We’re not even done with 2022, and we’re already talking about hybrid pickup trucks available in 2024. But the electrification of everything on wheels is ramping up faster than anticipated. And hybrids have become a nice stepping stone to full EV adoption. So automakers are pushing to get these interim hybrid trucks to buyers as fast as possible. We have nine to tell you about.

Ford Maverick hybrid pickup

The Ford Maverick continues to confound the critics who thought minitrucks were dead and gone. And it continues to evolve with the hybrid option. This front-wheel-drive pickup comes standard with the hybrid system. Power is from a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that cranks out 191 hp. A non-hybrid option is available, but you should embrace the change and enjoy the gas savings.

The hybrid option for the F-150 costs $4,500 but should save you money in the long run, especially with the price of gas lately. The F-150’s hybrid system starts with the 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6. It’s tied to a 35-kW motor, driving a 10-speed automatic transmission. With this combo, you can see up to 700 miles between fill-ups. 

Toyota Tundra hybrid pickup

Toyota calls its Tundra hybrid system i-Force Max. It starts with a 3.4-liter twin-turbo V6 with an electric motor attached. Behind that is a 10-speed automatic transmission. They combine for 389 hp and 583 lb-ft of torque. That nets a towing capacity of 11,450 pounds, which should be enough for most owners. The hybrid system adds an additional $3,400 but should pay for itself fairly rapidly. 

Ram 1500 hybrid

Ram has been late to the hybrid and electric game but is quickly getting with the program. Its eTorque system puts out 305 hp and 270 lb-ft from the 3.6-liter V6 engine. Ram’s hybrid system is a reasonable $2,295. 

Honda Ridgeline hybrid

New for 2023, the Ridgeline plug-in hybrid system features the 3.5-liter V6 pushed with a hybrid motor and nine-speed automatic transmission. Though Honda hasn’t released official specs as of this writing, expect 300 hp. The price will be right at $40,000.

Hyundai Santa Cruz hybrid

Hyundai has revamped the popular Santa Cruz for 2023 with more options, colors, and updates. A new suspension and dampers should improve stability. It packs a 2.5-liter turbo-four-cylinder engine. The gas engine puts out 281 hp, so we expect the hybrid version to top 300 hp. 

Toyota Tacoma hybrid pickup

Considering Toyota led the hybrid charge, we expected a hybrid Tacoma long before now. Nonetheless, 2023 will be when this midsize truck gets hybrid power. Toyota hasn’t revealed its chosen engine, but it’s predicted to be a detuned version of the Tundra’s twin-turbo V6 powertrain. So you can expect around 300 hp from it. 

Jeep Gladiator 4xe hybrid

Jeep is waiting until 2024 when it debuts a refreshed Wrangler JL, on which the Gladiator is based. Along with the refresh will be the Wrangler Unlimited’s hybrid system. The current 4xe has a hybrid system and uses two electric motors combined with the turbo-four and eight-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission. That translates to 375 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque. Will Jeep squeeze more power from this hybrid combo? We’ll know soon.

Ford tackled a hybrid and all-electric F-150 first. Now, the all-new Ranger is due for those electrified drive systems. Deep into the new Ranger’s development, Ford had enough to contend with to debut the midsize truck in 2023. So shifting to the Ranger plug-in hybrid system, the Blue Oval will use its 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine. Rumors suggest it won’t appear until 2025, but we expect Ford has fast-tracked all its electric initiatives and will have the Ranger hybrid truck by 2024. A fully electric version will be released at the same time.
