Ford F-150 EcoBoost Tops 100K Sales
Life sure was different back in 1985. Ronald Reagan was begining his second term as president of the United States, Coca-Cola introduced “New Coke,” the movie Back to the Future premiered, and researchers found the wreck of the Titanic (to name just a few of the year’s highlights). And 1985 also marked a notable milestone for Ford, as it was the last year the company sold at least 100,000 V6-powered pickups—until 2011, that is. Thanks to the success of the Ford F-150 EcoBoost, featuring an advanced 3.5-liter V6 engine, the Blue Oval has topped that mark yet again, utterly transforming the U.S. pickup market in the process.
