Fully equipped to overcome any rugged terrain, the Ford F-150 comes equipped with an array of customizable options. Featuring upgraded handling as well as smooth transitions between the highway and off-roading, the Ford F-150 is a formidable truck that is prepared for anything you may throw at it. However, in order to get the most out of your truck, it is important to examine the engine options and choose the best option for yourself.
Standard to the 2019 Ford F-150 is the 3.3L Ti-VCT V6, which generates 290 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque. This engine is the baseline for the F-150, but it is still extremely dependable and will generate plenty of power.
Next up, Ford offers choices between three efficient EcoBoost engines, including the 2.7L EcoBoost V6 with 325-horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. Then, there is the 3.5L EcoBoost featuring 375-horsepower; 470 lb-ft of torque. Finally, in this EcoBoost Range, Ford offers the High Output 3.5L EcoBoost V6 which is more powerful with 450-horsepower and 510 lb-ft of torque. As a bonus, the EcoBoost engines will provide drivers with a cleaner, fuel-efficient ride.
Ford also offers a 5.0L Ti-VCT V8 which churns out 395 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. Finally, for those who are searching for a diesel engine, a 3.0L Power Stroke V6 Turbo Diesel which delivers 375 horsepower and 470 pounds of torque is available. All in all, the Ford F-150 will have all of the gears and cylinders that you could ever need.
For all of these engines, Ford offers choices between two transmission options including the 6-speed SelectShift automatic transmission and the 10-speed SelectShift automatic transmission. The 6-speed is standard to the 3.3L V6 models while the 10-speed SelectShift comes with all of the other models. As an added bonus, each of these transmissions offer a highly-customizable driving experience with a range of various driving modes. For example, the 10-speed SelectShift transmission offers a feature known as Progressive Range Select which will enable you to constantly adapt to the environment your car is driving on.
Another important byproduct of your engine choice is the capability of your F-150 to tow. With a maximum tow-load of 13,200 pounds, the various engines can also provide a boost in the towing capacity. All in all, the strength of the F-150 is the dependable performance that the six engine options provide to drivers.
As a workhorse of a truck that is both comfortable and designed with luxury in mind, the Ford F-150 has been rebuilt and revamped from the engine up. Featuring a variety of powerful engines, the Ford F-150 leaves no doubt that it is a dynamic, reliable vehicle. While it looks
great on paper, the Ford F-150 is best appreciated in-person, and you should consider giving one a test-drive at Elk Grove Ford!
