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.

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

Oh you forgot, that was the whole "frame shortage". (rolleyes)

Convenient excuse when there were a bunch of dealers backed up with new 2015 F-150's that started rolling out $8k in incentives on the select configurations during that exact same timeframe (May-June 15). There was certainly no truck shortage at the Ford dealer down the road from me. They had dozens of 2015's that hadn't moved in months. Nobody was willing to be the sucker that pays full sticker price to be Ford's guinea pig.
