Ford's Coast-To-Coast EcoBoost Challenge made its way to Southern California last week. Events included head-to-head comparisons and a sneak peek at the 2015 Ford Mustang and F-150.
This Ecoboost powered 2.0L I-4 was onsite for comparison against the Honda CRV.
From left to right: Fiesta ST, C-Max Hybrid, F-150, Escape, Fusion. All here for folks to compare to comprable models in that segment.
Ford Fusion EcoBoost 2.0L I-4 vs. Toyota Camry in the EcoBoost Challenge.
Ford brought in some Toyota Prius-V's to compare the the C-Max. There was also the Fusion and C-Max Energi for drivers to test.
F-150 Ecoboost 3.5L V6 to compare to the Chevrolet 1500.
Ford set up a nice little autocross track so you could scrub a little bit of tread off the tires of the Ford Fiesta ST. This driver was pushing pretty hard to get some 3 wheel action.

On display was the 2015 Ford F-150 for folks to take a sneak peak.
Also on display for a sneak preview was the 2015 Ford Mustang, which Ford will be offering with a 2.3L Ecoboost I-4 engine.
The 2015 Ford Transit Connect was on display. This vehicle has a ton of room inside!

A list of the Ford vehicles that have the Ecoboost engine in them. 90% of Ford vehicles will be offered with an Ecoboost engine!
Just for kicks I added this shot of the 2015 Mustang's sexy new taillights.
