Starting with the powertrain, the new engine 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 Ford, and 40 Nm additional at the top of the graph, which brings this figure up to the at 610 Nm of maximum torque at 2,500 rpm. This increased its performance and capacity of drag will make many customers do not throw out less equip a block 5.0-liter V8 in his truck as it has a large number of torques from a reduced regime of revolutions.
With 610 Nm of torque of this V6 does not include least equip a V8
The engine power is respected by providing the 365 HP of the existing model, this is because the second generation of the 3.5 V6 EcoBoost shares many components with the current. The new powertrain of time will be offered in the Ford F-150 after 2017, but the original will continue being mounted on the other models until they receive this update also.
Among the novelties of this block we emphasize that mounts new turbochargers, wastegates electrically controlled, and a turbine that is lighter that enhances the ability of response. Besides it counts with a new injection system that improves the performance and system start/stop for increasing the efficiency of the consumption.
The F-150 2017 to debut a new automatic change of ten relations
The new set also incorporates a automatic transmission, ten speeds, completely new in replacement of the current six-speed. The new transmission will provide better acceleration at the same time that you reduce the consumption with a intelligent use of the gears that adapts in real time to driving conditions.
