How Well Does Ford’s 3.5 Liter EcoBoost V6 Work In The New F-150?


Ford’s gone to some extraordinary lengths to prove the reliability of the EcoBoost V6, including dyno testing a motor beyond 100k miles, then using it to skid logs, pull a trailer around Miami Homestead speedway for 12 hours and race Chevy and Dodge in a trailer pulling competition. The same motor was then used to race the Baja 1000, finishing the race without any mechanical issues.

   

The first question from most truck guys will be, “how does the EcoBoost V6 stack up against V8s from Chevy and Dodge?” Unfortunately, this video only shows you an EcoBoost equipped F-150 eating a 3.7 liter Ford V6 for lunch; it does, however give us a time for the quarter mile of 14.67 seconds at 94.6 miles per hour. Bangshift tells us that there are, um, “computer enhancements” that can be made to drop the time to the low 14s, before you even begin spending money on stuff like intakes and exhaust systems.

By comparison, a 2011 Chevy Silverado HD with the 403 cubic inch V8 ran the quarter mile in 15.6 seconds (nearly a second slower) and a 2010 Dodge Ram 2500 PowerWagon with the 5.7 liter Hemi ran the quarter in 16.1 seconds. For now, I’d score that as advantage, Ford.

Each of my posts is a sincere attempt to correlate & compound the collective knowledge of this community for the benefit of myself & all Mach1 owners who read these pages today, and in the future!
