Gen2 3.5L F-150 (2017+)
Ford’s latest F-150 and F-150 Raptor share a common upgrade, the new Gen2 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine. Starting with more horsepower and torque than its predecessor, the Gen 2 engine embraces performance. With help from Full-Race, take the Gen2 EcoBoost engine to the next level. Improve the airflow in and out of the engine with a Full-Race Intake System and Stainless-steel Exhaust System. Bolt-on added performance with a V2 Intercooler Kit and an enlarged throttle body from BBK. Bump up the boost with bolt-on turbocharger upgrades by Precision Turbo for a stock appearance with the added airflow for an additional 100+ horsepower. Or, take a walk on the wild side with a Full-Race Freak-O-Boost Turbo Kit with BorgWarner EFR turbochargers.
The F-150 experienced a refresh in the form of a Second Generation (Gen2) 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine. This new mill and its variants power the F-150, Expedition, F-150 Raptor and the new Ford GT. For the F-150, this optional engine comes standard with a 10-speed automatic transmission. The Gen2 engine realizes an increase in output to 375 horsepower and 470 lb-ft torque. This is an increase of 10 horsepower and 50 lb-ft of torque over the first generation 3.5L EcoBoost V6. Pairing this new engine with the F-150’s lightweight aluminum body translates into improved mileage and performance.
Baddest Bird of Prey
The 2017 F-150 Raptor also received an upgrade, as Ford replaced the 6.2-liter naturally-aspirated V8 engine with a Gen2 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine boasting 450 horsepower and 510 lb-ft torque. Compared to the V8’s output of 410 horsepower, 434 lb-ft torque, the Gen2 engine produces 9-percent more horsepower and 15-percent more torque. It also boasts a claimed improvement in efficiency (15mpg City / 18mpg Hwy) over the V8 (11mpg City / 16mph Hwy). The new F-150 Raptor also benefits from the same 750-pound weight reduction that the standard F-150 enjoys, thanks to this generation's all-aluminum body.
