This engine is brand spakin new. It came out in the summer/fall last year. It was made to be put in the f-150 but ford backed out becuase they werent sure of the capabilitys. My guess from what i have read it will be in the F-150 in 5 to 10 years. Its not avaliable yet to buy. It puts out 200hp and 440ft-lbs of tourque. This engine however will be avalible in the new ford lcf.This is the specs on the LCF
Engineered and produced in North America, the new Ford LCF is designed for use in highly populated urban areas, where more and more customers are turning to tilt cabs for their general delivery, utility, recovery, leasing and rental, construction, landscaping and other vocational applications.
It’s built for customers who appreciate the tilt cab design advantages over conventional cabs—visibility, maneuverability, operating ease, overall efficiency and basic economics.
U.S. industry-standard 34" frame width and optional axle-to-frame (AF) dimensions help make upfitting easier and more cost-efficient.
Power and Performance
The Ford LCF will have plenty of horsepower (200) and torque (440 lbs.-ft.) to haul the heavy loads, climb intra-city hills, or merge onto freeways safely. Power and frame, suspension, and brake designs all contribute to a robust, Built-Ford-Tough chassis that delivers excellent maneuverability, braking and brake wear, and ride and handling.
