The U.S. automaker Ford can boast of producing the best-selling truck in Canada for 46 years. In fact, the vehicles of the Ford F series have sold over 35 million units since their introduction in 1948. The greatest value of the company is probably its neverending eagerness to meet the needs of customers. The Ford F-150 2012 offers the new Ecoboost V6 engine that retains the renowned Ford power while increasing its energy efficiency. The F-150 remains the pick-up with the best towing capability of its class and the best fuel efficiency. The EcoBoost 6-cylinder engine replaces the 8-cylinder engine while delivering the same power. The consequences of such a change are more than positive: it produces as much power, reduces fuel consumption and reduces emissions. Get more details in the article on the Ecoboost Engine.
In addition to high efficiency, the F-150 2012 offers several configurations of engine, cab and box. Customizing your own according to your needs is another great Ford strength. A few examples:
