TFLtruck has an opportunity to drive the updated 2017 Ford F-150 in Michigan this Wednesday Aug 31st.
The big news has to do with the engine and transmission. The truck gets a completely redesigned 3.5L EcoBoost V6 that now makes 375 horsepower @ 5,000 rpm and diesel-like 470 lb-ft of torque @ 3,500 rpm. The new power plant is mated to a new 10-speed automatic transmission, which was co-developed with General Motors.
If the turbocharged 3.5L V6 is not your cup of tea, the 2017 F-150 will continue to be offered with naturally aspirated 3.5L V6, the 2.7L EcoBoost V6, and the 5.0L V8 that are still paired with the 6-speed automatic transmission.
