The 3 Main Benefits Of Hybrid
Should I get the F-150 Lightning? Can the F-150 Lightning tow? What is the Hybrid F-150? You may have many questions if you’re in the midst of cross-shopping the F-150 Lightning with the F-150 paired to a hybrid engine. Each have their benefits and tradeoffs, so let us outline a few for the hybrid below.
One major benefit of choosing a hybrid F-150 over a fully gas-powered engine is the great increase in fuel economy. The F-150 equipped with the PowerBoost Hybrid engine gets an impressive 10.4L/ 100km but real-world testing has seen even better. This is huge for truck buyers looking to maximize their fuel mileage with a gas-powered engine while maintaining all the benefits of owning a powerful full-size pickup truck.
As you know, towing is generally an essential part of a truck owner’s life. Whether that’s a hitch for bicycles, or taking the boat to the lake, the F-150 always delivers. If towing is something you see yourself doing at any point in your ownership, the hybrid engine might be the best choice over going fully electric. While the F-150 Lightning is highly capable and powerful, the extended distances and fuel economy found in the hybrid version might come across as more appealing. As mentioned previously, the F-150 paired with the PowerBoost Hybrid can tow up to 12,700lb, which is 2,700lb more than the F-150 Lightning.
Utilize Electric Benefits
With the hybrid engine, your F-150 will share some of the exciting characteristics that the F-150 Lightning comes with, such as Pro Power Onboard, Zone Lighting, and electric-only driving. Going with the hybrid option allows you to get into your highly capable F-150 at a much lower upfront cost over choosing the fully electric Lightning while providing even more towing and range figures.
