Ford F-150 Ecoboost Hits 400,000 Sales
Total Articles: 11
Ford trucks are seeing a strong upward trend in new vehicle sales for the year 2013. This may be a sign that the overall economy is finally beginning to pull out of the several year long slump that begun in early 2008. Since the economic recession of 2008, car and truck sales have been somewhat weak, however, all that is changing.
Just to highlight how well Ford trucks are selling, the Ford F-150 EcoBoost sales recently hit 400,000 in the United States. The EcoBoost has been on the market since early 2011. It is also speculated that these 400,000 truck sales have saved Americans roughly 45 million gallons of fuel every year, setting a new benchmark for big truck fuel efficiency. The 45 million gallons of fuel that the EcoBoost is saving Americans every year is far more in fuel savings than what Tesla and Toyota produced with all of their electric and hybrid models combined.
What is even more impressive about this huge annual fuel savings, is that the Ford F-150 EcoBoost has towed and hauled more loads than any other competing truck line, illustrating just about fuel efficiency the truck actually is.
In addition to huge sales for the Ford F-150 EcoBoost, the F Series in general has been outselling all of its competitors, eclipsing the nearest competitor by a full 67%. According to research the F-150 EcoBoost made up roughly 45% of all F-150 truck sales. This is thought to be strictly due to the unparalleled fuel efficiency of the truck model. With gasoline prices still pretty high nationwide, truck owners are looking to save money on fill up costs now more so than ever before.
According to Doug Scott, Ford Truck Manager of Marketing, truck customers and prospective buyers have now placed fuel efficiency as the number one attribute that they desire in a new vehicle. These prospective customers all want uncompromised powerful performance out of their truck along with this great fuel efficiency standard. That in a nutshell is why the electrified Ford F-150 EcoBoost is so high in demand with new truck consumers.
In addition to the 400,000 EcoBoost sales, Ford has also recently celebrated another major milestone. Early this year Ford marked the two millionth EcoBoost engine produced since early 2009. This is a global figure, showing just how popular Ford's fuel efficiency engine line is doing. Two million engines produced since 2009 blows the doors off of any of the nearest competitors in fuel efficiency truck engine production. Prices for fuel are not just rising across North America, but they're also rising worldwide, especially in Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and Asia.
Ford recently stated in an interview that they are now currency producing 100,000 EcoBoost engines a month, which is nearly unimaginable it is so large. This figure has grown since 2012 when 65,000 EcoBoost engines were being produced per month, which shows just how fast fuel efficiency demand in trucks has grown in a short span of time.
So if you're in the market for a new truck that is both extremely fuel efficient and very powerful, then be sure to consider the Ford F-150 EcoBoost. You simply will not find a comparable truck on the market, as the EcoBoost line is unrivaled.
The F-150 EcoBoost boasts a 3.5L Ti-VCT 4-Valve V6 engine with a fully electronic engine control system. The engine is extremely powerful with 365 horsepower and 420 pounds of torque. With all of the power you can haul or toe large loads and the engine won't even break a sweat. Even if you're traveling around winding bends and up hills, the EcoBoost's engine will have you gliding through the most rugged and demanding terrain.
