$100k hybrid!

No Plug-in which still boggles my mind. Plenty of room for a small battery pack under this truck.

If its like the F250/F350, they won't change the body much and just interior and drivetrain upgrades.

"All-New"





let's hope.
So I've been hearing more than a few rumblings this is more of an evolution than a revolution. They focused on interior and tech and not so much exterior and most drivetrains (aside from the Hybrid and full electric)

I've been saying for years that if one of the major manufacturer's can come up with full size half ton truck with a small battery that'll give like 30-40 miles of electric only range alongside a nice beefy V-8 that it would capture my interest. So much of my gas is wasted in stop and go traffic in which a battery would be great for. Then, when the battery runs out you have the V-8 for everything else, like road trips, towing/hauling, etc. Or if the battery is charged then a nice power boost from the electric motor.

Yeah, a mid-cycle refresh with a facelift and some new interior bits...Ford maybe hit the hype train a BIT too hard...

I'm curious about the generator from the hybrid though...did we decide that the generator wouldn't be on the regular gassers?

Sounds like it'll just use the hybrid batteries as a power station, which could be cool, depending on how many kW the battery pack is, and how many watts it'll handle.

Yeah, my dad's '16 F150 (dad150........................................:s00ls: ) rides actually fairly comfortably, but you can definitely feel the rear axle bouncing around on bigger bumps. I'm hoping with the IRS, it'll give it much better control for most driving (still not ideal for towing, but how many F150 owners actually tow enough weight to make IRS v SRA an issue?)

Plus lowering your 4wd IRS F150 should be WAY easier. No fucking with/worrying about driveshaft angles

When I dropped mine it helped with the bouncy ride feeling, but it’s night and day more comfortable to drive then an f250 or f350

Anything with a solid axel in the front straight poo, probably doesn’t help the recommended tire inflation is like 70psi for the load range once you have a load on it it rides decent

I thought my 2013 f150 rode great. But, I'm used to a f350 that I don't think rides bad either.

Yeah our old work 250's were kidney jarringly bad. The 150's are soooooooo much nicer. Just need to figure out how to stop the rear axle from bouncing

go drive a silverAAAADoe or air suspension ram...

also. 2013 f150's weren't aluminum yet right? i think the lighter trucks is the main issue.
