The fast eyes over at PickUpTrucks.com have already got spy pics of the new 2011 Ford F-150 Lariat Limited, with a 6.2 liter V8. The truck is a massive step in the opposite direction of getting smaller is getting greener, but man is it a sharp looking truck. Amazingly enough, this spy pic doesn’t even have zebra stripes or camouflage of any kind, even complete with badging.
My problem with the new 6.2 liter V8 is the serious lack of horsepower. Currently Ford has produced the 2011 Mustang GT, which has a 5.0 liter engine and produces over 400 horsepower. Yet, this new 6.2 liter produces just 411 horsepower and 434 lb ft of torque. The power gains just doesn’t seem to warrant the research and development into the 6.2.
Consider that the 2011 Ford F150 Lariat is just like previous years, it will be built in limited production. For example, just as far back as 2008 only 5,000 units were produced. Likely demand plays a small roll in this luxury pickup truck, with a small bed, but plenty of room for pasengers.
