That puts all three half-tons from Detroit at the same 7,600 maximum tow rating for their naturally aspirated V6 engines. As for the new 2.7-liter EcoBoost, it has no direct competitors, though its power numbers are shy of GM’s 5.3-liter V8 by about 30 hp but just 8 lb-ft of torque.

Weight savings are also huge on the 2015 truck thanks to the extensive use of aluminum, and Ford says that a 2015 F-150 Lariat weighs 732-pounds less than than a 2014 F-150 Lariat, tipping the scales with a 4,942-pound curb weight.

Information of the larger 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost and the naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V8 haven’t been released.
