    The 2011 Ford F-150 EcoBoost twin turbo V6 has been a surprise grand slam for Ford.

    Not only has this turbocharged and inter-cooled V6 pickup proved to be the most popular engine choice in the country’s most popular vehicle, but it also surprised many automotive journalists and buyers with it’s responsiveness, towing capacity, and 420 lb-ft of torque.

    But is the 2011 Ford F-150 Ecoboost Twin Turbo a better choice over the more traditional V8 powered full-sized pickup?

    We wanted to know which is the better F-150?

    The traditional V8 or the brand new twin turbo V6 Ecoboost?

    Check out this “classic” TFL video for a comparison between the two Ford trucks.

    1. Throwback Thursday: Well I wish I could have thrown back my F150 EcoBoost. The absolute worst vehicle made since WWII. Yes worse than the 6.0 Diesel.

      After two years and the constant power train damage from the condensation issue it became very clear (just like the 6.0 diesel before) Ford had no intention of remedying this major problem.

      I like 19 of 20 of my friends got rid of their EcoBoost. Only 1 went back to the EcoBoost, 3 went with the 5.0 F150 and the rest are split between RAM and Tundra, with one lone Chevy.

      Summary: 16 of my 20 friends (like me) will never be in a Ford again!
