Thumbs up Ecoboost Truck

FTC was recently sent two 2011 F-150 ecoboost trucks to test drive for the day....
Full story coming soon.

I cant wait to know some times as in, 0-60, 1/4 mile
I have read positive feedback on the towing capabilites;

Who got to drive ?

F-150, already the bestseller in a top market segment now comes with Eco-boost technology, high-tech features like twin turbochargers, direct injection, and a focus on fuel efficiency...I am sure on the road this truck drives like a dream giving a feeling of car.Though the Eco-boost is performing really well, I think there will many people who prefer V8 with less moving parts..what all you think..?

To be honest, the truck was OK, no majoy body style changes or any fancy upgrades. The truck I drove was a 6 cyl F-150 so that wasnt impressive to me at all.

The truck has the water cooled turbo hence "eco-boost" and it performed rather well... I like trucks you can hear and this truck you could barely hear, so I wasn't impressed with that as well.

Long story short, if you are looking for a fast truck that is great on gas and will not wake up your neighbors, this is the truck to get. We have the pics on the FTC facebook page, I will be sure to upload them here as well.
