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.

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.

The Difference Between The 2017 Ford Raptor 3.5 vs The 2017 F150 3.5 Ecoboost

These days you see marketing hype everywhere you look, and Ford Motor Company is one of the best for every market. Ford has continued to accelerate forward in the truck market with the launch of the Gen 2 2017 Ford Raptor and the ever evolving line of Ecoboost motors.

So with all of the trucks being offered in the truck lineup is there really a big difference between the 2017 Ford Raptor and the 2017 F150 Ecoboost? Jason Lader reports from TorqueNews.com.




Let's start the with the truck that started it all, the F150, and now the 2017 F150 has the 3.5 ecoboost motor. For those that don't know the Ecoboost on the V6 model has twin turbos. The motor offering in the F150 can definitely hold its own among the other players in the full size truck market putting down 375hp and 470ft-lb.


Second up is the Gen 2 Raptor which at the current time is only offered with the 3.5 v6 Ecoboost motor. Same motor as the F150 right? Nope, Ford performance has not let the people down, they have given them what they didn't know they were looking for, a H.O. Ecoboost V6 [Gen 2 Raptor only]. Putting down 450hp and 510ft-lbs making the 2017 Ford Raptor the highest horse power truck in the 2017 full size truck lineup.

So to sum it up, yes, there is a difference in the 2017 Ford Raptor 3.5 Ecoboost and the 2017 F150 3.5 Ecoboost motors, but it doesn't matter. Both 3.5 Ecoboost motors have twin turbos under the hood and are both full of tire shredding potential that will put a grin from ear to ear every time you pin it!
