Some things are quite a bit better the second time around. Leftover Thanksgiving turkey as a sandwich with mayo and cheese, falling in love the second time (because that first time in high school couldn’t even compare), the second job offer showing the first one wasn’t a fluke, the second marathon, watching Inception for the second time…. The list goes on.
So it’s no wonder that the second-generation 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine in the 2017 Ford F-150 is better! First, it delivers 50 pounds-per-foot more of peak torque compared to the first (470 pounds-per-foot total). What’s incredible is that this beats competitors – including diesel-powered, gas-powered and even V8 engines! And the 375 horsepower is 10 higher than the previous EcoBoost engine.
The enhancements don’t stop there. The improved EcoBoost engine has a new twin-port and direct-injection fuel strategy. It also has a redesigned variable-displacement oil pump, twin turbocharger with electronic wastegate and valvetrain components that are both lighter and stronger.
Since the Ford F-150 is the only truck in its segment to come with a twin-turbocharged gas engine, the improvements to the EcoBoost engine in the 2017 models make it top tier in its class. Ford F-150 owners will save more than 110 million gallons of gas over the next year because of more than one million F-150s with the new 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine. This second time around is making a big impact!
