Yeah that's a great video. I just wonder when they will release the actual ratings for this truck. Also I found it interesting that Ford has been using the Davis Dam area for tow test for over 30 years. And that is the place of choice for the new standardized tow tests that all the manufactures will be required to use. That bit of info should shut those TFL idiots up.

Good torque

Ford has not revealed the horsepower or torque specs for this new engine, which was designed from the outset to be equipped with automatic start/stop technology. But I just witnessed this engine on a dynamometer at Fordís testing centre in Michigan as it ramped up from idle to full throttle and stayed there. It didnít take long for the twin turbos and exhaust to start glowing red from the heat, but more interesting was the torque figure on the computer in the control room: 345 lb.-ft. from 2,500 to 4,500 rpm, which is right in the sweet spot where power is needed ó and more than the current 3.7-litre V6, while only slightly less than the 380 lb.-ft. in the 5.0-litre V8.

Ford engineers try their best to break new F-150 | Driving

Cool vid, thanks for sharing! I'll wager t hat some of these clips make it to the initial set of infomercials that Ford will use when she finally starts coming out.

Which engine setup are you leaning towards? I would imagine, with the lighter truck, the 3.5L EB will be something to behold!

honestly just imagining my `13 700lbs lighter makes me think the 5.0 will be the ticket.....but I`ve never driven a ecoboost....for my purpose however more economical is better so most likely 5.0 since its cheaper and gets better mpgs.....will be buying used though hence the reason for not being one of the first to get one

No doubt, I've only ridden in a EB powered 150, never driven one. It's impressive, but the V-8 rumble of the 5.0L, who needs a radio?!!

I hate to be the one negative person here, but I'll believe all of the claims after the new truck has been on the road for a couple of years. Every time a new model comes out the manufacturer claims it was torture tested for "X" amount of miles without any problems. But, after the production models hit the roads most of the time problems arise that should've shown up in the testing(ie. cam phaser knock,vibrations, ect.).

The new F150 is looking better every time I see one, but I'm not going to get too excited just yet.
