MBRP Attempts to Fix the Ford F-150 EcoBoost Exhaust Sound
Flat out, the exhaust on the Ford F-150 2.7 EcoBoost is boring. It’s soft, it’s plain, it’s forgettable. And on a truck, that’s not a good thing.
“Your engine is shot.” Those are words no one wants to hear.
We know Ford has been evaluating the performance of a diesel engine in an F-150, but one power plant that’s already in the half-ton, the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6, has already passed a big test.
Right now, the floor of the NRG Center in Houston is full of more than 700 vehicles that range from performance cars to pickup trucks. In between those two extremes at the Houston Auto Show stands the 2016 Shelby American F-150.
One of the reasons you bought your Ford F-150 in the first place is that it looked cool. Radiator fluid is what keeps it cool, though.
