Raptor F150 EcoBoost Ahoy

Ford is investing $145m for the Raptor F150 EcoBoost V6, specifically the factory the engine will be produced in so we could be seeing a large amount of EcoBoost trucks in the future with a shorter waiting time.

Glad to hear that is happening since the demand for these will be a lot and the last thing they need is delays in getting them to customers. Fortunate for Ford they're still one of the best truck brands to go with so any delays shouldn't affect them too much at all.

The EcoBoost engines have been a huge success so I am not surprised that they are expanding the factory and doubling down on the engine and putting them in more trucks. This is good news.

Indeed, great for the workers at that factory since they'll have a consistent stream of work to do.

That sounds awesome! Seems like alot of drivers or owners out there, like the added ecoboost to their trucks.

Looking forward for the future concept with the ecoboost!

Only downside is you have that percentage that still want a V8 and nothing else, they won't accept the idea of the Ecoboost. Might just be a matter of seeing how well it performs and even sounds. At low RPM's it has a bit of a V8 rumble.
