Thumbs up 2013, Ford to introduce new hybrid F series trucks

Ford Teams With Azure for Hybrid Super Duty Trucks

By Joseph Lichterman, Automotive News

Posted by AutoWeek Friday, July 29, 2011 5:07:17 AM

Ford Motor Co., moving to expand its hybrid truck lineup, has signed a deal with Azure Dynamics Corp. to put plug-in hybrid powertrains in F-Series Super Duty trucks.

Azure will retrofit the F-350, F-450 and F-550 trucks with its hybrid-electric drive trains. The F-550 will be the first to feature the technology, early in 2013, Azure said.

The electrified trucks will be aimed at fleet and commercial customers.

The F-Series Super Duty accounts for about half of the 100,000 commercial cab and chassis produced and sold annually in the United States.

The full story may be read here.
It appears Ford is outdistancing the competition. I just may switch out my bowtie if they prove reliable for towing my 5er.
