Hybrid performance no longer underwhelms - with Ford introducing its 2018 F-250 to the North American market. This Super Duty platform has been thoroughly refreshed, emphasizing premium power with every rev.

Prepare, Alberta, for the ultimate hybrid experience.



According to PickupTrucks.com, the 2018 F-250 has been transformed into a potent EV - courtesy of a partnership between Ford and XL Hybrids. Anchoring this platform is an advanced dual powertrain, which combines a 6.2L V8 with a 1.8-kWH lithium-ion battery pack. A front-mounted inverter delivers a steady performance band, sending bursts of torque to the AWD; while an XLink telematics controller assesses every rev, optimizing both fuel levels and air intakes to ensure maximum capability.

The result is a hybrid that can achieve 385 HP and 430 lb.-ft of torque while in traditional combustible mode - and then generate an additional 220 lb.-ft of torque when engaging its lithium-powered throttle. This ensures a 0 to 60 run of 6.7-seconds and a maximum tow rating of 15,000 pounds. Compromise is a thing of the past.

The 2018 F-250 Super Duty will be available in limited North American markets - but, should it prove popular, Ford may expand its production schedule. We’ll keep our fingers crossed.
