I would think that the torque should be the same as the earlier models. Ford sent me a revision to my owner's manual that revised the lug nut torque up from 100 ft-lb (IIRC) to 160-170 ft-lb. Check your owner's manual. It should be in there.
Don't guess. You might not want to see one of those wheels passing you on the highway. [img]/forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/eek.gif[/img]

You screwed up. Increase the torque before you lose a wheel.
For my '99.5, Ford says a minimum of 155 lb/ft if you are unloaded and a slow poke. But when loaded or going faster, you need 165 lb/ft. Since I'n never unloaded and certainly not a slowpoke, I have mine set at 165 lb/ft.
But for the later models, Ford simply says 165 lb/ft:
My Sierra Blanca in the sig pic was a great pickup for 11.5 years. I sold it a coupla years ago. I drove a hand-me-down 2003 F-150 SuperCrew 4.6L 2V for a while, but it was unacceptable for towing more than a rowboat. Replacement is a 2012 F-150 EcoBoost SuperCrew Lariat that tows my 5,000-pound TT like a dream.
