Having an entry-level design, the 3.5 L Ti-VCT engine block is capable of delivering up to 288 horsepower and 254 pound-feet.

You'll only get such an output when using unleaded gasoline that has a 93 octane rating. However, this twin-turbo engine can still operate smoothly on 91 octane fuel. The Ti-VCT system is tuned to run on 87 octane fuel. Customers in Maquoketa Iowa, Ford should also pay attention to the vehicle's other powertrain features, such as the fuel delivery system.

The Ti-VCT unit generates a 10.3:1 compression ratio, and the EcoBoost system creates a 10.0:1 compression ratio. A direct acting mechanical bucket controls the timing of the valve lifters. Covered in stainless steel, the Ti-VCT engine's exhaust system uses the Quasi dual configuration. The EcoBoost powertrain has catalytic converters with the True Dual technology.
