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.
Ford's EcoBoost Challenge in Southern California
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 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.
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.

Ford set up 3 different tracks for the different vehicles to be driven on. The F-150 just came out from the slalom, an area marked by the green cones in the background.
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.
