Ford Announces 2015 F150 2.7L EcoBoost V6 Power, Towing Numbers

Ford announced back in January that the company would introduce a new 2.7L EcoBoost V6 for the 2015 F150 which caused many skeptics to question whether it would be “enough motor” for the bestselling truck in America, but with the formal announcement of the power figures for the next generation F150 – those skeptics will need to find a new point to critique.

Current Ford F Series Sales Dip as Buyers Wait for 2015 F150

The Ford F150 and the rest of the F Series lineup have been selling in incredible numbers over the past 18 months, but as the arrival of the all new 2015 F150 draws near, sales of the current F150 have slowed as consumers are likely waiting for the launch of the next generation Ford pickup – either to buy that new model or to try to score a deal on a current model.

As all of the automakers work to come up with the most fuel efficient vehicles possible, the 2015 Ford F150 could call upon the new 2.3L EcoBoost 4-cylinder that will power the 2015 Ford Mustang to create a Super Fuel Economy model that would offer far less trucking capabilities and far better fuel economy – essentially battling the fuel economy of the midsized truck market with an F150.

A Hard Working Review of the 2014 Toyota Tundra Platinum Crew Max

I got the pleasure of putting a few hundred miles on the 2014 Toyota Tundra at the launch earlier this year and while I was impressed by the new model during normal daily driving – the true measure of a proper full size pickup is the ability to do the harder jobs and in this review, I put the new Toyota pickup through the paces of a proper work truck.

2014 Ram 2500 Laramie Limited Review: Luxury Meets the Segment's Toughest Truck

While hard working pickups like the 2015 Ram 2500 were once designed with nothing but the ability to tow and haul as much weight as possible, the upscale shift in these heavy haulers have led to trucks that can do more than pickups of the past while also packing an interior that could comfortably pose as a luxury model – creating what I like to call “the Boss’ truck.”
