Maybe I was too accustomed to the outgoing model. That last F-150 was innovative with its aluminum cab and bed bolted on top of a stronger frame. Then, you have not one, but three EcoBoost V6s engines, along with a diesel and a well-balanced V8 to the lineup. And, let’s not forget about the Raptor! Even with fewer cylinders and two turbochargers, the Raptor lived up to its mission of its original V8 icon, and rightfully so.
