    [​IMG] F-150 is the only truck in its segment that offers direct injected and turbocharged engines. Ram’s 3.0L EcoDiesel notwithstanding.

    The F-150 with the 2.7L EcoBoost w/ Start/Stop (shown) offers an EPA rating of 19/26 mpgUS city/highway although that estimate is inflated a bit.

    Power and efficiency from lower weight. Ford's 15 F-150 Loses 700 pounds! also shows how displacement downsizing is a key multiplier to improve both straight line performance and efficiency. The all-new 2.7L EcoBoost I4 w/ Auto Start/Stop in a lightweight Ford F-150 is a game changer.

    This fall, the all-new 2nd gen 3.5L EcoBoost with standard Auto Start-Stop and an all-new 10-speed AT will continue the story with even more power and better efficiency, providing at least 30 lb.-ft. more peak torque compared with the first-generation 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine.

    Since January of 2011 with the introduction of the excellent 3.5L EcoBoost in that years F-150, these efficient and powerful engines have been leading truck sales. Over the course of 1 million pickups so equipped sold, have saved customers a staggering amount of fuel. Ford states 110 million gallons of gas has been saved when the combined ratings for 2011-16 F-150 EcoBoost are compared to the V8 models they replaced, and an assumed 15,000 miles driven per truck per year. I would guess maybe 40 to 50 million gallons of fuel have actually been saved vs. the truly pathetic offerings that were/are on the road even today. That result is an astounding number all on its own.

    EcoBoost Sales Increasing

    It took more than 1,000 days to sell the first 400,000 EcoBoost engines. It has taken 2,000 days to sell 1 million and the trend is accelerating. The 2.7L EcoBoost is selling at a rate of more than 13,000 orders in the last two months. Combined with the 3.5L version, the two EcoBoost engines have sold more than 300,000 units in 2016 alone.
