Ford F-150 to Get Mustang's 3.7L V6 and 5.0L V8, Plus New EcoBoost V6


Ford's 2011 F-150 will do away with its current lineup of V8 engines in the F-150 in favor of new and more efficient powerplants, which will include a base V6, the Mustang GT's 5.0-liter V8 and the company's impressive EcoBoost V6.

The base 4.6-liter V8 will be tossed in favor of the company's new 3.7-liter V6 engine, the same engine offered as standard equipment in the new 2011 Mustang. This will mark the first time Ford has offered a V6 in the F-150 since 2008. The current 4.6-liter makes 248 hp and 294 ft-lbs of torque and gets 19-mpg highway, while in the Mustang the 3.7-liter V6 makes 305-hp and 280 ft-lbs of torque, while delivering 31-mpg on the highway.

Ford's optional Triton 5.4-liter V8 will then be replaced by the smaller displacement 5.0-liter from the Mustang GT. The 5.4-liter makes 320-hp and 390 ft-lbs of torque, with a 20-mpg highway rating, while the 5.0-liter V8 in the new Mustang GT creates 412-hp and 390 ft-lbs of torque, while getting 26-mpg highway.

Ford's new twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost engine will also debut in the F-150 for 2011 and all engine options will come with a 6-speed automatic transmission.

The biggest challenge for Ford will be in the marketing department, convincing traditional truck buyers that a smaller displacement or V6 engine can do the job of the larger V8 powerplants. We wouldn't worry, as Ford has proven itself very capable over the past few years in marketing its products.

That V6 base engine sounds like a good power plant for the price. If it's getting 31 mpg with the mustang, i wouldn't be surprised to see 22-25 with the F150. Ford's making a smart move with this.

Although....it would be nice to see the 6.2 V8 in something more than the Raptor. A King Ranch F150 with it would be sa-weet!

I would bet on seeing the 6.2 in the supercrew before they are finished.
The 5.0 has the hp/tq numbers but do your really want to hear it scream at you all day as you tow your 6500# boat or 7500# traval trailer cross country?
I will say a regcab shortwide 4x4 with a 412hp 302 would be sweet.

I'm with the guys that wanna see a diesel in the F150. Guess we keep waiting till the DPF technology becomes more affordable. Those newer emissions laws are doing their best to kill the diesel market!
