Ford has officially released the performance specifications for the new 3.5 liter EcoBoost V6 engine that will equip the 2017 Ford F-150. The car is set to go on sale this fall and the engine deliver 375 horsepower and a 470 pound-feet of torque, an increase of 10 hp and 50 lb-ft over the previous-generation 3.5-liter EcoBoost unit.
According to Ford, the new engine’s torque figure beats "all diesel- and gasoline-powered competitors, including V8 engines with nearly twice the displacement of the EcoBoost V6." Sound pretty good, huh?
The new unit has new turbochargers, electrically-controlled wastegates, and a lighter turbine wheel with an increased responsiveness. For a lower fuel consumption, the engine comes with a start-stop system and with an all-new dual-direct and port fuel-injection system.
According to Ford, the new unit will be available with the all-new 10 speed automatic transmission. The gearbox is set to replace the previous six-speed automatic gearbox and should cut down on trips to the pump.Source: Ford
