2018 Ford F-150, Expedition Engine Details Released

While Ford Motor Company has already shown us what the 2018 F-150 and Expedition look like, they’ve remained coy on the power figures until now. Today the company released the engine details for both new models, which includes a power boost for most of the F-150 lineup and Expedition.

Starting with the F-150, the base engine has switched from the old 3.5-liter V-6 to a new 3.3-liter V-6 with direct injection. Thanks to the addition of DI, this engine produces 290 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque, an increase of 8 horsepower and 12 pound-feet over the 3.5-liter.

Ford has also enhanced the EcoBoost 2.7-liter V-6, which now features both port and direct fuel injection. This second-generation version generates 325 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. The new torque figure on the 2.7-liter matches that of the revamped 5.0-liter V-8, which is now rated at 395 horsepower. The 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 remains unchanged both in volume models and the Raptor; that engine was redesigned for the 2017 model year.

The only remaining wild card for the 2018 F-150 engine lineup is the all-new 3.0-liter diesel V-6. Ford is still not offering us any details on this engine, other than to say it will be available in spring 2018.

On the Expedition side of things, the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 is the exclusive engine option. In base form the engine will generate 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. Buyers of the Expedition Platinum will be greeted with a slight power bump to 400 horsepower and 480 pound-feet of torque.

The majority of the 2018 F-150 lineup and the 2018 Expedition will go on sale this fall.

    Just looking at the power figures for the trucks, if Ford decided on an EB Mustang, I'd speculate 2.7L only...


    maybe eventually a 2.7EB-Stang

    but

    ASAP a 3.0T-STARstang along with electrifRied versions >> has to be total-specialty...

    3.0 TT base and then the 3.5 TT upgrade?

    I'm hoping that Ford puts the diesel in the Expedition.


    It needs to have a diesel IMO.
