Ford Invests $500 Million for 2015 F150 EcoBoost Production

When the 2015 Ford F150 arrives later this year, it will feature a new 2.7L EcoBoost engine which the Motor Company believes will be the most efficient half ton truck engine on the market and to prepare for production of that super efficient twin turbocharged V6, Ford has invested $500 million into the Lima Engine facility in Ohio.

Ford announced shortly after the introduction of the new 2.7L EcoBoost for the 2015 F150 that this new twin turbo V6 would be built at the Lima Engine facility rather than the Cleveland Engine facility where the uber popular 3.5L EcoBoost V6 has been produced since it was introduced in 2009. You would think that these similarly designed twin turbocharged V6 engines would be built at the same location, but considering the massive popularity of the 3.5L EcoBoost V6 in the current F150, the Taurus SHO, the Explorer Sport, the current police vehicles and much more – Ford opted to call on a slightly less busy facility to build the newest EcoBoost offering.
