Report: EcoBoost F-150 Will Get Added Torque

Ford has already publicly announced that it will equip future F-150 models with the company's new EcoBoost V6 engine, but now we have word that, in the truck application, there will be an increase in torque. With twin-turbochargers and direct injection, the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 already makes 365-hp and 350 ft-lbs of torque.

According to Dan Kapp, Director of Advanced Powertrain, Engineering and Research at Ford, that torque number will go up, due mostly to the more efficient layout of the F-150. With added space to develop a more free-flowing exhaust setup, as well as a truck transmission that can handle serious amounts of torque, more low-end grunt will be a part of the package. Impressively, the EcoBoost motor already makes 300 ft-lbs of twist at just 1500 rpm. Kapp made the comments during a technology seminar at the Ford Advanced Technology Center in Dearborn, MI, but wouldn't speculate on exactly what sort of numbers the EcoBoost F-150 would put out.

The EcoBoost F-150 is expected for the 2011 model year.
