Hands On: 2011 Ford F-150 4x4 Supercrew King Ranch with the EcoBoost 3.5L V6

Big truck with small truck fuel economy


A couple weeks back I got to spend a week driving the 2011 Ford F-150 4x4 Supercrew King Ranch with the EcoBoost 3.5L V6 engine under the hood. I have driven for trucks with both gasoline and diesel engines, but this was my first time with the EcoBoost engine. The truck Ford sent over for me to test out was fully loaded and had tons of room inside. The truck was fitted with the King Ranch package.

That King Ranch Package gives the F-150 a nicer interior than many luxury cars I have tested over the years. I love that the inside of the King Ranch has so much contrasting color and it is real leather, you can smell it when you open the door. The truck had a 4x4 system and all the power goodies you could want. Options included power seats that were heated and cooled in the front. The rear seats are heated and the truck has navigation and a Sony stereo.

I love the navigation system that Ford uses and you can control everything with your voice thanks to Sync. The real story here is the engine under the hood. The EcoBoost 3.5L V6 is a twin-turbocharged engine with loads of power and torque that gets 15mpg in the city and 21mpg on the highway. I averaged less than that in my testing with my lead foot.

The 2011 Ford F-150 4x4 Supercrew King Ranch has plenty of power to get the massive vehicle moving. It's no Mustang, but considering the size of this truck, the power from the engine is more than enough to get you into traffic and pass slower cars. You even get slight turbo whine at low speeds, which is really cool to hear.

I prefer the massive torque of the diesel version of the F-150 personally, but if you want power and fuel economy the EcoBoost is worth a very hard look. The engine is smooth, quiet at speed, and has the power and torque you need for off-roading and hauling trailers.

The ride is as expected for a pickup truck designed for hauling thousands of points and driving off-road. That is to say, the springs are stiff and the truck can get a little bouncy on normal streets. However, the truck is comfortable and drives very well given its size. The truck is surprisingly quiet on the highway too. I liked this EcoBoost version better than the normal V8. If you are in the market for a new truck and you need size and power, but want to save on fuel the 2011 Ford F-150 4x4 Supercrew King Ranch with the EcoBoost is really worth a look. The as tested price for this truck was $50,935.
