The different engines of the F-150 have already proven themselves in terms of work capacity and fuel economy. The new addition to the group, the PowerBoost, should surprise amateurs. Under the hood, an Ecoboost V6 engine, paired with an electric motor. It develops some 450 horsepower and over 500 pound-feet of torque, for a towing capacity of 12,000 pounds. The other Ecoboost and V8 engines are still required, depending on the version chosen.
The Ford F-150 is already recognized for its comfort and its versatile and well-appointed interior space. The new generation of the van takes the experience even further, incorporating practical and aesthetic elements. The transmission lever, for example, folds back on itself to make room for a large work table capable of accommodating a computer. The front seats fold completely flat, forming a real bed for workers to rest. The rear seats can be folded up, an option for finding lockable storage compartments.
But beyond comfort, the F-150 also aims for efficiency by focusing on technology. The presence of the new Sync4 multifunction system will maximize the use of smartphones and voice commands. FordPass connectivity will facilitate remote access to information. Workers will appreciate the presence of external sockets for the connection of tools, and the presence of rulers cut in the tailgate to facilitate measurements. A truck cut for work and pleasure!
