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 FFV 5 Litre V8 engine


All new design, 5.0L Ti-VCT 32V DOHC V8 (petrol or E85) engine features:


8-cylinder, dual overhead camshaft, 32-valve with Ti-VCT, 87 octane (min') or E85 petrol fuelled
5.0 Litre ( 302 cu in)
92.2 mm (3.63 inches)
92.7 mm (3.65 inches)
Compression ratio
Max power
287 kW (385HP) at 5,750 rpm

Max torque
525 Nm (387 lb-ft) at 3,850 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...)

Valve gear
Dual overhead camshafts
8 in 'V' configuration

Cylinder head
Cylinder block
Roller, dual overhead cams

Four main bearings
Fuel injection
Sequential Multiport Electronic fuel injection
Lubrication system
Wet sump

6-speed automatic transmission with tow/haul mode, SelectShift capability and Progressive Range Select is standard with this engine


Key Features and Benefits:

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

• Strong, yet lightweight die-cast aluminium block

• Dual overhead camshafts (DOHC), lightweight aluminium cylinder heads with 4 valves per cylinder

• Aluminium engine block and cylinder heads help to reduce weight to aid fuel efficiency

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

• Smart charging alternator. 

• Aggressive deceleration fuel shutoff (ADFSO).

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

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

Truck-specific Features:

• New mid-lock variable cam timing enhances fuel economy while maintaining tow-friendly torque

• Cast-iron exhaust manifolds for heavy-duty operation and durability

• 10.5:1 compression ratio for improved low-speed torque and towing capability

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

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).
