2012 Ford F-150 Engine Comparison Test Review: V-8 vs. V-6 EcoBoost
Sometimes the most intense rivalries are those that occur between brothers. The occurrence of these “mini-wars” within families is often times most intense when same said siblings are both very talented each in their own very unique ways. This is definitely the case when it comes to the very popular Ford F-150 family and the fraternal sibling rivalry between the 360 horsepower/420 lb. feet of torque 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 and the burly 360 horsepower/380 lb. feet of torque 5.0-liter V-8 engines which were both all new for the 2011 model year.
So in honor of the fact that Ford has two such spectacular engines available now with the 2012 Ford F-150, we scheduled back to back tests of two identically specified 4x4 Supercab models to test out each new F-150 engine.
