• Ford F-150 introduced four new engines in 2011, including the highly publicized 3.5L EcoBoost engine

• Chevy Silverado is also offering a four-engine lineup (plus a hybrid-specific powertrain)

• Both Ford and Chevy have been making claims on the web and in their advertising about the superiority of their pickups

Claim Showdown

• Claim:– Ford claims that its 5.0L V8 engine has the most

horsepower and torque of any comparable V8 engine.*• Answer:– While this is an interesting claim, Ford is perhaps

hoping you won’t bother to read their fine print. “*Small V8 engines of 5.0L or less displacement.”

– Our HEMI® beats Ford’s 5.0L V8 in power hands down

Page 14: Ram 1500 Competitive Comparison. Ram 1500 Competitive Comparison

Claim Showdown

• Claim:– Ford says its fuel-efficient EcoBoost 3.5L V6 puts out

comparable power to the HEMI® with better fuel economy

• Answer:– At first glance, that would appear to be true. But that’s

not the whole story by a long shot. Even if it truly does have similar real-world performance, the EcoBoost in a comparably equipped F-150 costs over $1,300 more than a Ram 1500 with a HEMI®

Page 15: Ram 1500 Competitive Comparison. Ram 1500 Competitive Comparison

Claim Showdown

• Claim:– Ford says its new EcoBoost engine can survive extreme

testing and has videos to prove it• Answer:– Like all of Ford’s testing, we have to take their word for

it. The fact is, none of Ford’s videos feature third-party verified testing. The EcoBoost video “experts” were all Ford employees.

– HEMI® is proven – six Ward’s Top Ten Engine awards and the economy of MDS FuelSaver technology

Page 16: Ram 1500 Competitive Comparison. Ram 1500 Competitive Comparison

Claim Showdown

• Claim:– Ford says they are the most fuel-efficient pickup manufacturer

• Answer:– Their biggest claims are with their V6 engines in the

F-150. Ford lines up their new 6.2L V8 vs Ram’s HEMI® , yet the 6.2L gets worse fuel economy than our HEMI®, and that’s certainly not best in class!

– A more realistic matchup is a comparably equipped F-150 with a 5.0L V8 vs Ram 1500 with a HEMI®. Almost identical in fuel economy, but HEMI® has more power

EcoBoost Testing

• Pickuptrucks.com tested two Ford F-150’s– 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine– 4,082 kg (9,000 lb) trailer

• Results– Stressed fuel economy figures– Fuel economy drop off likely worse than a traditional V8

• With a trailer hooked up– Rear wheels lost traction during acceleration – wheel hop

• Choose 5.0L for better fuel economy, or 6.2L for the heaviest trailers, or naturally aspirated 3.7L V6
