From the deep, guttural rumble at idle, to the wide-eyed force of torque in acceleration, this engine is all about performance. It delivers 435 horsepower* and 400 lb.-ft. of torque* – that’s increased horsepower and torque vs. the fifth-generation vehicle. The engine is intended to maximize power generation from every compression, with large intake and exhaust valves, cylinder heads that feature high-flow ports and intake and exhaust camshafts that have impressive lift. And the icing on the cake – the 5.0L exhaust delivers a more powerful acoustic experience.
Using fewer components than a traditional damping system, the MagneRide™ Damping System shields you from rough road surfaces while at the same time reducing body roll and improving road feel. When motion sensors detect a bump, pothole or obstacle, magnetic energy is automatically adjusted to provide optimal damping for both comfort and control. It all happens faster than the blink of an eye.

BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert
The available BLIS® with cross-traffic alert10 helps make driving more convenient.
