Hi Guys, New to Ford and went out last week and bought a 2015 F150 3.5L 6V ECOBOOST. love the truck, seems to have great power, Looks great, has awesome room in the back seat. Anyway, I think I made a smart move and got a great truck, I was rolling around on the ground looking at everything under the truck when I noticed something in the front bumper. Right in the middle. It looks like a silver radiator not to big, maybe 4 inches, but in front of that are some louvers that move up and down, when I moved them they sounded as if they are on a motor. Anyone have any advice as to what this is? Thank you very much.

I'll play along, that small radiator is your CAC, or air to air cooler, aka intercooler which cools the intake air from your turbos to your intake (and it's bigger than 4 inches... well that's what I try to tell myself at least anyway). The louvers are all part of the "Active Grill Shutter System" supposed to help with aerodynamics and fuel economy.
