The 2018 Ford F-150 is still available with a good old fashioned V8, but the top engine option is the turbo 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6. Even better than that is the High Output 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6, but you can only get that in the Raptor off-road truck—until 2019, when you’ll be able to get the big booster daddy in the…
The 2017 Ford Raptor is an amazing piece of engineering. But as powerful as the truck’s twin turbo 3.5-liter V6 is, the sound just isn’t as boot-shakingly badass as the last generation’s V8. I thought a MagnaFlow exhaust might change that but, well, why don’t you listen and decide for yourself?
You can still buy a Ford F-150 with a 5.0-liter V8, but the top-shelf engine option is the 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost. Yet I still hear stuff like– “will that fancy-pants tech really last?” Take this tour of a turbo F-150 with 205,268 miles on it and see for yourself.
The Ford EcoSport has finally arrived in America to give us a Kia Soul/Jeep Renegade-sized compact SUV with Ford’s signature Aston Martin-esque trapezoidal grille. And a fun tailgate that swings open from the side, not the top. When was the last time you saw that?
Ford’s already put the 2017 Raptor through some significant off-road races this year, but next month it goes to the big show: the 2016 Baja 1000. This might be the closest-to-stock vehicle that’s ever braved the crunchy dustball race, and it’d better finish or that “Baja Mode” button is going to be a lot harder to…
Just after the current-gen Mustang launched in 2014, Ford said it was “developing custom engine calibrations for the all-new Mustang 2.3-liter EcoBoost, with a product expected on the market by the end of 2015.” Well, Ford pulled an Elon Musk and blew right by that deadline, but now the tune is finally here. Here’s…
The online configurator for the 2017 Ford F-150, including the long-awaited Raptor off-road variant, is finally online. And weren’t you just looking for some place to procrastinate?
About two years ago Ford executive Raj Nair said the 3.5 liter turbo V6-powered 2017 Ford Raptor would have 450 horsepower. Over the weekend some dealer documents made their way onto forums and Facebook chats confirming the same, along with torque and towing figures.
We reported a few months ago that Ford’s 2017 F-150 was going to debut with a new 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6, which was expected to make 365 horsepower and 450 lb-ft of torque. Well, Ford just called me out of the blue to inform me that their power numbers are actually higher than initial estimates. Great news!
Ford’s ahead of the game with their turbocharged engine offerings and their aluminum bodies. But as we already know, the Blue Oval is putting a cherry on top by adding four more gears to their transmission and they’re increasing their 3.5-liter EcoBoost’s torque output to insane levels. Today we learned a bit more…
The Ford Raptor is unequivocally the baddest factory off-road pickup truck in America. At the end of this year the new one comes out, in Ford’s aluminum F-150 bodystyle with an aggressively-tuned 3.5 EcoBoost engine. Here it is being driven exactly the way you’d want to.
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.
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.
