New Ford F-150: V6 Engine with V8 Power and Performance

The 2.7 liter EcoBoost engine in the 2015 Ford F-150 is more powerful than you think!

In  recent release, Ford announced the new 2.7 liter EcoBoost engine in the 2015 Ford F-150 had “High-output… with standard Auto Start-Stop broadens engine lineup by providing mid-range V8-like towing capability of 8,500 pounds, payload of 2,250 pounds, 325 horsepower, 375 lb.-ft. of torque.” The high-output puts the new F-150 in competition with its larger competitors.

“In the truck business, it’s historically been about the most horsepower, the most towing power and the most torque,” Ford trucks marketing manager Doug Scott said.

Here’s how the 2015 F-150 stacks against the competition:

Engine Horsepower Torque (lb.-ft.) Payload (lbs.) Towing (lbs.)

2015 Ford F-150 4×4 2.7-liter EcoBoost

325

375

2,160

2014 Toyota Tacoma 4×4 2.7-liter four-cylinder

2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4×4 5.3-liter V8

11,200

2014 Ram 1500 4×4 3.0-liter V6 EcoDiesel

240

420

1,620

9,050

According to the release, the 2.7-liter EcoBoost 4×2 has a maximum payload rating of 2,250 pounds and maximum tow rating of 8,500 pounds. This stats make the F-150′s 2.7 EcoBoost engine ideal for meeting mid-range capability needs.

Aside from improved performance, the 2.7 EcoBoost engine includes an automatic start/stop feature. This feature helps conserve gas, boosting the fuel efficiency of the F-150, by turning the engine on and off while the car is stopped.

This technology, specially tuned for truck customers, shuts off the engine when the vehicle is at a stop. When the brake is released, the engine restarts quickly. Auto Start-Stop helps reduce fuel consumption and emissions when the truck is stopped and the engine is off. The technology is off when towing or in four-wheel-drive mode.

Just in case you don’t believe the power in the 2.7 Ecoboost engine, here is a video showing the power and performance of the 2015 Ford F-150 against the competition. This video shows the 2.7-liter EcoBoost outperforming Ram 1500 3.0-liter V6 EcoDiesel and Chevrolet Silverado 1500 5.3-liter V8 while towing a 7,000-pound enclosed trailer up Davis Dam in Arizona, the same grade the Society of Automotive Engineers uses for the SAE J2807 towing test.
