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.
Ford Ecoboost Animation
Sticking with the recent trend of 'less is more', Ford has unveiled its new
series of EcoBoost 4-cylinder
engines at the Frankfurt motor show today.
2011 Ecoboost vs 2005 H2 Tow off
My brother and I wanted a laugh so we made this video. This is a 2005 H2 in
4x4 high vs my 2011 F150 EcoBoost
also in 4x4 high. This is a battle of traction and power. The F150 had no
trouble spinning the tires with the LT 275/70R18 Duratrac tires, where the
H2 couldn't even break loose.
2014 RAM 1500 Eco Diesel Review and Road Test
Join me as I drive the 2014 RAM 1500 Eco Diesel, the only diesel 1/2-ton
pickup truck sold in America. In perhaps the biggest shake up in this
high-volume and highly competitive segment, Chrysler jammed a 3.0L turbo diesel V6 under the RAM's hood and mated
it to a ZF 8-Speed automatic to create the best towing rig for the money.
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
2012 F150 Ecoboost MPG
This is me doing a round trip on the highway to show that it is indeed
possible to achieve great fuel economy with the new F150 EcoBoost truck. I did a round trip to show that
there is no advantage due to any hills, for the hills would be cancelled
out on the way back. Most people think this is just awesome that it gets
such great MPG, but there are still those that disagree and think it's all
a hoax even with evidence showing otherwise. Let me know what you think!
Thanks for watching!
