What Type Of Engine Did The First Ford F-150 Have?

(Posted on Sep 24, 2015 at 05:52AM by Lee Byard)
used ford f150 for sale new westminster bcWith the release of the 2015 F-150, Ford redefined the automotive market - offering drivers aluminum framing, best-in-class towing (12,200 lbs.), and a best-in-class payload capacity (3,300 lbs.). These elements combined for superior performance and were all powered by a 2.7L EcoBoost engine, an efficient choice for a pick-up.

Ford has forever connected its drivers to premium engine options, though. Since the F-150’s arrival in 1975, the company has been challenging expectations. According to Hemmings, the original model featured a 360-cu.-in V8, complete with two-barrel cauburetion and 143 HP.

This proved essential for establishing the F-Series. The light engine shed pounds from the F-150, turning it from a full-ton to a half-ton. This allowed the truck to circumvent the need for both a catalytic converter and leaded gasoline, with direct inspiration improving overall performance. This made it a more convenient choice for drivers - which led to high sales. 

The F-150 has consistently transformed the pick-up market, with each model boasting a new engine and a new way to experience the road.
