Ford has unveiled the new engine lineup for the 2011 F-150.
The entry-level 3.7-liter Ti-VCT V6 produces 302 hp (225 kW / 306 PS) and 278 lb-ft (376 Nm) of torque. Fuel economy is estimated to be best-in-class and the maximum tow rating is 6,100 pounds.
The 3.5-liter Ti-VCT EcoBoost V6 churns out 365 hp (272 kW / 370 PS) and 420 lb-ft (569 Nm) of torque, which is rather interesting as the 5.0-liter Ti-VCT V8 only produces 360 hp (268 kW / 365 PS) and 380 lb-ft (515 Nm). Furthermore, the EcoBoost can tow 11,300 pounds while the V8 tops out at 10,000 pounds.
Ford also offers a 6.2-liter V8 in the SVT Raptor and Lariat Limited. With 411 hp (306 kW / 417 PS) and 434 lb-ft (588 Nm) of toque, the mill can tow up to 11,300 pounds.
Besides the new engines, the F-150 is outfitted with electric power-assisted steering (EPAS) and a standard six-speed automatic transmission. Thanks to these changes, the 2011 F-150 is up to 20% more fuel efficient than the 2010 F-150.
