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.

2017 Ford F-150 Review

Mar 22, 2017 - 11:44 AM - by AutoGuide.com


Ford has already proven with its aluminum body that it is willing to take big risks with its best-selling pickup, and for 2017, the brand is introducing new technology that could ruin the way its best-seller drives.<span id="more-473407"></span>

You need only see how Jeep’s launch of the jerky, unrefined nine-speed automatic in the Cherokee went over to understand how adding more gears to a transmission can complicate matters while bringing few benefits to the table. Luckily, it looks like Ford was watching its competitors, and the American brand doesn’t seem to be repeating others’ mistakes.

Examining the 2018 Ford F150 Diesel Engine Possibilities

The new PowerStroke diesel engine in the 2018 Ford F150 should make it the most fuel efficient engine in the segment.

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.


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.

2018 Ford Mustang, F150 get Nighttime Pedestrian Detection

The new 2018 Ford Mustang and the 2018 Ford F150 will both get a new nighttime pedestrian detection system which will make the vehicles safer day and night. Do you think it would have been great to get a day time pedestrian detection system too? I think most accidents happen during daytime. Your thoughts?

Ford Motor Company announced today that the 2018 Ford Mustang and 2018 Ford F150 will both feature a new Nighttime Pedestrian Detection system which can apply the brakes in the event of an imminent collision with a person on foot — a feature which Ford says will reduce driver stress at night.


Ford’s press release this morning made it official that both the 2018 Mustang and the 2018 F150 will both feature a new Nighttime Pedestrian Detection system. The company offered details on how the system works, but before getting into that, I want to talk a little about the beginning of Ford’s announcement.
Drivers are Afraid of the Dark
Ford’s announcement started by referencing a poll that the Motor Company conducted which found that most drivers’ greatest fear when driving at night is hitting a pedestrian they cannot see in the dark. Ford points out that some experts believe that this fear of hitting a person on foot while driving at night stems from the early day of mankind, where man was more likely to be attacked by predators at night…essentially causing humans to be inherently afraid of the dark.

When people worry about hitting something that they cannot see and cannot predict while driving at night, their increased stress levels can negatively impact their driving abilities, so to help cut back on that stress — Ford Motor Company is rolling out their Nighttime Pedestrian Detection system.

2017 Ford F-150 Raptor: AutoGuide.com Truck of the Year Contender

Feb 16, 2017 - 3:43 PM - by AutoGuide.com


Pickups are big business in the auto industry and there are plenty of new entries on the scene in 2017. While each of these trucks has its pros and cons, we’re here to tell you which of these redesigns resulted in the best product overall.

To decide which truck is the best new product of the year, AutoGuide.com gathered together five of the most significantly revised pickups to hit the market to evaluate each over three days of testing. Evaluation of these workhorses was done the high desert of California, and among the cacti and creosote bushes, we pushed in each truck with a trailer tow test, desert off-roading, and plenty of empty highway miles.

This year, our contenders are the Ford F-250, Ford F-150 Raptor, Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro, Nissan Titan, and Honda Ridgeline. We will release a new video on each contender every day leading up to Friday, Feb. 17, when we will announce our winner. Of course, each truck has its strengths and weaknesses, but we are here to find the truck that is truly special and has risen above its predecessor the furthest.

Here’s the lowdown on our fifth contender, the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor.
