Good video showing a Carbonized Gray 2021 F-150 PowerBoost Hybrid exterior, interior and undercarriage.




Also, if you missed it from June, here's an official video of a Platinum PowerBoost.

Isn't it a bit odd that Ford still hasn't published official power / efficiency numbers (and towing) for the Powerboost drivetrain? I mean the factory starts building these rigs in about two months - unless they turn around and announce that Powerboost'd builds are delayed like the diesel. I sure hope not.

Also, that banner about expecting 12,000 lbs towing caught my eye! Of course that's not with the 4x4 undoubtedly.

They sometimes wait to the last minute to publish those specifications, I’m assuming to hide it from the competition.
It says at least 12k lbs for towing. It also says they also expect it to have best in class towing (the F150 in general) which would require them to be at least close to 14k lbs.
The 2020 F150 4x2 with 3.5 eco boost is over 13k lbs already for max towing.

Curious.. what's the 2020 3.5-eco 4x4 towing capacity as a baseline?

Very neat and I'm very interested in the PowerBoost.

Also curious how tow #s look as this is 1st year max tow available with 5.0L. (And diesel too I think) how will 3.5L EB max # vs 5.0L #. Diesel obviously much lower.
