3.5L Ecoboost Power Revealed

The 3.5L V6 will be replacing the current Ecoboost engine. This one will produce 375hp and 470lb-ft of torque. We're looking at an increase of 10hp and a staggering 50lb-ft of torque mated together with the 10-speed automatic. No numbers have been released about the towing capacity, but I'm sure this will be a beast as usual.

Anyone willing to consider this ?

Depends on the fuel economy ratings for the 3.0L. It would be the perfect truck if it has 375hp and 470lb-ft of torque paired with a fuel economy rating higher than 29mpg on highway.

towing capacity isn't my main concern since I rarely tow much of anything, everything I bring usually fits in the truck bed.

I'm waiting for more information to come out on the hybrid F150, that might have even better towing capacity and off the line power due to the electric power. Plus i'm not in a rush to get into a truck right now. Rather be patient and wait for the right long-term buy to show up in the market.

True... more information is definitely needed before I make the decision myself. There's still quite a bit of time anyhow. It does intrigue me though, that power range is pretty much what I'm looking for. I want to see what numbers the diesel puts out

Just for clarification, is the engine going to be 3.5L or 3.0L? I keep reading about the 3.0L.

This is the ecoboost, not the diesel model. The ecoboost delivers the best torque in the segment which will improve the towing and hauling allowances. Tempting numbers but it also depends on the fuel economy ratings too. Don't really want a gas guzzler.

Pickups are all gas guzzlers, some just less than others. If that's a concern, you may as well go electric. The ecoboost is supposed to be very fuel efficient and i think they plan to make it the leader in pickup fuel economy.

That's the thing you have to remember. It's like wanting a supercar that's fuel efficient.. not going to happen. Yes it's an important thing, but once it's really fuel-efficient for the segment that it's in, can't compare it to a prius

Think the 3.5L Ecoboost is going to be Ford's new benchmark for future pickup trucks? It has plenty of power, torque and it can probably tow a lot too.

Won't know for sure until we get full-on specifications of it, especially real world testing results
