New Jersey business owners like you choose the Ford F-150 as their truck for many reasons including its reliability, features and capability. The latter will be even better for 2017 thanks to the use of an all-new 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine.
The second-generation 3.5L EcoBoost V6 replaces the one being used in the current Ford F-150 to make driving down Central NJ streets and highways like 78, 287, 46 and the Parkway even smoother. With that being said, let’s delve into what this engine gives you.
Benefits of This 3.5L EcoBoost V6
First, let’s talk about the enhancements made. The EcoBoost engine in the 2017 Ford F-150 is capable of delivering 375 hp & 470 lb/ft of torque, which is 10 hp more & 50 lb/ft greater than the previous 3.5L V6.
The torque is actually the highest in its class. That includes the torque offered by both gas & diesel engines, as well as the V8s on the market.
This engine comes standard with start-stop technology, which helps reduce emissions and save fuel by turning the power off when you’re not actively using the engine. Examples of this include sitting at a red light or getting into a traffic jam on the highway.
Being paired with this V6 is a first for any automaker: 10-speed automatic transmission. This transmission works with the EcoBoost engine to provide improved acceleration and overall driving performance.
This includes superior low-end and peak engine performance, which makes the 2017 F-150 a great choice if you haul heavy payloads in your truck’s bed for the job or if you’re towing heavy trailers filled with special equipment you might not need every day.
