Ford F150 Alloy Body,

2015 Year Model & later-Engines:


All of the Ford F150 new Alloy Body pickups that we import, 2015 Year model and later, are available with two engine options. They have either:


The all new 5 Litre 'FFV' V8 (petrol) engine, naturally aspirated,


The 3.5 Litre 'EcoBoost' V6 (petrol) engine, twin turbocharged.


 F150 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine


3.5 Litre 'EcoBoost' V6 (petrol) Ti-VCT, turbocharged engine features:


V Type, six-cylinder, dual overhead camshaft, 4 valves per cylinder, 87 octane (min') petrol fuelled
3.5 Litre ( 213 cu in)
92.4 mm (3.64 inches)
87.6 mm (3.45 inches)
Compression ratio
Max power
272 kW (365HP) at 5,000 rpm

Max torque
570 Nm (420 lb-ft) at 2,500 rpm  (for comparison the F-Series (F250’s and F350’s) that Ford sold out here between 2001 and 2006 with a Diesel engine had 600Nm of torque, and they were Diesels....)

6 in 'V' configuration

Cylinder head
Cylinder block
Direct acting mechanical bucket, dual overhead cams

Four main bearings
Fuel injection

• 6-speed automatic transmission with SelectShift capability is standard with this engine.

Key Features and Benefits:

90% of peak torque is available from 1,700 to 5,000 engine rpm

• Dual overhead camshaft (DOHC), lightweight aluminium cylinder heads with 4 valves per cylinder and direct-acting mechanical valvetrain

• Die-cast aluminium engine block is strong, yet lightweight

• Piston-cooling jets help improve oil warm-up and maintain cooler piston temperatures for enhanced efficiency and durability

• Forged-steel, fully counterweighted crankshaft for strength and durability

• Petrol direct-injection.

• Parallel twin turbochargers.

• Aggressive deceleration fuel shutoff (ADFSO)

• Smart charging alternator.

• Fail-Safe Engine Cooling System.

• Electronic throttle control (ETC) helps deliver seamless and consistent engine response

Twin independent variable camshaft timing (Ti-VCT) on both the intake and exhaust cams is continuously adjusted to keep the engine running at maximum efficiency as the engine speed and torque change, helping enhance fuel economy and performance

• Smart charging alternator. 

• Electronic throttle control (ETC) helps deliver seamless and consistent engine response

• Intake and exhaust camshafts enhanced for fuel economy and performance

• Cast exhaust manifolds for heavy-duty operation and durability

• Enhanced torque capability and durability

• Cooling system enhanced for engine coolant flow

• Intelligent Oil-Life Monitor uses actual engine and vehicle operating conditions to calculate oil change service intervals of up to 1 year or 16,000 km's/10,000 miles

Fail-Safe Engine Cooling System.

What It Is:

• A feature designed to help protect the engine from potential damage due to loss of coolant

How It Works:

• If the engine overheats, the engine will switch from normal all-cylinder operation to alternating cylinder operation

• The non-powered cylinders act as air pumps to help cool the powered cylinders

• The vehicle will continue to operate, but with limited engine power

• Driving distance is limited by a number of factors including vehicle load, outside temperature and road conditions

Key Benefit:

• Allows the driver to travel a short distance to obtain service or reach a service facility


EcoBoost Twin Turbochargers

What they are:

• A turbocharger uses otherwise wasted energy from the engine’s exhaust to rotate a turbine wheel

How It Works:

• The turbine wheel is coupled to a compressor that pressurizes air coming into the engine — this is called “boost” and allows the engine to breathe in air as if it were larger in displacement since more air is “forced” into the intake

• The more air an engine breathes, the more power it generates

Key Benefits:

• Compact design and low NVH (noise, vibration and harshness) characteristics

• Less engine compartment heat

• Turbo lag is virtually eliminated — the turbos will spool up faster than a single-turbo engine and allow the 3.5 EcoBoost V6 to reach peak power faster than a single-turbo design

• Drivers will feel an immediate response when they step on the accelerator


Aggressive Deceleration Fuel Shutoff (ADFSO)

What It Is:

• A feature which temporarily interrupts fuel delivery and consumption when the vehicle normally slows down while maintaining normal engine operation

How It Works:

• Uses the transmission to keep the engine running at low, more fuel-efficient operating level whenever possible

• Normal fuel delivery resumes when the vehicle reaches a low speed or when the driver accelerates

Key Benefits:

• Excellent driveability is maintained by Ford proprietary software that integrates this technology with powertrain operation

• Is automatic and requires no interaction from the driver

• Helps maximize fuel economy (for Fuel Economy figures, see the 'F150 Fuel Economy' section of this website).
