Ford might offer 3.7-liter V6 for its F-150 pick-up truck | Rpmgo.com



Great news for pick-up fans, as new rumors have started going around about the possibility of a 3.7-liter V6 engine coming to the Ford F-150, one of the Blue Oval’s most popular models and 2009 North American Truck of the Year.

The new unit will be shared with the 2011 Mustang and the Lincoln MKX, and will appear under the hood of the pick-up truck as soon as the end of the year. The offering will be one of the cheapest in the lineup, and will certainly attract fleet customers, as well as people who want a more economical pick-up.

The engine, which will likely be added to the XL and STX trim lines, although the XLT is still a possibility, outputs 305 HP and 280 lb-ft of torque in both the Mustang and the Lincoln, and while it won’t reach the economy figures of the Ford muscle car of 30 mpg, it will still be quite reasonable for a pick-up.
