When it comes to engine capability, Ford's all-new F-150 scores high. By providing the most upgraded F-150 engine lineup to date, the automaker makes the F-150 a shoo-in compared to other trucks on the lot. Not to mention that the 2018 F-150 also steals gold for its towing capacity, which Ford representatives claim is the best of any F-150 ever.
Just how impressive is the new F-150's engine? It makes its debut in all its standard 3.3-liter, V6 glory, with direct injection for added efficiency. The engine is also slated to procure comparable horsepower and lb.-ft. numbers of 282 and 253, respectively, which parallel that of the previous model's standard 3.5-liter V6 engine.
Trucks equipped with a 5.0-liter V8 engine will also see improvements, which are mainly attributable to the aspirated engine features that contribute to greater torque and power. A specially available 3.0-liter Power Stroke diesel engine is also an option and stands out as the first diesel engine ever offered for the F-150.
Drivers with a penchant for the EcoBoost engine will also be thrilled to know that a brand-new, second-generation 2.7-liter engine from that family is also available; it features direct injection technology, advanced dual port and more. The 2.7-liter EcoBoost engine, like its 3.5-liter counterpart, also buddies up with the segment-exclusive, 10-speed automatic transmission that characterizes the 2018 model. Overall, all the engines' bells and whistles combine to provide heightened levels of quality, output and durability.
Only a few months stand between now and when the new F-150 goes on sale this fall. Until then, check out the current selection of F-150 trucks on our lot at Sound Ford in Seattle, Washington.
