Doing something the right way often has several benefits. For example: the transition from steel to a high-strength, military aluminum alloy in the F-150 body. Hardening of aluminum alloy by heat treatment provides greater strength. Working with aluminum alloy also allows designers to increase thickness if necessary to achieve extra strength without increasing weight. The more powerful F-150 weighs up to 317 kg less than previous generations, resulting in a higher power-to-weight ratio, better fuel efficiency, and available payloads in its class.
The affordable V6 3.5L Ecoboost engine provides excellent performance and capabilities of the classic eight-cylinder engine: 5,900 kg of traction - great news if you pull a lot at work or for recreation. Possibility of loading up to 1500 kg and 400 horsepower at 6000 rpm and 680 N / m of torque already at 3250 rpm. This legendary Ecoboost Ford V6 with a 10-speed transmission provides everything you need, plus the best maximum payload in its class, up to 1,500 kg. Experience a rugged 400 horsepower and 680 N / m of torque, with highly sophisticated double independent variable cam timing (Ti-VCT), as well as the Ford Fuel Injection and Direct Injection (PFDI) system with two injectors per cylinder - one in the air intake, the other inside the cylinder - to increase performance.
The F-150 EcoBoost®, V6 and diesel engines deliver power through an advanced 10-speed automatic transmission. Compared to a 6-speed, 10-speed transmission delivers improved overall performance with increased acceleration at low and medium speeds. Features include optimized wide-span spacing, drag reduction and three-speed gears. In addition, you can choose from optional modes: Normal, Tow-Haul, Snow-Wet, EcoSelect and Sport.
The fully "boxed" frame is made of more strong steel (up to 78%) and larger cross-sections than the frame in the previous generation. And while this frame is stronger and stiffer, it's also lighter by up to 27 kg, as many components are made using a state-of-the-art rolling process that minimizes weight.
