The Ford F-150 is already the best-selling vehicle, let alone truck, in the United States market, but that isn’t stopping the American automaker from upping the ante. The latest model of brings the return of two popular models and powertrain upgrades that will have truck fans raving. The new Ford F-150 will roar into the new model year with more power and the Raptor and STX versions in tow.
Nearly two-thirds of all Ford F-150s that leave dealership lots pack a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine. That engine gets a slight power increase of 10 hp as well as a shiny new 10-speed automatic transmission.
The Ford Raptor will also be making a return after two years off the market and fans will not be disappointed. The last Raptor we saw stocked a 6.2-liter V8 engine capable of producing 411 hp and 434 lb-ft of torque. The newest Raptor will pack a small 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine that pumps out a heart-pounding 450 hp and 510 lb-ft of torque.
The Ford F-150 STX sits between the XL and XLT trims and boasts body-color bumpers and 20-inch wheels. That model starts at $35,615, a good chunk less than the larger trims while providing more capability than the XL.
