Ford finally revealed an all-new 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 and ten-speed automatic transmission in Dearborn. The new multiversion powertrain combination will first appear in the all-new Ford F-150 2017 Raptor pickup truck and then will move into the full series of 2017 F-150s arriving in dealer showrooms later this fall.

The 2017 Ford F-150 pickup truck will include the new-generation 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine as an opt, adding 30 lb-ft of torque to its output. This will mate to a ten-speed automatic transmission to aid performance and capitalize on the now best-in-class torque values of the new engine.

In terms of numbers, the new mill is a step up from the first-generation motor, providing 40 Nm more torque for a total of 610 Nm. Ford said that, the engine provides best-in-class torque for a V6, besting-diesel and petrol-powered competitors. Power here remains unchanged at 365 hp.

New turbochargers will use new, lightweight turbine wheels made out of Mar-M-247 alloy elaborated for the aerospace industry. They employ electrically activated waste gates for better responsiveness, while the engine uses hollow camshafts to reduce weight. Finally, stop-start technology will be standard on the new dual-turbo motor but will be tuned for truck use – meaning that it will deactivate when the truck is in Tow/Haul mode or when its 4 wheel-drive system is engaged.

The new 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine is a 2nd generation version of the dual-turbo, high-compression engine that debuted in the F-150 as a V8-replacing V6 option. The new 3.5L engine and its 2.7-liter EcoBoost brother make up 60 percent of the F-150′s total sales, which bucks the trend of truck buyers usually demanding an 8 cylinder engine with their pickup.
