Boosting the Ford Eco Boost [S6 Ep.6-1]
One of the hottest new rigs on the market is the Ford F150 with the new 6
cylinder eco-Boost engine. But is
it all it can be? Well, today on GEARZ Stacey takes a new eco-Boost powered Ford and shows you some simple
upgrades that can Boost performance
AND fuel economy of this great new engine...at a price you can afford.
Then Stacey rolls in the nastiest, grungiest, barn-find Mustang that you can imagine and
shows you the steps and tools required to buff an old nasty paint job back
to life. Did we mention that this paint is BLACK!?! All to prove the point
that if it can be done with a black car...it can be done with any car...and
GEARZ is the show that shows you how to do it!
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.

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.
