LoL yes I know what it is and plug in tech is not the way to go in a truck. Look how ineffective it is in the Wranger 4Xe add any type of weight to a truck and that plug in battery is dead in miles..Do you understand what a PHEV is? It is not an all electric vehicle. The Ford-150 Powerboost is a HEV and it's only difference as compared to a PHEV is that the battery pack is smaller and the battery pack cannot be plugged in. The F-150 Powerboost can tow 12,700 lbs. It's range is as good (or better) than the regular F-150 because it also has the 3.5 Ecoboost just like the regular F-150.
A Ranger PHEV is reported to have have the 2.3 Ecoboost combined with an electric motor and battery pack that will give it 360 HP and 500 lb-ft of torque. The battery pack can be plugged in and charged at home or at a commercial charger. It will be excellent at towing with a range as good (or better) than the regular Ranger.
