    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.

    How about you stop taking threads OT and discuss this in the OT section where it belongs, eh?

    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.
