“Ford is delivering great fuel economy across our lineup, from EcoBoost in our F-150 and 15 other vehicles to our electrified vehicles,” says Doug Scott, Ford truck group marketing manager. “Fuel economy is the No. 1 unmet need for truck customers, which is why the F-150 EcoBoost’s leading combination of fuel economy and capability is resonating so well.”
F-150 EcoBoost helped F-Series surpass 60,000 sales in October, the sixth-straight month it achieved this milestone – and the first time since the period of April through September 2006.
F-150 EcoBoost Saves 45 Million Gallons of Gas Annually
Ford’s strategy to deliver fuel-saving technology across its lineup is helping customers conserve at the pump, with F-150 owners making a big dent in gasoline usage.
In fact, F-150 EcoBoost owners collectively are saving an estimated 45 million gallons of gas annually, while out-towing competitive trucks of similar vintage by at least 1,000 pounds.
“F-150 EcoBoost is a great example of how our customers save at the pump while outworking the competition,” says Scott.
Ford recently celebrated the 2-millionth EcoBoost engine produced globally since the 2009 launch of the engine line. Growing customer demand for EcoBoost-powered vehicles in major markets worldwide is driving engine production higher. Factory output now averages more than 100,000 engines per month, up from 65,000 units in 2012.
“Ford EcoBoost can deliver great performance and lower fuel bills, a recipe that is proving incredibly popular with consumers around the world,” says Joe Bakaj, vice president, powertrain engineering for Ford. “EcoBoost engines are attracting new customers to the Ford brand every day, and our plants are working hard to keep up with demand.”
