With its many advances in engineering, the Ford manufacturer has always succeeded in designing innovative drivetrains, outdoing by far anything that is being done on the market. Its F-150, for instance, is well known for being at the fore-front of technology, and not only because of the technological and safety characteristics that it offers, but also for the performance it proposes. And the 2017 model is no exception to this rule, since its 3.5L V6 EcoBoost motor is literally revolutionary. As a matter of fact, not only is it the sole gasoline engine with double turbo charger found in the belly of a truck such as the F-150, but it is also the one that offers an unequalled torque in its category.
Why is this Second Generation Motor an Innovation?
According to Mr. Raj Nair, Vice-president and Director, Products Conception, and head of the Ford technical division, “The 2017 Ford F-150 produces the best torque in is category. This torque comes with a 10 speed automatic transmission that improves practically all the aspects of the truck’s performance.” As a matter of fact, the 3.5L V6 EcoBoost motor that drives the F-150, paired with its new efficient gearbox, generates incredibly improved power and acceleration. More precisely, it now develops 375HP and 470ft-lb of torque, which represents 10HP and 50ft-lb more than the first generation of the EcoBoost motorization.
More Powerful, More Performing
By producing the best torque in its category, the 3.5L V6 EcoBoost motor opens a vast array of new possibilities for the consumer to the extent that it can now tow much heavier loads than its predecessor. Besides being able to meet the various challenges that you can come up with, its impressive 470ft-lb of torque allow it to quickly resume its speed when you restart after a complete stop or when you shift from one gear to the next. Thanks to Ford’s innovation, you can accomplish all your tasks without problem!
Finally, thanks to its 3.5L V6 EcoBoost new generation motor, the 2017 F-150 is able to exceed the expectations of the most demanding consumers. Whether you need to tow a boat, a camper or a trailer, it will have no difficulty in meeting all the tasks you ask for with ease.
