The 2018 Ford F-150 power specifications are here. The updated truck gets increased power for three out of the five engines that are available. There is still no news about the sixth engine – the 3.0L turbo-diesel V6.
Base 3.3L V6
The base engine is now a smaller displacement V6, but it boasts a power increase when you compare it to the 3.5L V6 that it replaces. The engine has both direct and port fuel injection. The power rating is 290 hp @ 6,500 rpm (which is 8 hp higher) and 265 lb-ft of torque @ 4,000 rpm (which is 12 lb-ft higher).
2.7L EcoBoost V6
The “baby” EcoBoost V6 maintains 325 hp @ 5,000 rpm, but it boosts torque an impressive 25 lb-ft to a total of 400 lb-ft @ 2,750 rpm. The previous version of the 2.7L turbocharged six proved itself as a very quick truck in our 0-60 MPH testing. Now, the truck could be even faster. We cannot wait to test it.
5.0L Coyote V8
We are thankful that the V8 engine remains in the F-150 lineup. Now, it’s even sweeter. Maximum horsepower is 395 hp @ 5,750 rpm (up 10 hp when compared to the 2017 version), and total torque output is now 400 lb-ft @ 3,850 rpm (which is 13 lb-ft more).
The top-of-the-line 3.5L EcoBoost V6 remains at the same power level as before: 375 hp @ 5,000 rpm and 470 lb-ft @ 3,500 rpm. The high-output version (Raptor version) of the engine remains at 450 hp @ 5,000 rpm and 510 lb-ft of torque @ 3,500 rpm.
Here is our first look at the entire 2018 F-150 engine lineup.
