Ford F-150 gets entirely new engine lineup

For 33 years the Ford F-150 has been the best selling truck in America, and with good reason.  Excellent design, attention to detail, and outstanding capability have been the truck's hallmark for years.  The only tarnish on the F-150 for the past few years has been the engine.  All of that is about to change.

Starting with the 2011 Ford F-150 an entirely new lineup of engines has been introduced.  After a hiatus of the past few years a V6 is again available in the F-150 in trim levels up to XLT in Rear Wheel Drive applications.  The 3.7L V6, the same one used in the Mustang and several other cars is available in the F-150 pumping out 300 horsepower and 275 lb.-ft. of torque and will tow up to 6,100 pounds.

Gone is the 4.6L SOHC engine and in its place is the new 5.0L 32-valve, DOHC engine found in the Mustang.  Albeit with specific changes that make it more suitable for trucks.  A slight reduction in compression ratio to 10.5:1 as well as a revised exhaust camshaft help to move peak torque lower.  The engine now generates 360 horsepower and 380 lb.-ft. of torque and is capable of towing up to a class-leading 9,800 pounds.

The new premium engine for F-150 will be the 3.5L ecoboost V6 engine, which has undergone some revisions to make it suitable for truck duty.  Final specs are not available for power and torque output yet, but should be available in about six to eight weeks.

But there's even more big news.Ford 6.2L SOHC V8 F-150 Engine
