Question of the Week: Should Ford have used the Lincoln Navigator EcoBoost in the F150?

The 2015 Ford F150's premium engine is a 3.5L EcoBoost V6 with 365 horsepower and 420lb-ft of torque. The 2015 Lincoln Navigator has another version of that same engine that delivers 380 horsepower and 460lb-ft of torque.

Do you think that Ford should have used the Lincoln EcoBoost V6 in the new F150? Make your pick in the poll above and tell us why you feel this way in the comments below!

Assuming you used the premium fuel that the Lincoln requires, I'd guess you'd be pretty close to getting the same power in an F-150.

It's the exact same engine Patrick but with different fuel requirements.

The Above posters are correct.
And to answer your question, I don't think it would be wise to put the Lincoln tune on the F150, as I think most owners like the option to run low-grade fuel. I certainly do.

Lincoln Tune EcoBoost

My concern is having to use premium fuel all the time with a more powerful tune on 3.5 EcoBoost in F 150. The tune now of 365 HP / 420 lbs Torque is great on regular gas.

Considering Car & Driver took a Loaded Platinum SCrew 4x4 w/ 3.5 EB from 0-60 in 5.6 and the 1/4 mile in 14.4, I'd say the current version is plenty powerfull without the need to run Premium gas.

And probably just a little bit of marketing hype for best in class horsepower and torque!

I bet just flashing the ECU on a F-150 would render the same if not better numbers, I think the guys are right, lower octane is better for most users.

Throw a tuner on there and I'd bet you'd get the same thing.
