Hybrid F-150

:chin: I found an article stating that Ford plans on releasing a hybrid F-150 that is scheduled go on sale in August of 2008. Ford claims that the truck is 300% more efficient than a Toyota Prius, and matches its mpg around town with a CVT(continuously variable transmission).

I wonder if this will make the F-150 a dog when it comes to stuff such as towing, carrying heavy loads, and just basic stuff you use trucks for. I assume it will probably gain a significant amount of weight.

Still I know several people that spend $120+ a week on gas for their trucks that would love one that gets 60 mpg,(who wouldn't) and I'm sure this will be an option on the truck, and not standard.

Here's the article:
Ford Invents Hybrid that is 300% more efficient than Toyota Prius

So what would be the point of owning a truck again?

Trucks are pimp. If they didn't have Mustangs I would get an F-150. I'm always having to barrowing peoples trucks for something.

I'm looking at a diesel for a dd, don't plan on hauling stuff every day, but it'll sure make it nicer when I do have to haul stuff.
