We’re already eagerly anticipating the 2015 Ford F-150 here at your local Ford dealer. By all accounts, it’s going to be a remarkable truck, and we’re sure it will impress consumers with its power, toughness, and performance. And the best part is, we’re constantly hearing something new about this soon to be released truck that gets us even more excited. Today’s big news is about the two V6 engines that will be featured in this new model.
The 2015 Ford F-150 will feature two new V6 engine options, giving drivers more ways than ever to find their perfect mix of power and efficiency – and the V6 options hold up on both these fronts. The standard 3.5 liter V6 engine features twin, independent variable camshaft timing, and gives drivers 283 horsepower and 255 pound per foot of torque – power that translates into a 7,600 pound towing capacity and over 1,900 pounds of payload. But it gets better! The 2.7 liter EcoBoost V6 option, which has an Auto Start-Stop, delivers power more commonly associated with a V8 engine. The impressive 325 horsepower and 375 pound per foot of torque means drivers of this efficient little engine can have a truck boasting a staggering 8,500 pound towing capacity and an awesome 2,250 pounds of payload.
These smaller engines can pack a punch in the 2015 Ford F-150 thanks to its innovative frame design. Using high-strength steel and military-grade aluminum alloy, the hardworking Ford company engineers created a truck that is 700 pounds lighter than its predecessors! No wonder consumers can expect the 2015 Ford F-150 to be the ideal blend of efficient and powerful. For Louisville, Lawrenceburg, and Frankfort drivers looking forward to this remarkable Ford truck, Shelbyville is your destination! Here at O’Brien Ford, we can’t wait to welcome the 2015 Ford F-150 to our lot. Just visit us later this year when it has arrived, and our staff will have you test driving this incredible vehicle as soon as possible.
