There is the 5 liter V8 and the 3,5 liter EcoBoost V6 engine. Also a V6 is the 2,7 liter EcoBoost engine. with start stop. This small engine gives the same power as some of the older V8 models. All models with the new EcoBoost engines have an electric Active Grille Shutter that gives better aerodynamics when closed.
