One of the selling points of the 2021 Ford F-150 hybrid is its impressive EPA-estimated gas mileage of 25/26/25 mpg city/highway/combined for rear-wheel-drive versions and 24/24/24 mpg for four-wheel-drive trucks. Those are the highest combined mpg estimates for the 2021 F-150, but the hybrid is also the most powerful drivetrain the F-150 offers — at least until the redesigned F-150 Raptor arrives. The hybrid is rated at 430 system horsepower and 570 pounds-feet of torque, and a large 30.6-gallon fuel tank gives this full-size pickup an estimated driving range in excess of 700 miles.

We’ve owned our F-150 Limited hybrid for nearly seven months and have put around 12,000 miles on it. For 2,793 of those miles, the truck was towing a trailer with the majority (1,872 miles) accumulated with a 25-foot Airstream travel trailer in tow. We also towed a lightweight Taxa Cricket camper and used a U-Haul auto transport to tow a car on two different occasions. Additionally, we tested our truck’s optional 7.2-kilowatt Pro Power Onboard generator system, which consumed some fuel that otherwise would have been used to move the truck.
