Default Ford reports F-150 sales are being overrun by V6 engines



We can't say we're surprised. After our first sampling of the latest Ford F-150, which received four brand-new engines for the 2011 model year, we signed out the two V6 offerings as the ones most worthy of buyer's consideration. And, lo and behold, Ford F-150s equipped with V6 engines are outselling their V8 counterparts for the third month in a row in the U.S. and the first time since 1985 that V8s weren't the dominant powerplant option in Ford's full-size pickup.

So far in 2011, Ford has sold 313,183 units an eight-per cent increase over last year and enough to keep the F-series the best-selling vehicle in America for the umpteenth year running. Of the two six-cylinder engine options, it's the EcoBoost V6 that's truly stealing the show, and with good reason. With 365 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque compare very favourably with its competitor's top V8s, and it handily outperforms them in EPA-rated fuel mileage (14.7 l/100 km city, 10 l/100 km highway).

Definitely not something they could have said with the previous engine lineup.

I'm hearing and reading nothing but good news and positive results with the eco-boost motor. I think that that the sales are truly showing that the buying public is doing their research and are better informed/educated.

Or that people buy the latest technology because they need the latest and greatest, not necessarily because it's the smartest choice.

That certainly is another possibility.
