Default F-150 Eco-Boost Torture Test

As my user name states I'm a bit of a PBR fan. I got this today in an email from PBR.
Thought you guys might be interested.

NBC to debut the F-150 EcoBoost
Torture Test after PBR

After the PBR on NBC this weekend, make sure you stay tuned to watch one of the toughest stories around. The new Ford F-150 EcoBoost engine is Built Ford Tough. To prove just how tough that is, Ford ran it through a punishing gauntlet of challenges called the F-150 EcoBoost Torture Test. They froze it, fried it, flogged it and even ran Baja with it. See all the torture Sunday, April 10th at 4:30pm EST; immediately following the PBR Built Ford Tough Invitational on NBC.

Yeah, found out they were on you tube after posting. I should have known they were. The way the email was written I thought it was new stuff. Oh well, it's suppose to rain tomorrow so, there will be nothing else to do but watch tv anyways.

We were having a little mustang club get together Thursday evening at the local SVT dealer and the auto transporter showed up with new inventory. One of the F-150s was an eco-boost Lariat. It was stickered at C$50,000. The 3.5L eco-boost was a C$1000.00 option.
