Three-cylinder Ford Outruns Ferrari on the Ring

Thumbnail

Even though Ford’s advanced EcoBoost technology allows smaller engines to deliver the same kind of power as their bigger brethren—but with better fuel efficiency—some folks may have been surprised to learn the Blue Oval would outfit some of its next-gen products with a three-cylinder powerplant—but probably not as surprised as companies like Ferrari or Lamborghini . After all, a specially designed, street-legal Formula Ford racer, holstering a 1.0-liter EcoBoost I3 engine, just blistered its way through the famed Nurburgring racecourse in just 7:22, besting supercars such as the Lamborghini Aventador (powered by a 700-hp V12) and Ferrari Enzo (packing a V12 worth 660 hp). In fact, the three-cylinder Ford set the 11 th fastest time ever on the Nordschleife circuit.

Thumbnail

Having already hauled away the Motor Trend Truck of the Year Award, the 2012 Ford F-150 has now been named the industry’s top half-ton pickup by Truckin’—the “World’s Leading Trucking Publication.” And this was no mere popularity contest, as the F-150 SuperCrew won the title in hard-fought comparison testing against the competition. “Ford stepped up to the plate and hit a grand slam with the EcoBoost F-150 FX2,” said Maxwell Matthewson, feature editor for Truckin’. “They gave the consumer everything they wanted in one package: impeccable styling, remarkable performance, and gas mileage that doesn’t punch you in the gut at the fuel pump.” That’s because for this particular faceoff, Ford also gave the truck the full FX2 appearance and luxury treatment, with a powerful yet efficient EcoBoost V6 engine
