Fuel-efficient F-150s get thumbs-up
Customers are as happy with the new F-150's V6 EcoBoost® engine as with their favorite V8, as Ford proves people will move in large numbers to smaller engines. F-150's EcoBoost engine and another fuel-saving technology – electric power-assisted steering – earned high ratings in Ford's 2011 U.S. Global Quality Research System (GQRS), a quarterly survey conducted by the RDA Group.
