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.

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.

2015 F-150 Truck Will Go On Sale In December

Nov 11, 2014 - 1:24 PM - by STdan

DETROIT (Reuters) - Ford Motor Co on Tuesday is scheduled to begin production of its redesigned, aluminum-intensive F-150 full-size pickup truck, a key profit generator for the No. 2 U.S. automaker that will go on sale next month.

The F-150, the best-selling vehicle in the U.S. market for 32 straight years, has contributed the lion's share of Ford's global pretax profit so analysts and investors are watching the launch of the new model closely.

The 2015 F-150 will be initially produced at Ford's assembly plant in Dearborn, Michigan. It will go on sale in December in North America, where the bulk of the demand is, and head to other markets like the Middle East in early 2015.

The 2014 ‪‎Ford‬ ‪‎F150‬ has been recalled for a pair of possible safety risks.

Ford Motor Company has issued a pair of recalls for the 2014 F150 pickup – one pertaining to the function of the rear brake lights and a second that focuses on the passenger’s side airbag system – both of which pose some risk to the occupants of the truck and others on the road around them. Patrick Rall reports for TorqueNews.com

This is the era of the recall and with millions of vehicles being recalled each year for things as simple as an incorrectly spelled information sticker under the hood, these new 2014 Ford F150 recalls should be taken a bit more seriously. Although Ford is not aware of any accidents or injuries stemming from either of these two issues, one of them could greatly increase the likelihood of injury in the event of an accident while the other increases the likelihood of getting in to an accident.

2014 Ford F150 Brake Light Recall
The first and smaller of the two new 2014 Ford F150 recalls focuses on a problem with the brake pedal position switch. This switch is what allows the brake lights to illuminate when the brake pedal is depressed, but it seems that there is a relatively small batch of 2014 F150 pickups have had their brake pedal position switch may have been incorrectly calibrated. If the switch is not adjusted properly, the brake lights could either fail to light up when you first begin braking, or they might not light up at all. Of course, not having your brake lights light up when you are slowing down could cause a vehicle behind you to run into your F150 when the other driver doesn’t realize that you are braking.

More importantly, the brake pedal position switch is also responsible for disengaging the cruise control system so Ford is advising owners of these trucks to avoid using their cruise control system until the problem has been address.

All of the 960 affected vehicles were built at the Dearborn Truck Plant between March 1st 2014 and March 13th 2014 along with some other trucks built at the Kansas City Plant from March 3rd 2014 to March 13th 2014. 618 of these troublesome F150 pickups are in the United States while 338 are in Canada and 4 are in Mexico.

The fix for this F150 recall is as simple as the technician adjusting the brake pedal position switch.
