If Ford was pretty stingy with information regarding the future F-150, the manufacturer in the Blue Oval has finally unveiled the motor characteristics of its best-selling utility in the world.
The Ford F-150 2017 will have a new V6.
If the exterior design is identical to the current generation, it’s under the hood that new hide. Indeed, the truck now has a 3.5-liter V6 twin-turbo EcoBoost unit developing 375 horsepower, 10 more than the current model, approximately 637 Nm of torque, against 569 earlier. Everything will be coupled to an automatic transmission 10 co-developed by General Motors reports.
If Ford has so far not announced figures for the top speed and 0 to 100 km / h, the F-150 is expected at the level of motorization, compete with the Chevrolet Silverado and Ram 1500 Ecodiesel.
Six driving modes
In total, no fewer than six driving modes that will be proposed (Normal, Sport, Weather, Mud / Sand, and Rock Crawl Baja). These each have particular utility, to improve the crossing at best qualities and traction of the machine according to the soil and climatic conditions.
The pick-up Ford F-150 will enter into marketing this fall, and prices should be announced shortly. An F-150 Raptor about 450 horses should also land in the process, although no date have yet been mentioned by the manufacturer.
