The new turbo V-6 Ford is adding to the 2017 F-150 will provide even more power than initially expected, Ford has announced.

The 3.5L EcoBoost V-6 that powers the truck produces 375 hp and 470 lb.-ft. of torque for a gain of 10 hp and 50 lb.-ft. over the outgoing 3.5L EcoBoost. In May, Ford said the engine would produce 450 lb.-ft. The engine will provide more power than many V-8 truck engines on the market.

For the first time, Ford is pairing an F-150 engine with a 10-speed automatic transmission so the truck provides improved acceleration and performance.

The 2017 F-150 goes on sale in the fall.
