For the 2017 model year, Passage updated the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6, turning the wick up in both the pull and the terrifically essential torque division.
The removal may be indistinguishable, yet don't accept this is the same dependable 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 we've gotten to be usual to following 2010, as Portage claims it's an all-new, ground-up overhaul with another piece, heads, and turbos.
While Portage hasn't made accessible a thorough rundown of what moment contrasts there are between the active V-6 and the new one, Passage revealed some progressed powertrain tech it stuffed in the six-chamber.
The new powerplant components Passage's first utilization of immediate and port fuel infusion, incorporating one injector in the admission port, and one inside the barrel itself.
The new turbochargers sport lighter turbine wheels, and each turbo is overseen by another electronically impelled wastegate.
Inside, Passage says the valvetrain is beefier for enhanced solidness.
Drive hops by only 10 over the active motor to 375 hp, yet the genuine enchantment figure here is the torque, expanding by 50 lb-ft to an excellent aggregate of 470 lb-ft.
That is some genuine stump-yankin', tire-smokin, watercraft haulin' turn. This is more torque than initially publicized, as the automaker guaranteed a 30-lb-ft support prior this year.
To deal with every one of this extra push, Passage shoehorns its new 10-speed programmed transmission into the 2017 F-150.
In an uncommon move of joint effort, Portage and General Engines co-built up the new gearbox (utilized as a part of the Camaro ZL1 and reputed for the Bronco), so it wouldn't be a finished astonishment to see this gearbox discover its way into GM's trucks sooner rather than later.
The 2017 Passage F-150 hits merchant parts later this fall.
