A Closer Look at the New Base V6 of the 2015 Ford F150
The 2015 Ford F150 is promised to be the most efficient and the most capable half ton Ford truck of all time and a big part of those lofty goals is the lineup of powerful engines. The 6.2L V8 is gone, leaving the 3.5L EcoBoost V6 to serve as the top of the line engine while the 5.0L V8 is the only eight cylinder engine in the mix right now. A new 2.7L EcoBoost V6 will offer solid horsepower and torque for those more fuel economy minded buyers without compromising capabilities and the new 3.5L V6 will serve as the base model engine for the next generation F150.
We don’t have specs yet for the 3.5L EcoBoost V6 or the 5.0L V8, but Ford offered up the first specs for the new 2.7L EcoBoost and the 3.5L V6 earlier this week. I was so focused on the new EcoBoost that could further push the 5.0L down the take rate ladder that I totally skipped over the new base model V6…so today we take a look at that new entry level engine.
