Truckin’ Fast Wednesday: 2015 EcoBoost Lights up the Strip
We don’t personally know the owner, but he sure has a lightning-quick Ford F-150.
This week’s “Truckin’ Fast Wednesday” video features a 2015 Ford F-150 making a speedy run down the quarter-mile drag strip. In most cases, an F-150 without any aftermarket goodies wouldn’t be all that interesting, which is why this EcoBoost pickup features one key modification – a good performance tune.
According to video’s description, Omar Girona’s 2015 Ford F-150 is powered by a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 with an engine tune from Southern Speed Inc. There is no mention of the specific power figure after the tune, but considering the track times of this four-wheel drive pickup, it’s clear that it packs a serious punch.
The video begins as the Ford prepares for a race against a Chevrolet Silverado, which sounds as though it is powered by a GM Ecotec V8 engine. As the bright red half-ton rolls towards the starting line, we can hear the tires sticking to the surface of the track, indicating pretty solid track prep for both vehicles.
As soon as the race begins, it is practically over. The red Ford slips quietly down the track, soundly beating the Chevy in the right lane. We won’t get into more details, as this race is better watched than read!
