Ford Releases Performance Specs For 2018 Expedition, 2018 F-150 Adds 3.3L V6 And Diesel

Ford has released performance specifications for the 2018 Expedition and F-150.

Starting with the F-150, the truck comes standard with an all-new 3.3-liter V6 engine which features direct injection. The engine replaces the previous 3.5-liter V6 and it produces 290 hp (216 kW) and 265 lb-ft (358 Nm) of torque – an increase of 8 hp (6 kW) and 12 lb-ft (16 Nm), according to Trucks.com.

Buyers looking for something more powerful can opt for the second-generation 2.7-liter EcoBoost engine which has dual port direct injection. Thanks to this change, it produces 325 hp (242 kW) and 400 lb-ft (541 Nm) of torque.

The 5.0-liter V8 hasn’t been left out on the fun as it has direct injection and spray-in bore liners from the Mustang Shelby GT350. Power climbs to 395 hp (294 kW) and 400 lb-ft (541 Nm) of torque, which is a modest increase of 10 hp (7 kW) and 13 lb-ft (17 Nm).

Ford declined to release performance figures for the new 3.0-liter Power Stroke diesel engine but the automaker confirmed it will available next spring.

A majority of the engines will be connected to a ten-speed automatic transmission and all engines will come standard with an automatic start/stop system.

The Expedition, on the other hand, will be powered exclusively by a 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine that is connected to a ten-speed automatic transmission. The engine produces 375 hp (279 kW) and 470 lb-ft (636 Nm) of torque, while the Expedition Platinum has an upgraded variant with 400 hp (298 kW) and 480 lb-ft (650 Nm) of torque.

    That’s nuts that the 3.5L Ecoboost is producing almost 500 ft.lbs. of torque. Even the 2.7L is making 400 ft.lbs. I love GM’s V8s, but I hope they have something up their collective sleeves to counter.

    400 HP and 480 lb-ft in the Platinum, plus IRS? GM is going to regret not investing in IRS when they had the chance. Heck, they probably already do. I don’t know what they were thinking.

    Too bad Ford isn’t offering the 3.0L turbodiesel in the Expedition. I think they’d sell a bunch.
