Blue Oval has already begun a mid-cycle refresh of the pickup truck that is the best-selling in the world. The mid-cycle refresh will also affect the 2024 Ford F-150 Hybrid. The exact details are not yet available, but the test mule is covered in camouflage which suggests a lot more styling changes.
Interior updates, particularly in terms of the new tech features such as the large touchscreen, are possible. We don’t think this version will bring more changes to the interior, so we expect the same level of performance. We are sure that the company will continue offering an electrified powertrain throughout the range. However, we do not believe there are any new features or standards. The F-150 Hybrid will be available in the second half of the year.
2024 Ford F-150 Hybrid New Design
The 2024 Ford F-150 Hybrid will be getting a mid-cycle refresh, as we have just mentioned. Although the test mule was spotted on the roads a few times, it still sports heavy camouflage. The entire front end of the vehicle is covered, including the bumper, headlights, and grille, as well as the hood and fenders. This indicates that there have been a lot more changes. This suggests that there will be a complete update. However, the actual styling changes should not be too noticeable.
Camouflage is also used on the rear end. We don’t expect only minor changes to taillights or other similar areas. A new multi-functional tailgate is also expected, which will be able to compete with the Silverado 1500’s Multi-Flex and Ram 1500’s multi-function tailgates. We don’t anticipate any major changes to the chassis or suspension.
Since pickup trucks were once just machines, it’s been a while. Modern models offer high levels of convenience and quality interiors. This is why we anticipate further improvements, especially with the recent redesign of Silverado’s interior. This could mean that the dashboard may be updated, and new colors, etc. We also expect to see new tech features. Most sources speculate about the 15.5-inch infotainment display, which was already featured in the refreshed Expedition.
Each trim level will have its unique features regarding standard and available equipment, but the organization of equipment groups will not change. The best thing about the F-150 Hybrid is that it is available across the entire range. This means that even the basic XL can have an electrified powertrain. This setup is available in most trims, except the Limited trim.
The XL trim will be available once more. It comes with cloth upholstery, an 8-inch touch screen, a Wi-Fi hotspot, Bluetooth, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and Bluetooth.
The XLT trim adds alloy wheels, blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and lane keep assist. While the Lariat adds a larger touchscreen, a 12-inch digital gauge cluster and dual-zone automatic climate controls, push-button start, and many other goodies, the Lariat has a larger touchscreen.
King Ranch, Platinum, and Limited trim levels are where luxury starts and adds more and more features. The Tremor models even have a hybrid powertrain, which includes an upgraded suspension, multiple skid plates, and hill descent control.
This aspect of the truck will not change from other parts. You can count on a combination of a 3.5-liter turbo four and an electric motor for a combined output of 430 horsepower. This is enough to provide strong driving dynamics and a comfortable ride. This setup offers excellent performance and a high fuel economy. This powertrain is the most efficient in fuel consumption, with an average fuel efficiency of 25 mpg city and 25 highway.
This setup offers excellent driving dynamics and very high fuel economy. It also has a respectable towing capability. An F-150 Hybrid properly equipped can tow 12.700 pounds. We don’t anticipate seeing any bigger changes after the refresh.
Ford Authority claims that the 2024 Ford F-150 will get a multifunction tailgate similar to those found on the Ram 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500. Ford filed a patent in January for a multifunction tailgate.
You could have it swing out like the Ram 1500’s rear tailgate. This would allow you to load cargo closer to the bed. It could also have a shelf, step and extender built-in, similar to the GMC Sierra 1500’s tailgate. Those who have a keen eye may be able to spot the set EPA exhaust tips underneath the rear bumper. This could indicate that the F-15 will be getting a new setup to make it more fuel-efficient.
The F-150’s current 2.7-liter V6 engine gets up to 20 mpg in cities and 26 mpg on highways. The F-150 Hybrid is estimated to get 25 mpg on the highway and in the city. The dash and the center stack are camouflaged. This could be a sign that the 2024 F-150 will have a new layout. It is possible that the infotainment screen will change and that the digital gauge cluster will be updated. Some critics believe that Ford Sync 4 will be replaced with Google. This is a bad idea, as Ford Sync 4 software is intuitive and fast.
Perhaps, but there has not been any official information about the 2024 Ford F-150 powertrain options. There are five engines available at the moment, but some options may be dropped, changed, or tuned differently. The 3.3-liter V6 engine is the standard engine, delivering 290 horsepower and 265 lb-ft torque. The supercharged 5.8-liter engine produces 700 HP and 640 Lb-ft for the Ford F-150 Raptor R.
Trucks that are found in testing can indicate that the final design process has almost finished. They might be checking the mechanics to make sure that the new designs are working properly.
We will soon learn more about F-150 2024. Keep checking back for more information. It is expected to arrive in the middle of 2023.
