Ford F-150 Hybrid Coming via JV with Toyota
Toyota and Ford signed a deal last year, with the aim to develop a hybrid powertrain that would be suitable for rear-wheel drive SUVs and trucks. Each company will tweak the design to suit its own vehicle, so while Ford will set it up for its F-150, Expedition and Lincoln Navigator, Toyota will adapt it to suit the needs of the Sequoia.
However, engineers are still looking at ways to overcome the obstacle brought by towing, an activity that places a lot of stress both on the battery and on the electric motor.
