Ford hits one million F150 Ecoboost sales

Ford has announced that it has sold more than one million F-150 pickups with EcoBoost engines in the USA.

“We are proving that with advanced technologies like EcoBoost and high-strength, military-grade, aluminum-alloy construction, Ford continues to outperform the competition by virtually every metric,” said Doug Scott, Ford truck group marketing manager. “EcoBoost is delivering the value, capability and performance F-150 customers insist upon, while helping improve their No. 1 demand – better fuel economy.”

The F-150 is the only truck in its segment to offer a turbocharged direct injection engine. The 2.7-liter EcoBoost with standard auto Start-Stop offers EPA-estimated fuel economy of 19 mpg city and 26 mpg highway for F-150. This autumn, it will be joined by an all-new second-generation 3.5-liter EcoBoost with standard Auto Start-Stop and an all-new 10-speed automatic transmission.

Ford states that while it took more than 1,000 days to sell the first 400,000 EcoBoost engines, it has taken only 2,000 days to sell over one million – and that trend is accelerating. According to Ford, the 2.7-liter EcoBoost is selling at a 'breakneck pace', with more than 13,000 orders placed in the last two months. Combined with the 3.5-liter version, the two EcoBoost engines have sold more than 300,000 units in 2016 alone. Ford is readjusting its expectations on when two million EcoBoost-powered F-150s will be reached.
