Where’s Ford? Ford was invited to this test but did not want to provide us with an F-150 powered by the base 3.7L V-6. Instead we were offered Ford’s 3.5L direct-injected, turbocharged EcoBoost. Yes, it’s a V-6, but with power levels closer to a V-8 (365 hp, 420 lb-ft), and a price tag to match: about $2,000 on the option sheet. To keep this test as apples-to-apples as possible, we opted to test the EcoBoost another day.
