    Wow, I would not expect a small 2.7L V6 to be putting out power like that. Ive always been questioning the V6's in the F150's but it seems its putting out more power than my dads 5.4L V8 in his F150..and 700lbs less is pretty impressive.

    Good move by ford!

    700lbs is huge! I wonder how much more the truck is going to cost with the huge amount of added aluminum.

    Damnit, I was seriously considering picking up a 2013 or 2014 3.5 Ecoboost F150 and getting a huge deal because it's the old model year. But this makes me want to shell out for a 2015 Click here to enlarge

    No kidding on the weight. And I think the cost is manageable, but they are going with some military grade strength aluminum, so perhaps that will drive up costs. There are also lots of articles on the repair aspect of it. You can't just take it to any old repair shop, which may drive up insurance costs. But dang, 700lbs will pay dividends in just about every other area (better gas mileage, less tire/brakes/suspension wear, etc, etc).

    Now if only they'd put a diesel in it...

    Looks to me like a raptor with a grill guard and some bigger tires/wheels?

    Ford announces the specs for the new 2.7 liter Ecoboost V6 making its debut in the 2015 F150 - 325 horsepower, 375 lb-ft of torque

    Excellent work here by Ford on the new 2.7 liter Ecoboost V6. Ford announced earlier this year they would invest $500 million in development of the new smaller Ecoboost V6 which will slot in below the 3.5 liter Ecoboost V6 already on the market and available in the current F150 truck.

    As stated in a previous article, the 2.7 liter Ecoboost engine is not just a downsized 3.5 Ecoboost as it has many changes:

    • First use of fracture split main-bearing caps, which create a superior fit between the cap and engine block for reduced crankshaft friction to help improve efficiency
    • All-new aluminum cylinder heads feature water-cooled integrated exhaust manifolds
    • Variable displacement oil pump reduces internal engine friction to improve fuel economy
    • Intake and exhaust variable cam timing that improves torque while helping lower emissions
    • Lightweight, durable composite intake manifold
    • Cooling jets beneath the pistons that spray oil on the pistons to help lower operating temperatures
    • Piston connecting rods use an offset I-beam that provides strength to manage peak engine power levels while reducing weight for better responsiveness
    • Cartridge-style oil filter integrated into top of the engine for easy service


    These changes allow for impressive output of 325 horsepower and 375 lb-ft of torque. The 2.7 model will also offer 8,500 pounds of towing capability in the updated F150 which is also roughly 700 pounds lighter thanks to its new aluminum frame.

    It will be interesting to see what other models in the Ford lineup get this engine and how tuners respond to it.

    ALL-NEW FORD F-150 2.7-LITER ECOBOOST V6 ENGINE DELIVERS V8 CAPABILITY AND PERFORMANCE

    Tougher, lighter 2015 Ford F-150 welcomes two new engines to its four-engine lineup, providing choices to meet almost any customer need – from hauling tools to towing trailers

    High-output 2.7-liter EcoBoost® with standard Auto Start-Stop broadens engine lineup by providing mid-range V8-like towing capability of 8,500 pounds, payload of 2,250 pounds, 325 horsepower, 375 lb.-ft. of torque

    Standard 3.5-liter V6 engine with twin independent variable camshaft timing delivers impressive power and efficiency with towing of 7,600 pounds that can't be beat, 1,910 pounds of payload, 283 horsepower and 255 lb.-ft. of torque

    Use of high-strength steel and high-strength, military-grade, aluminum alloy plus smart engineering saves up to 700 pounds, improving power-to-weight ratio and allowing for gains in towing, performance and efficiency

    With its new 2.7-liter EcoBoost® with standard Auto Start-Stop and new 3.5-liter V6 with twin independent variable camshaft timing, the 2015 Ford F-150 resets the bar in light-duty pickup truck performance, capability and efficiency.

    "The 2015 F-150 is the most capable F-150 yet, while shedding up to 700 pounds," said Bob Fascetti, vice president, Powertrain Engineering. "These two new V6 engines – the 2.7-liter turbocharged EcoBoost and normally aspirated 3.5-liter Ti-VCT – set a new standard for Ford for capability and efficiency."

    2.7-liter EcoBoost power
    The high-output, twin-turbo 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 features an entirely new design that delivers power and performance in a strong, smart package. The engine produces 325 horsepower and 375 lb.-ft. of torque – improving the power-to-weight ratio of the 2015 truck by 15 percent over the 2014 5.0-liter V8-equipped F-150 with similar torque output, thanks to vehicle light-weighting.

    The 2.7-liter EcoBoost 4x2 has a maximum payload rating of 2,250 pounds and maximum tow rating of 8,500 pounds, ideal for meeting mid-range capability needs.

    Boosting 2.7-liter EcoBoost fuel efficiency is the debut of standard Auto Start-Stop technology for F-150. This technology, specially tuned for truck customers, shuts off the engine when the vehicle is at a stop. When the brake is released, the engine restarts quickly. Auto Start-Stop helps reduce fuel consumption and emissions when the truck is stopped and the engine is off. The technology is off when towing or in four-wheel-drive mode.

    The 2.7-liter EcoBoost engine also features Ford's first use of a compacted graphite iron cylinder block in a gasoline engine, the same material used in Ford's 6.7-liter Power Stroke® turbo diesel V8 in Super Duty trucks. The composite CGI/aluminum cylinder block saves weight while providing strength where it's needed most for durability.

    Advanced technology, power and efficiency combine to create an engine for F-150 that boasts more than twice the horsepower, torque and towing capability of the Toyota Tacoma midsize pickup truck with identical displacement 2.7-liter four-cylinder engine.

    Ford testing shows the 2.7-liter EcoBoost also outperforming Ram 1500 3.0-liter V6 EcoDiesel and Chevrolet Silverado 1500 5.3-liter V8 while towing a 7,000-pound enclosed trailer up Davis Dam in Arizona. This is the same grade the Society of Automotive Engineers uses for its J2807 towing testing standards, which the 2015 Ford F-150 will follow.

    3.5-liter V6 tuned for responsive power
    Thanks to vehicle weight savings, the standard 3.5-liter V6 with Ti-VCT offers a 5 percent improvement in power-to-weight ratio over the larger 3.7-liter V6 in the 2014 F-150, with better fuel efficiency and performance.

    The 3.5-liter V6 produces 283 horsepower and 255 lb.-ft. of torque. The engine has a maximum payload of 1,910 pounds and a maximum tow rating of 7,600 pounds – unsurpassed for standard V6 light-duty pickup trucks.

    Designed for impressive power and durability, the 24-valve 3.5-liter V6 features a valvetrain with direct-acting polished mechanical buckets with twin independent variable camshaft timing for impressive torque across a wide rpm range. Six-bolt main bearing caps, a fully counterweighted forged steel crankshaft and cast exhaust manifolds are designed for heavy-duty operation.

    Both the upper and lower intake manifolds of the 3.5-liter V6 are tuned for responsive power, and both the intake manifolds and cam covers are composite-formed to reduce weight. The die-cast aluminum cylinder block features bay-to-bay breathing to reduce internal pumping losses, while a deep-sump oil pan contributes to extended oil-change intervals.

    Advanced materials save weight
    Extensive research by Ford engineers led to the use of more advanced materials on the 2015 F-150 than found in previous trucks. Military-grade aluminum alloys make the new truck's body lighter, stronger and more resistant to dents.

    Overall, F-150 is up to 700 pounds lighter – helping the truck tow and haul more, accelerate and stop faster, and operate more efficiently than the previous F-150. High-strength steel in the frame and high-strength aluminum alloy throughout the body produce an inherently stiffer truck with greater dent and ding resistance. The aluminum upper body sits on a fully boxed ladder frame with more high-strength steel than ever to make it stronger yet lighter.

    In addition to the new V6 engines, the all-new 2015 F-150 offers the proven 3.5-liter EcoBoost and the 5.0-liter V8 with Ti-VCT, providing a comprehensive, capable and efficient engine lineup to meet the specific needs of Ford truck customers.

    I hope they do an updated aluminum Raptor with the Ecoboost. I'd be all over that.
