WESTLAND, Mich.––Finding a great deal on the truck of your dreams may be a priority, but considering the long term cost of ownership should be among your thoughts when going to purchase of lease a vehicle. Ford has been consistently innovating to bring its customers better vehicles, better features, and better gas mileage. Going further on a gas tank is important to Ford, and better fuel economy is just an F-150 away.
The 2017 F-150 models boast EPA-estimated ratings 2mpg higher than 2016 year models thanks to the new 3.5L EcoBoost engine. The 2016 F-150 offered 17/24/20mpg city/hwy/combined, and the 2017 F-150 will get 18/25/21mpg city/hwy/combined. However, this year the F-150's engine will be combined with the very first production 10-speed automatic transmission. This type of transmission will offer more smooth gear switching, enhanced performance, and a quicker 'get-up'. Better low-end and peak performance is what you'll see with the 10-speed pairing.
The all new adaptive-shift scheduling system will provide a more engaging driving experience. This is thanks to the shifting algorithms which take in real-time data from powertrain and driver control signals to ensure the right gear is being used at the right time. This will give towers and haulers more confidence. The weight-loss in the 2017 Ford F-150 is a big catalyst in the improved shifting performance. The 10-speed gearbox uses alloy and other advanced material to help the truck shed some pounds and reduced the overall packaging footprint, which is just one of the thousands of ways Ford is working to reduce, reuse, recycle, and sustain.
The fun of improved performance isn't just for the new 10-speed/EcoBoost engine pairing, it's also for the 2nd generation 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine. The new V6 will receive a boost in horsepower by 10. The total numbers for this engine actually beat out the diesel and gasoline competitors, including V8 engines. The second generation V6 can achieve 470 lb-ft of torque, and 375 hp.
