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.
