Sizing them up
The two of these trucks are versions of the 14th-technology Ford F-150, our Edmunds Major Rated Truck for 2022. Let’s commence with the hybrid design, which pairs Ford’s common twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 motor with a battery pack and an electric powered motor. The goal of this program is ostensibly performance — its EPA estimate of up to 25 mpg put together is a big offering position. But it also provides loads of get-up-and-go. The F-150 Hybrid, or PowerBoost, makes 430 horsepower and 570 lb-ft of torque vs . the typical 3.5-liter twin-turbo’s 400 hp and 500 lb-ft. On the other hand, its tested body weight of 5,766 lbs — approximately a thousand far more than an equivalent non-hybrid F-150 — is sure to get a chunk out of functionality.
At a look, the F-150 Raptor is much better suited for a race in the grime. This is a dedicated superior-velocity off-road device, with a broader stance than the F-150 and huge 37-inch tires (an possibility) for churning up earth and promptly transforming way. It also will get a extra really serious version of the twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 that is very good for 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque. So that’s far more horsepower but fewer torque than the hybrid-run F-150. Though the hybrid definitely gives the scales a training, though, the F-150 Raptor risks breaking them. We weighed our take a look at model at 5,961 kilos — just about three tons even.
