I see that you have 2019 Ford F-150 Lariat trims in stock with the 2.7-liter EcoBoost option. What’s the hauling power like on this truck? Will its performance come at the cost of fuel-savings since this powerplant is tuned for efficiency?
Fair question, Marcus! But, rest assured, the Lariat’s 325-hp 2.7-liter offers all the power you need. To understand an engine’s specific output, you can divide its horsepower by its displacement. In this case, with the 2.7-liter EcoBoost’s 120 hp/L, it’s no wonder that this truck is often called “Pocket Hercules.” In fact, it produces more torque (400 lb-ft) than the 2019 Chevy Silverado’s 5.3-liter V8, which is nearly twice the size of the F-150’s engine. Max payload capacity on the Lariat is solid too at 2,470 lbs, while towing capacity rings in at 9,000 lbs. If you go with the 4x2, the F-150 delivers an EPA rating of 22 mpg combined and you only drop one mpg when you opt for the 4x4. The transmission on this truck is a 10-speed SelectShift automatic – as you put the pedal to the metal, it instantly selects the ideal ratio for peak acceleration from your current speed.
