Ford has Sold 1 Million EcoBoost-Powered F-150s

Since 2011, Ford has moved one million F-150s with turbocharged EcoBoost engines under the hood. 

Ford now offers two different EcoBoost engines in the F-150, a 2.7-liter V6 and a 3.5-liter V6, which together represent 60 percent of F-150 sales. The smaller 2.7-liter, which was introduced in 2015, sells the most of all the engines in the lineup with 32 percent of F-150 buyers opting for it.

For 2016, Ford is showing some love to the 3.5-liter EcoBoost, bumping its torque to above 450 lb-ft, though the exact number is still under wraps. An all-new 10-speed automatic transmission is also being paired with the big EcoBoost next year.

Ford says that the EcoBoost buying trend is accelerating. It took 1,000 days to move the first 400,000 EcoBoost engines, while in just about 2,000 days, F-150 managed to top one million EcoBoosts sold. In 2016 alone, EcoBoost has powered 300,00 F-150s.

    And critics said six-cylinder pickups would never sell, HA!

    Not real auto critics, just close-minded truck owners. I had the chance to drive both the 2.7 and 3.5 motors for the 2016 model year. I drove the 2.7 first and found that it felt at least as powerful and responsive as the 5.4 in my truck. The 3.5 blew me away with how much power it had. After those drives, there was no doubt in my mind that these motors could do the job. And the 2.7 would be fine for all but the heaviest of towing and hauling.
