2011 Ford F-150 - New EcoBoost Engine

New EcoBoost™ Engine
Ford engineers drew from their extensive experience using Direct Injection (DI) and Turbocharging in diesel engine development to create the innovative EcoBoost™ engine (available early 2011). DI produces a cooler, denser charge that generates more power per every drop of fuel, while the twin turbochargers boost performance with virtually no perceptible turbo lag. EcoBoost is amazingly powerful, generating 90 percent of its 400 lb.-ft. of torque from 1,500 to 5,500 rpm. So you can depend on it to provide all the power you need, when you need it. And can it tow? The answer is an emphatic yes. F-150 with EcoBoost has best-in-class maximum towing capability at 11,300 pounds.* Best-in-class payload, too, at 3,060 pounds.* The EcoBoost engine underwent over 1900 hours of testing at full-boost conditions, as well as thermal testing to simulate 10 years of operation in the harshest environments. EcoBoost is up to any task you can give it -- and then some.

*When properly equipped. Class is Full-Size Pickups under 8,500 lbs. GVWR vs. 2010/2011 Competitors.
