F-150 EcoBoost Still Running After 205,268 Miles



Some may have been skeptical about the reliability of Fordís F-150 EcoBoost, but this post 205,268 miles review should put everyoneís concerns to rest.

First introduced in 2011, V8 fans were questioning the 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost engineís long-term survivability and exhaust sound. Well, this 2011 F-150 XLT is a testament to how well a looked after EcoBoost engine holds up after clocking in over 200,000 miles.

The pickup in the video below still has its original engine, transmission, transfer case, axles and differential. None of them are leaking and the repairs that were performed over the years are just basic things like brake rotors, two spark plug changes, an ignition coil change, a few oxygen sensors and a battery. Also impressive is the pickupís fuel economy average 20.2 mpg.

There are a few more wear and tears, but those generally do happen most pickups thatís had a tough life. The headlight is a bit out of alignment, cracked grille, bent bumper, and even a crack in the windshield.

What we can take away from this video is that proper maintenance is the key to a long engine life even with a V6 EcoBoost. Just keep up with your scheduled fluid changes and bring it in for regular maintenance.

Considering that the 2011 F-150 EcoBoost is used as a construction workerís daily driver, it has held up very well.
