Ford is Helping to Save 45 Million Gallons of Gas Each Year!

The Ford F-150 EcoBoost® engine is not quite three years old, but it has had a major impact: Since February 2011, F-150 EcoBoost sales have reached 400,000. And there’s more: F-150 EcoBoost owners are collectively saving an estimated 45 million gallons of gas annually!

And try this on for size: That estimated 45 million gallons of fuel savings exceeds the estimated fuel savings of all Toyota and Tesla plug-in electrified vehicles sold in the U.S.!  The savings are based on the EPA-estimated combined ratings for 2011-13 F-150 EcoBoost models and for the same mix of 5.4-liter V8-equipped 2010 F-150 models, across 400,000 units and 15,000 miles of driving a year.

Now, “Fuel economy” and “truck” historically didn’t go so easily hand in hand, but when Ford introduced the F-150 EcoBoost, it proved truck customers could indeed have a two-in-one special. And those 45 million gallons of gas saved?

Curious about how the demographics break down? In the U.S. northwest, F-150 customers choose EcoBoost 45 percent of the time compared to the national average of 38 percent. Oregon and Washington – the second- and third-fastest growing states, respectively, according to a June CNN Money report – are key markets for F-150 EcoBoost sales. F-150 EcoBoost sales are comprised mostly of 4×4 trucks with EPA-estimated ratings of 15 mpg city and 17 mpg combined, and a smaller percentage of 4×2 trucks with EPA-estimated ratings of 16 mpg city and 18 mpg combined.

Ford recently celebrated the two-millionth EcoBoost engine produced globally since the 2009 launch of the engine line.

Ben B I’d love to have Ford build me a 2015 Expedition EL Limited with an all aluminum body (like the new F150) an EcoBoost engine and an 8 speed transmission for gas mileage. For towing, I would think that with today’s technology the tow mode could be governed to use only 6 gears. Build me one of these beast & I’ll trade my 2010 in a heartbeat. I would enjoy having Ford ahead of the competition in the large suv market. Thanks, Ben

Ben B I read this article & cannot understand why we with the Ford Expedition EL family cannot be offered a choice of an EcoBoost engine. My 2010 Expedition has been a fantastic vehicle. You have a good thing going with 3rd row seats that go flush etc. Hopefully someday you'll also offer us a chance to save fuel with an EcoBoost. Thanks, Ben
