3.5L EcoBoost

3.5L EcoBoost

Meet the king of kings. The Ford F-150’s strongest engine is the 3.5L EcoBoost with turbocharged technology. Ford designed this V6 engine to meet the same output of a V8 with less fuel usage and lower emissions. This monster of an engine keeps 90% of its peak torque from 1,700 to 5,500 rpm, making it the best all-around choice for towing and hauling in the F-150 series lineup.

  • 375 hp
  • 470 lb-ft of torque
  • 10-speed automatic transmission
  • Rear-wheel drive (all-wheel drive available)
  • Tows up to 13,200 lbs
  • Hauls up to 3,230 lbs
  • Available on the Lariat, King Ranch, and Platinum trims

3.0L Power Stroke Turbo Diesel

Taking full advantage of Ford’s exclusive Power Stroke technology, this 3.0L turbo diesel engine is designed to provide maximum torque at lower rpms. This allows this V6 diesel engine to produce a ton of power without using a lot of fuel. Drivers who have heavy duty hauling and towing needs on a regular basis may want to consider Ford’s diesel option.

  • 250 hp
  • 440 lb-ft of torque
  • 10-speed automatic transmission
  • Rear-wheel drive (all-wheel drive available)
  • Tows up to 11,500 lbs
  • Hauls up to 1,940 lbs
  • Available on the Lariat, King Ranch, and Platinum trims

High-Output 3.5L EcoBoost

High-Output 3.5L EcoBoost

At first glance, this engine outranks the 3.5L EcoBoost. In fact, it was engineered to be an upgrade to that engine, with the “high output” moniker referring to its chart-topping specs. However, its overall performance is geared toward sport rather than work. So despite its higher horsepower and torque ratings, it has a lower towing and payload capacity compared to the regular 3.5L engine. That’s why you’ll find this engine on the off-roading Raptor and the luxury-oriented Limited.

  • 450 hp
  • 510 lb-ft of torque
  • 10-speed automatic transmission
  • Rear-wheel drive (all-wheel drive available)
  • Tows up to 11,000 lbs
  • Hauls up to 1,520 lbs
  • Available on the Raptor and Limited trims

2.7L Turbocharged EcoBoost

2.7L Turbocharged EcoBoost

This small yet powerful V6 engine takes advantage of multiple Ford-exclusive technologies, such as intercooled turbochargers and PFDI (port fuel direct injection). This gives the power of two injectors per cylinder for maximum performance.The 2.7L EcoBoost engine is made with high-strength steel--the same kind used in the turbo diesel engine--and uses automatic start-stop to save gasoline when the truck is idling.

  • 324 hp
  • 400 lb-ft of torque
  • 10-speed transmission
  • Rear-wheel drive (all-wheel drive available)
  • Tows up to 8,500 lbs
  • Hauls up to 2,470 lbs
  • Available on the base XL, XLT and Lariat trims

5.0L TI-VCT V8

5.0L TI-VCT V8

This step above the base V6 engine unlocks more power and a smoother transmission. It achieves the F-150’s highest payload capacity and can tow nearly 40% more than the base engine without costing much extra. This 5.0L V8 also takes advantage of Ford’s TI-VCT technology to control the intake and exhaust cams individually, allowing higher torque ratings at lower RPMs.

  • 395 hp
  • 400 lb-ft of torque
  • 10-speed automatic transmission
  • Rear-wheel drive (all-wheel drive available)
  • Tows up to 10,600 lbs
  • Hauls up to 3,270 lbs
  • Available on the XL, XLT, Lariat, King Ranch, and Platinum trims

3.3L TI-VCT V6

3.3L TI-VCT V6

This is the Ford F-150’s base engine, though its power is nothing to sneeze at. The naturally aspirated 3.3L V6 engine uses twin independent variable cam timing, a technology developed by Ford to optimize engine performance while maximizing fuel efficiency.

  • 290 hp
  • 265 lb-ft of torque
  • Six-speed automatic transmission
  • Rear-wheel drive (all-wheel drive available)
  • Tows up to 7,700 lbs
  • Hauls up to 1,990 lbs
