Ford developer announces new F-150 powertrain specifications
Recently, Ford announced some details of the new F-150, including power, torque, payload and traction figures.
There are currently six powertrain options for this model, five of which are the continuation of the previous generation, and the other is a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6 hybrid engine, which is called PowerBoost.
PowerBoost provides 430 horsepower and 570 lb-ft of torque for the vehicle. This engine will be paired with a 35-kilowatt electric motor powered by a 1.5-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery.
Several other engines have also undergone some changes. The 5.0-liter V-8 engine originally had 400 horsepower and 410 lb-ft torque. After improvements, it now has 400 horsepower and 500 lb-ft torque.
The 5.0-liter V-8 engine has increased power, and his maximum payload and towing capacity have been improved. The 3.5-liter EcoBoost has the highest payload and towing capacity among all F-150 engine options.
The 3.3-liter V-6 engine will become the basic engine of the truck. The maximum payload is 1,985 pounds and the towing capacity is 8,200 pounds, which is more than enough for an entry-level truck.
The 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6 has not changed much. The 3.0-liter Power Stroke V-6 diesel engine tops the list. This engine can provide 250 horsepower and 440 lb-ft of torque.
The new F-150 will arrive at dealers in the second half of this year. The XL model starts at $30,635, and the top limited edition Super Crew with four-wheel drive retails for $75,945.
