Ford Sells One Million EcoBoost F-150 Pickup Trucks
Since being introduced in 2011, Ford F-150 customers have purchased 1 million EcoBoost powered trucks, making it one of the most popular engine choices for the F-150. Over the next year, Ford expects EcoBoost F-150 owners to save more than 110 million gallons of gasoline and as much as $255 million in fuel costs.
Both the recently-introduced 2.7-liter and proven 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost engines have been a popular choice among F-150 buyers, making up more than 60 percent of F-150 sales. The Ford F-150 also continues to be the only full-size pickup offering turbocharging and direct injection in its gasoline engines, which helps improve fuel economy and performance.
In the fall, Ford will be introducing the second-generation 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 with standard Auto Start-Stop and an all-new 10-speed automatic transmission for improved fuel efficiency. Additional improvements to the new 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine include more peak torque than ever before with 450 lb.-ft.
“We are proving that with advanced technologies like EcoBoost and high-strength, military-grade, aluminum-alloy construction, Ford continues to outperform the competition by virtually every metric,” said Doug Scott of the Ford truck group. “EcoBoost is delivering the value, capability and performance F-150 customers insist upon, while helping improve their No. 1 demand – better fuel economy.”
