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 Turck, 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.

All-New Ford F-150 2.7-Liter ECOBOOST V6 Engine Released

Jul 22, 2014 - 12:22 PM - by NickJ

ALL-NEW FORD F-150 2.7-LITER ECOBOOST V6 ENGINE DELIVERS V8 CAPABILITY AND PERFORMANCE

Tougher, lighter 2015 Ford F-150 welcomes two new engines to its four-engine lineup, providing choices to meet almost any customer need – from hauling tools to towing trailers

High-output 2.7-liter EcoBoost® with standard Auto Start-Stop broadens engine lineup by providing mid-range V8-like towing capability of 8,500 pounds, payload of 2,250 pounds, 325 horsepower, 375 lb.-ft. of torque

Standard 3.5-liter V6 engine with twin independent variable camshaft timing delivers impressive power and efficiency with towing of 7,600 pounds that can't be beat, 1,910 pounds of payload, 283 horsepower and 255 lb.-ft. of torque

Use of high-strength steel and high-strength, military-grade, aluminum alloy plus smart engineering saves up to 700 pounds, improving power-to-weight ratio and allowing for gains in towing, performance and efficiency

With its new 2.7-liter EcoBoost® with standard Auto Start-Stop and new 3.5-liter V6 with twin independent variable camshaft timing, the 2015 Ford F-150 resets the bar in light-duty pickup truck performance, capability and efficiency.

"The 2015 F-150 is the most capable F-150 yet, while shedding up to 700 pounds," said Bob Fascetti, vice president, Powertrain Engineering. "These two new V6 engines – the 2.7-liter turbocharged EcoBoost and normally aspirated 3.5-liter Ti-VCT – set a new standard for Ford for capability and efficiency."

2.7-liter EcoBoost power
The high-output, twin-turbo 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6 features an entirely new design that delivers power and performance in a strong, smart package. The engine produces 325 horsepower and 375 lb.-ft. of torque – improving the power-to-weight ratio of the 2015 truck by 15 percent over the 2014 5.0-liter V8-equipped F-150 with similar torque output, thanks to vehicle light-weighting.

The 2.7-liter EcoBoost 4x2 has a maximum payload rating of 2,250 pounds and maximum tow rating of... [Read More]

Current Ford F Series Sales Dip as Buyers Wait for 2015 F150

The Ford F150 and the rest of the F Series lineup have been selling in incredible numbers over the past 18 months, but as the arrival of the all new 2015 F150 draws near, sales of the current Ford F150 have slowed as consumers are likely waiting for the launch of the next generation Ford pickup – either to buy that new model or to try to score a deal on a current model.

Patrick Rall reports from TorqueNews.com.

Through the first six months of 2014, Ford has sold more than 365,000 F Series pickups and the bulk of those numbers are F150 sales. Ford started 2014 with strong growth in January, February, March and April, but starting in May there was a drop in sales followed by a bigger drop in June. While some will try to use an F Series sales drop as a problem of some sort, it was easily predictable after the debut of the 2015 F150 in January at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

A sales drop shortly before the debut of any brand new model is to be expected and when this predictable sales decline hits a vehicle that sells in such incredible numbers as the Ford F150, it has what looks to be a much bigger impact than it does on a slower selling vehicle. This drop happens because prospective consumers hold off on making their purchase until the next generation arrives in showrooms and they do this for a variety of reasons.

We All Want the Latest and Greatest F150
The 2015 Ford F150 is expected to arrive within the next few months so people who are looking to buy a new F150 right now are likely willing to wait a few more months to have a newer and presumably better truck. These buyers want to see the new F150 in person in different colors and in different trimlines. Most importantly, they want to be able to drive the next generation F150 before buying a 2014 model. After all, no one likes to spend $50,000 on a truck only to find out that the similarly priced newer model is a whole lot better.

New Models = Discounts on Old Models
When the 2015 Ford F150 begins arriving in dealerships around the country, there will almost surely still be plenty of 2014 F150 pickups at dealerships all over the country. Both the dealerships and Ford Motor Company will want to get these 2014 models off of the lots as quickly as possible, as we can expect to see more wiggle room for dealerships and more incentives from the automaker to buy these “old” trucks. In other words, even if you are 100% sure that you want a 2014 F150 and not... [Read More]

The 2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost 4 Could Make a Great 2015 F150 SFE

As all of the automakers work to come up with the most fuel efficient vehicles possible, the 2015 Ford F150 could call upon the new 2.3L EcoBoost 4-cylinder that will power the 2015 Ford Mustang to create a Super Fuel Economy model that would offer far less trucking capabilities and far better fuel economy – essentially battling the fuel economy of the midsized truck market with an F150.

This story is reprinted from TorqueNews.com and written by Patrick Rall at The 2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost 4 Could Make a Great 2015 F150 SFE

The 2015 Ford F150 will be comprised heavily of aluminum and when combined with the new 2.7L EcoBoost V6 engine, the next generation F150 will battle for the title of the most efficient half ton truck in America. Ford has promised that this new EcoBoost V6 will offer excellent fuel economy and similar power to some non-premium V8 engines. That engine might make the 2015 F150 the most fuel efficient half ton truck, but it will be a tough fight with the amazingly capable Ram 1500 EcoDiesel.

Ford could introduce a new Super Fuel Economy package (SFE) of the 2015 F150 pickup in a regular cab, short bed configuration that would derive its power from the 2.3L EcoBoost 4-cylinder engine that will power the 2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost. This truck would essentially fill the gap created by bringing an end to the popular Ford Ranger, offering significantly less towing and hauling capabilities than the other F150 pickups while offering far better fuel economy.

A Lighter Duty Ford F150 Could Offer Incredible Fuel Economy
Ford Motor Company has stated that through the use of new aluminum components including large portions of the body, the 2015 F150 will be about 700 pounds lighter than a similarly built truck constructed all from steel. That is likely in the configurations that have the biggest changes, which are likely the larger trucks with larger aluminum panels. However, we have to keep in mind that Ford designed the 2015 F150 to be tough enough to take on any situation and tow a whole lot of weight in the process.

Were Ford to essentially create an “F150 Light”, that was available with far fewer weight adding options and only in the smallest configuration, it could be a big hit with the people who really don’t need the capabilities of a new F150. We all know that a great many half ton truck owners really don’t need to tow 10,000lbs or do anything else that requires big truck owner. Those are the same folks that... [Read More]
