Ford Releases Power, Torque Figures For 2018 Ford F-150

For the 2018 model year, Ford went through and completely revamped the engine lineup for its best-selling F-150 pickup truck, bringing its base V6, its 2.7L EcoBoost, and its 5.0-liter Coyote V8 up to speed with the range-topping 3.5L EcoBoost, which received significant updates already for 2017.

In other words: dual injection. As of the 2018 model year, it’s now a part of every single gasoline engine in the Ford F-150 lineup, and it’s helped Ford maintain or improve power and torque even while displacements have stayed constant – or in the case of the new base 3.3L V6, actually shrunk. Official emissions and fuel-economy numbers haven’t yet been released, but the former should remain relatively constant and the latter ought only to improve, thanks in part to the 10-speed automatic that’s become standard across all F-150s save for those with the base engine.

Here are Ford’s official power and torque ratings:

2018 Ford F-150 Engine Output
Engine 3.3L N/A V6 2.7L EcoBoost V6 5.0L Coyote N/A V8 3.5L EcoBoost V6
Peak Horsepower / Torque (in Lb-Ft) 290 / 265 325 / 400 395 / 400 375 / 470
Improvement Over 2017 8 / 12 – / 25 10 / 13 – / –

Left out are the high-output 3.5L EcoBoost in the Ford F-150 Raptor, as that truck was not significantly updated for the 2018 model year, and the 3.0L turbocharged diesel V6, for which figures are not yet available.

The revamped, 2018 Ford F-150 will go on sale this fall, with the all-new diesel engine option becoming available the following spring. Stay tuned for all the latest F-150 news.
