As of March 2015, the Ford website publishes the torque specifications for all current F-150 pickup truck models. For older model years, consumers can visit Edmunds.com to find torque specifications.
For its trucks, Ford usually expresses torque as lb.-ft. at a specific rpm. In general, higher torque usually allows faster acceleration. The torque of a Ford F-150 depends on the size and type of the engine. A 2015 F-150 with a 2.7L EcoBoost V6 engine has 375 lb.-ft. at 3,000 rpm, while the 5.0L Ti-VCT V8 engine has 387 lb.-ft. at 3,850 rpm. The 1998 F-150 with a 4.2L V6 engine has 255 lb.-ft. at 3,000 rpm.
