Ford F-150 EcoBoost Growing in Popularity
The EcoBoost V6 was introduced by Ford to offer an alternative to a gas-guzzling V8 that offered the same (or more) power and torque. While many of you here at Ford Truck Enthusiasts would rather have your F-150 with a V8, more people than ever are getting their trucks with an EcoBoost.
I know this is going to sound crazy, but the big red truck you see here is actually green. AAA ranked the 2015 Ford F-150 the winner of its 2015 Green Car Guide’s Pickup Truck category.
I got excited when I laid eyes upon the truck you see above. I thought, “Oh yeah, Ram is taking on the Raptor!”
Yes, I built a $62,530 truck. It’s not difficult to get a truck in the $50,000 plus range. That’s why the number one luxury vehicle on sale in the country is the Ford F-150.
Ford “confirmed” they were working very hard on putting together a hybrid F-150. The Hybrid engine will most likely use a version of the 2.7L EcoBoost V6 engine and will likely return 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway.
