As thousands of Texas grapple with the fallout from this week’s winter storm, Ford Motor Company is stepping up and doing its part to help rather than, say, fly to Cancun for a vacation. The automaker is working with its extensive network of Lone Star State dealers to roll out 2021 Ford F-150 PowerBoost hybrids equipped with Pro Power on-board generators.

“When an unprecedented disaster strikes, Ford answers the call,” said Andrew Frick, Ford vice president of sales for the United States and Canada. “Texans have long been passionate supporters of Ford and our Built Ford Tough pickups; Now it’s our turn to honor some of that dedication by mobilizing our inventory of F-150 hybrids equipped with generators to help those in need of electricity.

Ford said Automotive News As of Thursday, there are currently about 415 F-150 PowerBoost hybrids in dealerships in Texas. Each version of the F-150 equipped with the class-exclusive fully hybrid V6 also features the integrated generator, with standard power of 2.4 kilowatts or the maximum available power of 7.2 kilowatts.

The efficiency of the Pro Power Onboard generator has been a topic of discussion with the 2021 Ford F-150 long before this week’s climate catastrophe. Ford says that with maximum power, a Pro Power Onboard generator can power 28 refrigerators at the same time. While that number may have sounded hyperbolic before, it could now prove to be crucial for families across Texas.

With the 2021 Ford F-150 arriving at dealerships in Texas late last year, several residents are already using their Pro Power Onboard generators. One such example is Katy’s Randy Jones, who bought a 2021 Ford F-150 PowerBoost Hybrid two weeks ago.

Jones told @FordOnline he wanted a new F-150 equipped with the 7.2 kilowatt Pro Power Onboard because he thought he could use it to help parents living in Louisiana if they lost power. electricity due to a hurricane. In the end, he used the truck to power his house and help his neighbors charge their electronics until power was restored on Wednesday.

“It worked as advertised and I’m glad I got it,” he said. “I ran it for 10 to 12 hours a day for three and a half days.”
