2012 Ford F150

What year engine will work in this truck? It is a 5L engine.

The 2013 Ford F150 is considered the Twelfth Generation Truck. It was manufactured from 2009 – 2014.


In 2010 Ford shifted its electronics from a GEM (General electric module) based to the computerized and programmable BCM (Body Control Module) Allowing for fewer parts differences and programmable upgrade options from the dealer or factory. Also in 2010 Ford reintroduced the 5.0 in the F series with its new 5.0 Coyote dual over head cam TiVVT engine with 360hp.

As part of a major focus on fuel economy, the entire engine lineup for the F-150 was updated for the 2011 model year. Along with two new V8 engines, the F-150 gained a new 3.7 Liter base V6 engine, and a powerful twin-turbocharged 3.5 Liter V6, dubbed EcoBoost by Ford. An automatic transmission is the only option. Other modifications include the addition of a Nexteer Automotive Electric Power Steering (EPS) system on most models.
