Sales of Ford F-150 with EcoBoost have exceeded 400,000 units.

The Ford F-150 with EcoBoost topped 400,000 in sales since its introduction three years ago. With the advanced Fuel Technology in this engine, drivers are using 45,000 fewer gallons of fuel.

Ford F-150 with EcoBoost launched in 2011 and helped lead to a transformation in the brand. The EcoBoost is a great combination of fuel economy and engine power.

Estimated fuel savings are based on the EPA-estimated combined ratings for 2011-13 F-150 EcoBoost models and for the same mix of 5.4-liter V8-equipped 2010 F-150 models, across 400,000 units and 15,000 miles of driving a year. F-150 EcoBoost sales are comprised mostly of 4×4 trucks with EPA-estimated ratings of 15 mpg city and 17 mpg combined, and a smaller percentage of 4×2 trucks with EPA-estimated ratings of 16 mpg city and 18 mpg combined. Ford has had success transitioning many customers to the new EcoBoost offering.

F-150 EcoBoost is a great example of how our customers save at the pump while outworking the competition,” says Doug Scott, Ford truck group marketing manager.

EcoBoost technology combines smaller overall size with turbocharging, direct injection and variable valve timing to bring customers outstanding performance and fuel economy. This year, EcoBoost will be available on more than 90 percent of North American nameplates, rising to 95 percent by 2015.

“Ford EcoBoost can deliver great performance and lower fuel bills, a recipe that is proving incredibly popular with consumers around the world,” says Joe Bakaj, vice president, powertrain engineering for Ford. “EcoBoost engines are attracting new customers to the Ford brand every day, and our plants are working hard to keep up with demand.”
