Even the cabin is set up to facilitate productivity, plus everyday comfort. This is a truck you can love for the long term.
With four engines available in the lineup, you can get exactly the kind of truck you need. The base 3.5-liter V-6 engine is rated at 282 horsepower and 253 lb.-ft. of torque, so you can take on some hefty loads. For improved fuel economy, a 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6 engine is available. It uses direct injection and turbocharging to boost performance and efficiency. The result is a peak 325 horsepower and 375 lb.-ft. of torque.
Next up for the 2017 Ford F-150 is a 5.0-liter V-8. It delivers a peak 385 horsepower and 387 lb.-ft. of torque for an impressive experience. An available CNG/Propane Gaseous Prep Package brings a bi-fuel manifold, hardened engine intake valves and valve seats, so you can switch between alternative fuel options by just flipping a switch.

Each engine is mated to an electronic 60speed transmission with a sport and tow/haul mode. It's designed to improve power delivery and cut down on gear seeking, plus can apply engine braking when you're pulling or hauling significant weight. Trailer sway control, which can change engine output or apply individual brakes without driver intervention, is included in the standard setup. A trailer brake controller can be added, with the controls located on the dash. Two-wheel drive is also standard, but four-wheel drive can be added to any model. You can also get an electronic-locking rear differential, which can lock the rear axle completely when you get in situations where traction is especially limited.
