The 2017 Ford Raptor is redesigned, re-engined, and it looks great in pictures. But now it’s faced with the challenge of proving itself all over again. So Ford is putting it through six major off-road races this year, in stock condition. Sort of.
Ford has just announced that by the 2017 model year, all EcoBoost-powered F-150 pickup trucks will automatically shut off when possible to save fuel.
It is very important to me that I, Doug DeMuro, get to the bottom of every issue, and also sometimes to the top, especially if that issue is a scary-looking spider on my ceiling. This is why I’ve decided to devote today’s column to uncovering the giant marketing scheme that is Ford EcoBoost.
This weekend, we took the off-road version of the new Ford F-150 pickup through the highest elevation trail in California. It’d be a test for its new turbocharged engine and its ability on dirt, rocks and sand. Could America’s best selling vehicle hack it?
Here's a great example of trucks helping trucks, and an even better opportunity for Ford fanboys to fap themselves silly. The snowdump might be finished, but the streets of Chicago look pretty hopeless in the aftermath and this F-150 pulls off a righteous recovery effort.
Ford is voluntarily recalling 2015 Mustangs with the 2.3L EcoBoost due to fuel sensors that may have been installed incorrectly. If not corrected these sensors could lead to a pressurized fuel leak and possible engine fire.
There's a whole lot of dick-measuring happening right now on how half-ton trucks stack up on power, fuel economy, payload, and maximum towing capacity. Here's your guide to decoding what every US automaker's truck in this class is really putting down.
The official fuel-economy estimates for the 2015 Ford F-150 have been announced at a press conference today: up to 26 MPG on the highway with the 2.7 EcoBoost engine. Here are the EPA fuel economy claims for the 2.7 EcoBoost, 3.5 EcoBoost, 3.5 V6, and 5.0 V8 in Ford's new aluminum truck.
It's time for Ford to quit messing around and give us a Mustang ST. Take a moment to imagine everything that makes the Fiesta and Focus ST so brilliant transposed onto the already delicious Mustang. The line follows a predictable recipe that starts with an Ecoboost four cylinder. In stock tune, the 2.3-liter turbo…
This last couple of years have not been all that good for Lincoln..err… the Lincoln Motor Company as they are now encouraging everyone to call it.
Being the owner of a Merkur XR4Ti and the son of another XR owner, we were both very excited when we heard Ford was reviving the 2.3 Turbo engine in the Mustang. The Mustang hasn't been powered by a 2.3 Turbo since the SVO which ended production in 1986 and featured the same engine that was slotted into a Sierra…
Brace yourselves, Oppo. 2015 Mustang Oppo Reviews are coming. This review is only the tip of the iceberg. I can't wait to see the rest. This is also based entirely on just one test drive, and I didn't even push the car to its limits. Enjoy!
The first turbocharged Mustang in more than three decades is certainly a huge step up from the rental car that the V6 Mustang is, but is it fun enough to provide a real alternative to the GT?
I just spent my first two minutes in the 2015 Ford F-150, with the brand-new 2.7 twin-turbo V6. As you're about to see; the power did catch me by surprise. Enjoy my unedited initial impressions on this brief ride-along.
"The F-150 is dropping the 6.2 V8 for 2015. The 3.5 EcoBoost will become the premium engine, it along with the 5.0 will be carried over... but stay tuned for the new output of those engines." Ford told me last night. Guess that pretty much confirms we're looking at a turbo Raptor in the pipeline.
Getting 140 horsepower out of Ford's three-cylinder Ecoboost makes the Fiesta Zetec S the most powerful 1-liter road car ever built. Would you like it in red or black?
We know how much it weighs, but we still don't know how much power it puts out. Regardless, the 2015 Ford Mustang configurator is somehow online, and your Ecoboost dreams can become a reality starting at $25,170.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration had been running an investigation on 2011 to 2013 Ford F-150 pickups over acceleration issues with the 3.5 EcoBoost engine since May, but they've decided it can be sorted through standard service updates it doesn't need to be recalled.
Every third Focus was sold with the 1.0 Ecoboost three-cylinder in Europe last year, and Ford has finally decided to offer it in the 'States too as an option with the 2015 Ford Focus. There's also a new six-speed automatic.
