The engine block is compromised of the same Graphite Iron used in the Super Duty PowerStroke 6. An off-road downpipe will not have a catalytic converter and will not pass emissions testing, however it will add more power than a catted downpipe and sound much louder as well. F Conclusion: It does not take very long to heat soak the stock intercooler. From the engine's beginning to November 2012, 500,000 Ford EcoBoost vehicles have been sold. The 2015 F-150 reached a major milestone in automotive history, and became the first pickup truck to offer adaptive cruise control as a safety option. Both systems will operate at cold start, which will reduce emissions that direct injection suffers to due to cold cylinder walls and lower fuel atomization.
It takes 12 consecutive dyno pulls in third gear to do this. While we could talk about the advantages of aluminum body truck vs the advantages of steel, that is for another day. No two model years are alike, which makes the prospect of purchasing a used version incredibly enticing. Obviously not one option is best for every F-150 buyer or else they would not be expanding their engine options to 5. It will be standard on the F-150 Limited and remain an optional upgrade for other trim levels. The production engines use the V6 engine block.
In 2009, Ford modified an experimental 3. Turbocharger changes include electronically actuated wastegates, turbine wheels now made with lighter Mar-M-247 super-alloy increasing responsiveness, and the same 51 mm turbine wheels but with sharper vane angles allowing boost to be increased by 2. Twin-scroll turbochargers can spool up much quicker than conventional turbochargers and will give crisp and quick throttle response backed up by significant low-end torque. This new engine will produce 450 horsepower in the Raptor, up from the previous V8's 411. The ground-pounding torque, 10-speed transmission, and aluminum body of the F-150 make this hard to beat for the high end truck buyer that demands a lot from their trucks. Every bunch is going to have its stinkers. Disconnect the air inlet and outlet plumbing from the intercooler in preparation for removing the stock intercooler from vehicle.
The underside of the pistons were also redesigned to better transfer heat into oil from the new oil squirters. Start-stop technology is also available. The engine is based on an expansion of the 1. The standard engine is a 3. The overall process is very efficient in terms of power creation and fuel economy when compared to port fuel injection.
Because it is still relatively new, buyers can expect used models of the 2015 F-150 to feature the latest technology and performance enhancements. The production engine family was officially announced at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show. Now that we have narrowed down our two favorite generations of the F-150 for buying used, we wanted to highlight a few models from those generations that we believe to be extra worthy of our attention.

The robust engine is capable of producing this power because of its strong foundation. Everyone has an opinion of Ford vehicles, and the engine always seems to be the brunt of the joke. The camshafts were made hollow for weight savings, along with the addition of a roller-finger follower valvetrain. This engine is derived from the 2. Adding fuel directly into the combustion chamber allows for more power since the fuel burn is more efficient. It produces up to 647 hp 482 kW paired with a seven-speed.
Pros: Maximum Towing with great efficiency. The 2009 F-150 was also the first year that the Super Duty style of head lamps and grilles were introduced, giving them a more modern and updated look. Certain vendors have shipping restrictions that require us to collect a handling fee for the part. Head of bolt on clamp is 8mm. With the introduction of the face-lifted 2013 Ford Fiesta, Ford introduced a naturally aspirated version of 1. The port fuel injection was partly added due to the fuel output needs on the 3.
Pros: Fuel Mileage, Instant Torque. The service procedure includes replacement of both cylinder head assemblies. All four engines are turbocharged and direct injected. Production started in April 2012. Ford also states that the new engine will bring 300 jobs to , but transfers from other plants make the actual number hard to pin down. To put this in perspective, in 2010 the base V-8 engine in the F-150 produced 292 horsepower and 320 lb.
