► 2011 Ford F-150 EcoBoost "Head to Head" Towing Competition

► Ford F-150 Hero Engine Tear Down
The block, pistons, turbos, crankshaft,
valves and other internal parts of the 3.5-liter F-150 EcoBoost "hero" engine are still within rigid
factory specifications after enduring testing that simulated 10 years of
wear or about 160,000 miles. In an unprecedented -- and high-stakes --
public reveal, Ford engineers disassembled the engine for the first time in
front of a live audience of nearly 1,000 at the North American
International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit.
► 2011 Ford F-150 Ecoboost Hero Engine - part 2
Ford powertrain engineers will tear down an engine that has gone a distance
equal to six times around the earth and three quarters of the way to the
moon. Or put another way: the engine has the equivalent of 160,000 miles
and 10 years of rugged use. Now, Ford engineers want to see how the
engine's parts and components held up. They will examine it for long-term
durability in front of the public at the North American International Auto
Show in Detroit on Jan. 15, 2011 at 11 a.m.
Ford F-150 Ecoboost vs Chevy Silverado Duramax Pick-up Mashup Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) Ford expects to sell almost 100,000 brand new
EcoBoost twin turbo F-150s this year. With a towing capacity of
just over 11,000 pounds and 360 HP, the F-150 is a class leading pick-up
truck. But how will it do when stacked up against a Chevy Silverado 2500 HD
(heavy duty) with the Duramax turbo
diesel engine? And perhaps even more importantly how do both classic
American pick-ups do when used the way that many people use pick-ups...as
their daily drivers? We took two of America's newest and most popular turbo-charged pick-ups and put them to the
everyman test of comfort, ease of use, and combined that with a very
unusual drag race to see which pick-up was the better daily driver.
2011 Ford F-150 Mashup review: Ecoboost V6 Twin Turbo vs 5.0L V8
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2011 Ford F-150 EcoBoost Twin turbo has been a surprise grand slam for Ford.
Not only has this V6 Twin turbo pick-up
proved to be the most popular engine choice in the country's most popular
vehicle but it also surprised many automotive journalist and buyers with
it's fuel economy, towing capacity and 365 horsepower. So which is the
better F-150? The traditional V8 or the brand new twin turbo V6 EcoBoost? Check out this video as we compare the
two Ford best selling pick-ups to each other.
2013 Ram 1500 vs Ford F-150 vs Chevy Silverado 0-60 MPH Mashup Test & Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) The 2013 Ram 1500 Pick-up ( you may remember it
as a Dodge) is virtually all new. OK, the HEMI engine option remains but
same as the new Ram 1500 is now available with the Chrysler Pentastar V-6
engine and a HEMI V-8. But for 2013 the Ram also gets a new and class first
8 speed transmission, and optional self-leveling air suspension and
(according to Ram) best in class fuel economy. Of course we wanted to know
know just how fast the new Ram 1500 is to 60 MPH and perhaps more
importantly how it competes with the best selling vehicle in America...the
Ford F-150. We also wanted to know how it stacks up against the Chevy
Silverado. If you are curious as well, watch this exclusive TFLcar mashup
review as we test and review all three classic American pick-up trucks and
see which one is fastest to 60 MPH.

2010 Ford F-150 SVT Raptor Ride Review
The Raptor promises to be the most off-road-capable F-150 Ford has ever
built. This pickup is like a street-legal Baja prerunner. In other words,
the SVT Raptor promises to smooth out the worst high-speed desert terrain,
fly over jumps and handle slow-speed four-wheeling better than just about
any production truck. Tall order? Perhaps not.
