Can’t even begin to say how gob smacked impressed I am with this F150 Hybrid
The ride quality is like riding on a cushion
The technology is simply first rate. It will tow 14,000lbs! But best of all it has automatic load leveling so you don’t need to install those stupid air bags for trailering. Got the platinum loaded. The limited does not come with a tow mirrors as an option.As you can see I got the black out option.
Really can’t say enough about it!
I’m sure Karl Brauer could do a brilliant write up!

Wasn't too long ago that towing 14,000 pounds was solidly in the 3/4 to 1 ton truck range.

How does it brake while towing a heavy load.

It has adjustment to add or reduce Brake gain
Just like trailering anything you have to anticipate breaking and keep a safe distance. The basic rule of thumb of trailing ,as we all know. Seems to do great pulling my trailer race car and all the parts to go with it. It pulls like a dream compared to my previous F150

What kind of range does it get if your towing a trailer such as a car hauler with a car? Say about 8500 lbs for trailer, car and equipment.

I'd be interested in hearing your thoughts and experiences. I'm looking for a new tow rig to pull my 24' aluminum trailer, track car and equipment. I need something to replace my 2018 F150 and I'm looking for options.

It has a 14k towing capacity. Based on having had several F150’s ( my last was a 2018 diesel)
I imagine it’s going to be terrific full report on Sunday!

Nice choice Ron. Mine comes in January. I see you got the more aggressive hood. Surprised you never went for the rear bumper exhaust cut outs.

Hope you don't have to power your house with it this winter!

Very impresive, I recently got my F150 2021 from Walwork Trucks and I am quite happy with my new addition.

...for a short distance.

It also has the option for up to 7.2KW Pro Power center, which provides 120 and 240 volt outputs. You literally can power your house with it. Ron, does yours have that option?

Ron, you may already know this: You need a transfer switch on your house that will disconnect from line power when the power goes out. Then you can plug in the truck to power the house. You will need a power connector on the house that accepts the other end of a power connect cord, similar to what an RV uses.

The cord will need the correct connector on the other end to plug into the 240V outlet on your truck. With 7.2KW of power, at 240V, that is a max of 30 amps. 30 amps requires a connect cord of 10 gauge with three conductors plus ground, commonly designated as "10/3" cable. The length, obviously, should be enough to reach from the the inlet to the house, to the truck where you can conveniently park it.

If you need more info, let me know.
