Did a little lookin on the ford website,,, http://www.fordvehicles.com/trucks/f150/

Horsepower (SAE net@rpm) 3.7 = 302 @ 6500 Ecoboost = 365 @ 5000 New 5.0 = 360 @ 5500 6.2 = 411 @ 5500
Torque (lb.-ft. @rpm) 3.7 = 276 @ 4000 Ecoboost = 420 @ 2500 New 5.0 = 380 @ 4250 6.2 = 434 @ 4500

Don't need to over-state the obvious, but the Eco puts out A LOT of TQ down low, more than just about any other 'produced for the general masses' OEM V-8 does at 2500 rpm,

Another interesting bit of info,,,, Read up on the new 5.0 in the Mustangs,,, They are only rated at 412 HP, but folks are getting 375+ RWHP straight off the showroom floor,,,,

This means one of 2 things,,,, Either Ford has the most efficient drivetrain on the planet, or the 5.0 is putting out significantly more than to 412 HP,,,
good post. it's really cool how far turbo tech has come. I think the 412 HP rating may be on the low side. 5.0 and MMFF both dyno'd 2011 stangs in the 36_ rwhp range. either way it's an amazing motor.

For the longest time, myself included, the thought of a 'small' diesel engine in a 1/2 ton truck was perhaps thought to be the 'way to go' regarding power and economy. Perhaps a 'torque-y' I-6 or maybe even a V-8, but the thought of a turbo 6 gasser never entered my mind...

And initial purchase price on the 'Eco' engine is relatively 'cheap', too! As told to me at the Ford 'drive-f-150' event, the Ecoboost is a $500 'upcharge' from the 5.0. In the world of new vehicles, 500 clams is virtually 'nada',,, (Watch that upcharge get bigger and bigger as time goes by and the Eco gets more miles under it's belt!)


There's more info on the Ford site about the Ecoboost,,,, It indicates they'll have a 2.0 version out soon for the Explorer,,, and they plan on having an Eco-boost engine of some sort available for 80% of their line up by 2013.

That's A LOT of turbo's!!!

I beat a 2010 5.0 in the 1/8 2 weeks back i dont think th guy could drive for crap though. I kept up with another one on the street i dont think they are all that they are cracked up to be. Motortrend has the Mustang at a 13.5 in 1/4 and 8.5 in the 1/8.

a 2010 or a 2011? there is a big difference...the 10s are 4.6 liters (315hp) and the 11s are 5.0 (412hp) the 11s are running in the 12s with just exhaust, CAI and tune.

edit: Ramtex, I wasn't trying to take anything away from your truck and times.

Talk about it and discuss it i would really like to hear what everyone thinks and knows that i might not!
I think they'll just up power cause Ford hasn't been good with truck motors in the past. The current 5.4 makes 310, what a dodge 4.7 makes. And the new 6.2 will make about 415 compared to our 390 which the 5.7 can easily make up without extra displacement

I know this is an old post but does anyone have any solid information as to whether or not the 2012 RAM is getting the 8 spd tranny? I am due for a new truck and would wait to go the Dodge route again if it was known for a fact that early 2012 model year was getting the 8 speed trans. I saw where they announced tht 6 bangers were getting it but I could care less about them. I need to know what the Ram 1500 is getting and when.

Subject should Read 6.2L

Ford introduced the 6.2 in the Raptor a high performance 1/2 Ton. I purchased a 2011 F250 with the 6.2L engine believing that they had worked out all of the bugs on the Raptor. I suspect that Ford lowered the torque range when they put the 6.2 in the F250. When my engine popped a lifter in September it was in dealer for 6 weeks, 4 days. 2d time it was only in for 2 days and they applied a TSP to correct the rocker shaft.
Bottom line is the engine and transmission are tailored to the application and there are trade off for multiple application. A truck built to haul an 8000lb trailer will not get the same mileage as one built to look good when you pick up groceries.
BTW, full refund from Ford on F250, Ram 1500 to ship next week. I'm going to stay with proven technology. I'm not a product tester on my dime.
This is only my 2d Fiat/Chrysler product. My 1st was a Fiat Ducato Panorama and it was a darn good van.

Maybe in the 1500's, but not the HD's.
