2018 Ford F-150 Engine Comparison Atlanta GA
We love talking about how much the new Ford F-150 improves each and every model year. And the 2018 model year is no different – except for the fact that we’re more excited than ever before. That’s because the engine lineup of the 2018 Ford F-150 is more diverse than ever, as it gives you the ability to choose between six powerful, capable and efficient engines, including, for the first time ever, a diesel engine. And we’ve got them all right here at Akins Ford near Atlanta, GA.
That means you’ve got a choice to make. It’s a fun choice, but it’s still a big decision. We’re going to be honest with you – there is no wrong choice when picking out the engine of your new Ford F-150. They are all amazingly capable and they all have what it takes to get the job done, no matter what that job may be. Still, one of the engine options might be better suited to your needs than the others, so we decided to put together this comparison of the 2018 Ford F-150 engine lineup. However, this comparison will leave out the all-new 3.0-liter Power Stroke turbo diesel engine for now, since its specs have not yet been released.
What are the Horsepower, Torque and Fuel Efficiency Ratings of the New Ford F-150 Engines?
Gas mileage is very important nowadays, and we’ll get to that in a bit, but we’d be remiss if we didn’t start our comparison by checking out the horsepower and torque offered by the five new Ford F-150 engines. Your 2018 Ford F-150 can feature a 3.3-liter PFDI V6 engine with 290 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque, a 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 engine with 325 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque, a 5.0-liter PFDI V8 engine with 395 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque, a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine with 375 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque or a 3.5-liter high-output EcoBoost engine with 450 horsepower and 510 pound-feet of torque. Each of the five powertrains can feature the segment-first 10-speed SelectShift automatic transmission.
On to fuel economy, which is best-in-class for the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 engine and its 20 MPG in the city and 26 MPG on the highway. For the other engines, the 3.3-liter PFDI V6 engine gets 19 MPG in the city and 25 MPG on the highway, the 5.0-liter PFDI V8 engine gets 17 MPG in the city and 23 MPG on the highway, the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine gets 18 MPG in the city and 25 MPG on the highway, and the 3.5-liter high-output EcoBoost engine gets 15 MPG in the city and 18 MPG on the highway.
