Power and Handling
3.5L ECOBOOST® ENGINE WITH 10-SPEED TRANSMISSION
The 3.5L EcoBoost® delivers a 12,200-lb. maximum tow rating* and proven performance in over a half-million F-150 pickups. It delivers best-in-class torque** for a V6 engine, beating out its gasoline‐ and diesel-powered competitors. All-new turbochargers deliver more boost thanks to improved twin turbos and a lighter turbine wheel. It also comes paired with an all-new 10-speed transmission, which delivers improved acceleration and performance compared with previous six-speed automatic transmissions, thanks to optimized wide-span gear spacing, coupled with drag-reduction actions. Three overdrive gears and a wider ratio span enable lower-numerical rear-axle ratios to help improve fuel efficiency at highway speeds.
BLIS® WITH CROSS-TRAFFIC ALERT AND TRAILER COVERAGE
Available BLIS (Blind Spot Information System) with cross-traffic alert and trailer coverage* is now offered on the F-150. BLIS signals you in the outside mirror when a vehicle is detected in a blind spot ‐ and provides coverage for the truck you're driving as well as the trailer you're towing. The cross-traffic alert feature can detect a vehicle passing behind when you're slowly backing out of a driveway or parking space.
