New NA 3.3L V6 Base F150

The 2018 F150 will be coming with a new base model engine and it'll be a V6 that's actually naturally aspirated. It'll be 3.3L in displacement, and it'll produce 290hp @6500rpm and 265lb-ft of torque @2750rpm.

That equates to it being actually faster than the NA base model 3.7L V6 that the 2017s come with by 8hp and 12lb-ft of torque.

The 2.7L Ecoboost will also be getting a bump in power, well torque at least, and it'll put out 325hp @5000rpm and 400lb-ft of torque @2750rpm. (25lb-ft bump)

Taking a look at this site here, where I sourced the information, and you can see a bit more of the technical aspect of how they achieved this and what slight changes were made:

Big WTF right here on its bigger brother, this being a smaller application (slightly) I hope Ford didn't make the same mistake, unless this will be a super reliable and long-life pump, then I might not mind:

Quote:
Replacing the water pump is an approximate $1800.00 USD repair. This may also require the removal of the engine to replace the timing chain if any of the internal plastic guides are damaged. That will require even higher cost of repair.),

Where did you get this information from?? I tried searching the above and couldn't find that anywhere.

It was a quote I took from someone else on anther forum, just a preview of what we could expect, which as you can see is far from good. Just look up what EcoBoost engine experience is like for those with them and you'll find similar feedback.

Now that is something to take a look at and if it is a common issue, just hope it comes up while you still have warranty and not after. Seeing as it's that expensive, I'm going to assume it's an internal water pump but taking the whole engine out to replace the timing chain is a big no-no. It's much like the same problems those Audi owners have with the 4.2L V8 which is why people don't typically buy them.

part of that will depend on the model of that engine since for all we know some issues might have been addressed by time we're ready to take delivery, checking the engine code and build date could confirm that along with knowing what issues were reported.
