Ford unveils first full hybrid pickup truck Ngy世界播

福特推出首款全混合动力皮卡Ngy世界播


I was laying flat on my back getting a gentle massage as I looked up at the clouds and the occasional seagull passing by overhead. For a moment, I could imagine I was at spa by the beach. But in reality, I was inside a Ford F-150 pickup truck in a parking lot in the Bronx. Ngy世界播

我仰面平躺着,轻柔地按摩着,抬头看着云朵和偶尔从头顶飞过的海鸥。有一瞬间,我可以想象我在海滩边的温泉浴场。但事实上,我当时在布朗克斯区一个停车场里的一辆福特F-150皮卡里。Ngy世界播


The illusion was nice while it lasted. The brand new 2021 Ford (F) F-150 4x4 SuperCrew Limited hybrid I was in had almost every available optional feature, putting its total price at nearly $80,000. (Without options, it would have been about $74,000 because the Limited version already includes a lot. The cheapest F-150s start at under $30,000.) Ngy世界播

当幻觉持续的时候,它是很好的。我乘坐的全新2021年福特(Ford)F-1504x4 SuperCrew Limited混合动力车几乎具备所有可用的可选功能,总价接近8万美元。(如果没有选项,价格将在7.4万美元左右,因为限量版已经包括了很多。最便宜的F-150起价不到3万美元。)。Ngy世界播


The price, at least, matched the luxury experience I was having. This truck had a glass roof and front seats that reclined all the way back to function as cots. The seats also had a customizable massage feature so my bed was giving me a back rub as I looked up at the sky. Ngy世界播

这个价格至少和我享受的奢华体验相匹配。这辆卡车有一个玻璃车顶和前排座椅,可以一直向后倾斜,充当婴儿床的功能。座椅还有一个可定制的按摩功能,所以当我抬头仰望天空时,我的床会让我的背部得到按摩。Ngy世界播


This F-150 also had all the necessary technology hardware so that, when the software is finally ready around a year from now I could take my hands off the steering wheel on most major highways and let the truck largely drive itself. Ngy世界播

这架F-150还配备了所有必要的技术硬件,因此,大约一年后,当软件最终准备就绪时,我可以在大多数主要高速公路上把手从方向盘上移开,让卡车在很大程度上自动驾驶。Ngy世界播


My phone rang. It was my editor telling me to look at a story we'd been working on. Beach buzz killed, I whirred my seat back to its upright position and reached for my laptop. I pressed a button and the F-150's gear selector folded down flat. Then I pressed another button on the center console's extra-thick lid and flipped it open so that it created a desk between the front seats. Ngy世界播

我的电话响了。是我的编辑让我看看我们一直在写的一篇报道。海滩上的嗡嗡声被扼杀了,我把座位转回直立的位置,伸手去拿我的笔记本电脑。我按下一个按钮,F-150的档位选择器就平折了。然后,我按下中控台超厚盖子上的另一个按钮,将其打开,这样它就在前排座位之间形成了一张桌子。Ngy世界播


Ford's powerful new F-150 offers fully reclining seats and a bottle opener Ngy世界播

福特功能强大的新款F-150提供了完全躺式座椅和开瓶器。Ngy世界播


I plugged my laptop into a power outlet in the back of the center console and got to work. Twisting sideways to reach that center desk wasn't the most comfortable way to type but moving the driver's seat back a little helped. And it was certainly better than wedging my MacBook between my gut and the steering wheel as I would in most vehicles. Ngy世界播

我把笔记本电脑插到中控台后面的电源插座上,开始工作。侧着身子去拿桌子并不是最舒服的打字方式,但把驾驶座靠背往后移一点会有帮助。而且,这肯定比我把MacBook夹在肚子和方向盘之间要好得多,就像我在大多数汽车上做的那样。Ngy世界播


The F-150 has some other neat features, too, like a long storage bin that unfolds from underneath the back seats. It gives you a place to put stuff so it's not rolling around the cab and under the seats. It's hardly unique -- both the Ram 1500 and Chevrolet Silverado offer similar storage bins -- and the differences come down to which one is deeper and which ones allow you to fold the seats down while the bin is in use. (In the F-150 the bin has sides that unfold and when they are up, you get a nice deep storage bin, but then you can't use the back seats.) Ngy世界播

F-150还有其他一些整洁的特点,比如一个可以从后座下面展开的长长的储物箱。它给了你一个放置东西的地方,这样它就不会在驾驶室周围和座位下滚动。它并不是独一无二的--Ram 1500和雪佛兰Silverado都提供类似的储物箱--区别在于哪个储物箱更深,哪些储物箱可以让你在使用储物箱时将座椅折叠起来。(在F-150中,垃圾箱的侧边可以展开,当它们朝上时,你会得到一个很好的深储物箱,但之后你就不能使用后座了。)。Ngy世界播


The storage bins are just part of the escalating battle among full-size pickup manufacturers to make today's pickup trucks more comfortable and more useful for things besides hauling large heavy stuff. Companies like Ford spend countless hours watching real truck owners use their trucks in real life. Researchers observe owners' frustrations as they try to sleep, work and store stuff where it won't get stolen. That sort of work has led to innovations like the Ram truck's RamBoxes -- lockable storage bins inside the walls of the truck bed -- and the GMC Sierra's MultiPro tailgate that unfolds into steps, a desk, a mini tailgate inside the tailgate and more. Ngy世界播

这些储物箱只是全尺寸皮卡制造商之间不断升级的争斗的一部分,目的是让今天的皮卡更舒适,更有用,除了运输大而重的东西之外。像福特这样的公司花了无数个小时观看真正的卡车车主在现实生活中使用他们的卡车。研究人员观察了失主在睡觉、工作和把东西存放在不会被偷的地方时的沮丧情绪。这类工作催生了一些创新,比如Ram Truck的Rambox--卡车车床墙壁内的可锁储物箱--以及GMC Sierra的Multipro后挡板(可展开为多个台阶)、办公桌、后挡板内的迷你后挡板等等。Ngy世界播


To compete, the F-150's power-operated tailgate also has a fold-down step (a feature Ford has offered for years) built-in rulers, places to clamp stuff and a cubby for pens. It's useful but not state-of-the-art like GM's fancy tailgate. Ngy世界播

为了与之竞争,F-150的电动后挡板也有一个可折叠的台阶(福特多年来一直提供的一个功能),内置尺子,夹东西的地方和一个放钢笔的小隔间。它很有用,但不像通用汽车的花哨后挡板那样是最先进的。Ngy世界播


Trucks these days are available in an enormous variety, from the basic work trucks your county parks department buys, to ones like the Limited model I was in. All the F-150 lacked was a microwave oven and a bathroom. With that, I might never have had to leave that parking lot in the Bronx. Come to think of it, the Limited model I was driving was also the new F-150 hybrid, so it had a cluster of electrical sockets in the bed connected to the truck's big batteries. The lack of a microwave was my fault. I should have brought one. Ngy世界播

如今,卡车种类繁多,从县公园部门购买的基本工作卡车,到我乘坐的限量型卡车,应有尽有。F-150只缺一台微波炉和一间浴室。有了它,我可能再也不用离开布朗克斯区的停车场了。想想看,我驾驶的Limited车型也是新的F-150混合动力车,所以它的床上有一簇连接着卡车大电池的电插座。没有微波炉是我的错。我应该带一个来的。Ngy世界播


Ford's new F-150 will test whether truck buyers really want hybrids Ngy世界播

福特新款F-150将测试卡车买家是否真的想要混合动力车。Ngy世界播


On the road, the hybrid system worked amazingly well, smoothly shifting between its turbocharged V6 engine and battery power as I drove home on the highway. It's not a plug-in hybrid -- it generates all its own electricity -- but it is the most powerful as well as the most fuel-efficient F-150. With the same EPA-estimated 24 miles per gallon in both city and highway driving, it gets about four more mpg, on average, than the comparable non-hybrid version. Ngy世界播

在路上,混合动力系统工作得非常好,当我在高速公路上开车回家时,它的涡轮增压V6发动机和电池动力之间平稳地切换。它不是插电式混合动力机--它自己发电--但它是最强劲、最省油的F-150。在EPA相同的情况下-在城市和高速公路上行驶估计每加仑24英里-它平均比可比的非混合动力版本多跑4英里。Ngy世界播


Beyond that, the experience would be familiar to F-150 owners. It's a big, tall truck, wallowing in turns, bounding through big bumps. If there's such a thing as a "driver's pickup," the F-150 isn't even trying for that. This truck drives like a truck. Ngy世界播

除此之外,F-150的拥有者也会对这种体验很熟悉。这是一辆又大又高的卡车,轮流翻滚,在巨大的颠簸中颠簸。如果有“司机皮卡”这样的东西,F-150甚至都没有尝试过。这辆卡车开起来像卡车。Ngy世界播


When I arrived back home I dropped the power-operated tailgate and popped open a bottle of winter ale on the latch tabs designed just for that purpose. They were also designed to hold the tailgate closed, of course, and to function as tie-down tabs for long items. It's a small detail, but by looking after its owners like that Ford can probably count on continuing to be the best selling truck in America for a good while longer. Ngy世界播

当我回到家时,我放下了电动后挡板,打开了专为此目的而设计的锁舌上的一瓶冬啤。当然,它们的设计也是为了保持后挡板关闭,并起到长物品的捆绑标签的作用。这只是一个很小的细节,但通过像这样照顾它的车主,福特很可能会在很长一段时间内继续成为美国最畅销的卡车。Ngy世界播
