Ford?s 2.7L EcoBoost with Auto Start/Stop
Power and efficiency from lower weight. As highlighted in Jay?s [url=cleanmpg.com/forums/showthread.php?t=49185]Ford's 15 F-150 Loses 700 pounds![/url] story, it is not just the weight reduction but also the displacement downsizing that are key multipliers to improve both straight line performance and efficiency. The all-new 2.7-liter EcoBoost with Auto Start-Stop in the next-generation lightweight Ford F-150 is going to possibly make it a game changer. That is if the EPA numbers were not gamed again? The 2.7L EcoBoost will feature Ford?s first Auto Start/Stop process especially tuned for the F-150. Ford tuned it so that it shuts off the engine when the vehicle is at a stop except when towing or in four-wheel drive. When the brake is released, the engine restarts quickly.
