The EcoBoost engine, which was borrowed from the high-performance Raptor, is now installed in the TOP version of the Ford F-150 pickup.

It turns out that the 450 hp V6 EcoBoost engine, which is installed under the hood of a powerful version of the American Ford F-150 Raptor pickup, is now available for the regular F-150. Well, as for the usual – this engine can only get the owners of the most expensive configuration Limited, the initial price of which is equal to 75,000 dollars

The guys from the YouTube channel Fast Lane Truck decided to test the American novelty on a winter day in Colorado. It took less than 6 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 100 km / h, so this version of the pickup is even slightly faster than the Raptor.

According to the test participants, this is partly due to the fact that tires of smaller diameter were installed on the Ford F-150 Limited compared to the performance of the Raptor.

In addition to fairly massive off-road tires, the Raptor suspension is also optimized for off-road performance. Of course, the same thing that makes the Raptor an excellent SUV, impairs its driving performance. On top of that, the standard F-150 is slightly lighter than the Raptor, which has a significant effect on dynamic performance.

F-150 Platinum – this is the name the novelty received, has quite a few features that are simply not available on the Raptor. New LED lights, a more luxurious salon with massage seats, cooling and heating function, higher quality materials – wood and leather are used.
