Can the 2024 Ford F150 Hybrid Power an RV?

Like previous years models, the 2024 Ford F150 Hybrid is an innovative truck. This truck comes with multiple 120-volt three-pronged outlets in the truck bed and can be turned into a generator when not in use. The power system has the capacity to generate up to 2,600 watts of power and the 2.4 kW inverter on the 2024 Ford F-150 Hybrid model offers up to 85 hours of runtime with a full tank of gasoline. That’s up to 3.5 days of power!

Because the engine serves as both a motivator and a generator, it is possible to power your RV while camping. The engine can either power the truck while driving or become a generator when stationary. And the engine doesn’t need to run the whole time either. Instead, the EcoBoost engine will activate automatically to provide more power when necessary.

Specs of the Ford F150 Hybrid 

The fantastic features of the 2024 Ford F150 Hybrid are numerous. The most impressive features include the EcoBoost engine, towing and payload capacity, and increased fuel efficiency. Let’s look at each of these in-depth.

EcoBoost Engine

Ford’s EcoBoost engine sets their trucks apart and the 2024 F150 Hybrid is no different. The 3.5L V6 hybrid engine, using gasoline and electricity, boasts 430 horsepower and 570 pound-feet of torque. Although this is impressive on its own, the EcoBoost engine can also power an internal 240-volt or 30-amp generator.  

Towing and Payload Capacity

The 2024 Ford F150 Hybrid has both best-in-class available towing and payload capacities. Specifically, the F150 Hybrid can tow up to 13,500 pounds and has a payload capacity of up to 2,455 pounds. However impressive these numbers are, you should note that the truck can’t simultaneously max out on towing and payload capacity.

Additionally, the F150 Hybrid can travel more than 700 miles on one gas tank, making long road trips more enjoyable.

When Is the 2024 Ford F150 Hybrid Available? 

The 2024 Ford F150 Hybrid is available now. Typically, automotive companies release new models at the end of the previous year. And the 2024 Ford F150 Hybrid was no different. It hit dealership lots in the late fall of 2023. 

How Much Will the Ford F150 Hybrid Cost? 

The Ford F150 Hybrid starts at $47,620 for the XL hybrid upgrade model but can go as high as $73,425 for the King Ranch and Platinum models. But these are just starting prices. Each model is fully customizable, meaning you can add or upgrade features. Add-ons and upgrades mean a price increase, so be prepared to pay more if you want to customize.

Pro Tip: Unsure if you want to commit to buying a 5th wheel for your F150 to tow? A Truck Camper might be a better option for you. These are The Best Truck Camper Brands.

Is This Ford Hybrid Worth It for RVers? 

The 2024 Ford F150 Hybrid offers impressive payload and towing capacities. It also has increased fuel efficiency because of the hybrid EcoBoost engine. However, what makes this truck truly worth it for an RVer is the integral generator powered by the EcoBoost. 

Whether you’re using it as your full-time generator or a backup, having a generator with you wherever you go is a huge benefit to any RVer. Whatever features impress you the most, the 2024 Ford F150 Hybrid has consistently proven to be a good choice for RVers across the country.

Currently using a 2018 F150 with tow package to haul our 29 foot travel trailer. Has same engine, towing capacities, etc as hybrid, but minus the electric. Would definitely like to try the hybrid. Having generator for trailer is game changer! 700 mile travel? Wonder what the distance is under load?

Good question, I knew one person using the hybrid, and it had plenty of power, but he seriously overloaded the truck and damaged the rear axle twice!

Ford patented an idea I was pushing. They would be charging a dinghy towed electric battery by regenerative braking. Motorized RVs could save on brakes by aggressively braking with the toad EV/Hybrid plug in. The toad would fully charge it's battery and be able to drive local trips from the campsite, or power the RV overnight. The next day the toads battery could be recharged via regenerated braking again. Ford also included using the toad to push the RV up hills when needed. One thing I didn't see in Fords patent was my idea that the RV and toad could backup without disconnecting as most vehicles have steer by wire or independent braking to ensure the steering tracks the RV correctly when backing up.

We have the 2022 F150 Hybrid and live on the road full time with our 15 foot squaredrop trailer. Absolutely love the onboard generator for boondocking shore power, it was a primary reason for the purchase. But absolutely hate that we have four dealer visits in one year for generator battery charging issues....
