normal Mode) because your right foot will take charge
  7. Is it a Truck or a Bus or a Plane - Oops! We ran into some problems

    does not happen to me I use Firefox (89.01) on a Mac (10.13.6)
  8. Need some engine input

    Ok, but first, some back-story - I grew up on Ford V-8's. I've had great experience with them. I'm not a hater, by any means, but now I have a twin-turbo V6 with all the latest tech and I think my V-8 days are over. Also, I'm married now, and my wife really likes how quiet the truck can be. ;-}
  9. Getting a truck just got harder!

    just a thought - I ordered Stone Grey (the least popular color, I was told) and my truck arrived exactly ontime. It looks good, & gets plenty of compliments. I describe it as "dirt with a clear-coat" The manager at my dealership told me his own F-150 (don't remember the color) is 3 months...
  10. F-150 PowerBoost's Unique Reverse / Backup Alert Sound

    Today we had to take my wife's Subaru in for service. I made a circle around the dealership under electric power, with that leaf-blower sound emanating from my truck, and a lot of people turned to see where the sound was coming from. You could hear it all over the parking lot. I don't mind the...
  11. Sport mode 4x4 on dry pavement?

    You're right about not using 4Hi on pavement - that's also in the manual. I suspect that Sport mode for a truck w/o 4A is actually 2Hi rather than 4Hi. Sport mode in my Lariat defaults to 4A, but I can then select 2Hi, and it's still in Sport mode.
  12. Sport mode 4x4 on dry pavement?

    Not all models have it Selecting a Drive Mode Rotate the drive mode control on the center console to select or change a drive mode. Note: Button icons vary depending on the vehicle...
  13. Powerboost Exhaust, or 2021 3.5EB too?

    https://www.hotcars.com/watch-and-listen-first-f-150-powerboost-hybrid-pickup-with-a-black-widow-exhaust/ these guys put in some aftermarket exhaust stuff behind the "mystery box" the dude says he doesn't know exactly what the thing does, other than to suggest it is a "power management thingy"...
  14. Powerboost Exhaust, or 2021 3.5EB too?

    Don't know if it's PB only, but it appears to me as though it's part of the exhaust monitoring system - I see sensors, wire harnesses, and hard lines that lead up towards the engine bay...can't see anything that indicates it would be Powerboost specific, but I'm crawling around on my back in the...
  15. Is my vaccine microtracker causing this?

    You might have a bad connection between the LCD and the touchscreen controller. I've seen that distortion before in touchscreen devices that have been damaged (ex: water in cellphone). Time to go to the dealer......
  16. Code P0A1A Generator Control Module

    Some dealers suck. Some people suck. Some situations suck. I think I've been very lucky. My dealer doesn't suck, my truck doesn't suck, and my situation sucks only a very small amount (such that I feel guilty even *thinking* I have any real problems) Thanks to wayfarer556 for keeping the...
  17. Traded a 2021 xlt for a 2021 lariat

    Is that color "Guard"? Looks terrific...
  18. F-150 PowerBoost's Unique Reverse / Backup Alert Sound

    caution - the "speaker" is a required safety device, and disabling it can have unintended consequences: https://www.f150gen14.com/forum/threads/pedestrian-sounder-fault.4228/#post-66838 Raspberry Fields Forever
  19. PB F-150 lariat vs Cybertruck triple motor

    I believe the question is "F-150 vs Cybertruck...?" so it's not just about the Powerboost. For me it's easy - a full-electric truck is not going to work for me at this time. I want an American truck from an established builder, and I need a 7.2 KW generator, so I bought the Powerboost. I told...
