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.

3 Engine Options for the 2018 Ford F150 Detailed with Power Output

When Ford Motor Company introduced the refreshed 2018 F150 at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show, the company didnít offer full details on the drivetrain, but they promised a new entry level engine, the first ever diesel option and more power for some of the other engines. Today, Ford offered up the first numbers for the 2018 F150 engine lineup, giving us a look at the horsepower and torque figures for the 2.7L EcoBoost, the 5.0L v8 and the new 3.3L base V6.


New 2018 F150 Base Engine
The entry level engine for the 2018 Ford F150 is a new, naturally aspired 3.3L V6, which delivers 290 horsepower and 265lb-ft of torque. This new V6, featuring both port injection and direct injection, delivers 8 more horsepower and 12 more lb-ft of torque, but it should also be more fuel efficient. It appears as though this base engine will be mated to the 6-speed automatic transmission as standard equipment.


Beefed Up Current Engines
The 2018 Ford F150 will share two engines with the current models, but for the new model year, those engines will be beefed up to offer more power, more capabilities and probably better fuel economy.


The 2.7L EcoBoost V6 climbs from 375lb-ft of torque to 400lb-ft through the introduction of port injection, while the horsepower output stays at 325. This engine, which was the most fuel efficient gasoline engine in the half-ton truck segment for 2017 will likely be even more fuel-friendly for 2018 while also packing more power.

5 Reasons You Should Drive with a Dash Cam

Jun 19, 2017 - 9:41 AM - by AutoGuide.com



From increased safety to capturing beautiful vistas, driving with a dash cam nowadays is a no-brainer.

From Russian meteors to Chinese firework factory explosions, the dash cam has become the darling of viral video entertainment. And is responsible for capturing an unfathomable amount of footage that, collectively, has garnered billions of views on the Internet. Thatís amazing since the point of owning a dash cam is far different. Most people are more interested in the legal and safety benefits of driving with a dash cam than online entertainment royalties.

Jun 08, 2017 - 12:25 PM - by AutoGuide.com

Many of the cars we see on the road had humble beginnings and have changed quite a lot over the years. Letís take a look at where these automotive nameplates came from and how theyíve grown.
The popular Toyota Corolla compact debuted in 1966 but hit North America in 1968. It was available as a coupe, sedan or wagon, and had a 90-inch wheelbase. Under the hood was a 1.1-liter four-cylinder engine that made 60 horsepower that was sent to the rear wheels through a four-speed manual transmission. It had a total length of 151.5 inches and was 58.7 inches wide.

Do suspension mods really improve the 2017 Gen 2 Ford F150 Raptor?

Is it really worth all the money to modify a brand new 70K+ Ford F150 Raptor truck to make it "drive better"?

That's a loaded question every time it gets asked, now let me ask you this, is the person your asking giving you a honest answer or giving you the "we make the most on this product line", so YES it will make it "drive better"


This is what I have learned since the 2017 Gen 2 Ford F150 Raptor has been out, it all depends on the driver, What do you as a driver expect from the truck after the modifications, why do you want to do them, did a friend just do the same thing or advise you to do the same thing? These days there are many outlets for information on what to do to your ride the hard part is sifting through the info. For example, Fordraptor2.com.


2017 Ford F150 Raptor - Ford's Dedication to Off-Road Market



The 2017 Gen 2 Ford F150 Raptor is a perfect example of Ford's dedication to baja and the off-road market by producing a top of the line luxury truck that has actually had real world testing, Ford has made a major investment to make the truck ride like Lincoln on and off-road to appeal to the masses. Out of the box the Raptor is everything that most of the owners could have imagined, but for the rest let the modifications begin!


One of the 1st things to be addressed on the Raptor is the front end altitude/attitude, and there are a few options all leading away from Ford's R&D dollars. I will say IMO all look better and drive a little worse. [but if you have had modified vehicles then you already knew that] now just because I said drive a little worse doesn't mean it won't ride better when it gets in its natural environment of the dirt.
