2018 vs. 2020: F-150 Engine Changes

Back in 2018, Ford added new F-150 engine options. Then, during the 2019 F-150 lineup, the Limited trim added the high-output EcoBoost engine, which is also found in the Raptor models. During the 2020 lineup, we see that all of the F-150 engine options now come paired to a ten-speed automatic for a smooth-shifting experience.
