Dearborn, Mich. - With
its new 2.7-liter EcoBoost® with standard Auto Start-Stop and new
3.5-liter V6 with twin independent variable camshaft timing, the 2015
Ford F-150 resets the bar in light-duty pickup truck performance,
capability and efficiency.
2.7-liter EcoBoost power The high-output, twin-turbo 2.7-liter EcoBoost
V6 features an entirely new design that delivers power and performance
in a strong, smart package. The engine produces 325 horsepower and 375
lb.-ft. of torque – improving the power-to-weight ratio of the 2015
truck by 15 percent over the 2014 5.0-liter V8-equipped F-150 with
similar torque output, thanks to vehicle light-weighting.
The 2.7-liter EcoBoost 4x2 has a maximum payload rating of 2,250 pounds
and maximum tow rating of 8,500 pounds, ideal for meeting mid-range
Boosting 2.7-liter EcoBoost fuel efficiency is the debut of standard
Auto Start-Stop technology for F-150. This technology, specially tuned

Duty trucks. The composite CGI/aluminum cylinder block saves weight
while providing strength where it’s needed most for durability.
Advanced technology, power and
efficiency combine to create an engine for F-150
that boasts more than twice the horsepower, torque
and towing capability of the Toyota Tacoma midsize
pickup truck with identical displacement 2.7-liter
