Planet Ford employees from both our 45 and 59 stores went to the 2011 Ford F150 Round Up event at Sam Houston Race Park to try out the new 2011 Ford F150. Our employees we’re looking forward to test driving the new 411-horsepower 6.2-liter V8, the 360-hp 5.0-liter V8 and the 300-hp 3.7-liter V6, but it was the top of-the-line EcoBoost V6 that had our employees were very excited for.
According to Ford the 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6 engine is tough enough to take whatever F-150 buyers can throw at it. So how is it possible to know if that’s true? Well our employees test drove the EcoBoost to the extreme to see if Ford could put their money where their mouth is (see pictures). Well we can honestly say that compare to the competition the EcoBoost is the best in class compare to its competition. Test driving the EcoBoost is nothing any of us have experience in a truck. Which we all agree that was a good thing since we see that Ford is moving forward in becoming the leader.
