Ford’s EcoBoost engine technology was the direct result of the government’s necessary quest to wean America’s drivers off of fossil fuels, while it was welcomed by the EPA with open arms, it came with major hurdles when it was time to sell the trucks at the dealerships.
Not only were buyers skeptical that the V6 could tow as much as the V8, but they had doubts about the longevity of the high-stress forced-induction engine.
However, evidence has emerged that might just contradict the haters. That is because the video has just surfaced on YouTube by Daniel Jaeger Films of the 2011 F-150 fitted with Ford’s 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6.
The odometer shows the impressive 205,268 miles on the clock, which is good for any engine, especially so for one that has to deal with the high pressures that a turbocharger feeds it.
So how does this engine stay so spry well into its golden years? So, as any good doctor would tell you, regular maintenance and not going too long without the oil change.
Underneath, the rubber components seem to have held up well because according to the mechanic, not the single component, engine, differential, or transfer case, is leaking.
Despite the mileage, truck’s relative newness probably has something to do with how well it is held up, but the main point to take away is that regular maintenance do wonders for any vehicle, turbocharged or otherwise.
