Ford F-150 Hybrid

I have not seen this new Ford Hybrid talked about on this forum. Please open the link below. Main point will be the "on board" generator in 3 different KW's. This generator (not a real generator) uses the large battery pack and the trucks engine. Just think of the advantage of plugging in you AS and having all the power you need to run EVERYTHING on the AS.


Spend some time on the Ford site also.

That's nice and all but it's uncertain how much the battery pack impacts payload. Early guesses were that payload on the Platinum or Lariat would be around 1200# with the hybrid whereas non-hybrid versions have 1600#.

This is really cool. I would hope that, after they prove it out in the market a few years, it might be available in the superduty.

Ford F-150 Hybrid

It is not clear to me if either the 7.2 kw generator or the 2.4 kw generator is available on only the F150 hybrid or other gas motors. It is nice to see Ford offering this package. This is at least a start.

Most any truck may have the room to install a 1,000 watt or a 2,000 watt inverter in the engine bay powered by the motor and the 12v alternator. I have installed a 1,000 watt inverter in my 2008 Tundra. It will operate the converter in our Tradewind to charge the lithium batteries if needed. We already have a 2,000 watt inverter in our Tradewind that will run EVERYTHING.

If you are content with the loss of payload and the concept that your truck engine has to start when the vehicle battery gets low, go for it. Personally, I will need to see how it works in the real world before I would even consider it.

My understanding is the 2.4kW and 7.2kW are only available with the hybrid.
The 2.0kW is available with the gas engines. I learned this through a lot of time spent in the early build configure.

This looks like a great solution for me. The biggest issue we have with a travel trailer vs a motor home is the lack of a built-in generator. When on the road, I want to be able to get a bite and leave the pup in the trailer with the AC on. This makes that a whole lot faster and so much more convenient. Sign me up!

Looking at this a bit closer, the Ford Pro Power system on the standard gas engine could work as well. It will deliver 2.4kw. That should power a single AC unit on a dual AC trailer with a micro-air Controller connected to it.
