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.

First Impressions Driving the 2015 F150 2.7 Ecoboost

First Impressions
Driving the 2015 F150 2.7 Ecoboost

Last Saturday marked time to have the oil changed in my wife’s MKX so I took it to Brad Manning Ford in DeKalb, IL, my local Ford Store where we've been doing business since buying a new Taurus in 1988. While the techs performed a lubricant transfusion and associated physical on the Mark 10, I took time to touch base with my sales guy to catch up on the progress of Ford’s latest nonferrous project, the 2015 F150. Well it so happened that they had taken recent delivery on a Blue Jeans colored XL for which he tossed me the keys and asked if I would like to take it for a spin.

Well, after a few milliseconds of arm twisting we hiked across the lot to the shiny new Super Crew equipped with the new 2.7 baby Ecoboost V6 which really had my curiosity peaked. (First thing we "learned" was the dealer license plate won't stick to the tailgate. Duh. Bumpers are still steel...) Now, I've been shoeing a 2013 Super Cab XLT for a bit over two years and I was admittedly a bit skeptical at the potential of just 165 cubic inches of even direct injected twin turbocharged V6.

I was wrong…

After firing it up the quiet little power plant idled out of the parking lot with smooth graceful low power manners. With the even the basic nature of the XL impressing me as several steps above the level of the 1990 XLT Lariat F350 I had several years ago, it’s easy to see pickup trucks have come a very long way to being every day transportation for the large car hungry American motoring crowd. The SCREW interior was more spacious the wife’s luxo cross (my terminology) and very well appointed for the base model. Weight reduction on this rig is right around 700 lbs. on average and it feels very much like its lighter weight will speak performance.

But, we’re interested in grunt, aren't we, kids?

Taking the usual demo route which I've run with several sales guys/girls at this store provides a combination of town/stoplight/highway drives and in a few short miles gives a combination of opportunity and experience unlike those trapped in more urban environments. Going easy for the first couple of miles allowing the engine to come up to temp, I came to the wide open spaces section of the route. Even on the way there, the off idle stoplight getaway performance was, and I hate to admit it, snappier than my 3.5! While the lighter weight is credited for some of this, that little 2.7 speaks torque!

No, I didn't take it to the max for several reasons. First, not my truck. I don’t beat on stuff I don’t own. B) Its new. Anything new needs some TLC for a while, even if it’s just to push it a bit. Third, if I broke it I would have to take responsibility and I like these guys too much to betray their trust.

So, I took it up to... [Read More]

Ford Mustang GT350R, GT and F150 Raptor Steal the Show in Detroit

There were a great many exciting debuts at this week’s media days of the 2015 North American International Auto Show including (but certainly not limited to) the new Ford GT, the Ford Shelby G350R Mustang, the SVT Raptor F150, the Ram Rebel, the new Chevy Volt, the new Chevy Bolt Concept, the new Toyota Tacoma, the next Lincoln MKX, the Lexus GS-F, the Audi Q7, the Cadillac CTS-V and much, much more. Patrick Rall reports from TorqueNews.com.

However, none of the concept or production vehicles that debuted in Cobo Hall this week made as big of a splash as the trio of high performance Ford products so while no one really “wins” the auto show – there is no question that the Ford brand stole the show during media days and it will almost certainly be the star of the show when the public pours into Cobo tomorrow.

The SVT Raptor Leads a Strong Truck Class
Although the details of the new Ford SVT Raptor F150 are limited thus far, no truck at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show has gotten as much attention as the mighty Raptor. The Toyota Tacoma will likely be the bestseller of the group of trucks to debut this week and the Ram brand stole some attention from the green crowd with their new HFE package that offers 29 miles per gallon on the highway – but neither of these trucks are as critically acclaimed as the new F150 Raptor.

The 2017 Ford F150 SVT Raptor is powered by a new SVT-tuned EcoBoost V6 that is promised to deliver more power than the outgoing Raptor, which pulled 411 horsepower and 434lb-ft of torque from the 6.2L V8. Once the actual figures for the new Raptor are announced, there is a good chance that this off-road ready F150 will be the most powerful truck in the half ton segment.

The Ford Shelby GT350R Mustang Brings Added Performance
The new Ford Shelby GT350 Mustang has been the talk of the pony car town since it debuted last year in LA, but at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show, Ford rolled out the new “R” version of the latest Shelby Mustang. This new Shelby GT350R Mustang could very well knock off the Camaro Z/28, which would make it the best handling pony car of all time. Like the Raptor, we don’t know exactly how much power the new GT350R will have when it hits showrooms, but Ford is promising figures over 500 horsepower and 400lb-ft of torque.

The Ford GT is the Next Great American Supercar
Dodge has the Viper, Chevrolet has the Corvette Z06, but for almost 10 years, Ford Motor Company has not had a proper... [Read More]
