Nevertheless, if this EcoBoost engine can’t make enough power, then V-8 is there to improve specification numbers. New Lobo could make 400 hp with it. But, another possibility is object of rumors. That is new 4.6-l V-8 drivetrain. Connected to a 6-speed automatic transmission, engine is capable to produce 400 horsepower and 430 lb-ft of torque. Another advantage of this unit is better fuel economy and smoother ride.
