TRUCK PULL 3.5L EcoBoost V6 in Action
This week’s Truck Pull video is another showing just how tough the 3.5L EcoBoost V6 is in even the toughest conditions.
Truck pulling competitions are generally reserved for high powered V8s – especially in the stock classes – but this EcoBoost’d 2011 F-150 shows that a stock twin turbo V6 can do the same work as the V8 pickups.
This 2011 Ford F-150 EcoBoost pickup is equipped with four wheel drive, the off road package, the max trailer tow package with 3.73 gears and an electric locking rear differential.
I would imagine that it is also fitted with stock tires, or some tires that are comparable to what would have come on this F-150 the day it was built.
The EcoBoost quietly gets this F-150 off to a great start and the driver pilots the rig past the cameraman in a hurry, but as the truck races out of the covered pavilion and into the sun, the pickup loses traction and as momentum is lost – the run is over.
The EcoBoost F-150 doesn’t make a full pull, but with a distance of 272.2 feet, this is a very respectable run.
