Ford Releases Official Power Details On F-150 Ecoboost


Ford's 3.5L V6 Ecoboost engine, a twin-turbo 6-cylinder engine that will go into the upcoming F-150 pickup, will put out 365 horsepower and a whopping 420 lb-ft of torque at 2500 rpm.

The 3.5L V6 may lack the outright grunt of Ford's 6.2L V8, 90 percent of the power is available from 1,750 to 5,000 rpm, while being able to tow 11,300 pounds or carrying a payload of 3,060 pounds.

While Ford says that the Ecoboost will offer class leading fuel economy, mpg figures haven't been released yet. We'll keep you posted when they're finally made public.

Just read the article in the link... It's still a gasser.

“Truck customers should think of the EcoBoost truck engine as a gas-powered engine with diesel-type capability and characteristics,” said Jim Mazuchowski, V6 engines program manager. “The twin turbochargers and direct injection give it the broad, flat torque curve that makes towing with a diesel so effortless – and hard acceleration so much fun.”

It looks like the converted a gasser into a diesel. That didn't work out to good when chevy did it. But lets face it, Ford is a lot better at what they do!

It's confusing. Seeing that article at the top of the homepage made me think it was a diesel at first too. Had to read deep in to the article to figure it out.

The throttle plate and spark plug wires say gas engine. Would like to see a half ton diesel too though.
