First drive: is the new Ford F-150 Ecoboost V6 twin turbo really like a V8?


It may be a cliche but since almost the beginning of time the Ford F-150 has been the best selling pick-up in America…in fact it’s the best selling vehicle of any kind in America.

So now meet the new boss…same as the old boss except that new Ford F-150 has a 365 HP V6 with two turbo chargers that Ford says is better and more fuel efficient than a V8.

Ford also says the new F-150 with the 3.5 liter Ecoboost will tow 11,300 pounds and makes 430 lb-ft of torque and will run on regular fuel while delivering better fuel economy than a competitor’s comparable V8 engine.

Can this be possible?

Watch the video as we take the F-150 with the new V6 Ecoboost engine for a first drive around the block.
