Ford confirms hybrid F-150 on sale by 2020
Fox News

Note: First of all I know Ford did not say they were building a F-150 Hybrid by 2020, and feel dirty for posting a Fox News story...but in the name of positive Ford news...here goes

Ford is working on a hybrid version of its most popular, and profitable vehicle, the F-150 pickup, and it’s going it alone.

After exploring the idea of developing a new rear-wheel-drive hybrid system jointly with Toyota, Ford has announced the two companies will be moving forward with their own programs.

“We know what it takes to build world-class hybrids, and we now will build and leverage that expertise in-house,” said Ford’s global product chief, Raj Nair, in a press release marking the end of the collaboration.

Ford is seeing its best hybrid sales ever this year, with second quarter sales up 517 percent over 2012, thanks to the popularity of its new Ford C-Max, Fusion and Lincoln MKZ hybrid and plug-in hybrid cars.

Hoping to build on that momentum as fleet fuel economy standards head toward 54.5 mpg in 2025, Ford hopes to have hybrid versions of the F-150 and its full-size SUVs on sale by the end of this decade. Read More.....

It would be awesome if we could leave politics out of our car discussion.

It's not about politics, Fox News just don't get the facts about news right in general. This story is a prime example. Ford never stated there will be a F-150 Hybrid by 2020. Ford never gives future product specific plans to the media.
