Seen it can tow up to 14,000# and the electric motor can act as a generator producing between 2.4-7.2 kilowatts depending on configuration. Sounds like a good match for RV owners.

The hybrid will be able to tow up to 12,700 pounds and haul up to 2,120 pounds, Ford says.

Hopefully it's a plug-in version, having the ability to travel 25 or more miles on electric only.

The article said (14,000# tow rating a 800# increase over the 2020 model. This model is also capable of hauling a 3325 payload).

Just what I read the in news so take it for what's it worth.

It appears that the hybrid is good for 12,700lbs and the 14,000lbs rating is for the non-hybrid drive train.

Hybrid, 12,700lbs

Standard truck 14,000lbs

Until I see it in the towing handbook I am going to take the numbers with a grain of salt.

The HO version of the 3.5 used in the Raptor and Limited is missing from the charts but the standard version is up to 400hp while the hybrid is at 430hp. Presumably for just a short burst though with only a 1.5kwh battery. I would like to see it with at least a 10kwh battery.

Nope. Not nearly battery to even consider that.

"This model is also capable of hauling a 3325 payload"

I will be much more impressed if the payload package is more obtainable and can be combined with the higher towing ratings. It has been almost impossible to get for the last 6 years and required seemingly unrelated compromises if you did special order it.

That's a shame. They are missing out on a great opportunity in an wide open market segment. Imagine the wife driving the kids to school everyday. Imagine driving to work every day.....and charging for free with your rooftop solar. You could average 75mpg! You'd save enough on gas for that two week camping trip every year. And, your gasoline motor would only be working 1/4 the time......lasting forever!

3325lb payload. Wow, man Ford really is leading the way here.

They even have trucks made of unobtanium now!
