I wanted AWD for heavy rain/light off-roading, 4k tow to potentially pull a small travel trailer, uHaul, jet skis, etc., and the fun aftermarket potential.
Waited 14 months for a hybrid. Changed to EB first day they allowed it. Scheduled 2 weeks later. Love the zip that this truck has. 30 mpg instead of 40 not a big deal to me as I am retired and don’t drive that many miles a year. Haven’t been recalled yet either….so there’s that.Both the Hybrid and EB are good choices for many reasons. It’s clear that gas mileage is a major factor in purchasing the Hybrid. I would be interested to hear the main reasons buyers chose the EB instead of the Hybrid.
can’ believe it took 3 pages to find this reply. It’s right on. I’ll also add that I don’t City drive in short under 15mph stop and go. I’m always +35 - Highway interstate drivingI didn't trust Ford with a hybrid engine
Hybrids have more expensive maintenance
I can work on a normal vehicle myself
Oh yeah, and I dont trust CVTs
As you've stated, I think it is still too early to say that the Ecoguzzler 2.0 is more reliable than the hybrid powertrain. From "my" personal experience these past 6 years with the hybrid engine (same engine as in my Lincoln MKZ Hybrid), the 2.5 has been very reliable. Reliability also depends on how well you maintain a vehicle.AWD, Increased towing/hauling, reliability (EV's are still too new), longevity.
Several reasons. One is unknown reliability of new technology around the hybrid. Many recalls so far. Two is the all-wheel drive. Three is I like gas engines.Both the Hybrid and EB are good choices for many reasons. It’s clear that gas mileage is a major factor in purchasing the Hybrid.
