Ford’s Engine Line-up for 2013

Tuesday, October 9th 2012. | 2013 Ford F-150, Reviews

One of the main reasons why the Ford F-150 has proven itself to be the best truck out there, a fact that has been confirmed by the class-leading sales of the F-150 over the years, is the choice of engines that Ford has made available with the truck. Whether you look for something that gives really good mileage or considerable power or both, the range of Ford engines available in the Ford F-150 have much to offer.

The entry level engine available in the Ford F-150 is the 3.7 litre V6. This engine is good for 302 horsepower and 278 foot pounds of torque. It is fair to say that this engine is strong enough to cater to the needs of most Americans; it allows a maximum towing capacity of an impressive 6700 pounds. Furthermore, the all-aluminium 3.7 liter V6 F-150 offers better mileage than the other trucks. The two wheel drive models with this engine have a fuel economy of 17 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway. As for the four wheel drive version, the city and highway economy are 16 mpg and 22 mpg respectively. This engine can also run of on environmentally friendly ethanol (E85).

Next in line, as far as V6 engines are concerned, is Ford’s EcoBoost 3.5 litre V6. This is the engine that is giving the F-150’s competitors nightmares and is making them come up with their own turbocharged V6s that offer power and economy like the Ford EcoBoost V6 does. This all-aluminium direct injection turbocharged V6 produces 365 horsepower and 420 foot pounds of torque, enough to have a maximum towing capacity of 11,300 pounds. The 3.5 liter EcoBoost V6 does a very impressive 16 mpg in the city and  22 mpg on the highway with two wheel drive and 15 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway with four wheel drive.

Every American truck must have at least a couple of big V8s to offer and the magnificent F-150 is no exception to the rule. The Ford F-150 offers two V8s to choose from. The first and the smaller one of the V8’s is the 5.0 liter V8. Made entirely out of aluminum, it is capable of producing 360 horsepower and 380 foot pounds of torque, enough to tow a maximum of 10,000 pounds. Compared to other V8s, this 5.0 litre electronic injection V8 has great fuel economy and does 15 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway with two wheel drive. As for four wheel drive, this v8 manages 14mpg in the city and 19 mpg on the highway. The 5.0 liter V8 also runs on ethanol (E85).

Ford’s 6.2 liter V8 engine is the biggest and strongest engine Ford has to offer with 411 horsepower and 434 foot pounds of torque. The electronic injection 6.2 liter V8 is capable of towing 11,300 pounds and also enables the F-150 to have incredible acceleration. The 6.2 liter V8 manages a fuel economy of 13 mpg in the city and 18 mpg on the highway with two wheel drive and 12 mpg in the city and 16 mpg on the highway with four wheel drive. This engine has an engine block made out of cast iron and a cylinder head made out of aluminum. It is available in range topping models such as the F-150 Limited and the awe-inspiring Ford SVT Raptor.

Ford offers a rather efficient and suitable electronic six speed automatic transmission with tow/haul mode with all of its engines.
