Ford has exciting news regarding America’s most popular truck. The Ford F-series trucks, including the F-150, have been the bestselling vehicle in America for four straight decades. Ford announced its flagship model will have an electric version in the future. There is currently not an electric full-size truck on the market, so the brand is leading the way.

At Elkins Fordland, we’re excited about the innovation and technology that will make this possible, something that truck lovers in Clarksburg, WV will also appreciate. The Ford F-150 is certainly a popular vehicle at our dealership and has lots of features that make it a top-of-the-line truck.

Hybrid Version Planned as Well

In addition to the all-electric version of the truck, Ford also plans to design a hybrid one as well. The hybrid version would still run partly on gasoline. The electric version would not use any gasoline or diesel.

The exact details on these new models have not been released, but the brand has suggested that the electric version would be ideal for those who need a truck for hauling or towing but don’t travel long distances. Most electric vehicles currently allow for at home charging or charging at public high-voltage machine.

Technology Innovation Available Now

Performance should be no problem, as the current Ford F-150 truck outperforms other trucks in its class in hauling and towing. The truck is also a standout with its military-grade, aluminum-alloy body and has technology features that wow with available driver-assist technologies. This includes the Ford Co-Pilot360™. This futuristic technology can help you back up, which can be especially difficult when you have a trailer.  Available BLIS also helps you with towing and lane changing, which is another often risky maneuver.

You can see these technologies firsthand when you visit your local Clarksburg, WV Ford dealership. Stop by today and see the 2019 Ford-F150 today.
