Test Drive: 2011 Ford F150 Lariat EcoBoost
For this test drive, we go out in the all new 2011 Ford F150 Lariat,
equipped with the new 3.5L EcoBoost
Twin turbo V6. The purpose of the drive
is to demonstrate the new EcoBoost
engine in varied road conditions. A small portion of the drive also
explains the "Torture Test" that Ford put the engine through, before
releasing it onto the market.
Ecoboost hwy Mileage
This was taken driving from Orlando, FL to show mileage unloaded at 70mph.
3.73 Gears with Max tow pkg.
F150 Ecoboost Real Highway MPG
From Waynesboro to Dulles Intl. Airport, a 74mile trip of mostly highway
driving, but a lot of ups and down especially on the I-70 run to Frederick
there are two hills to go over, and on RT. 15 there are some ups and downs
as you travel towards VA, and there are some stop lights on that road, and
I still got 21.3MPG average pushing 65-75MPH when I could. Total round trip
after I got home 156 miles cause we stopped to eat. 20.9MPG complete. I am
Ford Ecoboost fuel milage lie (proof)
the f150 ecoBoost is advertised to
get 30 mpg. my 2011 f150 fx4 with 373 gears and an ecoBoost engine, shown getting 14 mpg instant. i
had been taking it real easy to get maximize my fuel mileage and had an
average of 14mpg. when i reset it, it was right around there as well. the
dash shows i was on a level road, not going up a hill. cruise control
locked in at 100km/h. the temperature is around 10*C. It has a Truxedo
tonneau cover (no difference with it on or off). it has the 3.73 rear end.
The window sticker in THIS TRUCK said 30mpg highway, 20 city. i took a
picture of the sticker in the truck. i made this video before it was lifted
because i wanted ford to address the issue so they had nothing else to
blame it on.
2011 Ecoboost F150 4x4 launch 0-60 in Rain
I wanted to test the traction capabilities of this new truck in the rain. I
did a 4x4 Boost launch on aged,
slick asphalt with traction control OFF. All four tires spun for a second
but hooked up well. Considering the added drive-train loss driving in 4x4
vs 2x4 and on a slippery road, the truck still did a respectable 6 second
F150 Ecoboost real city MPG
This is my 2011 F150 showing a REAL city MPG's at 16.4 steady. If you guys
want to show your MPG's to the world, at least wait until the trip computer
calculates the average before shooting the video and stop teasing people.
As for those of you who live in flat-lands states where your highways are
perfectly flat and have little or no dips or inclines. PLEASE! do us a
favor, and let people know that your area is mostly flat and stop teasing
people with those videos showing ridiculously high MPG's, because your MPGs
are always going to be high. There are other people watching those videos
believing their F150 ecoBoost will
get the same MPG, when in reality they never will unless they move to a
flat land state. I live and drive around Hagerstown, MD. and this video
reflect my daily commute in and around the city.
