The new 2011 Ford F-150 is brought to you by Capital Ford, your Regina Ford Dealer. Not only with four new engines but also the F-150 rules the class in power and fuel economy. Now, the F-150 has an engine for everybody.

Built for your tough jobs our new 5.0L V8 is big on performance and fuel economy. You must be wondering like many others, “How did Ford do that?” and “What makes Ford so different?”

It all started with Ford engineering and proven technologies. Then, these engines saw thousands of hours of harsh real-world and laboratory testing. Ford engineers worked harder and longer to deliver the best line up of F-150 engines-period. This is the new F-150, the future of all trucks!

The 5.0L V8 engine is not only Flex Fuel capable but also has an estimated EPA Rating of 15.0 city and 10.5 highway L/100 KM is more fuel efficient. Helping with the improvement in fuel efficiency Ford as added an aggressive deceleration fuel shut off (ADFSO). Which will temporarily interrupts fuel delivery and consumption when the vehicle normally slows down while maintaining normal engine operation.

Not to forget the other new technology, twin independent variable cam timing (Ti-VCT). This allows the camshafts to operate both the intake and exhaust valves at different times in the combustion cycle, based on speed and load to provide optimum performance and fuel economy. With outstanding efficiency under low load conditions such as idling or highway cruising also has remarkable power when accelerating.

With an increase of 50 more horsepower compared over the 5.4L V8 in the previous years F-150. Not only the 360 horsepower under the hood will turn heads but the 380 lb-ft of torque also. For when you’ve got 10,000 lbs in the back and the light turns green, simply hit the gas. This engine will do everything and more.

This call comes from the dual overhead camshaft (DOHC), lightweight aluminum cylinder heads, 4 valves per cylinder and direct acting mechanical valvetrain. The camshaft was designed for improved low speed torque and cast iron exhaust manifolds for heavy duty durability.  With the fail safe cooling system no need to worry about this guy overheating, even under the toughest conditions.
