Ford F-150 EcoBoost Engines Hit 1 Million Sales

Ford Engine II

Ford’s No. 1 selling vehicle, the F-150, hit a milestone last week by selling the millionth half-ton pickup truck equipped with a direct-injection, twin-turbo EcoBoost engine under the hood. Since it was first made available in the 2011 model year, the EcoBoost engine has proven popular due to its ability to generate significant power — meaning horsepower and torque — in a V-6 package. In terms of fuel economy, the EcoBoost engine is competitive with other V-6 engines.

Ford offers two EcoBoost engines for the F-150: a 2.7-liter V-6 combined with a six-speed transmission with standard auto stop-start and the larger 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 (soon to have more horsepower and torque) that will be combined with a new 10-speed transmission later this year. It also will include standard stop-start technology.

When powering a two-wheel-drive F-150, the 2.7-liter EcoBoost V-6 has an EPA fuel economy rating of 18/24/21 mpg city/highway/combined. The current-generation 3.5-liter EcoBoost with two-wheel drive has an EPA rating of 16/22/18 mpg. Both EcoBoost engines were rated with the six-speed automatic transmission.

Great job Ford! No Shaking either!

I wonder how many GM 6.2L have been sold since it's inception?

Not 1 millions that's for friggin sure.


Way to go FORD!!

Yawn, let me know when they get to 100 million like GM.

That just means the demand is up for mechanics to work on these things! Way to go Ford!

100 million Chevy Small Blocks and 100 billion gallons of oil leaked by them.

Buyer Beware. Don't buy a 2014-2017 Silverado or Sierra.

There is no fix for the Chevy Shake and GM will not pursue a fix until the 2018 next gens.

Even I [a die-hard Ford lover] am surprised at the popularity of this exceptional mill. Way to go Blue Oval!!

LOVE
FORD!

The only negative I see with this engine, is the fuel mileage.
Most that I have been around average 14-15 in a 4X4 F150, with towing in the single digit range.

So that should put the GM 5.3 at what 5 or 6 million?

What's the point?

That's allot of Ford junk.
They vibrate and burn and have no brakes.

The only reason they've sold so many is because that's what they've been pushing dealers to sell.

The dependability has been questionable, the price is higher than V8 power, the fuel economy has been proven atrocious especially when towing, and maintenance is a little tougher. The Coyote is a far better purchase in terms of value.

I'll stick with my tried and true 5.7L V-8 Hemi engine. It does what I need to do and more.

Good job on Ford and the other manufacturers on hitting their milestones.

KEEP ON TRUCKIN'

Oh boy another pro Ford article, we never hear about all the other truck engines hitting a million sales.

Yawn, let me know when they get to 100 million like GM.

It's being posted on a lot of other blogs sites. This is site is not Pro-Ford, Ford just reports much more news then the other two boneheads.

http://www.carscoops.com/2016/06/ford-celebrates-1-million-f-150.html

It's huge news. And for the record all you biased-haters thought it would fail.

Ford is proving that with advanced technologies like EcoBoost and high-strength, military-grade, aluminum-alloy construction, Ford continues to outperform the competition.

F-150 is the only truck pushing into the future and offering turbocharged direct injection engines – a move the competition is expected to copy going forward.

In 5 years, Ford sold 1 million.

Wow, just WOW!!!

johnny doe - odd how we see GM fans always playing the "we sell more but combined" game.

How many parts will interchange between that 1st 1955 SBC and the current 6.2 Ecotec?

Can Ford lump every small block engine they have ever made into a tally as well?

Nitro, if you had read the above article posted by johnny doe you would have encountered the sentence below.

The introduction of the Small Block changed everything," said Jim Campbell, ....... your comment got deleted due to your ignorance and claiming the eco-boost as a game changer.

The eco-boost is a game changer and GM is going to copy it in 2018.

I like my 5.0 v8, but I do regret not purchasing the ecoboost instead. My dad has the ecoboost in his truck and gets better fuel economy than I do. Depends largely on driving style. But if you are conservative with the pedal the ecoboost easily gets better fuel economy than the v8. I've driven my dad's ecoboost on many occasions. We both get about the same economy towing his travel trailer, But unloaded around town his gets 1 to 2 mpg better. There's been a few people with mechanical problems but no more than any other engine. The ecoboost has proven itself as a very good motor. If you don't agree then you don't live in the real world.

New Warning To All Ford Ecoboost Owners!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0irwbwpuEbQ

1 million people needed an EGOBOOST.

The fact is GM has more issue with the NA Eco engines than any of the Turbo Eco engines, and GM will be copying Ford's Turbo Eco engines next year.

As GM Authority writes, in its story, New Turbocharged Engines, Start-Stop May Be On Track For T1XX Full-Size Trucks,
"Due to fuel economy standards which go into effect in 2017, both GM and Ford have to find ways to improve the fuel efficiency of their full-size vehicles. As a result, GM will play follow the leader with Ford and offer “a new family of smaller, lighter, more powerful engines similar to Ford’s EcoBoost engines,” Reuters says. These engines will be fuel injected and turbocharged and will feature a stop-start system, like Ford’s 2015 F-150."

A million sales in a few years is big news.

Ford took a risk and proved they could get people to buy a Turbo V6 in a truck when most said they would not. It is hard to believe that as late as 2010 Ford had an all V8 lineup! On top of that they are able to charge them a 1200-1400 dollar premium over the V8 too boot. If I were GM and saw a way to make more money with this I would offer it too.

I would rather see GM charged with being a follower than just standing there and remaining stagnate and not make a buck on a growing trend.

The old 5.4 V8 in the 2009 -2010 F-150 gets BETTER gas mileage than the 3.5 EB.
The 5.4 has been proven as the greatest engine ever in the F-150, the jury is still out on the 5.0 or the ecoboost

need a v8 version. hell even a v10 eco blast!

I like na v8 power better. tuned eco is faster but not better neither is stock.

But the 0-60 was cut in Half to boot. If I'd buy a Raptor today, it'd be the 5.4L

1 million stretched timing chains! Ford service technicians are the real winners here.

Not a fan of the ecoboost, its one thing if it were to actually get better mileage but it doesn't My 4x4 Hemi Ram gets 22 Hwy cruising at 73 MPH. You'd have to drive 53 MPH to get that with an ecoboost. Then you have the fact that this engine will likely have a shorter life span along with turbo replacements.

1 million Ecoboost in just 5 years! That's crazy! Way to go FORD!

Sure How.

Ford is planning the 3L diesel F150 for 2018. If Ram's ED is any indication, there could be a few ecothirst owners opting for the diesel.

Ford has been playing with this diesel F-150 for awhile and Fiat-Chrysler knew it & rushed the Ram Diesel Eco to market for we did it 1st bragging rights. The problem with this is if Ford steals the thunder with great mpg, better HP/TQ numbers, less weight, and more capability, checkmate.

There will be a few but Ford never burned the bridge for diesel engines (as GM has done with aluminum). They determined that Eco"thirst" was the better route to pursue first. Plenty of F150s don't tow on a regular basis, so they get close to diesel MPG, better driving characteristics, less maintenance, in a package that costs less than $1000. Ford never said diesel was unnecessary, they said EcoBoost would meet the needs of a large majority of owners. If you check the sales figures you'll see they were right.

Also, if Ford offers a diesel it isn't going to sell nearly as well as the EcoBoost options and it is going to cost $3-4k like every other diesel out there.

--------

They didn't burn the aluminum bridge, just pointed out how dumb it was for Ford to make the bed out of aluminum and not build it tough enough for "truck work". GM's been using aluminum for years for the hood.

Here we go, a bad recall for Ford followed by some positive news to make Ford favorable again!

Truth exposed...

I laugh every time someone says their Ecoboost mileage isn't what the EPA says it should be: it's all in how they're driven.

You guys smell that? A lot of butt hurt in here from all the GM and Ram guys finally realizing that Ford is the truck leader. I can't wait to see the next aluminum GM truck powered by turbo-charged V-6 with start/stop technology. Lead (Ford), follow (GM), or get out of the way (Ram/Fiat/soon to be Chinese Company)!

Greg is right, if the Chevy Shake is not your thing, you are going to have to opt for the Ford Death Wobble

@Ford orgullosa de ser mexicana,

Stop waisting your time. No one reads your lengthy post and no one clicks on your links. You're literally doing work for no reason. Why do you think no one responds to links you provide? Provide abbreviated comments and move on with your day.

Just wait till the june sales stats come out.... Ford f series is up huge. This blog site will turn into a SH$t show guaranteed on how much f series increased in june.... Gm guys are going to be hurt by there shake and that their bed commercial didnt work as well as gm's 20%+ off their pickups didnt work.

@ Scott-

F Series sales have to be up huge in June because June 2015 was a horrible month for F series.

You guys always forget how bad f series sales were last year so of course the percentage will look good since last year was so bad for Ford.

Anything but an EcoBust:
ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR MIND?? How is 3/4 of a million trucks sold last year horrible?? I don't care what month you are referencing--you can't escape reality.

monthly change in June 2015 was -8.9%. Even accounting for that Ford is up over 20% instead of 29%.

You guys don't want to admit how well Ford is doing. Last year was so horrible, that's why they were up 4%.

At the end of last year, you guys said we had seen the best of Ford. Wrong. The best is yet to come.
