Ford F-150 EcoBoost rated at 16 mpg city, 22 mpg highwayFri, 07 Jan 2011
The 2011 Ford F-150 EcoBoost is certified to get 16 mpg city and 22 mpg highway, Ford said on Friday.
The F-150 EcoBoost is powered by a 3.5-liter EcoBoost twin-turbo V6 engine. It produces 365 hp and 420 lb-ft of torque. Power is transferred through a six-speed automatic transmission.
"What's important for truck customers is that this all-new engine delivers best-in-class capability where it matters most: towing and hauling. Now they're getting great fuel economy, too," said Doug Scott, Ford Truck Group marketing manager.
The EcoBoost powertrain can trailer-tow 11,300 pounds and carry a maximum payload of 3,060 pounds, Ford said.
The 2011 F-150 EcoBoost will arrive in showrooms later this winter. The EcoBoost V6 is one of four new engines for the 2011 F-150.
