Sure, there are lots of car commercials this time of year featuring cars with big red bows on them. But does anybody actually buy a car as a holiday present? Well, who knows, but Ford Motor Co. says it sees a rush of online shoppers over the Thanksgiving weekend that would cheer any retailer.
Ford Motor Co. said Thursday that its EcoBoost engine equipped Ford F-150 pickup truck had reached 400,000 sales in the United State since its launch in February 2011.
NHTSA says it has received 95 reports of incidents of reduced engine power during hard accelerations in F-150 trucks equipped with 3.5L gasoline turbocharged direct injection engines.
Ford’s new pick-up truck, the 2011 F-150 with EcoBoost engine, is said to offer more power, and more powerful savings at the pump.
Ford is getting a 20-percent fuel economy boost in the F-150 by adding two V6 options by 2011.
