A report from Mike Levine at Pickuptrucks.com says that the same Ti-VCT 3.7-liter V6 that will power the 2011 Mustang and Lincoln MKX will also be found under the hood of the F-150 by the end of the year. Levine tells that the 3.7 will be added to the XL and STX models, though there is a chance that the XLT could also get some fuel-sipping love. A V6 pickup will be a big hit with fleet customers as well as buyers who love trucks but don’t use them for towing or hauling.
The sources didn’t quote power numbers, but since the Lincoln MKX version will reportedly produce the same 305 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque as the one used in the Mustang, the same numbers will be found in the F-series. If the 3.7 gets into the F-150, that will be very interesting combination of fuel economy and 305 hp.
