The F-150 Pick-Up 0

The-F150-PickUpBack in May, Ford released the technical statistics for the next generation F-150 pick-up. Since that time, many people have been extremely excited, us included.  But with these already excellent statistics, Ford has already managed to get people into more an even bigger frenzy. This has been accomplished by releasing updated statistics. As you can expect, these statistics have only made the vehicle more powerful than it originally was.

For the next generation Ford F-150 3.5 litre EcoBoost engine extra torque and horsepower has been added, making it even more powerful than originally estimated. Originally, it was believed that the new F-150 pick-up would have 360hp and 450lb of torque. With the revision, the vehicle now has 375hp and 470lb of torque. So there has been quite an increase in these highly desired technical statistics.

The reason why added torque and horsepower has technically been allowed from an engineering standpoint is due to the creation of a new ten-speed automatic transmission. With this new transmission, the F-150 will be able to handle the added power.

The transmission will feature wide spaced gearing and three overdrive gears, Ford’s next generation pick-up will be able to maximise its fuel economy, especially on highways. But the automatic transmission has added technology which allows the performance of the pick-up to increase further. This is accomplished because the new transmission will also feature real time adaptive shift algorithms which monitor and change different power functions.

Raj Nair, Ford’s executive vice president of product development and chief technical officer, said that “the 2017 Ford F-150 now delivers the best torque in the segment… this class-leading torque arrives with a transformative 10-speed automatic that improves nearly every aspect of F-150 performance.”

We are glad that Ford did end up releasing new and improved technical statistics, as it has certainly increased anticipation surrounding the new vehicle. If only all motoring companies did something like this…
