7: F-150 Sharing With The Mustang
The F-150 has a powerful V8 engine, but the 5.0L engine has something in common with the rest of the Ford lineup. This is the same engine that is shared with the Mustang 5.0. Ford has done a lot of tuning. With such a great powerplant at its disposal, there’s no wonder the F-150 performs nicely. But if V8 power is still something you’re looking for, then the V8 will please.
The Mustang is already a special pony car and with this kind of power behind a truck, the sky’s the limit. Ford has been quietly trying to move away from the V8 scene, which makes this engine the last of the Mohicans. Its design and technology are a bit dated when compared to other engines on the market. But if you want a V8 powerplant, you can’t go wrong.
