While it’s no secret that the 2016 Ford F-150 is known as the smartest, toughest, and most capable version of the truck yet, it’s also true that it’s just the latest in a long line of excellent Ford F-150 models. One of these models, the Ford F-150 with EcoBoost engine, has just hit an impressive milestone. Last month, this version of the popular truck with the award-winning EcoBoost engine reached the one million mark in U.S. sales since 2011.
Selling a million units of any vehicle is an impressive feat, but there’s another element to this milestone for the Ford F-150 EcoBoost. As the name “EcoBoost” suggests, this engine not only provides immense power and a great driving experience, but it was also created to increase the fuel efficiency of every model it powers. In the case of the Ford F-150, it has proven to be an incredibly popular option, with the 2.7 liter EcoBoost engine and the 3.5 liter EcoBoost engine accounting for over 60 percent of all Ford F-150 sales. And the craftsmanship of the engine and eco-consciousness of buyers has paid off – over the next 12 months, drivers of the Ford F-150 EcoBoost will save over 110 million gallons of gasoline, which could translate to as much as $235 million in saved fuel costs.
As a million units sold proves, the combination of an incredibly powerful truck and an eco-friendly engine is powerful. For drivers who want the best without sacrificing their wallet or their environment, there’s no better choice than this acclaimed Ford truck.
