Thanks to three new and improved engines, the 2018 Ford F-150 is more powerful and more efficient than the 2017 Ford F-150. For starters, the new Ford F-150 can feature a smaller and more efficient 3.3-liter V6 engine that adds dual port and direct-injection technology, which means you’re getting more horsepower, more torque and better projected gas mileage than the previous 3.5-liter V6 engine. In fact, this new engine offers 290 horsepower, up eight horsepower from the old engine, and 265 pound-feet of torque, up 12 pound-feet from the old engine. Advanced dual port and direct-injection technology also helps the all-new second-generation 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 engine offer 400 pound-feet of torque, which is up 25 pound-feet from 2017. The 5.0-liter Ti-VCT V8 engine has also been optimized to offer 395 horsepower, up 10 horsepower from 2017, and 400 pound-feet of torque, up 13 pound-feet from 2017.
