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.

What Is The Possibility of Ford F150 Hybrid

We learned back in January that Ford will have a hybrid version of their popular F150 pickup on sale by 2020 and with the discussion of electrified pickups flaring up lately, today we take a look at the possibilities for the most fuel-friendly Ford F-Series.




Since Ford announced around the 2017 North American International Auto Show in Detroit that they would be bringing hybrid versions of the Mustang and F150 to market by 2020, the company hasn’t had much to say about either of these popular models being offered with an electrified version. However, Business Insider spoke with Ford Chief Technology Officer Raj Nair, the latest bit of information on the electrified F150 hit the internet.


Nair told Business Insider that while a plug-in electric Ford truck isn’t out of the question in the future, but for the short term, we can expect to see a hybrid F150 with an internal combustion engine mated with an electric-assisted hybrid drive system.


But when the Ford F150 Hybrid arrives in the next few years, what exactly can we expect? We don’t know for sure, but based on the few clues along the way, we can make some guesses. Today, we look at the basic possibilities for the first hybrid Ford pickup.


Guessing the Ford F150 Hybrid Drivetrain
So far, the only information on the hybrid F150 promised to arrive by 2020 is that it will offer “powerful towing and payload capacity”. That is pretty vague, but we also know that the Ford Mustang is slated to get a hybrid drivetrain by 2020 and it is more than possible than these two vehicles will share a hybrid drivetrain. After all, the F150 and Mustang have shared many engines over the years and according to Ford, the hybrid Mustang will pack “V8 power and even more low-end torque”, so it seems reasonable to believe that the Mustang hybrid with V8 power and torque could serve as a great hybrid drivetrain for the F150 as well.

2018 Ford F150 Diesel Engine Possibilities

Ford announced at the 2017 Detroit Auto Show that the 2018 F150 will get a new PowerStroke 3.0L diesel V6, but the automaker didn’t offer any details on that new engine, so today we look at the possible engine details for the first diesel-powered half ton F-Series pickup. We know two things about the engine HP and torque power of 2018 F 150, originally published at TorqueNews.com.




Ford Motor Company rolled out their refreshed 2018 F150 at the 2017 North American International Auto Show in Detroit and while the new look of the half ton F-Series pickup was the main attraction for most attendees, the bigger news with the 2018 F150 is the arrival of the long-awaited diesel engine option. After spending the past few years (if not longer) speculating on the future of a diesel F150, Ford offered only the most basic details on their newest half ton engine, leading to more speculation – like the piece that you are reading right now.


What we know is that the 2018 Ford F150 will have an “all-new 3.0-liter PowerStroke diesel engine, designed, engineered and tested in-house and paired with the 10-speed automatic transmission”. We don’t get any further specifications, so we have no idea how much horsepower or torque this engine will offer, but do two things:


1. The 2018 Ford F150 diesel will be marketed to compete with the Ram 1500 EcoDiesel, so the Motor Company will likely work to make their small diesel engine more powerful and more fuel efficient than the Ram diesel.


2. Ford Motor Company designed the 3.0L diesel V6 at use in the current Land Rover portfolio, so while the diesel engine in the 2018 F150 is said to be all-new, we know what Ford has been capable of in the past when designing small diesel engines.
