Ford EcoBoost Challenge is Coming to Town

By -


Full disclosure: I’m posting this here for you all, but I’m not. I’ll explain. You’re Ford nuts, so I’m sure you’ve had some sort of experience with an EcoBoost-powered vehicle. Many of you probably own at least one. I’m sharing news of this year’s EcoBoost Challenge for you…to share with your friends and family members who haven’t driven a Blue Oval with an EcoBoost under its hood.

Tell them that starting March 7, they can get behind the wheel of “some of Ford’s most anticipated new models, including the all-new 2015 Ford Mustang and all-new 2015 Ford F-150 [with a 2.7-liter EcoBoost V6] – the toughest, smartest, most capable F-150 ever. Also on hand will be the all-new 2015 Ford Edge, new 2015 Expedition, plus Escape, Fusion Hybrid and Transit Connect Wagon.”

While at the EcoBoost Challenge, participants can test the speed of their reflexes in the Fiesta and Focus STs in the ST Reaction Time Challenge, test the F-150 and Edge against their competitors, and discover the Mustang EcoBoost’s “elevated performance and handling.” They’ll also get the chance to experience Ford’s park assist technologies and go through a “ShiftPhobia” manual transmission bootcamp, among other things.


On top of all of that, they can also potentially win an EcoBoost-powered 2015 Ford Edge to drive home.
