Of course, it doesn’t hurt that the new F-150 also offers a wide range of potent engines:
3.3L Ti-VCT V6: Generates up to 290 hp and 265 lb-ft of torque.
2.7L EcoBoost V6: Generates up to 325 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque.
5.0L Ti-VCT V8: Generates up to 395 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque.
3.5L V6 EcoBoost: Generates up to 375 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque – upgrade to the Raptor for the 450 hp and 510 lb-ft of torque output.
Power is refined through a leading 10-speed automatic transmission to deliver pitch-perfect performance whether passing on the highway between Hayward and Cumberland or hauling heavy loads from standstill in Rice Lake.
Speaking of heavy loads, the Ford F-150 can haul and carry more than any competing half-ton:
To put that in perspective, the 2018 Toyota Tacoma only tows up to 6,800 and the Ram 1500 offers up to 10,640 pounds. Even the Chevy Silverado falls short with a maximum tow rating of 12,500 towing.
