    Ford F150's get Turbo V6 Option

    This is pretty cool:

    Ford Motor Co. promised that its EcoBoost suite of engine technologies would spread throughout its lineup, and today the automaker announced another significant application for the power- and fuel-efficiency-enhancing EcoBoost V6: the 2011 F-150 pickup with perhaps 20 mpg overall fuel economy.

    The turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost (right) joins Ford's snarly 5-liter V8 and a normally aspirated 3.7-liter V6 as new additions to the F-150 powertrain portfolio as Ford at once tries to make the half-ton pickup more relevant - and saleable - in a U.S. market that turned its back on pickups several years ago after a fuel-price scare followed by a deep and stubborn recession.

    You wouldn't believe what some of these eco boost v6's can put out.

    Some of the single turbos put out HUGE numbers.

    The ecoboost motor is a great engine. It has a lot of potential.
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    Exactly, although the F150 motor lineup is a bit crowded now.

    They are saying the ecoboost turbo is going to have the same towing rating as the 6.2 V8, that is insane.
