This week’s video takes us back to the early days of the Ford F-150 pickup with the EcoBoost engine. In addition to singing the praises of the new twin turbocharged 3.5L EcoBoost V6, this commercial talks about how the EcoBoost is the wave of the future.

Of course, no talk of the future would be complete without the ultimate future vehicle – the DeLorean DMC12 – which makes a brief cameo at the beginning of the commercial as it heads towards an exit labeled “The Future”.

To tie in the relationship to the 2011 Ford F-150 EcoBoost, as the DeLorean races towards the future, the twin turbo pickup truck is beaming back from the future.

Considering the success of the EcoBoost engine technology around the world in the years following this 2011 F-150 commercial, it makes perfect sense that Ford was able to roll out this engine with such confidence.

After all, a trip to the future would have shown any Ford exec that the technology was bound to succeed.

Enjoy.
