Availability dates, HP and Torque

"the new 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 engine is expected to produce the same 365 horsepower as the outgoing version, but with 450 pound-feet of torque?an increase of 30 lb-ft."

The new engine and transmission combination will become available in "mid- to late-October," according to The Detroit News.

It will be standard on the high-end Limited and performance-oriented Raptor models, and optional on other trim levels, said Doug Scott, Ford's truck group marketing manager.

Pricing will reportedly increase by a few hundred dollars compared to the previous 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine and six-speed automatic

That's actually not bad for a more powerful EcoBoost. May as well go with the 2017 model if it's really that affordable.

that increase isn't even anything to be concerned about, it's just typical year to year increases in price that happen across the industry, it's how they can keep up with inflation and the markets, and surely big increase in price every few years will cause some concern, so incremental is the way to go.

Love this forum, but it's a bit behind the power curve.


Let me help with that...

Thanks for posting that, seems authentic and not like something someone mocked up to look like it came from Ford. I'm sure if we dig deeper we'll be able to connect the dots that will in some ways verify those numbers.

Lots of shows coming up this time of the year, not much longer till we start seeing more.

I have ordered a 2017 raptor but own a 2015 F150. The weight difference is huge in how it handles compared to my 2012 that was same truck but not the new aluminum body. Add in 65 hp over my 5.0 and 130 ft lbs and the new Raptor should be a blast to drive and very quick.
