F150Ecoboost.net - Ford F150 Ecoboost Forum

Nov 14, 2012 - 2:53 PM - by STdan


Welcome to F150Ecoboost.net , the premier Ford F150 Ecoboost Forum dedicated to all Ford F150 Ecoboost owners and enthusiasts.

While researching F150 Ecoboost trucks on the Internet I noticed there wasn't one solid source of information for these new Ford Trucks. Sure, there are plenty of great F150 Forums that covered every make and model, but when it came to the new twin turbo F150 there wasn't a "goto place" for the information I was looking for. A few months later I purchased my first Ford Truck, a 2012 Ford F150 FX4 with the 3.5 liter Ecoboost motor and F150Ecoboost.net was born! We aim to be a friendly, educational community dedicated to everything about the 2011-2013 F150 Ecoboost line of Ford Trucks.

How the 2016 Ford F150 is Getting Sportier

In an effort to continue to satisfy those new truck buyers who like to go fast, the 2016 Ford F150 will include a new Sport Mode that has been borrowed from the 2015 Ford Mustang – bringing with it quicker shifts and rev-matching for a more engaging driving experience from the 2016 F150. Patrick Rall reports on the new sporty features of 2016 F150 at TorqueNews.com.

While there are plenty of Miata owners out there who couldn’t possibly imagine why someone would want a Sport Mode in their half ton pickup truck, I own a tuned half ton pickup with around 400 horsepower and I love the idea of the 2016 Ford F150 Sport Mode. In my own truck, one of my key complaints was the soft shifts and while I was able to fix that problem with an aftermarket tuner, 2016 F150 owners will be able to stiffen up the shifts with the push of a button.


2016 F150 Sport Mode
The new Sport Mode in the 2016 Ford F150 was borrowed from the 2015 Mustang, but it works in much the same way as the Tow/Haul Mode, except it is specifically tuned to optimize performance. In Tow/Haul Mode, transmission shifts are delayed a bit, allowing the engine to remain in the peak torque range for smoother pulling – especially when pulling out from a stop. Sport Mode works in a similar way, stretching the gears out for optimized acceleration while also shifting more quickly from gear to gear. Sport Mode will also hold a gear longer when the driver lets off of the gas for a second and when the 6-speed automatic transmission does need to downshift, the Sport Mode features rev-matching.
That’s right – rev-matching in a full size Ford F150 pickup.


Sport Mode in the 2016 Ford F150 is activated with the Tow/Haul button, which when pushed twice quickly lights an amber S on the gauge cluster, much like the new Ford Mustang. Ford hasnt offered any improved performance numbers, but this Sport Mode might allow the new F150 to get from 0-60 quicker and for those who like to drag race their trucks - Sport Mode might help it get down the track a little quicker.
