F150Ecoboost.net - Ford F150 Ecoboost Forum

Nov 14, 2012 - 3:53 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.

Ford F-150 wins 2014 Innovation Vehicle Of The Year Award ($30,000 and under)

Nov 26, 2014 - 3:16 PM - by DrumsOfGrohl

The Motor Press Guild (MPG) announced two winners of the 2014 Innovation Vehicle of the Year (IVY) Award. The MPG is the largest automotive media association in North America, and they announced the award on Wednesday, during the LA Auto Show's MPG Motoring Invitational. For the above $30,000 class, BMW took home the award for the i8, and Ford took the award for its F-150 in the under $30,000 class.

After the vehicles were nominated, 13 finalists were chosen by expert judges. MPG's journalists and analyst members voted on the 13 finalists, taking into consideration 9 categories: innovation, technology, engineering, safety, environmental impact, price, affordability and value.

Ford has introduced its first all-aluminum body, which allows the F-150 to save up to 700 lbs of weight. This in turn ups the game in terms of fuel economy, acceleration, breaking, and towing and hauling capacity.

“All these risks-rewards are focused on one word—aluminum—and Ford's decision to become the first automaker to use significant amounts of this lightweight material in high-volume production is a gamble,” said Dinkel. “Huge as manufacturing delays could cost Ford its truck sales leadership. Then again, if everything aligns, Ford will become the world leader in the use of aluminum in automobiles. This truck is a game changer.”

“On behalf of all MPG members, I'd like to congratulate Ford and BMW on their IVY awards,” said MPG President Joni Gray. “We had an exceptional group of entries this year, but MPG's journalist and analyst members agreed that these two vehicles represent the year's best in technology, safety and innovation.”

All in all, around fifty vehicles were featured at the MPG Motoring Invitational, not to mention the amount of passion for motor vehicles that was prevalent at the event.

2015 Ford F-150 Pickup Rolls Off Assembly Line

Nov 11, 2014 - 1:25 PM - by STdan

It might seem like just another day at the big assembly plant, the full-size F-150 pickups rolling down the line at a steady pace. But a closer look reveals that these aren’t any ordinary trucks; they’re the new aluminum-bodied models that comprise one of the biggest bets Ford Motor Co. has taken in years.

Pressed by both regulators and consumers alike to improve fuel economy, automakers are turning to a variety of solutions, including what the industry likes to call 'lightweighting.' And by switching from conventional steel bodies to aluminum, Ford engineers were able to trim as much as 750 pounds of mass from some F-150 models. That is expected to yield significant improvements in mileage when the EPA formally confirms tests on the new truck.
