If you’re looking to get the most out of your F-150’s, especially in savings, you should consider upgrading to the 2.7L EcoBoost® engine! With its port fuel and direct injection technology, this entry-level EcoBoost engine is more than just its small size. Take a look at our list of reasons why upgrading to the 2.7L version is the best choice you can make for your F-150!
Not a lot of engines on the market can do what EcoBoost engines do. Ford’s revolutionary Engine technology includes a combined Port Fuel (PFI) and Direct Injection (DI) Fuel System to give you more power for less. With other engines you’d get on a Chevrolet Silverado or Ram 1500, they give you between 355-395 horsepower with an oversized 5.0L V8. However, Ford’s 2.7L EcoBoost® engine hits the perfect spot with its technology because it’s capable of producing 325 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque, so it can do way more, with less.
Of course, another big selling point for EcoBoost® engines is that they’re capable of producing high horsepower and torque while remaining incredibly fuel-efficient compared to most engines. On the 2.7L engine, you get a consumption rate of 12.7 L/100km in the city, 9.8 on the highway, and 11.4 combined, which is one of the most fuel-efficient options you can find on a truck. With other engines you’d find that’s equivalent on a Silverado or Ram, they’d consume up to 2 to 3 litres more, even though Ford’s engine performs just as well, while consuming less!
A Better Value
Not only does the 2.7L EcoBoost engine perform more with less, but it also provides you with huge savings in the long run! Upgrading to the 2.7L EcoBoost® engine on the XLT 302a costs $2,600 less than upgrading to the 3.5L version, and it’s $1,900 less on the Lariat 502a model. But how does spending the extra money pay off? The fuel consumption rate on the 2.7L version helps you save even more at the pump, with other engines on the market costing you almost $500 extra every year.
