The Ford Motor Company
recently celebrated the sale of its 500,000th 3.5 liter V6 EcoBoost Equipped Ford F-150. To commemorate the event, Ford put together the above the infographic commemorating the EcoBoost’s impact.
The EcoBoost engine debuted more than 3 years ago, and in a 38 month span, the EcoBoost is helping the environment. The Ford F-150 with EcoBoost has helped drivers save an estimated 56.8 million gallons of gas on an annual basis. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, this is the equivalent of:
- The annual greenhouse gas impact of 413,895 acres of U.S. forests
- A city in which 70,000 homes going without electricity for a year
- 6,685 tanker trucks’ worth of gasoline
- Installing 139 wind turbines
Ford describes the EcoBoost engine a “gas-powered engine with diesel-type capability.” The EcoBoost engine features segment-exclusive technologies including turbocharging and direct fuel injection.
This combination of turbocharging and direct fuel injection delivers a wealth of low-end torque and maintains it across a broad rpm range, which is key in towing applications.
The 3.5-liter EcoBoost truck engine delivers 420 lb.-ft. of torque and 365 horsepower to enable towing of up to 11,300 pounds – more than enough to tow a fully loaded, three-horse trailer or a large boat. Plus, this engine does it all on regular fuel and with outstanding fuel economy.
The EcoBoost is also made right here in Northeast Ohio at the Cleveland Engine Plant.
