Ford has shown its latest F-150, which includes a hybrid version for the first time. But it will only be built in left-hand drive and so you will need to pay for a local conversion for Australian roads.
Ford says the hybrid will have a range of more than 1100km per tank full
The battery capacity is 1.5kWh which is not high and while it will allow for a small amount of electric driving only, the setup is not just a pollution reduction measure.
The hybrid technology will boost the towing capacity to nearly 5,500 kgs
All models get a ten-speed automatic transmission; rear wheel drive is standard while AWD is optional.
