What you see right here is a new 2021 Ford F-150 Hybrid truck that has been built up by BDS Suspension as a build for this year’s virtual SEMA show. This happens to be the most expensive and highly optioned Limited model of the new F-150. While this truck is very luxurious and customized, it begs the question – will this F-150 Hybrid be the next favorite overland truck platform because of its 7.2 kW power output capability? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
F-150 Hybrid Build
This SEMA build receives a 4-inch suspension lift, custom skid plate, 2.5 FOX shocks, Ridetech air-bag system, and 20-inch wheels wrapped in 35-inch mud-terrain tires. In the back are a Yakima bed rack and bed drawer system to store the multitude of electric power tools and accessories that this truck has the built-in capability to power and charge.
The powertrain is stock. It features the latest 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 that is mated to an electric motor and a 10-speed automatic transmission. The combined power output is 430 hp and 570 lb-ft of torque. The SEMA truck does have a Borla exhaust system with dual outlets. The truck is also wearing a Ford Performance rear differential cover.
The truck is also able to power an ARB refrigerator/freezer and an ARB air compressor. How would you setup your overland truck build if you had 7.2 kW of available total output power? This maximum power output can last up to 32 hours if the F-150’s 30-gallon fuel tank is full.
