It’s relatively efficient with a national fuel consumption rating of 12.8 / 10.2 / 11.6 (city / highway / combined) L/100 KM. This engine is available in a 4WD configuration and multiple trim packages.
Let's move along to the 2.7 L EcoBoost. This is a second-generation EcoBoost engine with dual direct and port injection; which helps reduce engine noise and increase torque. It is a twin-turbo engine capable of 325 HP and 400 lb/ft of torque. This engine provides tremendous performance in a smaller package. It’s very efficient with a national fuel consumption rating of 12.7 / 9.8 / 11.4 (city / highway / combined) L/100 KM.

It comes equipped with the same dual direct and port injection system and is rated at 395 HP and 400 lb/ft of torque. It has increased horsepower over the 2.7L turbo V6, but it has the same torque rating. The 5.0L engine, when paired up with a regular cab 4X2 8' box and Heavy-Duty Payload Package; provides a max payload of 3,270 Lbs. The 5.0L engine delivers the power and reliability necessary to get the job done. The 5.0L will also help save money at the pumps, with a national fuel consumption rating of 15.1 / 11.0 / 13.3 (city/highway/ combined) L/100 KM.
3.5L EcoBoost V6

The engine is rated at 375 HP and 470 lb/ft of torque. A potent combination of efficiency and power, the 3.5L six-cylinder EcoBoost engine allows your F-150 to maintain optimal performance at all times.The 3.5L EcoBoost also balances power and economy with a national fuel consumption rating of 14.3 / 10.5 / 12.5 (city / highway / combined) L/100 KM.

Rated at 250 HP and 440 lb/ft; the engine uses a variable-geometry turbocharger and shares its compacted graphite iron (CGI) engine block with Ford's 2.7-liter twin-turbo EcoBoost V6. Ford engineers optimized this Power Stroke pickup for durability and driveability. This engine boasts a national fuel consumption rating of 11.8 / 9.3 / 10.7 (city / highway / combined) L/100 KM.
