2011 Ford F-150 with ECOBoost "Logs" Heavy-Duty Hours At Oregon Timber Company
Oregon by dragging logs weighing from two to almost five tons.
2011 Ford F-150 EcoBoost "hero engine" demonstrates its best-in-class 420 lb.-ft of torque, especially its wealth of low-end torque, in Oregon by dragging logs weighing from two to almost five tons
Dyno stress web documentary shows this same engine already enduring the equivalent of 150,000 miles on the dynamometer, replicating the duty cycle of the harshest-use customer.
The 2011 Ford F-150 EcoBoost recently logged some tough miles in rugged Pacific Northwest country in the latest demonstration of its durability.
The new 3.5-liter EcoBoost "torture test" truck engine moved from the lab to the real world with a stop at a logging company in Oregon. It's the current phase of a multi-part series of Web-based documentaries that began when this randomly selected EcoBoost engine endured the equivalent of 150,000 miles or 10 years' use on the dynamometer, replicating the duty cycle of the harshest-use customer.
After the Dyno torture testing, the engine was dropped into a new 2011 Ford F-150 to work as a log skidder for Nygaard Logging of Warrenton, OR. Skidding is the process of moving harvested timber, after the branches have been removed, from the forest to a staging area where it is placed on a truck to be sent to a sawmill.
The 2011 Ford F-150 EcoBoost replaced a vehicle similar to a backhoe that "ropes" the harvested timber using high-strength cables and drags it to the staging area.
The work was performed at Clatsop State Forest, where the 2011 F-150 EcoBoost pulled logs weighing from 4,000 to 9,000 pounds. That's where the new engine's best-in-class torque of 420 lb.-ft. at 2,500 rpm was essential -- especially low-end torque. Up to 90 percent of the EcoBoost truck engine's peak torque is available from 1,700 rpm to 5,000 rpm -- all on regular fuel.

Watch this incredible footage as we drage race truck after truck. We had a "pro tree" and to race with. We tested Ford against Ford, Ford against Dodge, Ford against Chevy. Hands down the EcoBoost engine outperformed all Ford V8s and all Dodge and Chevy V8s.

#3: 2011 Ford F-150 "Beat to Hell and Back" 3.5L EcoBoost on the Race Track... The Saga Continues
Our Ford built 3.5L EcoBoosted "Hero engine is at it again and this time, it's a real "Ball Buster". The old girl recently took a truly "roundabout" way to demonstrate its already beyond the edge durability and now best-in-class towing capability.
The new truck/engine combination racked up 1,606 miles towing 11,300 pounds while circling the 1.5-mile Homestead-Miami Speedway oval at an average speed of 82 mph. It's the latest test in a series of web-based documentaries to demonstrate the durability of the new 3.5-liter EcoBoost truck engine.
EcoBoost is fundamental to Ford's strategy to provide technologically advanced, high-output, smaller-displacement powertrains that deliver uncompromised performance and fuel economy. EcoBoost engines deliver fuel economy gains of up to 20 percent compared with larger, less-efficient engines.
In addition to turbocharging with direct injection, Ford engineers have enhanced EcoBoost's technology capabilities by adding variable valve timing and precisely controlling all aspects of the engine. Ford has at least 125 patents on its EcoBoost technology.
The high-speed maximum towing test is the current phase of a testing program that started when this randomly selected EcoBoost engine endured the equivalent of 150,000 miles or 10 years' use on the dynamometer, replicating the duty cycle of the harshest-use customer.
After the "Dyno Stress" torture testing, the engine was installed into a new 2011 Ford F-150 to work as a log skidder in Oregon, dragging logs weighing up to nearly five tons.
2013 Ford F-150 FX4 EcoBoost Review, Walkaround, Exhaust, Test Drive
What we think is the best looking trim level in the 2013 F-150 lineup. The new features really elevate the truck to a more high tech and premium level. The 3.5L Twin turbo V6 moves the truck with authority and brings with it best in class MPG. It's hard to find fault in this best seller for Ford, other than the fact that it is pricier than it's competitors although it shows in how it's built and the way it drives.
Ford F-150 EcoBoost Torture Test Episode 6: Teardown
Check out the video of the Teardown of engine 448AA that endured over 160,000 miles of torture. Watch as engineers Jim Mazuchowski and Phil Fabien discuss the Torture Test program and how the engine held up.
2011 Ford F-150 Ecoboost V6 twin turbo first drive review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) It may be a cliche but since almost the beginning of time the Ford F-150 has been the best selling pick-up in America...in fact it's the best selling vehicle of any kind in America. So now meet the new boss...same as the old boss except that new Ford F-150 has a 365 HP V6 with two turbo chargers that Ford says is better and more fuel efficient than the old V8. Can this be possible? Watch the video as we take the F-150 with the new V6 EcoBoost engine for a first drive around the block.
All new Ford F-150 EcoBoost Baja Truck Engine Swap
After months of hard work, the 2011 Ford F-150 EcoBoost "hero engine" has been installed in a race truck to take on the Tecate SCORE Baja 1000 desert endurance race this month. This same engine first endured 150,000 harsh user miles on the dynamometer, then was dropped into a new 2011 Ford F-150 to work as a log skidder in Oregon, tow a maximum trailer load at high speeds around a NASCAR track and beat the competition in a towing exercise at Davis Dam.
#16 of 22 2011 Ford F-150 BFT Roundup -- 2011 Dodge Ram Hemi Towing Test vs Ecoboost 3.5L Atlanta
We tested the 2011 Dodge Ram Hemi by towing a 6,500 lb trailer on Interstate 20 in Atlanta GA near Six Flags. We were comparing it to the Ford 3.5L EcoBoost engine. We kept the pedal pegged and it stayed at 5,000 RPM and took FOREVER to go from 70 MPH to 80 MPH. It was a nice looking truck, but definitely not as powerful as the EcoBoost....quite surprising.
