2017 Ford F-150 3.5L EcoBoost Torque Boosted to 470 LB-FT

Ford has boosted the output of its turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine for the 2017 F-150 up to 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. 

That is an extra 10 hp and 50 lb-ft of torque compared to the current version of this powerplant. Not only has power been boosted, but the engine has also been paired with a new 10-speed automatic transmission that Ford says helps provide more low-end and peak performance.

These numbers give the F-150 the most torque in the half-ton segment, outgunning Chevy’s 6.2-liter V8 by 10 lb-ft of torque.

Ford now sells more than 60 percent of its F-150s with EcoBoost turbocharged engines, two of which are offered with their half-ton pickup, the aforementioned 3.5-liter V6 and a smaller 2.7-liter V6.

Though Ford did not specify, this engine will presumably also act as the powerplant in the new F-150 Raptor, Ford’s hardcore off-road variant of its pickup.

The new 2017 F-150 will hit dealerships this fall and more details on the truck will surely arrive before launch.

    These improvements are taking an already great engine and making it even better. The three-five EcoBoost hauls and now it’s going to be even more capable.
