That annoys me as well. I had been considering a 2017 RCSB 2.7, but I think I'll hold off for now.
Will see how the 10 speed performs witht the 5.0.
My 5.0 2wd rcsb 16 is already a rocketship. The 6spd has already been proven to take massive amount of power like a champ. Hopefully the new planter will too. Might be tempted to upgrade in a couple of years.
Not sure why they think there is no market for that?
I see what you did there.
The new naturally aspirated 3.3-liter V-6 base engine in the F-150 makes 290 hp at 6,500 rpm and 265 lb-ft of torque at 2,750 rpm – that’s 8 hp and 12 lb-ft more than the 2017 model’s base 3.7-liter V-6 engine. The new engine features dual port and direct injection in place of the 3.7-liter’s port injection. A six-speed automatic backs the 3.3-liter engine.
The second-generation dual port and direct injected 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6 now makes 325 hp at 5,000 rpm and 400 lb-ft at 2,750 rpm. Although horsepower is the same, the torque figure is up 25 lb-ft compared to before. Dual port and direct injection has also been added to the revamped 5.0-liter V-8 engine, which now makes 395 hp at 5,750 rpm and 400 lb-ft at 3,850 rpm. Ford also added spray-on bore liner technology first seen in production on the Mustang Shelby GT350/R’s 5.2-liter Voodoo flat-plane-crank V-8. By replacing the cast-iron sleeves, the technology reduces an undisclosed amount of weight.
Power for the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6, which was redesigned for 2017, remains the same at 375 hp at 5,000 rpm and 470 lb-ft at 3,500 rpm in standard pickups and 450 hp at 5,000 rpm and 510 lb-ft at 3,500 rpm in the Raptor. Power for the all-new 3.0-liter Power Stroke turbodiesel V-6 will be announced later.
With the exception of the 3.3-liter V-6, all engines are backed by a 10-speed automatic transmission.
Ford claims that with its lightweight alloy body and more efficient new and/or revised engines, the 2018 F-150 pickup returns improved fuel economy. Estimated EPA fuel mileage will also be announced later.
I actually really enjoyed mine and loved the interior. I actually wish they would make one in the new aluminum bodies. I also got it at a much cheaper price because they couldn't give them away. If I had paid MSRP I would probably be kicking myself.True, but I never leave anything stock so I saw it as a good starting point.
