The Ford PowerBoost engine is the most powerful part of your new Ford F-150. The F-150 has been the most popular truck in America for decades because it is, simply put, the best one out there. Ford combines power and durability with an informed design philosophy that other automotive manufacturers lack. The company goes out into the world to gather feedback from drivers of the F-150, which is then incorporated into the new versions of the vehicle.

This article will take an in-depth look at the dynamic and powerful Ford PowerBoost powertrain. It pairs a powerful gasoline engine with a hybrid system to achieve both efficiency and strength. This review will help you decide what powertrain to select for your new Ford F-150 truck.

What Is the Ford PowerBoost Engine?

What Is the Ford PowerBoost Engine?

The Ford F-150 PowerBoost hybrid engine starts with a muscular twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6 engine called the EcoBoost. This engine is impressive in its own right, offering both the muscle of a V-6 and the added power of the twin-turbochargers. It is currently offered on the new Ford F-150 truck.

Ford does not stop with the titanic V-6, however. The design team added a hybrid electrical system to the V-6 in order to reach new heights of power. This hybrid configuration includes a 41-horsepower electric motor and a 1.5 kWh lithium-ion battery pack that work together to make the truck even stronger.

If you’re ready to drive a new vehicle for a low monthly payment, then you may want to lease a new F-150 truck with the revolutionary PowerBoost engine driving it along.

Due to its hybrid status, the Ford PowerBoost engine MPG is impressive. The two-wheel drive version gets an EPA-estimated 25/25/25 MPG (city/highway/combined).1 The available four-wheel drive Ford F-150 with the PowerBoost gets an EPA-estimated 23/23/23 MPG (city/highway/combined).1 During this time of high gas prices, the Ford F-150 with the hybrid powertrain can perform on the job site and save you money at the pump.

This vehicle configuration offers incredible utility to drivers both on and off the road. The PowerBoost powertrain allows you to use your vehicle as a mobile generator that can help you finish off a demanding job or have fun at a campsite. It can be configured with 120- and/or 240-volt outlets. The generator capability of the PowerBoost powertrain is yet another compelling reason to invest in a new hybrid Ford truck.

PowerBoost vs. EcoBoost: What's the Difference?

PowerBoost vs. EcoBoost: What’s the Difference?

The EcoBoost engine is part of the PowerBoost powertrain configuration. The twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6 engine is called the EcoBoost. The term “PowerBoost” refers to the powertrain that includes the EcoBoost engine and the paired battery and motor combination described above. Other Ford vehicles use the EcoBoost terminology, although the engine can have different ratings and capacities on different cars.

While we’re on this topic, it’s worth noting that the Ford electric and hybrid vehicle lineup is quite impressive. There are a number of hybrid Ford vehicles out there, and the all-electric Ford Mach-E Mustang offers the performance potential of the Mustang that inspired it alongside savings at the gas station. We are also eagerly awaiting the Ford F-150 Lightning release date. The Ford F-150 Lightning will be the first full-size all-electric pickup truck from Ford, and what we know about it already has us chomping at the bit to get behind the wheel.
