► 2011 Ford F-150 Ecoboost Hero Engine - part 2
Ford powertrain engineers will tear down an engine that has gone a distance
equal to six times around the earth and three quarters of the way to the
moon. Or put another way: the engine has the equivalent of 160,000 miles
and 10 years of rugged use. Now, Ford engineers want to see how the
engine's parts and components held up. They will examine it for long-term
durability in front of the public at the North American International Auto
Show in Detroit on Jan. 15, 2011 at 11 a.m.
► Ford F-150 Hero Engine Tear Down
The block, pistons, turbos, crankshaft,
valves and other internal parts of the 3.5-liter F-150 EcoBoost "hero" engine are still within rigid
factory specifications after enduring testing that simulated 10 years of
wear or about 160,000 miles. In an unprecedented -- and high-stakes --
public reveal, Ford engineers disassembled the engine for the first time in
front of a live audience of nearly 1,000 at the North American
International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit.

2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor Ride Review
The Raptor promises to be the most off-road-capable F-150 Ford has ever
built. This pickup is like a street-legal Baja prerunner. In other words,
the SVT Raptor promises to smooth out the worst high-speed desert terrain,
fly over jumps and handle slow-speed four-wheeling better than just about
any production truck. Tall order? Perhaps not.
